Our Engineering department currently has an immediate opening for a Hardware Design Engineer, with well-developed analogue and digital electronics methodology and experience. This is an excellent opportunity to work in a friendly environment with a team that is dedicated and passionate about craftsmanship and innovation.

HUBER+SUHNER Polatis designs and manufactures all-optical fibre-optic switches which make and maintain their optical connections by means of our patented DirectLight™ beam steering technology. This role will be responsible for carrying out the duties of the Engineering department including design, research, prototyping, engineering documentation, estimating and process improvement, in addition to collaboration with design/purchasing and workshop/assembly teams on design projects. It will include the design, development, implementation, testing and support of the HUBER+SUHNER Polatis range of photonic switch products.

As a graduate in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering you will have a least 5 years industry experience to date, with a proven track record of delivering complex products against demanding timescales.

You will possess a fundamental understanding of analogue electronics, with particular emphasis in high sensitivity analogue circuit design, utilising low noise op-amps.

Low power design experience is also a ‘must-have’, in addition to experience of complex PCB designs using both analogue and digital electronics.

With an innate and impeccable attention to detail you will be  able to plan, schedule, co-ordinate and trouble shoot effectively whether you are required to work autonomously or contribute and influence in a team setting.

We offer a friendly and informal work environment in a prime location on the Cambridge Science Park, a competitive salary and annual bonus scheme, plus a range of benefits including private health care, a generous non-contributory pension scheme, health shield cash back plan, and cycle to work scheme.
