Senior Design and Development Engineer - Electronics and Software

The client is a well established SME, based near Heathrow, with a friendly team and a worldwide reputation in its niche. They design and develop sophisticated microprocessor-controlled equipment for medical laboratories. They are now looking for a Design and Development Engineer to join our team. This role would suit an innovative engineer capable of solving problems and developing new devices from concept through to completion.

This is a mixed and varied role and although your core competency should be in an electrical, electronic or software discipline, you must be comfortable contributing to the design and development of all aspects of electro-mechanical products. Hands-on electronic and software design is required but of equal importance is the ability to produce formal specifications, lead projects, and manage external contractors working to your designs and concepts.

Design experience with digital and analogue circuits, and embedded programming experience in C or C++ is required. A working knowledge of motors, valves and control theory would be beneficial. A methodical approach to design along with careful attention to detail is critical.

On top of the design engineering requirements, you will also be responsible for providing front-line customer support on technical issues, and as such, excellent communication and troubleshooting skills are necessary.
