Main Duties and Responsibilities

As a Senior Mechanical Engineer, the candidate shall be able to lead multiple project teams in the development of drawing packages, specifications, and reports for the completion of assigned projects. The candidate must exhibit a complete understanding of engineering principles, theories, typical applications, codes, standards, published recommendations, and concepts associated with the mechanical engineering as required to complete project or system designs. Additionally, the candidate must have experience in the management and development of engineering teams. The Senior Mechanical Engineer will typically operate as Mechanical Engineer of Record for the assigned project(s) and lead and delegate assignments to the engineering and design support staff assigned to the project. This candidate must have the ability to schedule and forecast the assigned team over the duration of the project(s) and manage the engineering team within the project schedule and budget constraints as defined by the executed contract. This candidate shall be responsible for all mechanical project deliverables and associated engineering analysis and calculations, which shall include: 

  • Equipment sizing, specification, and selection

  • Mechanical system analysis (e.g., flow, pipe stress, vibration, pulsation, heat transfer, temperature control, etc.)

  • Generation and documentation of supporting calculations

  • Equipment layout

  • Pipe sizing, specification, and layout

  • Cross discipline coordination

  • Participation in project related meetings

  • Data acquisition to support essential design functions

  • Development of drawing packages that contain but is not limited to the following:

    • Site plans depicting locations of mechanical equipment locations and associated pipe routing​

    • Mechanical equipment and piping plans and sections

    • Mechanical general arrangement (GA) drawings

    • Piping Isometrics (ISOs)

    • Mechanical bills of material (BOM)

    • Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs)

    • Piping and Instrument Diagrams (P&IDs)

  • Development of Contractor Scopes of Work and/or Engineering Instructions

  • Develop or participate in the development of proposals based on client Requests for Proposal or form
