Working for Teledyne e2v: A high performance career
Published: 18 Aug 2017 By Cameron Collins
Teledyne e2v (previously known as the English Electric Valve Company) is a global technologies manufacturer based in Chelmsford. Teledyne e2v strive to deliver innovative developments for high performance systems and equipment for Civil Aerospace, Defence, Space Travel, Industrial, Medical, and Scientific applications. The company was started in the early 1940’s as a part of the MES (Marconi Electronic Systems) group, manufacturing vacuum tubes for use in defence radar systems; before splitting away and becoming its own separate entity in 1947.
Specialising in RF (Radio Frequency) Power, Imaging, and Semiconductor solutions, Teledyne e2v works to deliver excellence to customers through long term partnerships. With a talented and diverse staff stationed in Europe, America, and Asia; a high level of expertise is gained through a combination of the company’s in-house technical abilities and strong ties with technical authorities and universities. Sales, service, and technical support are provided by four global offices, with over 1600 employees spread across more than 50 countries, a third of whom are in the fields of science and engineering.
Teledyne e2v’s expertise has paved their way to affiliation with numerous high profile bodies and projects: Designing CCD (Charged-Coupled Device), CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) and EM (Electron Multiplying) imaging sensors and sub-systems for over 150 space missions conducted by the world’s largest and most influential space travel and research agencies; including NASA, ESA, JAXA, CSA and the Russian-led World Space Observatory. With over 40 years of experience in imaging design and manufacturing, it’s no small wonder that CCD Imaging Sensors designed by Teledyne e2v were installed in the Hubble Telescope, or that 106 of their imaging sensors were used to form the largest sensor array in the ESA’s GAIA project to map out the Milky Way.
A pioneer of RF Power, Teledyne e2v’s technology is used across the world, from missile control safety and arming devices, to digital television transmitters. Indeed, their expertise spans across both defence and commercial sectors. A solid history of providing standard and custom RF solutions has lead Teledyne e2v to work on projects such as CERN’s world-famous large hadron collider. They’re also no strangers to medical technology, providing x-ray sources in 90% of the world’s radiotherapy cancer treatment machines.
Providing for markets that require the highest levels of product quality, service, and support is a challenging job, requiring an extensive history of provable excellence. With someone receiving cancer treatment every 2 minutes through the use of radiotherapy machines sporting Teledyne e2v RF technology, this is life-saving work being done; as such, consistent quality is required. This is achieved - in part - due to Teledyne e2v’s commitment to its employees training and development, ensuring that each member of staff is given the opportunities required to reach their full potential. This works in conjunction with their talent fast-tracking scheme, a 12 month development programme open to employees showing a great amount of potential. The programme is designed to prepare them for senior level roles within the company. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg; with Teledyne e2v also offering work experience and apprenticeship schemes open to dedicated and talented individuals from GCSE students to post-graduate engineers.
With such a ubiquitous presence in the engineering industry and a history of delivering top of the range products; Teledyne e2v is an ideal company to work for, whether you’re a seasoned technical supervisor with years of experience, or the next up-and-comer in the industry.
