The organisation

A group that work in the design manufacturing and supply of digital communication products for mission critical communication, with audio equipment being tested and designed in state-of-the-art audio chambers. They are based a short distance from Cambridge North, in some truly stunning offices. The work they provide is largely within the public services domain, with the tech they work on being relied on in life or death scenarios. The work schedules sometimes require tight deadlines with an expectation of delivery, but they also promote a healthy working environment by offering half days on Fridays, arranging regular social events, and working in spacious and modern offices. If you want to work somewhere where you’ll make a serious impact in the real world, this is the company you’ll want to be a part of.


The role

You’ll be joining the business as the Principal Acoustic Engineer, and will be a recognised authority for the acoustic test environment, driving the test methodology as well as working on technical design, specification and optimisation of acoustic solutions for radio terminal products and accessories. These guys are currently introducing new products into their portfolio, and you’ll be responsible for developing the audio software for the current and future products alongside the strategy group and other Acoustic Engineers.


What you get in return

In return, you’ll be working on technology which will make a visible difference in the real world. You’ll be working with some true leaders of industry in your respective teams, and as such will receive some excellent one-on-one mentoring, with a tailored career plan to climb the ladder. You will be in a modern workspace with an on-site cafeteria which offers discounted lunch and breakfast to all staff, every day. You’ll also receive private medical & dental care, life assurance, free parking, regular social events, flexible working, company pension, half days on a Friday and 25 days annual leave (not including bank holidays).

  • Full product lifecycle experience
