Company Background. Double-Time Corporation creates proprietary consumer products
that expand the use of cellular communications and the wireless Internet. Based in Elmhurst, Illinois, Double-Time
is privately-held and backed by more than 30 successful entrepreneurs including Casey Cowell (founder of U.S.
Robotics), Glen Tullman (CEO of Allscripts) and the family partnership of Michael Birck (founder of Tellabs).
The company is currently launching its PowerClip cellular upgrade for the Nokia 51XX/61XX and Motorola
StarTAC phones and is developing other products on its PowerClip platform for other handsets. - Scope of
Position. We are seeking a high caliber mechanical engineer to drive our development and production projects.
We want self-directed, confident people who thrive in a fast-paced, independent setting and who can take
advantage of personal and professional growth opportunities. (We build electronic products, but the mechanical
engineers have equal influence and authority with our electronics people!) - Compensation. We pay competitive
salaries and focus our compensation program around meaningful equity incentives for all of our employees. (This
is one of those high-tech opportunities you keep reading about!) In addition, we offer all of the typical benefits of
health insurance, life insurance and 401(k). All employees receive three weeks of vacation and minimal
Qualifications. A deep personal commitment and a good sense of humor are
essential. It is important that you have hands-on experience (five or more years) in product design and
engineering for telecommunications, wireless, consumer or electronic product development. We use Pro/E and
expect that you're fluent with it. Our products are constructed exclusively of thin-wall plastic, so we're looking for
people with strong backgrounds in tooling, plastics and DFM. Strong organization skills (time management and
scheduling) are a survival necessity. We need people that can identify problems, but we really want people who
can solve them. We seek talented, professional people. Like everyone, we prefer people who have completed a
degree (B.S., M.S. in mechanical engineering), and the more degrees the merrier. But please note: we're not hung
up on the concept. We recognize professional development achieved through work experience.
