£50k - £60k DoE + good benefits

Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

Analogue and mixed-signal electronics are key factors

This is a great opportunity to influence the early design of an electronic sensor as part of a highly-skilled multi-disciplinary team within a young start-up. You will be a self-starter, confident enough to set the direction and have a natural desire to innovate. As an engineer you will have a broad electronics background.

This Cambridge based start-up is developing a leading edge sensor for the consumer electronics, automotive, and industrial markets. They work with Tier 1 OEMs who adopt their technologies into products worldwide.

You will need to have a good degree along with significant knowledge of the following:

  • An overall understanding of analogue, mixed-signal and low-noise design
  • Getting your own prototypes built (this is a start-up)
  • Wide knowledge of electronics design software
  • An analytical approach to understanding fundamental equipment behaviour
  • Exposure to writing automated instrument control and characterisation scripts
  • Low-noise measurement techniques and possibly piezoelectric devices
    Fluency in either Mandarin Chinese or German language will be beneficial but not essential to help with conference calls.

In addition to your technical excellence, you will need good communication skills, to show initiative, make decisions, and operate in a team. This is a great opportunity to join a start-up based in Cambridge, with the benefit of a competitive salary, bonus, holiday and pension.

Keywords: Hardware Design, Analogue, Mixed-signal, Low-noise, Sensors, Altium, Cambridge
