Electronics / Firmware Engineer, hardware, microcontrollers, real-time, comms, instrumentation, electronics design, Cambs

Join a world-leading electronics company, work on a range of high-tech products and learn from your peers.

Our client is a privately owned, very profitable company that still has a friendly, 'family' feel. They believe in developing their staff and giving engineers ownership of products - covering the full lifecycle from 'cradle to grave'.

They are now seeking a bright Electronics / Firmware Engineer.

Your role will focus on hardware and software design, in particular real-time system level design using 8/16 bit microcontrollers. This is mainly digital design with analogue skills too. Embedded C and Visual Basic for the front end, with a knowledge of formal software design and communications protocols.

Ideally, you'll have a good degree and experience with the broad range of electronics design, and/or extensive firmware experience. My client would prefer people with BOTH hardware and firmware, but is pragmatic - you could be an Electronics Engineer happy to learn firmware/embedded development, or an embedded developer happy to learn more about electronics design.

You will be a team player who can actively contribute to design teams, and have good problem solving skills.

In addition to a competitive salary, benefits include company 5% pension contribution, plus free healthcare for you and your partner/family.

A range of levels of experience from recent graduate upwards will be considered.
