We are looking for keen and talented engineers with a passion for technology who want variety and the opportunity to design real products for our clients.

Introduction Summary

We are looking for established engineers with a good honours degree in Electronics, Computer Science or Engineering Physics who want to design real products for our clients. You’ll need to be the sort of person who is willing to turn their hand to a lot of different tasks, and enjoys constantly learning new things. In return we can offer the chance to tackle some of the hardest engineering problems around, such as novel applications of robotics, machine vision, and world class embedded products.

Main Purpose

We are looking for engineers with relevant work experience to join our team of innovative engineers. The ideal candidate will have an excellent degree in Electronic Engineering, Physics or Computer Science and be able to show evidence of a rigorous approach to solving real-world problems. We develop cutting-edge products for our clients, using a wide variety of technologies, so an ability to learn and a determination to grow are important. Type Of Work Cambridge Consultants undertakes over 300 technology, design and consulting projects every year. The ICE division focuses on Industrial & Energy, Consumer, Defence & Security and Oil & Gas markets.

Responsibilities

You will work as part of our technical team on client assignments in multi-disciplinary projects for a wide range of markets. You may work on one or more projects at a time, in a variety of different disciplines and roles. You will work on the design of technical systems for a wide range of applications and products. You will have many opportunities to develop your technical skills for complete system design and to specify and implement analogue electronics (power, RF, real-world interfaces), digital electronics (processors, memory, DSP, FPGAs, communications interfaces), PCB design, control engineering, information engineering, embedded software, computer software, RTOS, Linux, security, communications.

Requirements

To meet the requirements of this role you will have:

  • An excellent degree or PhD in electrical, electronic or information engineering, computer science, or engineering physics.
  • Experience in at least one of the following areas, and enthusiasm for learning about the others:
    • software implementation in C, C++ or Python
    • PCB design o digital electronics (processors, memory, DSP, Verilog, VHDL)
    • analogue electronics (general, interfaces, RF, power)
    • Relevant work experience as an electronics/software engineer.

We are looking for excellent engineers. We are interested in your current skills and experience. We are also interested in your ability to learn quickly. We want engineers with experience of developing complete products. It is an advantage if you have written professional specifications (requirements and implementation). Along with your CV, please describe why you are attracted to this position, what you feel you offer Cambridge Consultants, and any achievements that you are particularly proud of. We are especially interested to hear about the software, electronics and engineering projects you have done for work and for a hobby.
