My client in Maidenhead is currently in need of an Embedded Software Engineer due to expansion.


The ideal candidate will have past experience designing systems and implementing hardware and software designs that enable machines to operate in unconstrained environments with little to know operator support.

They require an experienced electronics engineer with a strong background in embedded software development, analogue, digital electronics and robotics to lead projects. You must have a hands-on attitude with a track record of turning around fast paced prototypes as well as complete designs ready for manufacture.

You will be working as part of a multidisciplinary team of electronics, mechanical, aerospace engineers as well as technicians and flight teams to develop aircraft/payload components and deliver improvements on our production line.

If you are ready to solve challenges in a fast-paced environment in an exciting industry, you should apply for this role.

Full time role for an immediate start.

Candidates must be eligible to work in the UK without visa sponsorship.

Please note: This is not a suitable role for a graduate engineer with no work experience. This is also a very hands-on role, using bench equipment and working with our vehicles, customer hardware, and with other team members - as such, this role is a full-time office based role.
