Our client is an industry leader in world-class materials management and classification software solutions. Their products are used by high-profile clients worldwide to accelerate new product development, allowing engineers to intuitively compare complex multivariate data and make informed choices during the design process saving money and time.
With an ever-expanding functionality to their software, they are now tackling the use of hazardous or dangerous materials in industry. Their goal is to help companies minimise and eventually eradicate the use of these chemicals in their products by providing data on alternative materials or production processes. To help them with this work, they now seek an experienced engineer, chemist or materials scientist, experienced in the procedures and regulations relating to hazardous materials, to join their team.
Coming from a science background, you will have a good degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or Materials Science from a leading university. A further postgraduate qualification (a masters or PhD) would be welcomed, but isn’t mandatory. A broad knowledge of the chemical composition of a variety of substances is required, and you will have had experience of working with a number of regulated materials in an industrial setting. You will also have an excellent understanding of the regulatory procedures and mechanisms (such as REACH or RoHS) which are key to many manufacturing processes.
You will be working in a team developing software and tools for the management of these materials in industry. You will be able to advise on protocols and industry best practice to incorporate these standards into a software used worldwide, contributing to increasing industrial safety standards for generations to come.
Based in central Cambridge, our client offers a modern and relaxed working environment, working with friendly, like-minded people. A competitive salary is supplemented by benefits, which can include share options, health and insurance benefits or local gym membership. If this sounds like the opportunity for you, don’t hesitate to apply now!
