Job description

An amazing Mechanical Design Engineer job, working for a truly ground breaking Electronics R & D company, who are based in fabulous facilities in beautiful East Sussex.

The position is a rare and genuinely fantastic opportunity for a talented Mechanical Design Engineer to join a high calibre team, in an innovative R & D company who are developing the most advanced digital imaging technology imaginable and using it to completely change the way we interact with the world, to solve complex real world engineering problems.

You would be working in a stunning building, set in its own grounds, in an amazing R & D environment that is kitted out with anything you need to produce exceptional design solutions to complex mechanical engineering problems. It will be up to you to solve new and unique engineering challenges, working with the foremost Optical, Computer Vision and Electrical experts in the field, to develop the next generation of fully immersive graphics products.

The labs are process light, ideas heavy and engineers are encouraged to innovate and where there isn't a process or method, develop one.

You must be happy working in an environment where formal design specs are brief, ideas and concepts acted on, but where your designs will still need to be viable, producable and manufacturable. No mean challenge !

Your day to day work will be -

Mechanical Engineering design of electro - mechanical components and assemblies, from concept through to medium volume mass production.

Development and maintenance of detailed development schedules for production planning of assemblies.

Optimisation of the technical and / or mechanical performance of all new and existing digital imaging solutions.



Essential requirements for the role -


> 3+ years of professional experience designing mechanical parts for complex products in a medium to high production environment. Consumer electronics or wearables experience would be ideal.
> Solid design skills including proven proficiency working in Solidworks, CREO, Catia etc (Solidworks Desired).
> Experience with tolerance analysis and process capability.
> Experience in designing complex electro-mechanical assemblies in industries such as consumer electronics.
> Technical knowledge in dealing with contract manufacturing partners and vendors.
> Exposure to rapid prototyping methods to create proof of concept components & products in the shortest possible time.
> Knowledge of modern manufacturing methods, materials, and their limitations. Particularly injection moulding and CNC manufacturing.


Nice to haves include -


> The ability to thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment with an emphasis on accuracy and timeliness.
> The confidence to push the envelope on what is possible with current manufacturing methods and processes (you'd be amazed at what you can actually make a £1/2 million 3D printer do), always with one eye on mass production.
> Intellectual curiosity and a genuine love of learning from other capable people around you.


This Mechanical Design Engineering job is almost too good to be true, but for a capable Mechanical Design Engineer who wants to really stretch their skills and abilities in a company that people really want to work for, it is probably the best Mechanical Design Engineer role out there at the moment.
