We are looking for Electronics Engineers to work with us on a new generation of ultra-precise motion sensing technology. These are key roles that will offer the right candidates challenges in their core discipline as well as offering opportunities to grow and develop their career.

Who are we?

We are a highly successful and growing business based in Plymouth, at the heart of the south west of England. Part of the global UTC Aerospace enterprise, we are a stand-alone business employing just 280 with a world lead in control, navigation and guidance systems. Right now, we are developing a range of market-disrupting, ultra-precise devices that will redefine what is possible in platform control. 


What will you be working on?

You will be part of the team developing this new generation of technology. You will be working on system design, devising, qualifying and implementing improvements and engineering for obsolescence. You are likely to travel to UK and foreign sites to meet with customers, support product trials and review customer programmes.


How will this help your career?

With a strong internal ‘fast track’ programme that recognises achievers, you will be encouraged to develop your career within this business. You will also have career opportunities across the global UTC Aerospace Systems enterprise. This is one of the world’s largest suppliers of aerospace and defence systems with 42,000 employees across 150 sites worldwide.

Where will you work and live?

You will be based at our main offices on the northern fringes of Plymouth, just a few minutes’ drive from the edge of the Dartmoor national park.  You can choose to live in the city, with its shopping and night life, its vibrant Barbican area and famous Hoe and the recent redevelopment of the 19th century naval victuallers – the Royal William Yard, with its artists’ workshops, cafes and bars.  Or you could choose to make your home in the surrounding countryside and villages, along the beautiful coast or in the Dartmoor national park. Wherever you live, you will have easy access to the glorious beaches and beautiful landscape of both Devon and Cornwall - with activities such as sailing, surfing, cycling, climbing and walking all on your doorstep. 


What are the benefits?

You will work flexible hours, have an extensive benefits scheme which you will shape to suit your own needs, and you will be encouraged to join our scholar scheme which will support you as you continue your studies.  

How do we help with relocation?

You will be supported as you relocate with a generous package worth up to £12,000 - with £6000 available immediately to help you with your initial costs.


What do we need from you:

Minimum 3 years' experience working in an Electronics Engineering role on product design and development or qualification and ideally working in some of the following areas:

  • Low noise digitisation schemes, including analogue signal conditioning, multiplexing and ADC techniques.
  • FPGA design (VHDL), allowing a high level of digital electronic integration
  • DSP design using low cost processors
  • Complex small signal analogue closed loop design and development
  • Integration strategies and design proving
  • Schematic capture, PCB layout and routing, and simulation of the electronics design

A good degree level in Electronics Engineering, Control Engineering, or a closely related discipline.

Please note:  potential candidates will be subject to Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) and background checks and that project access restrictions may apply to some nationalities.
