Fancy joining a world-renowned, market leading organisation? If so, OSI Electronics have the perfect position for you!

We are a diversified manufacturer of electronic devices and value-added manufacturing services. We provide our customers with the manufacturing capabilities and purchasing power of a global Electronics Manufacturing Services provider.

As we continue to grow, an opportunity has arisen for a PCB Layout Engineer to bring the PCB layout of electronic designs inhouse, removing the dependency on outside resource which is costly and time consuming. This role is not to be confused with that of an electronics design engineer - the PCB layout discipline requires specific knowledge of both the PCB manufacturing and the component assembly processes. The position is best suited to an individual working closely with the manufacturing and assembly team, in so doing allowing the electronics design engineer to focus more closely on the detail of the design solution.

What's on Offer?

Key Responsibilities of the PCB Layout Engineer:

Become the schematic capture and PCB librarian to define, create, and maintain component library shapes, symbols and PCB layouts for new designs across the company.
Significant mechanical engineering experience in previous positions to understand the integration of the PCB design into the broader product platform.
Parasitic circuit-board design (and possible simulation) based upon requirements set out by design engineer.
Liaising with external PCB manufacturers and external subcontract manufacturers.
Liaising with internal OSI-E PCB assembly engineers to optimize layout for manufacturing cost and efficiency.
Examining obsolescence and board optimisation for large scale production.
Working with subcomponent selection from a variety of vendors in partnership with the design engineer
Component consolidation.
Developing a preferred parts list in conjunction with the design engineers - Catalogue of components that the electronics design engineer uses first. Using another device requires approval from the relevant design authority.
Work under the direction of the Electronics Manufacturing Engineer to bring to manufacture designs and concepts from the Electronics Design department, to be integrated in sub-component assemblies, tested and validated before shipping to the Stoke facility.
Proficient in the use of Altium Designer as the main software tool for design work.
Assist with design for manufacture.
Working with subcomponent selection from a variety of vendors in partnership with the design engineer.

A relevant qualification such as bachelor's in electrical engineering, HND, HNC or equivalent in Electronic Engineering, or relevant experience.
A sound understanding of Multilayer PCB design and layout.
Experience of using ECAD design software such as Altium.
Desirable if you have:

Work experience in a manufacture PCB design or an electronic test environment.
Experience of designing and building your own electronic projects.
A sound understanding of electronics principles and fundamentals.
Substantial experience with PCB (PC Board, printed circuit board) high speed digital, analogue, RF and switch mode power supply design layout and impedance control; PCB Fabrication IPC-6011/6012D, PCB Assembly J-STD-001F and IPC-A-610F (Class 2&3)
