About Baraja

Baraja is changing the world of self-driving cars through the invention of a new type of LiDAR called Spectrum-Scan™ that delivers ultra-high performance at high resolution, even at incredibly far distances. Today, Baraja LiDAR is already deployed in multiple verticals, working with global automotive and industrial partners.

Originally founded in Sydney, Australia, we also have offices in San Francisco, China and Europe. We are funded by Sequoia, Blackbird and Main Sequence Ventures and we are excited to continue growing the team, so if you are looking for a fast-paced, dynamic role in a start-up we are keen to hear from you!


The Opportunity
We are looking for a Component Engineer to join our growing Advanced Manufacturing department, engaging with various component and part manufacturers to develop, source and qualify mechanical parts used in the assembly and build of both prototype and released products to manufacturing. Reporting to the NPI Engineering Team Leader, you will be responsible for new and existing mechanical components. 

Inside the Job

·        Work closely with product development, manufacturing and other teams to ensure part component requirements are verified and met

·        Develop new mechanical inspection jigs, processes and methods that will improve measurement accuracy and improve component quality

·        Drive component quality improvements by identifying supplier manufacturing issues, working with suppliers to develop cost-effective solutions, and overseeing successful implementation at the supplier facility. 

·        Ensure new components in prototypes, new products, and product improvements are reviewed for supplier manufacturability and cost

·        Engage closely with manufacturing to ensure any mechanical component issues are captured, addressed and resolved in a timely manner

·        Support Supply Chain on technical component discussions with existing suppliers



About You

·        3+ years’ experience in Mechanical Component and Jig Design

·        Experience working with MRP/ERP Systems

·        Proficient in statistical analysis methods to establish supplier performance

·        Experience working with various mechanical component suppliers



·        Tertiary qualifications in Mechanical Engineering

·        Experience in CMM or Vertex program development

·        Experience working with automotive products or customers


Be part of a high-performance team

We work toward our goals by being in constant communication in person and through a range of technologies. We also have big ears for feedback from customers to help us continually improve the Baraja experience. We are pretty good at what we do (but not perfect), so you’ll be learning from and working with a top-flight team on a mission to be better every day.


What matters to us

We believe that our culture is one of our most important assets and we’ve wrapped it up with three key values that we do our best to live up to every day:  

·       Hustle to deliver on hard and meaningful problems - Passion to achieve. Resilience & learning. What's the next challenge?

·       Develop sustained high performance - It’s not enough to design amazing products, we need to design the means to manufacture these products, at scale.

·       Build the machine that builds the machine - Great teams make great things. They also respectfully challenge each other to reach the next milestone.
