We are looking for a practically minded engineer with a keen eye for detail and a great deal of experience in translating ideas into market ready products for a Cambridge based company.

Responsibilities

You will be responsible for elements of the design across a range of projects - focusing on design for and transfer to manufacture, planning and implementing low volume assembly of complex electromechanical products and supporting manufacturing partners with the roll out of the design to higher volume manufacture.

This will involve:

* Collaboration across engineering disciplines, client interaction, and the management of suppliers and manufacturing partners.
* Interpretation of CAD data, along with significant practical skills allowing you to develop unique solutions and processes
* Ability to manage and control the release of engineering data, and, most importantly, a genuine passion for the delivery of quality engineering
* Managing tasks within multiple projects requiring delivery to tight timescales and budgets, managing both internal and external resources
* Mentoring more junior staff

Requirements

The role requires a high degree of technical ability, experience in design for and transfer to manufacturing, close attention to detail and a drive and determination to improve quality of a given design.

* A good engineering degree or other relevant qualification, and direct experience in product development in a consumer or industrial manufacturing company
* The ability and aptitude to work with abstract system design concepts, as well as delivering solutions against a defined specification, in both cases following good principles of engineering design
* Ability to work with and assume technical leadership of teams of engineers and technicians of different disciplines to implement detailed solutions for mechanical and electromechanical systems, down to component level
* Strong written and verbal communication skills

Experience of managing manufacturing suppliers and partners and working in a regulated industry would be advantageous, as would project or task management experience, using Microsoft office tools.
