|Job Title: Electronics Design Engineer
|Location: Currently West Molesey moving to Blackbushe Yateley in May 2024.
|Probation period: 6 Months
|Purpose of the job:
An electronic engineering role to work on military, instrumentation and acoustic systems. The candidate should have experience and specific expertise in analogue circuit design preferably in an instrumentation development environment.
The work will involve mixed signal design including pre-amplifiers, filters, power supplies, interfacing and analog-digital conversion for precision instrumentation applications. Some experience or knowledge of microcontroller-based circuit design and embedded software would be desirable. Practical skills would be desirable but not essential.
The candidate will be expected to work independently or as a member of a team contributing to all aspects of the product development cycle from requirement analysis through design & development into production. Candidate would be expected to produce design documentation and test specifications.
Candidate will be expected to provide technical support for bidding/proposal writing and technical assistance to the Customer Support and Production departments.
Candidate would be expected to provide occasional off-shore support as required including some overseas travel.
Candidate must be UK only citizen.
Candidate must be suitable for SC security clearance with the UK Ministry of Defence.
Key goals / Aim of the positionBasic Analog components / circuits
Operational Amplifier circuits
Power supply technology
Circuit analysis, modelling and theory
Interfacing and IO (e.g. I2C and SPI bus)
CAD Schematic layout
CAD PCB design
Assembler and/or embedded 'C'
FPGA technologies - VHDL / Verilog
Good written and presentational communication skills will be required.
Development experience would be an advantage though new graduates will be considered.
Duties and responsibilitiesNew product development (design & test)
Existing product development (fault finding / improvement / enhancement)
Support to Production Department test engineers
Engineers (after settling in) would be expected to design, prototype and document a circuit. Then take it through to a manufacturability state. This may be as part of a team.
Specific responsibilitiesElectronic modelling
Printed Circuit layout
