Freelance cost expert - mechatronics designs: precision mechanics, actuators and electronics
At Vitestro, we are technology enthusiasts developing a completely new medical robotic system that has the potential to touch the lives of a billion patients. We are treading down a path where not many people have ever gone before.
You will be the go-to person for questions regarding cost estimation of designs in both the concept and detailed design phase. You will think along with the engineering team in the design process on how to reduce costs and increase reliability. You will provide input in the concept phase about the high-level design and most important buy-parts and in the detailed phase about specific choices for the make-parts. There is no need for application specific knowledge. You will not make designs yourself; you will only support the engineering team with making the right decisions.
As our ideal candidate:
o Buy-parts such as actuators, off-the-shelf electronics, bearings, linear slides, spindles, encoders, etc
o Make-parts such as turning, milling, sheet metal, etc
We are looking for a freelancer who can help us 8-16 hours per week.
