About Hyperframe

Hyperframe develops novel building materials and software that enable stunning increases in construction productivity. Our products will be used to perform key trades on high-rise buildings at more than 10x the speed currently possible.

We are tackling metal wall framing first. We've created a tool-free assembly system that is installed using the Microsoft HoloLens mixed reality headset. And that's just the beginning. Join us on our mission to make building dramatically faster, safer, and less expensive.


As a Manufacturing Design Engineer, you will conceptualize, implement, and optimize manufacturing processes to improve Hyperframe’s production line for our ultra-labor-efficient building assemblies. You will lead every aspect of manufacturing design – from brainstorming through production qualification and ramp – while simultaneously optimizing the operator's ease-of-production and ensuring the product is being manufactured with a low scrap rate. Successful candidates have a strong background in production fixturing design; broad familiarity with other high volume manufacturing processes and fastening methods; and experience designing implementing automation for pre-existing processes.

At Hyperframe, you will join a high-caliber, multidisciplinary team of software engineers, mechanical engineers, manufacturing engineers, and product leaders. Ideal candidates can communicate their design concept quickly through sketches, 3-D models, and low-fidelity mockups. You are able to communicate your design concept to both engineers and non-technical personnel. We are looking for candidates who thrive on solving very challenging problems and enjoy using their mind creatively.


· Investigate, justify, and implement automation and new technology opportunities.

· Create all 3D models and technical documentation

· Set up control systems to automate existing processes and design new automated processes to enhance efficiency

· Suggest and aid in implementing product redesigns to reduce cost and cycle time

· Achieve the optimal balance of part quality, part cost, and manufacturing equipment investment

· Assist in generating CAD documentation, authoring SOPs and test instructions, and creating/updating PFMEAs while ensuring that necessary verification and validation activities are performed according to Quality Systems Regulations


· An enthusiasm for tool-free assembly

· A deep understanding of metal stamping, metal fastening techniques, commercially available materials (primarily steels), and formability principles

· The ability to create and analyze tolerance stack-ups

· A penchant for Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) principles

· The ability to adapt to continually evolving design requirements, and the enthusiasm to influence them

· The ability to rapidly generate many ideas, and cycle through multiple concepts before settling on an optimal solution

· Humility and empathy for the customer

· A proclivity to learn


· Acted as the primary responsible engineer on at least one project that involved control panel design, machine programming, and mechanical design, that was part of an assembly line

· You have (New Grad: 0-2 years) (Senior: 5+ years) of manufacturing system design

· Evidence of exceptional ability (4-year engineering degree not required)
