Design Engineer

To keep pace with advancements in LED technology and changes in architectural design, SPI Lighting has an immediate opening for a talented product Design Engineer to join our Engineering team. Our team members feel ownership over projects and enjoy thinking through problems, not just on a computer, but on the work bench too. 

We are looking for an individual who can creatively and elegantly take an architectural lighting project from concept to production. You will be a lead in the design process, which may include tasks from concept to development, feasibility studies, CAD modeling, and BOM creation, to prototype construction, product testing, marketing support, and production ramp-up. 

We desire a candidate to have 5+ years of experience in product design. In addition to 3D CAD experience (Autodesk Inventor® is a plus,) the candidate should have strong mechanical aptitude and be knowledgeable in a variety of manufacturing processes. Computer rendering and lighting specific experience is highly desirable. We typically look for candidates with backgrounds in mechanical engineering, but value experience in industrial design as well.

Becoming an employee with SPI Lighting can generate opportunity for you in the future.  We have a collaborative and welcoming environment.  You would have the opportunity to earn competitive wages and benefits. We invest in cross-training and offer opportunities to expand skills by working with other departments or taking on management responsibilities. Metal fabricators have become engineers, temporary workers have been promoted to team leads, and entry-level employees have grown into directors.
