When thinking of a new company to work for, it's likely you look for someone who is working on new technology, something you won't be 100 percent familiar with. Something that would be referred to as "exciting", "innovative" or "cutting edge".

However, in this instance, all those adjectives are quite genuine. This is a company who have developed the world's first self-organising mesh technology to deliver Gigabit Fixed Wireless Access services. It's presently being deployed around the world to provide 5G virtual fibre connectivity for mobile operators and broadband service providers.

You'll also work with the team to testing their systems, building and modifying early prototypes, using your knowledge of electronic components, circuit design and fault finding.
In return you'll be play a key role in a maturing Cambridge start up, improving the successful existing product line, working to improve your knowledge of electronics, circuit design and software to continue defining the product roadmap. You'll also be a part of a genuine flexible working environment, and work with a new emerging technology, at a critical point of the company's growth. You'll also receive a salary of up to £35,000, a generous company bonus, with other benefits to boot.
