Senior Product Test / Validation Engineer
Loughborough, UK £28-38k
This position is open to test engineers interested or experienced in functional product test and validation as well as senior engineers that are looking for an interesting and challenging role within a growth market sector.
* Involves functional level / systems level test and validation of products and prototypes
* Requires the ability to devise test plans and procedures
* Experience of a wide variety of tests (e.g. environmental testing, safety, HALT / life testing, reliability test, certification, shock, NDT etc)
* Able to interpret and analyse test data
Thinking creatively about how the customer will use products and being able to develop robust tests to simulate and validate product suitability is the key to this opening.
A systems level approach to product testing will be required to support products through the design and development phase before going to manufacture. You will need to devise and develop test procedures and deliver product validation activities. Furthermore, you will be involved with the analysis of test data and will feedback and advise the design team on shortfalls.
You will work as part of a small team and will have a large amount of test facilities as your disposal in order to test and validate products involving enviromental testing, functional, safety test, accelerated life / HALT, reliability, mechanical test and certification testing.
The role would suit an experienced test engineer, systems test or development engineer with a background in mechanical engineering most likely. A creative mind, problem solving mentality and practical nature is a prerequisite to success in this senior validation engineer opening.
Skills / Knowledge Required:
* Ideally a degree or equivalent in a relevant subject area (e.g. mechanical engineering, mechatronics, materials science or physics)
* Proven test engineering experience (hands-on) ideally with electromechanical products.
* Exposure to functional testing, product level validation or safety testing within a product development environment is strongly preferred
* Knowledge of a wide variety of test and experimental methods
* Excellent written and verbal communication skills coupled with good organisational and problem solving skills
* The ability to design and deliver creative and robust test procedures and processes would be ideal (functional test, environmental test, shock / vibration test, accelerated test / HALT, safety test, product validation etc)
* Use of statistical tools for the analysis and interpretation of test data
More:
* Experience of working within a product development and manufacturing company
* Mechanical product development experience would be preferred
* Leadership skills (able to lead and mentor junior test engineers)
* Support root cause analysis activities, DFMEA, quality investigations, etc
A practical approach to test, validation and problem solving is required and this will be a hands-on role. Candidates with knowledge of electromechanical products would probably do well.
This systems test / validation engineer role is commutable from Birmingham, Coventry, Northampton, Hinckley, Loughborough, Nuneaton, Leamington Spa and Leicester
