Senior Mechanical Engineer/ Product Design Engineer

Who We Are
Typhur Technology is a technological innovation enterprise focusing on cooking science. Starting from the early stage of the wave of smart kitchen appliance innovation, Typhur is committed to becoming a leading brand among competitors. Typhur Technology's focus is on the fusion of cutting-edge technology with world-class design to deliver an unparalleled user experience. At Typhur, we expertly harness the powerful, complex forces of nature and transform them into the perfect cooking media so that everyone can prepare perfect meals at home.
Working at Typhur is more than just a job. We are a group of people who are passionate about the science of cooking and shaping the future of people's cooking behaviors via our game-changing products and services. Join us in defining the future of the smart kitchen.
About the Role
Now, we’re hiring an outstanding senior mechanical engineer/product design engineer who can use their proven experience and track record to help us design, innovate and deliver the future of smart cooking appliances.
Key Responsibilities
  • Communicate ideas quickly and effectively using a combination of sketching, CAD layouts, 3D.
  • Work closely in a cross matrix organization and independently to research, define and develop smart cooking appliances.
  • Developing electromechanical control systems involving heat transfer, kinematics, electronics, and control software.
  • Own projects, manage schedules, establish "good enough" criteria, hold meaningful gate reviews, and deliver in a fast paced environment.
  • Characterize kinematic and thermal systems to develop firm, grounded empirical based theories and design decisions.
  • Develop basic electronic systems and control software for prototyping. You will not be expected to spin your own boards. You will be expected to be able to talk enough "EE".
  • Develop and design with a physics first approach.
  • Quickly design and iterate on systems by sketching, quick prototyping, and clear communication.
  • Recognize that engineering is only useful if it helps solve user needs. Be sensitive to the user.
  • Collaborate openly with colleagues, accept criticism, and embrace growth.
  • Solidworks.
  • Bachelor's level degree in Product Design Engineering, Mechanical or Industrial Design Engineering.
  • Intimacy with heat transfer, thermal system characterization, and prototyping thermal systems.
  • Experience with components such as motors (DC, stepper, actuators, etc), linkages and similar kinematic designs, pumps, and 120VAC heating elements.
  • Rapid prototyping and familiar with sub-system up design approach.
  • Positive attitude with an inquisitive and curious nature.
  • Willingness to present and advocate a point of view across an organization.
  • A strong self-driven mindset with a clear eye on the goals of the product and business.
  • Experience with or willing to explore the dynamic physics of food.
  • Experience with food chemistry and food science is a plus.
  • Developed complex mechanisms for "higher load" environments.
  • Experience with reliability, quality, manufacturing (part and/or FATP), China, and consumer electronics is a plus.
Our Purpose
Typhur exists to bring the power of cooking science into every home.
At its core, cooking is the act of deliberately managing a set of delicate reactions between ingredients, temperature, humidity and time; all to create a specific result. Master chefs have long understood these relationships and how they critically impact flavor, texture and the sheer enjoyment of food.
Typhur has codified these relationships and places this scientific understanding of incredible food at the core of its product design. It is the discipline behind the art. It is cooking science, and it’s objectively delicious.
Our Promise
Typhur makes advanced cooking technology accessible to the everyday home cook.
Today, there is a barrier between most home cooks and an incredible world of deep and profound food pleasure – the complexity, whether real or perceived, of advanced cooking techniques. These cooking methods are scientifically proven to deliver better results: more intense flavors, even texture and even more nutritious food.
By taking these techniques and stripping away the complexity, making them efficient, and bringing a new level of understanding around why it delivers better results, Typhur builds kitchen appliances that anyone can use to prepare the perfect meal at home.
Our Culture
  • At Typhur, we have a bias towards employee empowerment. We hire people who can manage their schedules and workflows in the pursuit of our overall company goals.
  • We hire people who are intellectually curious and committed to getting the job done, whether that means physical prototyping, mock-ups, or deep research and development.
  • Ours is a culture of belonging that fosters collaboration and transparency where everyone’s voice adds value, work is rewarding, and we celebrate our wins. Employees are confident about bringing their authentic self to work every day and every day is a team effort.
  • Our focus is cooking science. A passion for the world of cooking and cooking equipment is key in helping us to think outside the box and develop outstanding user experiences that define this category.
