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 center 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 wide-range of experiences and to encourage both industrial and personal development. It involves 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 is based at our Towcester facility in Northamptonshire, UK.
Design Assurance Engineers are primarily responsible for testing products in order to provide the company and customers with a high level of confidence that designs are compliant, reliable and successful in deployment.
You will be involved in ensuring products undergo required testing. This typically involves products undergoing EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) and harsh environmental condition tests such as; vibration, temperature, altitude, humidity etc. Most of these tests are performed at our in-house facilities. However, the in-house equipment doesn’t allow for all testing disciplines to be conducted. As a result you will occasionally travel as part of a team to external test facilities around the country. Your role will not only include performing these tests but may also involve authoring the procedures that dictate how these tests are performed.
For this role you will be required to work with a number of colleagues in a range of departments and roles including Product Managers, Hardware Engineers and Production Technicians in order to provide an exceptional product for our military and aerospace customers.. The role will also involve a range of communication to professionals both within and outside of Abaco allowing for networking and improving of communication skills.
The design assurance department is constantly 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.
