Job Description

Are you a Project Engineer with an Electronics background looking for a new opportunity? Are you someone that enjoys working in a cutting-edge technology environment? If so, this role may be for you.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work within a small technical team specifying inertial sensor and GNSS (GPS) technologies. Project Engineering and technical project management experience is essential as you will be a key point of contact with project, suppliers and customers.

~ Undertaking research and design activities in conjunction with French, Italian and/or German colleagues
