Job Description

Graduate/Junior Electronics Engineer

Based: High Wycombe / Hybrid
Term: Permanent, Full time
Salary: Dependent on experience + Excellent benefits

The Role:

We are looking for an engineer who shares our passions for electronics and music to join our interfaces team. You’ll bring enthusiasm and a strong academic knowledge of analogue and digital circuit design; we’ll help you apply that knowledge to build class-leading products used by millions of musicians.

This role would suit a candidate with an active interest in designing electronics for audio applications but limited industry experience. We support flexible working, but due to the hands-on nature of the role you’ll need to attend our office in High Wycombe regularly.

Duties will include:

  • You’ll design schematics and PCBs according to product specifications and debug prototype hardware. Working closely with QA, mechanical and manufacturing engineers you’ll ensure your designs meet requirements and are ready for production. You’ll be involved in product development from the start, helping to define specifications and features, and will own your products though their full lifecycle.
  • As a junior engineer you’ll be embedded in a technically strong and committed team, who are passionate about what they do and about passing on their hard-earned experience. You’ll learn how to design high performance, cost-optimised, reliable hardware that can be produced efficiently in high volume. As you gain experience, we’ll give you the opportunity to take on more responsibility and technical ownership to help you grow your career.

Required skills and experience – you should apply for this role if you have:

  • A degree or HND in Electronics Engineering (or related subject).
  • Practical electronic design skills. You’ll need to demonstrate knowledge of analogue and mixed-signal design, microprocessor interfacing and power supply design.
  • A methodical approach to problem-solving and debugging, and practical lab skills (soldering, using test equipment etc.)
  • Ability to collaborate and communicate effectively with a multi-disciplinary team, in person and remote working.
  • Ability to work under pressure, learning and applying new skills quickly.

Desirable skills and experience – it would be an advantage if you have:

  • Industry experience in audio or consumer electronics.
  • Non-professional / hobby electronics design experience.
  • An active interest in making music and music technology.
