Abaco Systems is an acknowledged leader in rugged embedded computing, especially in the military/aerospace market. Our products are used in hundreds of mission critical applications, where the performance and reliability we deliver can be a matter of life and death.
We’re growing fast: we’ve added substantially to our organisation in roles across the board – and that expansion will continue. We’re also growing by acquisition. Our strategy puts our customers front and centre of everything we do: their success will drive our success.
If you see yourself being part of a growing organisation that’s making a real difference in the world, Abaco Systems is for you.
This role is intended to provide a broad experience of development, working on a selection of Military & Aerospace projects that contribute directly to the success of the business and its customers. The duration of the role is 12 months and it will be based in our Towcester facility in Northamptonshire, UK.
Design Assurance Engineers are primarily responsible for qualification of products to provide a high level of confidence that designs are compliant, reliable and successful in deployment. Required testing typically involves EMC and harsh environmental conditions including; vibration, temperature, altitude, humidity etc. You will work with Product Managers, Hardware Engineers and Production Technicians in order to provide an exceptional product for our military and aerospace customers. You will be using our in-house facilities to perform vibration and temperature testing as well as authoring the procedures that specify how the tests are performed. The in-house equipment doesn’t cover every discipline so you will occasionally travel as part of a team to attend external test facilities around the country. The design assurance department is evolving through continuous improvement activities such as LEAN, Six Sigma and 5s so you will be vital in assisting with this effort by hopefully providing fresh ideas.
