A small friendly electronics company working on bespoke instrumentation

This role is with a friendly electronics start-up, designing complex and bespoke instrumentation for top tier clients developing electronics and RF applications. This role would suit a self-starter, keen to learn new skills and take on challenging projects. A strong academic background in physics or a related discipline will be needed to provide insight into the underlying physical process, and good skills in Verilog and C++ will be needed for designing and controlling hardware.

Joining a small company, you would naturally be involved in all aspects of the technology as well as broader business activities, so the role has plenty of variety. Typical activities will include designing analogue and digital circuits, developing embedded software, preparing documentation, and contributing towards IT System and website maintenance. You will also liaise with customers, and this may involve occasional overseas visits when circumstances allow.

You will need:

  • A 1st class degree in physics or other applicable STEM subject from a leading university
  • A good understanding of electronics and low-level communications. Knowledge of the Bluetooth stack is of particular interest at this time
  • Excellent coding skills in C++ and Verilog
  • Full existing right to work in the UK without restriction, time limit, or sponsorship

The company are based in Cambridge. They are working remotely at present, but will continue to offer flexibility in the long term.
