This company is a world leader in technical innovation and design. Their products have gained widespread recognition by applying scientific insight to develop simple and efficient solutions to challenging problems. They’ve received awards across many industries, and contribute to fields such as bespoke commercial sensors, medical diagnostics, oil and gas technologies, consumer products, and public safety / defence.

They are seeking a select few Scientists or Engineers to join their multi-disciplinary R&D team, and contribute to projects that will result in real-world products that help people and have real outcomes. Candidates should have commercial experience, built on the foundation of an excellent academic background (2.1 or above in science / engineering from a top-tier university; strong A-level grades too!).

Your commercial experience should be product-focussed (rather than niche academic research), and you’ll have a portfolio of tangible, practical products that you’ve contributed to. These should be ‘hands-on’ products (handheld / desktop) rather than ‘factory’ equipment (anything larger than a car is probably the wrong scale for this company), and multi-disciplinary in nature. Specific experience with any of: (bio)sensing, algorithm design, MEMS, control systems, optics, physical chemistry or electronics would be a big plus.

On offer is a chance to work with a world-class team of some of the best and brightest scientists in the UK. Your work will make a positive impact across many industries, usually achieving praise and recognition for its innovation. The company is based just outside Cambridge, with modern offices, prototyping, test and manufacturing facilities on site. With a top salary and benefits package, together with plenty of amenities and mod cons on site, this is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wanting to make a powerful impact in technical product development.
