LOCATION OF WORK: Due to covid-19, you will be working remotely from home initially. Once things return to usual, you will work out of the Manchester office with flexibility offered around this.


An established electronics business based in Fairfield, East Manchester require an Embedded Software Engineer to join its R&D team.

This is the opportunity to join a successful and privately owned electronics business who do all R&D development and manufacturing out of its Manchester office, with the business having sales offices all over the world.

The business specialises in developing handheld measurement devices which are used in a wide range of commercial industry sectors.

The first device will have a 3.5-inch button interface display. The second device will have a 5-inch touchscreen display.
