Opportunities for permanent roles in a range of business sectors

Senior Electronics and Software Product Engineer

Dynamic technology consultancy seeking enthusiastic engineers and scientists

The opportunity
This is a senior role for candidates who have completed numerous electronics or electromechanical product development projects and can demonstrate success in tackling technical challenges through to product
launch. You might have worked in a product company or a technical consultancy.

You will be responsible for the entire product architecture, leading dynamic project teams to develop innovative electromechanical devices from concept to production for multinational device companies. You
would get the opportunity to build relationships with clients, understand their business needs, and secure commercial contracts to deliver highly challenging development programmes.

Unlike roles at many other companies, you do not have to choose between “doing technical work” and “becoming a manager”. You would still spend a fair portion of your time hands-on developing electronics or
software while also building a team and shaping the product development process.

Springboard believes in improving people’s lives and being a good employer. We support the career development of staff through mentoring and personal training budgets. We have an ethical policy to ensure
that your work is satisfying and there is opportunity to travel to clients and manufacturing companies. There is an exciting bonus package to reward achievement of company performance targets.
