Senior Mechanical Design Engineer

Senior Mechanical / Design Engineer

Brewbot is building a tight-knit engineering team in order to work on the development of hardware for brewing. We are looking for a Mechanical Engineer or Design Engineer to drive the development of the Brewbot, including its housing, mechatronic fluid handling and brewing systems. You will lead the mechanical design effort for the product, working closely with embedded electronic engineers, test engineers, master brewers and fabricators. You will have a lot of freedom with the product development and able to make your own stamp on the product as well as the team and development lab. We are looking for a design led engineer able to think laterally using a user centered design approach.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a shining light of the Belfast start-up scene. You will get to work on a cutting edge product, within a company replicating a silicon valley start-up culture in our new space above our own craft beer emporium.

The design engineering team is tasked with designing the physical structure of Brewbot including its frame and mechatronic fluid handling systems. The team will develop concepts, fabricate and build prototypes and create drawings for manufacture. Some of your specific tasks as Senior Mechanical Design lead, leading this team would include;

  • Design and develop mechanical prototypes of structure and fluid handling systems
  • Design and oversee the implementation of cost-effective product modifications to drive improvements in cost, safety and reliability
  • Develop project specifications, 3D cad drawings and liaise with fabricators and manufacturers
  • Suggest product improvements, new methods of manufacture
  • Manage the process from design to production and handover procedures / documentation
  • Manage junior members of the team, work collaboratively with other disciplines such as test and electronics
  • Be very practical, hands on and love building things
  • Degree in Mechanical or Design Engineering (or similar).
  • 5-10 years of mechanical / design engineering experience in industry.
  • Experiencing designing products for mid-high volume manufacture
  • Commercial experience of bringing a product to manufacture.

Good to have

  • Some experience / understanding of the brewing process and brewing technology
  • Experience developing products for the food industry
  • Experience working with automated fluid handling systems
  • Experience working with fabricated metal, in particular stainless steel


Brewbot requires extensive testing. Our Brewing Evangelist often organises impromptu tastings, or as Matthew calls them "Beer 30". Brew your own beer, give it a name, design a label, and crack one open when you welcome visitors to the office.
