Research & Technology Electronics Engineer
Responsible for the coordination and completion of R&T projects across a range of technologies but with a particular emphasis on the integration of air quality and other sensors into various aircraft systems and components. Sets deadlines of those that support, assigns responsibilities when needed, and monitors and summarises progress of tasks to project lead for those engineering activities assigned.
Is capable of both electronics design work and hand-on testing / prototyping. Performs a variety of tasks which may include leading and directing the work of others. A wide degree of creativity and latitude is expected. Typically operates with a high degree of autonomy. Prepares reports for the project lead.
Require a bachelors degree in electrical engineering or a related discipline. Must have experience with digital and analogue circuitry and be able to utilise FPGA's (Field Programmable Gate Arrays). Experience with gas sensors or similar devices with SPI/UART outputs is a highly desirable.
Familiar with national and international standards, concepts, practices, and procedures. Relies on extensive experience and judgement to accomplish goals. Able to work in a process driven environment, to develop technologies and products in line with the requirements of DO-160 or equivalent standards in other industries.
The successful candidate must show great communication skills to build internal and external customer relationships with the integrated project team, internal resource leadership, project management office leadership and the program manager, to drive the project forward to completion.
The successful candidate will be capable of leading their own work package through the product development cycle (typically from TRL3 to TRL6) and will generate technical reports on the products/technologies, will create test and analysis procedures that will either be executed by themselves or delegated to experienced test engineers.
Experience of Aircraft Environmental Control Systems and/or Aircraft oxygen components is useful. Experience of project-based R&T or NPI work in Aerospace or other engineering industries is appropriate to be successful in this role.
