    We are looking for an accomplished engineer to join our team, who can own the electronics solution on medium to large projects and lead a team of electronics engineers from the front.

    You’ll need a strong foundation in the fundamentals of electronics and a track record of successfully delivering challenging PCB designs, and have a genuine passion for engineering.

    This role is in the Electronic Design group within our Industrial, Consumer and Energy division.

    Role description

    Cambridge Consultants works on a wide range of product and system developments for a broad range of clients. You’ll start off by creating a solid reputation for yourself as a reliable, safe pair of hands for day-to-day electronic design across a mix of project teams as you work up towards technical leadership.

    Projects we are currently working on that you could be involved in :

  • High volume product development of Smart Metering solution for UK energy suppliers
  • Electronics development for optical communications system for an agricultural application
  • High performance custom electronics development for security application
  • Internal project investment in high power electronics
  • Every project we do is different we are always innovating rather than iterating, so each new project will be a brand-new challenge.

    You could be working on an industrial robot on one project, then a smart wearable on the next.

    What we can offer

    We will provide you with the opportunity to have responsibilities across all stages of the product development life cycle such as :

  • Supporting or leading the scoping of new projects by understanding client requirements and identifying technical challenges
  • Development of system architectures in collaboration with engineers from other disciplines
  • Simulating and producing detailed analog, digital and mixed signal circuit designs
  • Develop schematics, oversee PCB layouts and generate and manage BOMs for multi-PCB product designs
  • Hands-on testing and debugging in the lab
  • Documenting the design
  • Supporting transfer to manufacture
  • As you gain experience in this role, you can develop in whichever direction you choose, whether that be senior technical leadership, technical project management, group leadership or a more sales-focussed role.

    What you can bring

  • Strong academic background with an electronics related degree
  • Detailed understanding of the fundamentals of electronics (any or all of analogue, low power, low noise, high speed, power, RF etc) and a proven track record in designing and debugging challenging PCBs
  • Great communications skills to both fellow team members and clients
  • Appreciation for the basics of other branches of engineering (e.g. mechanical, software, manufacturing, fluidics, optics etc)
  • It would also be great if you have some hands-on experience of EDA tools, Altium and / or Mentor Xpedition. Software development skills (C, C++, Python etc).

    Experience in volume manufacturing and / or system specification and architecture.
