Irving Hu

Principal Mechanical Engineer

San Francisco

Irving is a Senior Mechanical Engineering Tech Lead with a passion for turning innovative ideas into real products. After spending over a decade building new products, Irving knows how to cut through the fuzzy front end to distill concepts into engineering requirements, as well as, maintain focus and lead his team to get work done. He has led projects at Synapse from early concept and feasibility analysis to press side tool validation and line bring up in China.

Irving’s major product design successes over the last half decade are protected by client confidentiality, but the fact that clients continue to bring follow-on work speaks for itself. In his early career he lead a team to design an orthopedic brace that received a Red Dot Life Science and Medicine award in 2011.
