Cambridge - Electronic Design Engineer - Highly competitive salary - Advanced Electronics

Our client is a global leader in the use of an innovative ultrasonic sensing technology. Initially developed at Cambridge University, their technology facilitates precision measurement of gases and liquids in a variety of challenging environments such as subsea and space. Their unrivalled success has meant that they are now expanding further into new markets where their technology can be best utilised.

You will join an award winning systems team collaborating on this innovative electronics technology. Your role will be to assemble and test electronic modules and support systems designed to interface with gravity sensors. You should have experience with EMC testing, mixed signal circuit design and simulation (e.g. LTspice), schematic capture and multilayer PCB layout (Altium).

In this highly technical role you will also be involved in the improvement of existing software, electronic and mechanical systems. Experience with ASIC design and embedded software development (C/C++) will be a considerable advantage as will 3D CAD skills for mechanical assemblies (Solidworks, Creo PTC or Autodesk Fusion 360.)
