We are looking for a new or recent graduate who wants to develop their skills in electronics and FPGA design. Working on real projects from the start, you will join a multi-disciplinary team to design wireless systems and products for our clients.

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."

You will have the support of colleagues, who are experts in their field, to guide you when you need advice. With lots of team support you will quickly gain the skills for all stages of the electronic design: from the initial idea, through detailed-design, to debug and transfer to manufacture.

In this role you will be responsible for:

  • Creating design ideas that meet the client’s needs
  • Board-level electronics design
  • Guiding and reviewing PCB layout
  • FPGA or ASIC design
  • Bringing your designs to life in the la

As your experience develops, you will be encouraged to learn new skills and take on new responsibilities.
