Job Description

Cambridge Elevating, the premium residential elevator manufacturer is looking to hire a full time Solidworks Designer. We are a growing company steadily increasing our market share in our industry.

As part of the compensation package, we offer benefits (after 3 months) and an RRSP contribution matching plan (after 1 year). Also, there are 2 weeks of vacation that accrue over time served.

Solidworks experience is required, but we have a high emphasis on work ethic, punctuality, and a good attitude. If you do not have these, please do not submit an application as it won’t lead to a good fit for either of us.

You’ll work with purchasing to cost out the job, make sure materials are available on time, and update the client on the lead times. You will also likely be called upon to help build some of the projects from time to time, so mechanical aptitude is a must!

Other custom requests that you’ll be facilitating could include unique electrical options like finger-print and retinal scanners to be incorporated into the system for security measures. Or how to tie the elevator into smart home systems.

There’s a lot to the job, but we have a fantastic team to support you and facilitate success for the right candidate.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Create and modify Solidworks models
  • Create production drawings and build instructions
  • Create 2D sales drawings for customers and builders
  • Cost out the custom materials for the projects
  • Read and interpret drawings from architects, spec sheets, etc
  • Work with home owners/dealers in person, on the phone, or via web conference

Knowledge/Skills:

  • Experience in Solidworks
  • Familiarity with AutoCAD
  • Understanding of manufacturing processes
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • Hands on and not afraid to build
  • Design experience
  • Top notch soft skills and attitude
  • This opportunity could be a great fit for CAD technicians, Engineering technicians, someone looking to build a sales career, someone with manufacturing experience who’s used CAD software in the past, or someone looking to join a successful team. We’re looking for a unique person for this role, so be sure you’re up to the task.
