ABOUT THE JOB
Peak Design traditionally has made both hard goods and soft goods (think tripods and backpacks) and recently has made its first foray into electronics as part of our mobile ecosystem. This is an engineering role focused on electrical development and testing of new wireless charging products for our mobile line. You will also take on the occasional product upkeep project, i.e. fixing a problem with a product currently in production.
Your day to day will, at a most basic level, consist of lots and lots of research, hands-on prototyping and testing. At Peak Design our designers are responsible for owning parts and assemblies from concept through to mass production. This includes everything from the early stage product definition work, but also that “last 5%” that takes as long as the first 95%.
Independence and self sufficiency is key to success at Peak Design. You will not work in a vacuum, but our design team depends on individual autonomy and proactivity. The expectation is that after a couple of design cycles you have developed the skills necessary to lead development of new products with minimal oversight.
