  • JOB TYPE: Permanent
  • SALARY/ RATE: Competitive

A Senior Electronics Engineer with the duties of designing products to meet quality standards and fulfilling customer requirements.
Generally working within a project team of Electronic and/or Mechanical engineers you will be involved in all areas of the development cycle:-

• Initial conception and evaluating different solutions.
• Selecting and testing relevant technologies.
• Schematic design.
• Simulations.
• PCB circuit design and Layouts.
• Organizing Prototypes for evaluation (PCB & PCBAs).
• Writing of embedded software.
• Design verification and assurance.

The Senior Electronics Engineer will:
need to design products to suit and suppliers manufacturing processes and capabilities.

Work with other engineering team members during the design stage to ensure products are commercially viable.

need to follow all procedures and good engineering office working practices.

need to design products to meet predetermined specifications such as BOM cost targets as well as product performance targets.

Manage your projects and workload to ensure you keep track of progress against predetermined schedules and project milestones.
Review electronic parts and assemblies to ensure they are fit for purpose and meet design

need to work closely with other departments (or sub-departments) to ensure all aspects of the project are communicated effectively.
Assist in conducting general design reviews within the engineering department.

have to use good engineering communications skills, as conversing with engineers based at different sites is common place (UK, US, China). This would be via e-mail, conference call, video call, etc.
