Exciscope is looking for a Mechanical Engineer!

Exciscope is a recently founded tech company, but the technology we use is based on many years of academic research and experience. The present team consists of both employees and consultants that are experts in various fields, such as x-ray science, image processing, software engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, product development and regulatory affairs.

The Exciscope technology provides the next-generation 3D x-ray microimaging. We build phase-contrast x-ray imaging systems featuring unprecedented resolution, contrast, and speed. Our x-ray microimaging produces cellular-resolution 3D volume images of centimeter-sized samples, with excellent contrast in soft materials, such as biomedical tissues, food, and plastic. The Exciscope technology will open new market segments for industrial inspection and product development in addition to enabling virtual histology for medical applications.

Your role

We are developing our first product, a standalone x-ray phase-contrast tomography system. This development is composed of many parts ranging from x-ray physics, image quality, application understanding, hardware design, and software design.

We have soon finished the design and construction of our first prototype. Based on that, you will take the lead of the mechanical engineering of both the overall system design and smaller parts. Working in a small and diverse team, you will have to design with the full product lifecycle in mind and collaborate with colleagues who are experts in a different field. Your role will include making conceptual designs, design for manufacture and assembly, part specifications, communicating with manufacturers, and coordinating with the team to fulfill functional and regulatory requirements.

Your profile

To succeed in this role, we believe that you have a big interest and understanding in the complete lifecycle of mechanical components and knowledge of geometrical product specifications (ISO 8015). You have experience in designing for manufacture and have good knowledge of different manufacturing methods. You have experience in working with PDM systems.

We expect that you are an open-minded person who likes innovation and learning new things. If something unexpected arises, you are not afraid to get your hands dirty to solve the problem.

Additionally, we think you have:

  • An academic degree in mechanical engineering or similar
  • At least 7 years of professional experience in mechanical engineering
  • Great knowledge in 3D-CAD, preferably in SolidWorks.
  • Professional knowledge in English and Swedish
  • Interest in LEAN-development and LEAN-production
