Graduate Mechanical Engineer

Graduate Mechanical Engineer

We’re looking for talented and ambitious graduate mechanical engineers to join our team in Cambridge. If you’re keen to design cutting-edge robotics with a world class team, then this is the grad role for you.


You’ll be working closely with experienced engineers and be a full-fledged member of the team from day one, helping to create, analyse and develop state-of-the-art robotic technology. You’ll be exercising creative approaches to problem solving, and putting your strong understanding of mechanical engineering fundamentals to work with rigorous attention to detail.

About you

Naturally we expect you to have a good (first or upper second) degree in engineering or related discipline, alongside good A levels. We’re looking for you to have a demonstrable grasp of mechanical engineering fundamentals including analytical, theoretical, experimental and creative capabilities. Of course you’ll also be enthusiastic, curious, energetic and proactive, and a great team player.

You’ll also be working with Solidworks, FMEA and DFMA tools and Microsoft Office – so we’ll be looking for you to be familiar with those.

The package

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package (including pension, cycle-to-work scheme, life assurance, and medical insurance – as well as our now famous monthly company BBQs). On top of that, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork, and where fun is just as valued as our commitment to make surgery better for millions of people.

Why join us?

CMR Surgical is developing a next-generation robotic system for universal minimal access surgery. The Versius system comprises a surgeon console, modular light-weight robotic arms and a range of wristed 5 mm instruments. The system uses state-of-the-art 3D high-definition imagery and significantly enhanced flexibility. In short, we’re creating something truly amazing designed to improve the lives of people around the globe; it’s a vision that excites us and hopefully will excite you.

Versius overcomes obstacles to widespread adoption of robotic minimal access surgery, namely robot size, instrument size, versatility, port placement, cost and ease of use, allowing the system to be highly utilised and ultimately cost-comparable to manual laparoscopic surgery.

The Company was formed in 2014 and has its headquarters in Cambridge, United Kingdom. We’re privately owned and enjoy strong financial backing.

We’ll be reviewing applications in Jan 2019, with interviews being held late Jan – early Feb 2019.
