Are you an experienced Mechanical Engineer with an interest in working on new product development for Shure's legendary audio product portfolio? We want to hear from you!


In this role, as the Senior Mechanical Engineer, you will you will design and document the Electro-mechanical features for products, components, or systems of multiple levels of complexity as part of a phase gate approach to product design.  This is a highly visable role with the opportunity to support the development of lower-level Mechanical Engineers and technical staff.


This role will be hybrid based in our Niles, IL HQ. 


  • Develops and oversees the complex mechanical design, layout, testing, and evaluation of audio products and systems utilizing sound mechanical design fundamentals that meet Company standards.
  • Creates fully defined 3D models and associated 2D documentation using CAD software (Siemens NX).
  • Validates designs by testing and utilizing various techniques including tolerance analysis, FEA, DFM, and DFA, and occasionally CAE tools.
  • Produces component designs that can be manufactured using established processes such as injection molding, die casting, machining, and sheet metal forming; interacts with in-house Tooling Engineers and external suppliers as needed.
  • Helps fabricate design prototypes using appropriate methods such as SLA, 3D Printing, in-house model shop, etc.
  • Leads the design, performance, and evaluation of experiments to solve engineering problems, and validate simulation (e.g., FloTHERM thermal analysis) with empirical results.
  • Performs feasibility studies and testing on new and/or modified designs to resolve engineering problems.
