We are now looking for a Mechanical Engineer with a deep passion for innovation and technology, who’s looking to take the next step in their career. This is a wonderful opportunity where your expertise will be relied on in many areas; from concept design to hardcore engineering.

The position

We are looking for a skillful player with experience in the development of consumer products. In your role as a mechanical engineer at Above, you will be involved in the whole development process, ranging from early concepting phases all the way through to setting up production with suppliers around the world. Projects can range from two weeks of prototype sprints to complete projects lasting around a year.

About you

We believe in creating a culture where you as an individual can thrive. Successful candidates at Above love what they do and feel comfortable collaborating together in multidisciplinary teams as well as independently.

Your drive to learn and improve is the most important quality we’re looking for as we work on some of the world’s toughest challenges for companies that share our mission— driving positive change. You are humble enough to take direction and brave enough to offer critical feedback, with a personality that enhances the dynamics of the team spirit.

Although you are self-driven and incredibly agile, we are a large team with expertise within different fields, so there are always people to help you when you bump into obstacles.

Skills & Requirements

Skills we’re looking for are

  • Minimum B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering or similar with 2+ years of relevant experience
  • Passion for 3D modeling, with Solidworks, CREO or Catia as weapon-of-choice
  • Rapid concepting and prototyping. Hands-on experience building product prototypes in lab and workshop
  • Developed consumer products in cross-functional teams
  • Outside-the-box approach to mechanical engineering

Some nice to haves are

  • Plastic design experience
  • Surface modeling skills
  • Experience in integrating electronics, user interfaces, or similar
  • Been a part of full program projects from concept work all the way to production

A bit about Above

Above is a mirrorball of highly diverse competencies, nationalities, and backgrounds. And each and every one of us is devoted to creating value in people’s everyday lives. We are experts in breaking down boundaries between the physical and the digital with the fusion of hardware and software through products and services. We work with the full stack: from strategic concepting all the way through to manufacturing.

One of our core philosophies is that we believe in prototyping early and often by bringing designers and engineers together from the very start of a project. If our designers can understand and make technology decisions, while our engineers can grasp and influence the user experience, then we can truly find a meaningful collaboration that results in actual relevant products.

We work with amazing international brands, local Scandinavian heroes, and a fantastic collection of startups. We also have a passion for creating our own products and have a good track record of successful start-up ventures. We’re a team of warm, welcoming, dedicated professionals that love to build cool stuff. In everything we do, we strive for a world-class result and we believe you share that mindset.

About our creative culture

Our culture heavily relies on creative teamwork where everyone is an important decision-maker. You will be able to influence ideas, platforms, and upcoming briefs as part of a multidisciplinary team. Observing, reflecting, and making is the approach that the team uses to overcome our everyday challenges together.
