About Helpful Engineering

Helpful Engineering is an international, open-source community incubator focused on mobilizing people to help solve the Covid-19 pandemic and other critical issues. With thousands of volunteers worldwide, we support projects through innovations in engineering, community resources, software, and manufacturing. Most of the projects are focused on finding solutions to fix the lack of products used by healthcare professionals, including hardware and software, but also non-technical products like surgical masks.

We have engineers and doctors all around the world who are producing ventilators, protective equipment, websites, and systems to organize volunteers to assist their communities and medical workers. They are making heroic efforts to produce products in time to help the outbreak.

Volunteer Position Description & Responsibilities

Project RespiraWorks is designing a ventilator that has little mechanical complexity and is heavily dependent on software and controls. This design will simplify assembly and manufacturing, while a global volunteer workforce develops high quality software that is easy to reproduce and transmit.

In this role, you will lead the design of the pneumatic system and related interfaces (hardware & software) for a medical ventilator. You will be involved with improving the current design as well as developing design changes to incorporate features/functionality to meet the overall ventilator requirements.

Requirements

·      Degree in Mechanical Systems Engineering or Electrical Systems Engineering

·      Experience in designing pneumatic systems, pneumatic control systems, system integration & fluids engineering

·      Previous work with pneumatic systems for medical devices is a plus but not required

Our organization is organic, transparent, and follows the principles of open source and effective altruism. Helpful Engineering expects all volunteers to adopt a professional attitude and be respectful of their fellow volunteers, which includes politeness, punctuality, giving notice, and communicating openly and transparently their work and progresses.
