Principal Engineer - Mechatronics - Cambridgeshire

A fast-growing, dynamic medical devices firm based in rural Cambridgeshire are looking to expand their R&D division by bringing on board a senior mechatronics specialist to work on surgical robotics and other medical device technologies and applications.

This exciting new role will give the mechatronics specialist an excellent opportunity to work on cutting edge products at the forefront of the medical devices sector alongside some of the brightest minds. The product is still in its infancy and as this is a relatively small team you will need to take a hands on approach to the project and to the design and development of complex electo-mechanical systems whilst also mentoring the next generation of engineers. Due to the nature of the company you will always have something new on the horizon and will even be given time to work on your own projects and ideas.

To be considered for this exciting role you will need to have a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics or other related subjects and ideally possess a thorough understanding dynamics and control. Extensive knowledge of electro-mechanical systems and additional knowledge with regard to manufacturing and assembly processes and ISO13485 would be highly advantageous. Other sectors of interest would be either industrial, consumer, oil and gas or laboratory instrumentation.

In exchange for your skills and expertise, the company offer a highly competitive package as well as providing excellent career progression and training as well as providing a platform for you to work on start of the art technologies and testing equipment.

For more information, please call Matthew Lowdon of Newton Colmore Consulting on 0044 121 268 2240 or make an application and one of our team will be in touch.
