Machine Design Engineer


Are you a Machine Design Engineer ready for your next challenge? We're looking for an engineering heavy-hitter to join our Bedding Division in Carthage, MO.


This isn't a role where you'll be making incremental improvements to existing products—we need someone who can build creative solutions from the ground up. That means we're looking for a well-rounded engineer, as they are twisting a wrench on prototypes.


You'll never be bored in this job; no two years will be the same as every problem we face requires unique solutions. If your portfolio displays expertise in electro-mechanical designs, we'd love to hear from you. A major component of this role will be the use of comprehensive design technologies, i.e. robotics, software, servo motion, pneumatics & electrical control, etc.  



  • Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering or related field required, advanced engineering degrees a plus
  • 3+ years of electro-mechanical machine design experience
  • Proficient in 3D modeling (SolidWorks experience a plus)
  • Demonstrated application of creative solutions
  • Experience working with robotics & automation preferred
  • A roll-up-your sleeves worth ethic


We offer a comprehensive benefits package. While benefits may vary by location, we typically include:  medical, dental, vision, discount stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement, employee discounts and more.


Since 1883, Leggett & Platt (NYSE: LEG) has been creating a wide variety of innovative products that can be found in most homes, offices, and automobiles.
