Entrust People currently have an opportunity for an Electronics Engineer with a Product Development / R&D background to join a growing, dynamic, energetic company, developing revolutionary and flexible assay platform technologies that will transform In Vitro Diagnostic testing and provide next generation healthcare.


Reporting to the R&D Engineering Director, and working as part of the engineering team, the successful candidate will be responsible for driving the development of the nstrument design from the lab-based prototype stage to manufacturing design transfer.


Key roles and Responsibilities

·         Be aware of project timelines and contribute to the electronics sections of the project plan with relevant tasks and estimated timescales.

·         Create detailed design specifications based on input from product requirements specifications and prototype testing and characterisation.

·         Create robust characterisation and test methods to set tolerances and limits on key technical blocks of the instrument design.

·         Provide innovative and robust design solutions to identified problem / high risk design areas.

·         Review and critique electronic design solutions developed by other team members.

·         Ensure that the key functional technical blocks of the instrument are developed, tested and iterated in a robust and rapid manner.

·         Ensure that the electronic components of the instrument design are integrated into a robust final solution including management of sub-contractor partners where required (PCB fab, board build, component sourcing).

·         Work with the chosen contact manufacture and internal colleagues as appropriate to transfer the electronic product design to manufacturing, inclusive of specifying board stage and any intermediate assembly testing required.

·         Ability to develop and execute the required verification and validation activities needed to demonstrate the electronics design has met specification.
