Technology leadership and product development

This is a demanding and challenging technical position with a leading Cambridge company that requires technical expertise in complex electromechanical systems and a well-developed, broad knowledge of engineering. A generous remuneration package and an exciting working environment, delivering cutting-edge equipment that will directly improve people’s lives is offered in return.

This vibrant company have a fast-paced environment and have committed to achieving excellence in their products deployed across the world.

You will help design and form systems that will monitor, predict and diagnose the status of their state-of-the-art medical technology. Your expert opinion will be highly valued by the team, who will look to you for guidance, and you will be an effective communicator, presenting your ideas to stakeholders regularly. It is envisioned that you will be kept focussed on the technology and will not have to be involved in the minutiae of team management, unless that type of responsibility is particularly attractive to you.

  • Python and C
  • Good appreciation of cloud software architecture
  • A background as a technical consultant, or in medical, aerospace or automotive product development

Full permission to live and work in the UK without time limit or restriction will also be required, as our client is unable to provide sponsorship.
