Alex Taylor

Mechanical Engineer

I am a Mechanical Engineer with over a decade of professional experience, on top of a lifetime of natural curiosity about how things work. I find great satisfaction in helping people solve problems, which can be through a new product, process, or simply working with someone on a challenging issue. I have a keen eye for detail while also thinking at a system level.

I have experience with new product design for high and low volumes, with a focus on verification and validation of designs, in a variety of industries: consumer electronics, durable goods, chip manufacturing, and medical devices. I work well on any team size, including individually. My past duties have included: concept development/selection, new part creation/documentation, BOM management, testing, failure analysis, first article assembly/debug, interfacing with systems, electrical, SW/FW, and other engineering disciplines to meet client deliverables. I look forward to being able to work with you on your next project!
