About the Role:

Our early-stage start-up is looking for a CAD/Surface Sculptor to support the design and development of our first publicly available VR headset. The CAD/Surface Sculptor will collaborate closely with Industrial Designers and Product Design Engineers who have successfully shipped AR/VR hardware from companies like Apple, Sony, and Meta.

From the early concept stage to the manufacturing and launch, you will own a new discipline within the design team. You will explore, prototype, and build experiences that define the future of how people interact with wearable technology.

Your Responsibilities:

  • Work across the full product development cycle, from concept inception and prototyping to production. You will help us shape ideas into reality. 

  • You will own the production of the class-A surfacing and your workstream. 

  • Work closely with ID to generate rapid concepts.

  • Ensure all Class-A criteria, such as feasibility, fit and finish, surface quality, and tolerance, meet design and production requirements.

  • Own and manage a new discipline within the design team. You might need to leverage the CM ID resources to help with the modeling and work with overseas modeling talent (Asia-based).

Your Qualifications:

  • At least 3+ years (preferably 5+) of experience as a surface modeler on class-A surfaces, working in consumer electronics, wearables, automobiles, AR/VR, or consumer-oriented robotics.

  • Proficiency in NURBS modeling (Alias, Rhino, etc.)

  • A good understanding of parametric CAD modeling (NX preferred, Solidworks, etc.)

  • The ability to work and integrate between the ID and PDE workstreams.

  • An understanding of the full design and development lifecycle, including ideation, prototyping, development, testing, and tooling.

  • A willingness to learn and participate in parallel workstreams (Industrial Design, User Experience, Prototyping, Product Design Engineering).

  • An understanding of basic manufacturing and prototyping techniques.

  • Experience in industrial design, digital design, model making, product design, or related fields is desired.

  • Preferably have experience working with an overseas contract manufacturer and/or experience working with Asia supply chain vendors.

  • Ability to travel, as required, up to 10% (foreign and domestic)
