Main purpose of the job
You will be involved throughout all stages of work for our clients. On early stage engagements you will provide guidance on the business implications of different options for achieving a high-quality final product, as well as reviewing and critically assessing potential partners.
You will provide input into the product development process by contributing your own ideas based on insight into the manufacturing implications of novel processes.
You will be able to review and improve designs with a view to improving manufacturability and reduce cost, and you will direct and review the approach being taken to finding, qualifying and ramping up volume manufacturing partners.
You will be able to help define the best approach for validation of entire product ecosystems, including FMEA and risk identification / management and statistical modelling of failure rates and product life based on reliability testing.
You will work with development teams to define the direction of the testing activities from the requirements, including hardware component-level test, software test, manufacturing / supplier test, reliability test, compliance test and failure analysis.
Although your primary experience will be in electronics manufacturing, you are likely to have significant experience of overall high volume product manufacture, not just the electronic aspects of those products.
