My client design and manufacture a range of highly complex instrumentation devices that are used in Space exploration.
All of their work is purely scientific based, no military / defence applications at all.
Due to expansion, they currently require a Senior FPGA Design Engineer to join their Electronic R&D team. Their Electronics team is current made up of 28 engineers.
Obviously, anyone with a background in Space technology would be an ideal candidate for this role. But a strong Scientific background would also be very interesting. Away from that, if a candidate has a particular passion / enthusiasm for 'Space', deep space exploration etc, that would also be very beneficial.
Senior FPGA Design Engineer, duties / responsibilities will include:
-Be the lead FPGA electronics engineer for the elements of the electronics subsystems being designed.
-Become the principle member of staff regarding FPGA and VHDL designs for space flight applications
-Develop expertise in electronic engineering for spacecraft systems and space agency requirements.
-Contribute actively to the development of a project through being a member of multi-national project teams.
-Undertake conceptual analysis
Senior FPGA Design Engineer, key skills/ experience, will include:
-Strong background in FPGA design for complex products
- Strong background in digital circuit / high speed electronic design
-Experience of taking designs from concept to manufacture
-A good understanding of basic physics
This is a rare opportunity to join a world leading space research establishment working on groundbreaking technology. They have amazing facilities at their Surrey HQ.
