Graduate Electronics/Software Engineer

Computer Science/Electronics/Software/Physics.

Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

We’re looking for Electronics, Computer Science and Engineering Physics graduates keen to start making real products for our clients. You’ll need to be the sort of person who is willing to turn their hand to a lot of different tasks, and enjoys constantly learning new things. In return we can offer the chance to tackle some of the hardest engineering problems around, such as novel applications of robotics, machine vision, and world class embedded products.

Joining Cambridge Consultants

"There's such a breadth of knowledge from so many different people; you can gain knowledge in different skillsets you didn't even know existed."

Overview 

The Electronics and Software group brings together a team of world-class multi-disciplinary experts in everything to do with embedded systems and devices – whether that’s electronics, embedded software, physics, control, communications, security or algorithm design.

We are looking for graduates to join our team of innovative engineers. The ideal candidate will have an excellent degree in Electronic Engineering, Physics or Computer Science and be able to show evidence of a rigorous approach to solving real-world problems. We develop cutting-edge products for our clients, using a wide variety of technologies, so an ability to learn and a determination to grow are more important than the knowledge you already have.

Type Of Work 

Cambridge Consultants undertakes over 300 technology, design and consulting projects every year. The ICE division focuses on Industrial, Energy, Agri-Tech, Defence & Security and Consumer markets.

Within ICE, the Electronics and Software group brings together a team of world-class multi-disciplinary experts in everything to do with embedded systems and devices – whether that’s electronics, embedded software, physics, control, communications, security or algorithm design. We are experts at low-power electronics for battery-powered products. We perform tasks that are diverse, fast-paced and challenging, which may involve systems engineering, embedded software, computer software, PCB design or digital electronics (FPGAs, ASICs).

Responsibilities

With lots of support and guidance from your peers, you will work as part of our technical team on client assignments in multi-disciplinary projects for a wide range of markets. You may work on one or more projects at a time, in a variety of different disciplines and roles.

You will work on the design of technical systems for a wide range of applications and products. You will have many opportunities to develop your technical design skills for implementing analogue and digital hardware, information engineering, embedded software, control, communications and whole product design.

Requirements

To meet the requirements of this role you will have:

  • An excellent degree or PhD in general, electrical, electronic or information engineering, computer science or physics.
  • Experience through university, work or home projects in at least one of the following areas, and enthusiasm for learning about the others:
    • software implementation in C, C++ or Python
    • PCB design
    • digital electronics (processors, memory, DSP, Verilog, VHDL)
    • analogue electronics (general, interfaces, RF, power)

We welcome applications from recent graduates with industrial experience, final year students and graduates with relevant academic course or research experience.  We are looking for excellence, and are as interested in your skills and ability to learn quickly as we are in your experience.

Along with your CV, please describe why you are attracted to this position, what you feel you offer Cambridge Consultants, and any achievements that you are particularly proud of. We are especially interested to hear about any software, electronics or engineering projects you have done, for a hobby, for work or for university.

Our people are here to do the best work of their lives and our job is to provide the platform for them to do it. That means letting people pursue the projects that interest them and develop their career in whatever direction they choose.

We’re committed to promoting a diverse workplace. We believe that diversity can only flourish when everyone feels included and has a sense of belonging.
