Contract Electronics Engineer - Consumer Electronics

Job description

This is a long-term contract opportunity, to work with a global brand in consumer electronics, based out of their R&D facility in Cambridge.


Whilst contracting work tends to be the unwanted work of permanent staff, you’ll have a lot more variety instead of the repetitive tasks that we tend to see in the contracting world. Given this is an inside IR35 contract, you’ll be moving across departments, working with the manufacturing group, and helping with the innovation and smart devices team. It’s also a company that regularly keeps contractors busy with months of pipelined work.  


You will be working closely with operations to develop and implement an effective strategy to source and validate the second source electronic components and implement opportunities to value-engineer existing PCB assemblies for high-volume products. You will also support product lifecycle management and manufacturing.


Technical Requirements:

You’ll be an experienced electronics engineer with experience in embedded systems for high volume electronics

You’ll have experience of cost, reliability, product compliance, and manufacturing/assembly/testing techniques

Have experience with the fundamentals of electronics engineering, analogue, SMP, EMC & PCB

Experience working with external manufacturers

Altium and LabVIEW skills
