Engineering has an immense impact on the way we live our lives. Almost everything around us – from our water systems, to our Facebook accounts, to the highways that connect us and the medical equipment that save lives every day – owes a part of its existence to engineers. Our goals at NOVIN Technology Solutions (NTS) are ambitious and require more resources than we can imagine. Together, we can create products that can help improve and save lives of the poor in developing countries around the world. Apply today and become our superstar!

OPPORTUNITY SUMMARY

NOVIN, a nonprofit based in Walnut Creek, CA, is seeking a driven, socially-committed, entrepreneurial individual with a mechanical engineering background and strong CAD skills to join our design team. In a period of 3-6 months, we will challenge you to develop a functional prototype of a new product that could be used in developing countries.

As part of the design team, you will learn and apply NOVIN’s product development process, which will include market research, the development of product specifications and requirements, and many iterations of concept development, testing and revision.

During the sprint, you will:

  • Brainstorm product concepts
  • Model and render product features, parts and assemblies in CAD
  • Create photorealistic renderings of your final 3D design
  • Create 2D manufacturing drawings
  • Build and test prototypes

QUALIFICATIONS

  • You have some project experience under your belt and you’re excited to take on challenges. You enjoy collaborating with a team, but you’re also a good fit with NOVIN’s culture of self-education and DIY.
  • Rising senior or master’s degree in mechanical engineering
  • Strong CAD skills: SolidWorks (2D & 3D)
  • Rapid prototyping experience such as work with Arduino preferred
  • International and/or social sector experience would be an advantage but not required
