Systems Engineer (24590)

Cambridge (North)
up to £45k plus substantial bonus

Using disruptive technology to achieve energy efficiencies in harsh conditions

This well-funded privately owned start-up develops highly accurate and robust MEMS devices, used across a range of industries to mitigate wastage and produce real efficiencies. Each high value system is developed on a bespoke basis for clients. There are a number of technical challenges to overcome to maintain the accuracy in the difficult environmental conditions – high temperature and vibration. The engineers continue to push the boundaries in technical terms and new IP is being developed on an ongoing basis.

As the company expands, they seek a Systems Engineer with a diverse set of skills across hardware and software. The successful candidate will be a pro-active and enthusiastic engineer or physicist with a Masters or PhD in physics or electronic engineering (or similar).

The following skills and knowledge are of interest:-

  • Design and assembly of electronics, particularly with respect to EMC considerations, high temperature operation and complex grounding
  • Design and build of experimental apparatus for precision instrumentation
  • Code development for embedded microcontroller and DSP in C
  • PCB prototyping and debugging (preferably Altium)

This is a superb opportunity to strengthen your existing skills across a variety of areas working alongside the technology founders. As your knowledge develops, you will continue to drive the improvement of the software, electronic and mechanical systems.

The company offers an attractive salary together with a host of benefits, including on-site gym and café, annual bonus and flexible working options.
