Take the lead on testing safety-critical mechatronics

A leading developer of advanced mechatronics is seeking an experienced System Test Engineer to lead a small team in providing verification of performance and reliability for their products. This is an important role, ensuring the fitness for purpose of highly advanced and safety-critical devices.

Your daily activities might include items such as:

  • Defining and running test suites to exercise system functionality
  • Building testing infrastructure for software and hardware
  • Gain a thorough understanding of system functionality and ensure all aspects are fully documented and tested
  • Providing technical leadership of a small team of test engineers
  • Supervising and reporting on the progress of testing
  • Devising process improvements to the efficiency of test activities

This is a relatively young company with a dynamic outlook, and has a product with a well-researched and sizeable market. They are leading employers and their workplace culture and benefits will be a hard prospect to beat.

You will need:

  • A good degree in an engineering or scientific subject
  • A solid understanding of device-related risks in the context of safety-critical applications
  • Significant experience of planning and executing test plans involving both hardware and software.
  • Team leadership skills and experience

Experience of product development in a regulated industry, Python coding skills, model-based systems engineering skills, and experience of working within an Agile team are all beneficial but not essential.
