Highway1 Team

Jon Carver

Jon Carver's been at this for a while, so he knows what works and what doesn't. As Highway1's senior mechanical engineer, he says he sees himself "as a bit of a generalist; each day I have a chance to apply the full spectrum of what I've learned through my approximately twenty years in the field."

If you’re in need of someone with whom to brainstorm or bounce ideas back and forth, find Jon. But he’s not just big on early-phase work; he’s ready to consult on just about anything, from materials and processes to the development cycle itself to mechanism design.

Anything with moving parts is his specialty, and the more the better: “Mechanical complexity gets me excited,” he chuckles.

You don’t know what you don’t know — but that’s okay. If you haven’t given any thought to user research, failure modes, or optimizing your design process, well, that’s what we’re here for, he says. “Jon, how would you do this?” is something he never gets tired of hearing.
