Job Description for Staff Engineer, Mechanical Engineering

Staff mechanical engineers (or staff engineers in mechanical engineering) work as part of a team to research, design, implement, and maintain engineering projects. Staff engineers work on (or lead) their team through a project's research and design phases; in this period, the team must assess the client’s needs, and then research and design appropriate solutions.
