In order to expand our development team, we are creating a new Senior Hardware Engineer position in Colchester, Essex, or Theale, Berkshire and we are searching for an experienced and ambitious digital Hardware Engineer to join us in this exciting new venture.

The Job:

Our engineers have many responsibilities, and in particular they are involved in all the following:

  • Design and development of single board computer products from definition through to introduction to manufacturing
  • Production technical support
  • Project leading and design reviewing
  • Maintaining awareness of new technologies
  • Pre and post-sales backup to our technical support team

As the team expands, we also expect more opportunities to develop for team and project leading, and maybe management, roles.


Candidates should be engineering graduates, able to demonstrate practical post graduate experience of digital hardware design, and be familiar with some or all of the following:

  • 32/64 bit microprocessors, preferably Intel 80×86 architecture
  • High performance bus architectures e.g. PCI Express, RapidIO

  • Advanced memory technologies, e.g. DDR4 DRAM
  • High speed digital logic (500MHz and faster)
  • Complex programmable logic devices or FPGAs

You will be part of a small team with a high level of responsibility for your own designs, so you will need to have the ability to work to demanding timescales, and be able to maintain a high level of enthusiasm and commitment to the projects. The role is challenging but the prospects are excellent for capable engineers, as we aim to quickly develop many more new products spanning several platforms.
