You will be expected to deal with new or existing customers.

On an average day you will be expected to do the following:

  • Provide technical support on existing or new products.

  • Liaise with customers via phone or email - we need to fault find the problem before parts are returned.

  • Guiding the customer through the returns process.

  • Liaising with teams in our Hong Kong and Shenzhen offices to progress more technical queries.

A career in our team is different from other places. We take pride in our modern tools and very streamlined processes. We have a friendly can-do atmosphere, and you’re given the freedom and responsibilities to get the job done without interference. Also, the fruits of your labour will be a mechanism for something that will offer tangible, sometimes life-changing, value and benefits to people throughout the world.

  • Previous experience as a support engineer.

  • Opportunity to develop within a high growth business.

  • You must be able to speak and write English to a native standard.

  • An ability to speak and write technical information in English to a high standard, if you can do this in a second language that would be highly advantageous.

  • A technical qualification in electronic, mechanical or mechatronic engineering is compulsory.

  • You must be able to work full-time office hours in our London office (Kennington Oval) and have the necessary visas / work permits to take on a full-time permanent role in the UK.

  • Have a can do attitude!

The Work Environment

We work hard within a friendly and relaxed atmosphere of purposeful activity. We all get stuck-in and help out, but late nights aren’t expected; problems and issues get fixed quickly. We have a decent espresso machine on hand as we have a number of coffee lovers in the office. We take it in turns to choose our favourite Spotify playlist to be played in the background.

Everyone in the team works from their own fully adjustable sit / standing gas-lift desk, a comfy Aeron chair and a powerful PC with triple monitors. Most of our team have an engineering background, and there’s a constant buzz of innovating, reverse engineering, hacking together proof-of-concept solutions and trying to improve both the products we sell, and the way our company runs. We operate Flexi-time based on a 9 hour day with an hour for lunch - so that’s 8-10 am till 5-7pm.

We Want To Hear From You!

If you think this is for you, please drop us an email to jobs at, and tell us about yourself. We’re a little old school, so we like to receive covering letters and it’s great to know that you have read this advert rather than just 'ticked and clicked’.

Team PMD.
