Opportunities for permanent roles in a range of business sectors

Test Technician

We are looking for a 'hands on' practical individual to join our production team helping to build world-class all-optical switching products.

About the Role

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.  In this role, you will assemble and test precision manufactured parts for our switching products.  Once fully trained, your daily tasks will involve assembly, test and data analysis so that the part can be determined as a pass or fail & rework.  You’ll be working in a busy clean room and test lab environment, liaising directly with the engineering teams as necessary, and supported by a close knit team of technicians and operators. 

In time, you will be able to :

  •  work efficiently with minimal supervision
  •  contribute valuable ideas to improve process times, quality and yield
  •  create work instructions
  •  interpret engineering proposals and liaise with other disciplines and
  •  demonstrate an excellent technical understanding of all the processes. 

About You

Prior experience in a production/test role within the telecoms or aerospace sectors would be nice, but is not essential. What is important is that you can demonstrate an aptitude for the tasks and a positive 'can-do' approach to completing them. Confidence in the use of Microsoft Office applications will be needed, along with an awareness of Health & Safety procedures. You will be able to evidence your strong practical skills and by nature possess a high level of attention to detail which will enable you to deliver to a high standard of workmanship.

About Polatis

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.
