Job Description

SoCode are working with a leading high tech company who specialise in the manufacture of modern handheld electronic equipment.  This equipment is primarily used in safety critical environments, and hence requires a highly ruggedised design, and effective manufacturing process.

Due to continued New Product Development, our client are in a position of bringing revolutionary new devices to market with groundbreaking functionality, and with that are seeking a talented professional who is able to work alongside the R&D and manufacturing teams to ensure that both new and exist products are produced in the best way possible.

This is a senior level placement that will see the successful candidate take responsibility for a wide range of production targets.

  • Interfacing with the R&D team to ensure manufacturable designs
  • Ensuring that factory facilities are capable of producing new products, as well as ensuring scalability of production as demand increases
  • Improving factory capability through upgrading equipment and processes, and purchasing new equipment
  • Product Compliance
  • Working with the process engineering team to propose improvements and to design new methods
  • Run checks on current processes to ensure quality of manufacture, and yield
  • Working with procurement to ensure high quality supply chains, and consulting with suppliers to resolve technical problems

Key Interfaces

  • Managing Director
  • Engineering Director
  • NPI Manager
  • Engineering Manager
  • Yield Manager
  • Process Engineers
  • R&D team
  • Procurement Team

The R&D teams are based in the UK in North West London, along with a number of other engineering teams and commercial stafff.  Production however is carried out in the Far East. As such, whilst a lot of this work can be completed from the UK offices, this role will include significant amounts of international travel.

It is expected that around 1/3 of your time will be overseas, although if you wanted to increase that, it would be possible.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a modern company on the forefront of technical innovation, with a forward thinking team who are intent on growing the company further still.
