Reporting to the Engineering Management, the position holds technical
responsibility for the design and development of dynamic output
electro-mechanical devices from conceptual prototyping to TRL 6 (Technology
Readiness Level). The employee is an expert in the field of vibration
measurement and analysis and has a great understanding piezoelectric materials
and their application in measurement sensors. Lean and novel approaches to
development will enable the individual to lead a fast route through complexity
and uncertainty in the early stages of innovation.
Technical leadership and capability is complemented with a creative,
innovative approach to product development challenges particularly through the
pre-NPI levels of innovation projects. The employee will be effective working
alone and autonomously or as part of an integrated product team. They will
direct and participate in the following activities:
Validation and Verification (V+V)
They will also be required to:
Perform innovation and product development activities in accordance with
company processes and procedures.
Provide the technical lead in internal and customer meetings.
Provide technical leadership at technology readiness review gates.
Liaise and network with other departments and external partners,
suppliers and customers as part of an integrated project team.
They may also be required to technically manage design and test
work-packages at subcontractors to ensure that appropriate design and
verification methodology is applied.
Have a degree in an electro-mechanical related subject.
High level understanding and experience of piezoelectric accelerometer
Good understanding of piezo-electric application engineering.
Ability to understand dynamic response output from systems or products
(e.g. PE device) and interpret performance.
Expert in engineering vibration analysis.
