My name is Jacob Rader, I'm a design engineer currently living in Austin, Texas.
I am formally trained as a mechanical engineer but my interest and study over the last year has been in design. My goal is to find a position where I can merge my experience and perspective as an engineer with my passion for design.
I have experience taking products and ideas from concept to production while balancing the intent of a designer with the requirements of manufacturing. I place a high value on the prototyping process and in keeping an open dialogue between all the concerns in a project.
I'm looking for a creative environment where I can learn and grow in while still being a valuable asset in the creation process.
I am also available for project and contract work.
