Office-based in Colchester, Essex, you will work closely with our electronics, board layout and other mechanical and thermal engineers at all the different stages of board development, for both rugged and more benign environments.

*You must be independent and a self-starter, able to plan and carry out your work with little supervision and with the ability to deliver effective results in short timescales.
*Familiarity with SolidWorks is essential.

Desirable, but not Essential, Skills / Experience:
*An appreciation of change control procedures, e.g. ECO/ECN systems.
*A good understanding of tolerances and their effects in real-world production.
*Some awareness of thermal management techniques, especially in electronic product design.
*Previous involvement in environmental testing, e.g. shock, vibration or thermal tests.

*Very competitive salary.
