An excellent opportunity for a dynamic and enthusiastic engineer to join a growing Engineering team at a young biotech spin-out company of the University of Oxford.

They are currently launching a system for isolating and culturing single-cells based on the company's innovative fluid manipulation technology. As a Mechanical Design Engineer, this role would have a particular focus on:
- Product design, DFM and DFA
- Compliance testing and declaration documentation (CE, FCC, RoHS, WEEE, etc.)
- Manufacturing management

However, being part of a new start-up company means that the full product development, launch and support will be handled as a team and all engineers will be expected to have a good understanding of the complete system. The flexibility to work on all aspects of the engineering process in essential.

New members of the team should have a strong interest in design, manufacture and product development and be able to pick up new skills quickly. Further examples of useful skills include:
- Product design for low volume manufacture, both mechanical and electrical
- CAD experience
- Basic understanding of common manufacturing methods
- Machine assembly and testing
- Supplier and manufacturer management
- Working with users to further user centered design

The position may include traveling to represent the company within/outside the UK from time to time.

Previous experience in these areas and others is desirable, but not essential. They welcome applications from both graduates and experienced engineers (or related disciplines/experience)

Their main offices are serviced by a complimentary bus from Oxford City Centre - runs ~ 30 minutes.

The role is available immediately and successful applicants can expect to be paid competitively. Applicants are asked to submit a full CV at their earliest convenience.
