Their novel tools are the products based on their own in-house scientific R&D expertise. They currently are recruiting for a Systems Engineer to provide both firmware and software engineering knowledge for new instruments – this could include: working with embedded processors and electronic sensors; Windows PCs via USB or wi-fi; or signal processing.

  • High level programming experience with ideally C#.NET or C++ (including multithreading).
  • Past exposure using electronics debugging real-time system tools (JTAG, oscilloscopes, logic analysers).

This is an interesting role for the right candidate to join and take a key position. Pro-activity and self-motivation are important as the team are keen to recruit someone who can work independently on multidisciplinary projects.

All applicants must have the right to work in the UK, and preference is for someone based in London or who is looking to relocate to London.
