Salary: £50,000 – £60,000
Location: Stockport, Greater Manchester
Location of Work: Hybrid working model 2/3 days in the office
Industry sector: Complex Scientific Instrumentation
A Stockport based business who are leaders in the design and development of complex instrumentation used in isotopic analysis whilst searching for specific masses are looking to recruit a multi-disciplined engineer to the team. With a team in Europe, but only a small team in the UK this is an opportunity for an electronics engineer with embedded software skills, to join a company who are producing a low volume high value instrument.
The UK business was acquired by the European parent as both businesses compliment each other and have the ability to pool technical resource. The current incumbent in the role is retiring, but will be providing a 12 month handover, so this is a fantastic opportunity to understand the technical skills and techniques from an electronics software engineer, who has worked for the business for over 20 years.
As the handover period will be extensive the business is happy to consider applicants who are not from the scientific instrumentation space. The business is open minded to the type of background the electronics software engineer will come from, they will consider a consumer device background, if the applicant has the right brain and aptitude.
The boards currently have an Infineon chipset but are looking to move to the STM32 and the expectation would be that the ideal candidate would have a 50/50 split between electronics and embedded software. However in reality they will consider an engineer who is more biased to electronics or is more biased to embedded software.
This is an opportunity to be the number one figure in a high tech organisation working on complex instrumentation and a chance to really develop your electronics and embedded software skills.
The successful electronics software engineer will have the below ability:
- Relevant engineering degree or equivalent, with an in-depth understanding of electronics
- Proven track record of analogue and digital circuit design for manufacturing environments
- Experience of embedded microcontroller programming and related tools.
- Competent in C/C++ microcontroller programming
