Renishaw’s Encoder Products Division (EPD) designs and supplies cutting-edge position feedback technology to the world’s precision measurement, automation, and manufacturing industries. It is highly likely that something you own contains a part or device that was manufactured with the help of one of Renishaw’s encoder products.
EPD is made up of engineers, scientists and technicians all working together to produce market leading products for sale around the world. We start with cutting edge optical, algorithm and circuit design, developing our own ASICs and sensors where required; we then use innovative mechanical engineering to turn our core technology into a range of desirable products for our broad customer base. One of the key challenges for EPD is matching the precision requirements of our build processes to the need to build repeatable quality products by the hundreds of thousands. To do this we work closely with the Manufacturing Services Division (MSD) to develop manufacturing and assembly processes and software that perform reliably and repeatedly to accuracies of a few microns. We are constantly looking to embrace innovations in the industry that give us increased quality, repeatability and traceability while reducing product cost.
We aim to do all of this while maintaining our excellent reputation for quality, delivery and customer service.
A position is available for a Senior Electronic Design Engineer to join a multi-disciplined Current Products team in the Encoder Products Division. The primary focus will be on the design, development and test of Encoder products and process development equipment. There is a strong requirement for effective interaction and mentorship of other Engineers, graduates and apprentices within the group.
The use of EDA tools and an in-depth knowledge of embedded Electronics is an essential requirement, as is an understanding of the current national & international legislation and directives for compliance. Therefore, a background of successfully designed products and knowledge of current electronic devices and techniques is essential.
As the successful applicant you will be analytical, with the capacity to develop solutions from first principles. You will possess excellent attention to detail and be self-motivated to meet deadlines without sacrificing the quality of your work. A creative but methodical approach to development is essential, along with a flair for problem solving, a determination to understand new concepts, meticulous experimental technique and the ability to develop solutions for complex problems from first principles.
This challenging, cross-disciplinary role will require you to gain a good understanding of many complimentary areas: the science of metrology, optics, software and electronics. You will be a self-starter in uncertain situations and maintain good record-keeping. As a reliable, motivated and organised team player, with the ability to work both alone and as team, you will take a logical and innovative approach to solving problems.
