Touchscreen Product R & D Manager (26020)

£60k - £80k DoE + benefits

Managing the development of embedded technologies from concept to maturity

A great opportunity to lead the development of new high-resolution touch-screen products for an established international company who provide versatile electronic control systems used across a range of high-tech application areas.

Responsibilities include evolving the R&D roadmap, managing projects, budgets, and external collaborations, and progressing research concepts through to a state where they can be incorporated into future products. The role is highly technical in nature, and a deep understanding of electronics and embedded software are just as essential as project management and team leadership aptitude. Some prior understanding of user interfaces and products based on touch technologies is required.


  • A 1st or 2.1 in an applicable STEM subject from a well-respected university.
  • Expertise in leading and managing substantial interdisciplinary research and development projects.
  • A technical background encompassing electronics, cross-platform software development, and touch screen technologies.
  • Full existing right to work in the UK without restriction, time limit or sponsorship.

Based at the company’s Sussex offices with some opportunity for remote working, the global scope of the work may occasionally involve some UK and international travel to their other offices. Their culture is fun, fast-paced, and collaborative; they pride themselves on their ability to adapt quickly and take on challenging projects. A competitive salary and benefits package is on offer to the successful candidate.
