Job description

Senior Design Engineer
Central Cambridge - Hybrid
Competitive Salary + Options


Are you a Design Engineer passionate about sustainability?


Did you know that July 2021 was the hottest month ever recorded? First place is the worst place in this race, as July 2021 secured its ranking as the hottest month ever recorded since records began 142 years ago. Around the world, the combined land and ocean-surface temperature was 0.93°C, above the 20th-century average of 15.8°C.

Tree planting doesn't seem to be enough. A noble and regenerative activity for sure – but relying on it to absorb enough carbon emissions to achieve ‘net zero’ by 2050 would require 1.6 billion hectares of new forests. That’s five times the size of India, or more than all the farmland in the world.

UK rain is on the rise, and subsequently, so are heatwaves! The Met Office issued its first ever amber heat warning for the UK in July 2021, and Northern Ireland broke its all-time temperature record on July 21, as the mercury soared to 31.3°C at Castlederg.


You have the opportunity to join an exciting innovative start-up business who are driven by a commitment to environmental sustainability, with a goal of combating the Climate Emergency. They are at the forefront of developing cutting edge systems designed for decarbonisation.

As Senior Design Engineer, you will have the opportunity to drive product design and development, collaborating with the product Team to integrate all systems seamlessly with existing design. You will also be conducting research into existing products and materials, regulatory requirements and industry standards.

You will also have the chance to take ownership of creating and developing design concepts, and carrying out prototyping and testing of componants and assemblies, working hand in hand with manufacturing partners in order to streamline the production process, with a focus n efficiency, cost-effectiveness and most importantly - sustainability!


If you have a passion for sustainability, experience with SolidWorks and design for manufacture and assembly, we should chat!!
