Sintela is a fast-growing company working at the forefront of fibre-optic sensing and we are looking to expand our research and development support base.
As a Graduate Optical Research and Development Engineer you will work closely with the Research team, working on concepts and ideas to develop the next generation of products. You will be involved at every stage of the development cycle, from theoretical investigations of new ideas, numerical simulation of new concepts and signal processing schemes, aiding in the design and construction of laboratory equipment, and performing laboratory experiments. You will also work in collaboration with the product development team to ensure key requirements are captured in the product design.
We are highly driven by market requirements, hence time to product is of importance. We are looking for an individual who is enthusiastic, who will ensure that high standards are maintained, and who can work within a deadline. You will be encouraged to patent your ideas and present optical concepts clearly to your colleagues, customers and occasionally at conferences.
This is a multidisciplinary role and a suitable candidate may initially only have partial experience in these fields but should be willing to learn in the role and expand their responsibilities.
