Job Description

As a Mechanical Engineering Team Lead in the Module Development Department at Redlen Technologies, you will be part of the team responsible for driving the development of complex detector modules for X-Ray and CT scanning applications using Photon Counting Computed Tomography (PCCT) CZT sensors, through to NPI.

Reporting to the Director of Module Development, you will contribute to the design and production of solid-state radiation detectors & detector module assemblies.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Leading the electrical mechanical design team in the development of new detector modules; working through new product introduction (NPI) processes and documentation.
  • Developing, planning & executing on staff training/development needs, hiring plans, and technical resource requirements.
  • Collaboration with customer OEMs to clarify interfaces and constraints, ensuring mechanical and electrical integration of the detector module into the target system.
  • Ensuring the design meets the target module requirements and specifications, identifying and resolving gaps and issues, should they exist.
  • Collaboration with internal cross-functional teams including electrical, software, firmware, manufacturing, test.
  • Supporting the engineering activities related to existing designs and transfer to manufacturing.
  • Performing design activities that includes mechanical analysis, manufacturing and assembly tolerances, 3D CAD modelling (using Solid Works within EPDM), drawing creation and modification.
  • Selection of the appropriate materials, sources of supply, CAD data and specifications, that enable procurement of components in the product assembly.
  • Perform engineering analysis and establish environmental test plans to demonstrate product designs meet mechanical, thermal, and related performance requirements.
  • Participating in design reviews, product validation planning & execution when required.
  • Being a core team member of the Product Lifecycle MGMT (PLM) Implementation team.
  • Completion of engineering documentation to support assigned projects as well as executing engineering change orders as required (DWG and BOM changes, associated documentation, MFG process updates).
  • Support manufacturing engineers in the development of tooling and processes to manufacture module designs.
  • Assist the manufacturing and engineering teams in achieving cost-reduction goals on key products.


  • Minimum of 2 years’ experience leading technical teams in a NPI environment.
  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience in design and manufacturing of electromechanical components, electronics packaging, and assemblies in low-to-mid volume products.
  • Familiarity with new product introduction (NPI) in medical devices or another regulated industry (military, aerospace, automotive, telecom, etc.).
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills and demonstrated ability to communicate technical concepts and requirements clearly - both internally & in customer-facing situations.
  • Demonstratable experience in engineering documentation, change control, product lifecycle mgmt. & configuration mgmt.
  • Proficiency with Solidworks or similar 3D CAD programs.
  • Demonstrated experience of design-for-manufacturing concepts.
  • Solid understanding & demonstratable usage of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T).
  • Experience in thermal/ mechanical simulation & design for electronic assemblies.
  • Ability to thrive in an environment of ambiguity and uncertainty and able to rapidly understand new technologies and incorporate on-the-fly change of plans. 
  • Experience in FMEA & root cause analysis is considered a strong asset.

Skills/Additional requirements:

  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Hands-on approach to problem solving and desire to spend time on the production floor.
  • Exhibit a bias toward action, balanced by strong analytical decision-making skills.
  • Must possess excellent oral and written communications skills in English
  • Must have good interpersonal skills and be able to work in a team environment


Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical or Industrial Engineering, or equivalent
