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. Then, they apply relevant testing, which typically involves tasks such as stress and fracture testing. After testing, project implementation occurs. Staff mechanical engineers must provide support to other engineers, clients, and/or employees in using the design project, which involves training, documentation, and updating the design with any necessary changes.
