Who we are:

We’re a fast growing company bringing a revolutionary new spectrometer to market and are looking for a practically minded engineer to contribute to the design and manufacturing support effort. You’ll have a good first degree in Engineering, Physics or a related field, have demonstrable practical experience and be keen to take on plenty of variety! This role is open to recent graduates, as well as seasoned engineers.

You'll be joining the team which performs product development and manufacturing support, working closely with everyone throughout the company. We're constantly improving the performance of our IRmadillo spectrometer and improving our manufacturing methods. You'll experience cutting edge agile management methods and learn about lean and 6-sigma manufacturing techniques.

The teamwork includes (but is not limited to):

+ Supporting the Production department by developing methods and processes
+ Liaising with suppliers
+ Supporting the Sales team
+ Involvement in planning deliveries to customers
+ Investigating and resolving customer support tickets
+ Testing software, firmware and electronics
+ Designing and improving the product: mechanical design, optics
+ Troubleshooting everything you can think of

The ideal candidate will have the following profile, however since this is the real world, we expect you’ll only have some of these attributes:

+ Likes to take things apart to find out how they work
+ Happy to get stuck in to troubleshooting
+ Comfortable writing software code to make something happen e.g. Python for data analysis
+ Maybe you've done some electronics or software development
+ Enjoy genuine teamwork, helping others to get the team's work done together
+ Familiar with Solidworks CAD, or eager to learn
+ Enjoy international travel

If you can solve a problem, if you really want to help, and if you can write a nice covering letter, maybe you can be part of the A-team.

We’re Talent Acquisition Specialists that founded change in 2005. Since then we’ve helped over 2500 clients grow, prosper and lead.

# Our Story

Frustrated by poor experiences with traditional agencies, our founders (just two regular candidates), decided that the outdated industry needed modernising and a new balance of power. In 2005, a new kind of agency model was born, putting the client and candidate at the heart of the experience whilst removing the pushy sales, schmooze and high fees.

# What makes us different?

Aside from a sensible fee model, custom technology and a direct unhindered path to candidates we…

…don’t sell candidates and we don’t sell jobs: we facilitate relationships and champion the process of ‘organic hiring’ to help create stronger and longer-lasting engagements.

# Who we work with

With an industry reputation for delivering results we are the go-to talent finders for over 2500 clients. We work with everyone from tech start-ups to global brands who all demand the best service and talent.

# Reputation
