*To analyse results from testing and investigate and resolve any anomalies with other engineering disciplines.
*To prepare deliverable reports for HWIL's customer.
About you:
As a Systems Engineer (HWIL), your skills and qualifications will ideally include:

*Good problem solving and analytical skills
