Jim Bures AFTL

From 2019 to 2022, I worked for Raytheon Technologies as a Senior Technical Support Engineer I (Mechanical Designer). I designed and documented various parts of radar systems. I designed part of the SPY-6(V)4 Naval Radar System. I also focused on short duration projects that ranged from updating radar sites (large assemblies) to documenting various parts of radar support structures. I designed and documented using Creo/ProEngineer, AutoCAD, and Windchill/PDM. I worked for Raytheon for seven years from 1999 - 2006, where I led projects from conception to production, coordinated prototype manufacture and negotiated vendor quotes.

As a Product Engineer with EndoEvolution, from 2017 - 2019, I led the product development and support of the Endo360°, a laparoscopic suturing device. I maintained their Solidworks database, led design and documentation changes, improved manufacturing processes and led their technical communication. I was also responsible for updating their Graphic Design materials. EndoEvolution was successfully acquired in 2019.

I have a BSME from Tufts University. I also took Solidworks design classes from QCC and MassBay from 2015 through 2017 and in 2024. This education included design projects with local manufacturing companies. My portfolio here demonstrates my work at these schools. My talents have greatly progressed since, but the confidential nature of professional work precludes sharing more current design work. In 2016, I learned CNC manufacturing skills from WPI and MassMEP. I worked at two leading Massachusetts manufacturing companies following this education.

On a personal note, I earned an Associate's Degree in Graphic Design from Mt. Wachusett in 2011. I ran my own freelance company, All for the Lord, where I designed brochures, postcards, ads, tee shirts, logos, and websites, many times using my own custom photography. I've raised over $41,000 for charity in 24 years. I'm a cartoonist, I produce electronic music and I'm a believer.
