It will also include managing layout and fabrication, capturing schematics with OrCAD, and writing test firmware and software.

As our client is a consultancy, excellent communications skills are expected, and as a senior member of the team, mentoring less experienced engineers will also be a part of the role.

To succeed in this role, you will need:

  • a good (1st/2.1) degree or a PhD in a numerate discipline; with a strong academic background including As in A level Maths and Physics
  • well-established skills in and broad experience of complex PCB design
  • proven and honed skills in FPGA development in VHDL
  • software development experience in embedded C/C++
  • strong verbal and written presentation skills

This role is only open to British citizens who are confident they will be able to obtain at least SC level security clearance, due to the defence and security related projects they will encounter. Applicants with visas or who would require sponsorship will not be considered for this position.
