Miniature electro-mechanical product design

This product and technology development company is seeking a commercially knowledgeable mechanical engineer to join their multi-disciplinary team working on leading-edge miniature electro-mechanical systems. You will be working from product conception through to detailed manufacturable designs, validating ideas and providing technical guidance to junior engineers. This is a multidisciplinary company, so you will be engaging closely with engineers from other fields including electronics and control. Together you will push at the boundaries of what’s feasible.


  • Demonstrable commercial skills developing small scale electro-mechanical systems from concept to manufacture
  • Top degree in Mechanical Engineering or similar from a highly rated university

While not required, a background in technical consultancy would be valued as a demonstration of both your technical versatility and communication skills.

Based in Cambridge, this company has a supportive, sociable culture that encourages employees to expand and strengthen their skills, learning from expert colleagues from a variety of technical backgrounds. With volume manufacturing taking place in the far east and clients across the globe, there are good opportunities for international travel.
