Job Description for Senior Product Engineer

Senior product engineers are responsible for all aspects of the design, implementation, and management of new products' development. This involves taking customer needs and expectations, merging those with their design knowledge, and planning a new engineering product. Once a design has been established and all necessary consultation with clients and other engineers has occurred, the manufacturing process must be designed and implemented.

Senior Product Engineer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Senior Product Engineer?

Senior Product Engineer in Detroit:
"Workplace of choice."
Pros: Self management of work load.
Cons: Salary growth is lacking.

Senior Product Engineer in Chicago:
"The Need For Flexibility."
Engineers might be hired for their specific ability in a discipline BUT be prepared to be challenged to learn many things (on your own) well outside your specific ability. You were hired primarily because, as an engineer, you should be well organized, have the ability to research and learn new things on the run. Being able to multi-task is the name of the game. Learn to speak other disciplines', languages and understand their needs. Above all else, learn how to convey your thoughts clearly, concisely both verbally and in writing.

Senior Product Engineer in State College:
"Choose The Project/Product You Work On First Very Carefully."
Always think as a consumer. What is the consumer job you are trying to do and set cascading targets for automating that function with the MVP for each iteration.
