Ooni is looking for a customer-focused Senior Design Engineer to join our awesome Product team and ensure we continue to deliver on our promise of providing world class pizza ovens and accessories.

 You will:

  • Be asked to design complex sheet metal, injection molded, and cast parts and their assemblies in Solidworks
  • Live our value of innovation, bending the rules of DfM/DfA, to explore new technologies, materials, and processes

You will be involved in ensuring our impact on the planet is minimised.  We take our responsibilities to sustainability very seriously and seek to make improvements in our products and processes wherever we can.
