Working within a diverse multi-disciplinary team we’re looking for electronics engineers to:

  • Design highly integrated circuit boards which have a mixture of power, digital and analogue electronics for robotic systems
  • Capture schematics and guide the PCB layout process to ensure new and updated designs meet mechanical and regulatory constraints
  • Work with mechanical, software and manufacturing teams to ensure designs are optimised for integration with other system components and the manufacturing process
  • Write documentation for requirements, design and manufacturing test specifications
  • Debug issues at PCB and system level and write technical documents to support findings
  • Work with internal and external manufacturing partners to help maintain a design that can be manufactured and tested reliably and repeatedly
  • Work at all stages of the design cycle from concept and requirements capture through to transferring the design to manufacture

About you:

Ideally you will be qualified to degree level in electronics or a related discipline with a few years’ experience developing electronics for real world applications. You will be an enthusiastic and proactive team player and keen to produce work to the highest standards.

  • Good practical knowledge of analogue and digital electronic circuit design
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Familiarity with common lab test equipment

Experience of the following would also be desirable:

  • Design for manufacture and test
  • Product design processes such as requirements capture, change control, verification, manufacturing and risk analysis methods such as FMEAs
  • Familiarity with designing to medical, safety and EMC standards
  • Designing with programmable logic such as FPGAs and CPLDs
  • Embedded and scripting software (C and Python)
  • Designing electronics in a multi-disciplinary team

The package:

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package including non-contributory pension, private healthcare and a bonus scheme. In addition, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork.
