This exciting SME has an opening for an electronics engineer. This company has been developing a unique molecular detection technology for the last 10 years and is now ready to make the jump to user-ready devices.

The successful candidate will work with a small team of scientists and engineers and must be prepared to adapt to any and all engineering and related challenges that can emerge within a small team. Therefore an enthusiasm for a broad range of tasks with a good eye for detail is required while keeping the broader picture in mind.

The candidate should have a proven ability to design and develop new engineering solutions to problems. A solid understanding of the relevant science and engineering behind the design concept is essential with an aptitude for spotting errors and suggesting improvements. In addition the candidate should be well organised and have the ability to manage multiple projects in parallel while taking responsibility for their own target deliverables. This work may also entail interfacing with external companies and hence excellent people skills are essential, with the ability to understand, collaborate on, and communicate requirements and designs to others.

A broad background in electronics/instrumentation development and/or prior experience with working within small company environments would be a considerable advantage. The candidate must be confident in working within a focussed and fast paced environment and be both forthright in their views as well as flexible in adapting solutions to meet changing requirements.

Experience required: At least 5 years of relevant electronics design and hands-on development experience, preferably including the full life cycle of bringing products to market.

Relevant skills:
