Hardware / Electronics Engineer - Grad or PhD (26588)

up to £50k DoE plus benefits

Simulate DSP processing algorithms and design hardware for extreme environments

A technical consultancy creating pioneering technology for the defence industry is seeking talented hardware and electronics engineers to join their team of consultants based in Surrey, to work on several UK government and defence-related projects.

Candidates should be self-motivated and will enjoy hands-on technical challenges where they are given the space to explore and develop their projects. They will have good knowledge of FPGA development in VHDL, particularly in signal and image processing algorithms. They will also need experience of embedded C/C++ and good familiarity with PCB design and layout techniques (particularly utilising OrCAD), together with Linux device driver development. Experience of PCB fabrication and testing of related firmware and software would be beneficial, but not mandatory.

As a successful candidate, you will have excellent qualifications with a 1st/2.1 in a numerate subject from a top university, with top A-level grades (including Maths and Physics). Commercial experience or a PhD will be welcomed, though ‘fresh’ graduates will also be considered. The company offers an excellent salary package for all levels of experience, together with top benefits and a generous pension contribution.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the work carried out by the firm, this role is only open to UK nationals able to obtain the highest level of security clearance.

Keywords: Hardware, FPGA, VHDL, SoC, PCB, DSP, RF, Embedded, C, C++, Defence, Surrey, Graduate, PhD, Electronics Engineer.
