This company of engineers and scientists develop patentable inventions for well-known product companies worldwide, and this role will allow you to do the same.

To join them, you’ll have a love of technology, and understand how complex everyday devices work. You’ll have intellectual curiosity and already enjoy working on tech projects in your spare time, as shown in your CV.

You will also have:

  • A master’s degree, PhD or commercial work focused on a technology with commercial relevance for high-tech communications. A wide range of tech will be considered here – examples could include high-speed data transmission, satellite technology, radio frequency (RF), optics or optical networks, mobile electronics, 4G / 5G, etc.
  • Communication skills, resourcefulness, you are collaborative, and consider yourself to be an inventive or creative person. These skills will be exercised during interview.
  • Full existing UK work permission without time limit or restriction.

This is a chance for a unique and intellectually rewarding full time role, working with smart colleagues, inventing together. Perks include up to 60% home working each week, a rewarding bonus scheme, and the chance for expenses-paid travel.
