At Bellroy, we work hard to create products that make our customers’ lives easier, last a long time and stay true to their purpose. Our design approach is one of simplicity, more from less, and delivering form and function in equal measure – and the product development team is vital to bringing our designs to life in the most effective way. We’re looking for a Product Development Engineer to help us refine our designs and engineer them in preparation for manufacturing. This includes testing and pre-production prototyping (in-house and with external suppliers) as many times as it takes to ensure that the transition to production is seamless and well considered. So, if you can bring your practical expertise, critical desire for improvement and appreciation for good design, we’ll offer the tools for you to do your thing, a world-class crew to bounce off, and the support you need to flourish.
You have solid expertise in the production of soft and hard goods and will be happy to hit the ground running from day one. With exceptional project management skills, your experience comes from exposure to the full manufacturing process and stage gate management of products going to market. And most importantly, you can apply all that expertise to turn a design vision into something practical, realistic and production-friendly, while maintaining the integrity and character of the original design.
You’re persistent and committed to the end result. Just like our design team who hack, experiment and try different combinations until they find the best way to get all the elements working together, you take a similar approach. If something’s not quite right, you’ll go again. However many times it takes.
The comfort zone isn’t where you prefer to hang. Instead, you relish the ability to try new things, shift and adapt, and push for improvement in any way you can.
You love learning and progressing your skillset. That means you'll be comfortable talking about your weaknesses just as much as your strengths. And you care enough about the end result to seek input or offer a suggestion when an idea strikes. Which is awesome, because we’re a collaborative bunch who park their egos at the door. Step on in and you’ll see what we mean.
This is a full-time role located in Fitzroy, with some travel to our design lab in Bells Beach.
