Breakthrough technology is vital for the future development of global healthcare. You could be at the forefront of this race to invent novel life-changing technologies and products. That’s because it is no ordinary product development consultancy. Your work as an Electronics Engineering Consultant will have a real-world impact. You’ll get to create prototypes and inventions by translating complex science and new technologies into simple-to-use, patient-centric solutions.

Their projects are intriguingly unpredictable. This means you’ll get to work on everything from early-stage proof of concepts and prototypes through to product development and release. You’ll get to work on a challenging mix of electronic developments, high-speed digital tasks, and low-noise analogue circuits. Although it’s not critical for this role, if you have FPGA experience, you could apply these skills to medical imaging such as ultrasound and X-ray. There will also be opportunities to design low-power microcontrollers, customised sensors, and complex surgical robotics systems.

It's a role that will grab and retain your interest and attention through a continuous variety of technical and intellectual challenges. These typically span electronics design, schematic capture, debugging, developing architectures, component selection, electronics analysis, and testing.

You’ll also benefit from our culture of freedom. This, along with their collaborative culture, encourages teamwork, collective learning, and innovation. It also creates unique opportunities to develop skills in project leadership and client management to keep your professional development on track.

By operating at the intersection of early-stage invention and engineering implementation, your ideas will become a reality as you contribute to the rapid development and implementation of technology.

Besides conquering technical challenges and building strong project teams, you’ll also get to evolve your insight into the healthcare market and use it to uncover new business prospects and new areas for our medical technology consultancy services. This, in turn, will create opportunities for your career development - and you’ll get to explore your professional growth regularly with the help of a dedicated career coach.

They will provide you with varied and fast-paced work with a focus on technically stimulating projects for clients ranging from stealth-mode start-ups to multinational corporations. In short, this is a fantastically agile role beyond the realm of traditional Electronics engineering.


Whether you’re in the early stages of your career or an established Electronics Engineer, you’ll need a track record of achievement and academic excellence to thrive in this role.

They are keen to hear about your collaborative, analytical, and structured approach to tackling complex technical problems. Your CV should cover electronics design activities with a reasonable level of complexity. Your application will have a distinct appeal if you can include details of analogue/digital design, schematic capture, micro-controller firmware experience, and hands-on testing/debugging.

Why our clients?

You’ll get to tackle problems that could impact the patient experience globally.

Every step of the way, you’ll be supported by multi-disciplinary teams of scientists, engineers, and designers. It's our deep-seated curiosity around technology that brings their teams together.
