Careers

01. Production Engineer

RAD Propulsion is seeking a production engineer to help develop its products, systems, and processes, for volume production.

This role forms a key part of a small team with the common aim of delivering high quality, reliable consumer electric propulsion systems. The focus is on managing volume production of these systems but will inevitably span all engineering disciplines.

Working closely with other engineers and the chief technical officer, the production engineer will be responsible for overseeing production of RADs products through a combination of internal and external resources.

Aspects of the role include, but are not limited to:

  • Specifying, setting-up and managing an MRP system
  • Managing the product and component part-numbering system
  • Introducing and managing product serialisation
  • Ensuring products are made consistently and to high standards
  • Imparting knowledge of materials manufacturing techniques to influence product design
  • Ensuring production drawings and other materials are kept up-to-date with reliable revision control
  • Identifying and liaising with suppliers
  • Scheduling production runs to match demand
  • Defining processes and documentation to support product development
  • Undertaking self-directed training to learn new skills and systems as required for product development
  • Taking an active role in product design reviews with an emphasis on manufacturability

RAD Propulsion promotes a healthy work/life balance and while it is expected that you will enjoy your time at work, the RAD culture is one of “family-first”.

This is an opportunity to be part of the electric revolution and to contribute to meeting the ever-growing need for sustainability in marine transportation.

Candidate Profile 

The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of engineering principles and have real-world experience of marine products, how they perform in harsh environments and have an appreciation of how consumers interact with them. 

They will have a methodical approach to managing multiple concurrent activities and be meticulous in maintaining concise records.
