Location of office: Milton Keynes

The role:
A growing start-up electronics business with very secure financial investment are looking to recruit a Power Electronics specialist to the team.

The business is using cutting edge disruptive technologies to design highly efficient power supplies that use high frequency AC and operate at very high speed. These power supplies can be applied to various applications and will make an offering that is different to anything currently available on the market.

The business is receiving interest from a wide range of customers in different industry sectors where their power supply solutions could be applied. Some of the industries proof of concepts are to be designed for are Agriculture, Emergency Services, Lighting, Mini-Grid and other Commercial applications.
