Farmshelf is an early-stage high-growth startup that builds smart indoor farms. Our bookshelf-sized Farmshelfs provide leafy greens and herbs year-round to food halls, corporate cafeterias and restaurants, including those of acclaimed chefs José Andrés, Marcus Samuelsson, and Claus Meyer. Together, our team of engineers, designers, fabricators, technicians and plant scientists take on the challenges of creating agricultural technology innovations to feed our growing urban populations.
We are looking for a Mechanical Designer for a 4-6 month project. You will work with the engineering team to design the next generation of Farmshelf products. You will get deep into the weeds of the design and will work closely with industrial designers and mechanical engineers to create detailed designs of parts and assemblies, create detailed drawings as well as other engineering documentation (such as specification), and perform some prototype testing.
Due to the fast-paced nature of the organization, you will need to be able to work on many projects simultaneously and work with the engineering team to take results from testing and modify designs. This position requires a motivated and enthusiastic individual who cares deeply about their own and their team’s work and can execute responsibilities with little supervision.
You must be able to work on-site in our New Lab office in Brooklyn.
