Meyer Scott Ref: VR/05983
Our client is an accomplished small business that has remained founder run for over 20 years. This means the motivation to develop and produce second to none products is still very much at the heart of the business. Essentially the company design, develop and manufacture GPR tracking and monitoring systems for a worldwide customer base, mainly in organisations such as engineering investigation companies, universities, and government agencies.
The company is located between Ely and Cambridge with easy access to the A10. The hours of work are 9am to 5pm (35 hour week) with little need to work outside of these hours, giving an excellent life/work balance. There may also be scope for flexible working hours to fit with existing commitments such as childcare or evening education.
Aside from the founder, with whom you will work with very closely, you will be the primary innovator working from development through to manufacture of GPR systems. This will include design of new products as well as identifying opportunities to improve a product or achieve a bespoke solution as requested. You will be involved in the full 360 process including assistance with the safe and timely dispatch of the product. We would expect this to be a given as you will have been heavily involved to this point. In addition to your permanent colleagues you will be interfacing with suppliers such as contract board manufacturers, couriers, software contractors, quality auditors, and mechanical consultants who you will work with at the relevant stage of the project.
We are looking for a degree qualified engineer Electronics Engineer with the following skills & experience:
· You will probably have at least 3-4 years experience in a similar role and will have been involved in the full lifecycle of a high value low volume development environment. That said, if you are a bright graduate with a particular interest and focus within this technology sector and you are able to demonstrate your creative flair by means of your projects or hobbies, you may well be considered.
· Electronic RF Design and Debugging experience is required as is some knowledge of software design tools such as PCB layout systems, Spice or equivalent simulators, Matlab, and/or other programming tools. This will be to assist the software engineers in terms of the interface with the electronic capabilities of the system as opposed to full software programming.
· Working experience with oscilloscopes, spectrum analysers, signal generators and network analysers to identify circuit functions and diagnose faults.
An understanding of hardware/software interfacing e.g. a basic working knowledge of C and Verilog.
· Knowledge of FPGA and microprocessor designs and programming.
· Ability to write reports and documentation.
· Soldering, assembly & ability to supervise others in quality control.
· A degree or higher qualification in a relevant subject is essential, however a combination of some of the above, with the right design capabilities and aptitude will be considered.
· A knowledge of GPR technology would be lovely but given the specific nature of the product, it is not essential as the company will provide specialist training.
· An interest in the technology and in problem solving is, however, a distinct advantage. We are also looking for stability in building the business and are therefore interested in someone who sees the potential for long term prospects in working for the company.
If you are interested in being a bit part of a small team at a crucial time then get in touch, the future of the company is bright and it is a great time to cement your involvement and accountability to a developing client.
