MBDA has a fantastic opportunity for a Cable Assembly Design Engineer to work within our growing Interconnects team designing bespoke electrical interconnects/cables suitable for the transmission of power, signal and data within and between subsystems in our products.
To do this you will need to interpret sub-system requirements and, from these, generate electrical schematics and cable design definitions on CAD.

Individuals will need to have demonstrable experience in cable/harness design, using relevant CAD packages such as HarnWare.

- An appreciation of cable assembly production/process engineering
- Experience of working collaboratively with other engineering disciplines such as mechanical and electronic design engineers to deliver robust cable assembly design solutions.
Finally, we are looking for someone who has a track record of on-time delivery along with good verbal and written communication skills.
Due to the nature of our work, experience of military Defence Standards and a working knowledge of D38999 connectors in support of cable harness manufacture is highly desirable.
