Senior Engineer  – S3 Science

We are looking for an innovative, fast learning and experienced engineer who loves building and has a shared passion for bringing complex electromechanical systems to market and the biomanufacturing industry. Working across our engineering and biology teams at our brand new, independently owned R&D center you will help develop our bioproduction technologies within a commercially focused startup R&D environment.You will play a senior and leading role in a growing engineering team whilst also designing, building, testing and developing novel bioproduction systems. This work is not a pure management role and will require a desire to roll up your sleeves and design, test and build systems daily. You will be directly involved in the entire product development cycle, from understanding user requirements through to delivering prototypes and ultimately manufacturable designs. The fast pace of a startup will mean that your day to day roles will be constantly changing and you will be expected to stretch your skillset to meet this need.Key Responsibilities:- Operational oversight of product development and engineering R&Dprojects (mechanical, electrical and software) including technical progress and regulatory compliance- Working on developing our overall mechanical and technical approaches and suggesting new directions for our R&D projects and collaborating with our biology team to facilitate interdisciplinary innovation- Prototyping designs in our workshop to rapidly test concepts, and coordinating suppliers, manufacturing partners and consultantsRequirements:Prior experience working in R&D between the scientific and engineering worlds, and the ability to create specifications from processes with a level of uncertainty and variation in inputs (aka cell biology).- Demonstrable experience of developing electromechanical devices from customer specifications through to a manufactured product.- CAD experience (SolidWorks preferable) and ability to perform hand calculations to determine solutions to engineering problems.- Knowledge and experience working on complex fluid handling and/or thermal and mass transfer systems.- Prior experience working with electrochemical sensors and electronics/embedded electronic systems.- Knowledge of and desire to engage in rapid prototyping, including hands-on work (3D printing, thermoforming, CNC/machining).- Previous DFM experience, including familiarity with thermoplastic (e.g. injection molding, extrusion) and metallurgical manufacturing techniques and knowledge of UK based manufacturing partners- Ability to communicate clearly and effectively internally between biologists and engineers and with external suppliers and consultants- Experience managing multiple projects simultaneously (using Jira, Confluence, Notion or similar), and to keep accurate design records for regulatory compliance (e.g. ISO and CE marking)While we consider applicants from any/all relevant backgrounds, it is likely that you will have an BEng/MEng/PhD in one of MechEng, Aerospace, ASCE, EEE or BioEng and/or have 5-10+ years of relevant industry experience
