Senior Electronics Design Engineer – Avionics/Defence
We have a fascinating opportunity for a Senior Electronics Design Engineer with avionics experience to join a leading Cambridge based R&D company. The Senior Electronics Engineer will need skills in High Speed Digital (FPGAs, VHDL/Verilog etc) and ideally either embedded software, analogue or RF electronics design. This is a company who are conjuring up some seriously disruptive technology and changing the landscape in many industry sectors such as Life Sciences, Medical Devices, Biotechnology – as well as Defence and Aerospace.
The Electronics Engineer will be a key member of a high calibre team of Electronics and Firmware Engineers. Working in a purpose built and state-of-the-art facility, you will apply your hardware electronics design skills to a range of fascinating projects covering areas such as commercial avionics, air traffic control systems, electronic warfare, radar and sonar – and occasionally more diverse projects such as advanced data protection.
The Senior Electronics Engineer will be involved in all stages of technology and product development including design specification, analysis, computational modelling, prototype design, laboratory testing, process development and manufacturing.
