Manufacturing Test Technician

Manufacturing Test Technician

We are looking for manufacturing test technicians to carry out the system testing of our state-of-the-art surgical robotic system at our Cambridge site. If you’re looking for a challenging role, where you can learn on the job encompassing a range of skills from electronics, test and measurement through to precision mechanical assembly, then this could be the perfect role for you.

Why join us?

CMR is one of the UK’s most exciting companies to be joining right now. The scale of our ambition to build a world-class medical devices company in Cambridge is matched only by the breath-taking innovation that underpins our next generation of surgical robot. We’re an award-winning company that plans to significantly disrupt the way surgery is performed for the benefit of millions of patients all around the world.

Our values are ambitious, humble, people focused and fair and responsible. If you share these values, our passion for improving lives, and have the skills to make a real difference to the way minimal access surgery is developed and delivered, then it’s a great time to join us.



Working as part of a close-knit team, this role will see you taking responsibility for:

  • Running end of line testing of medical devices assembled in manufacturing, ensuring product has been built and functions against a defined specification
  • Providing a detailed account of all findings found during testing, which will include raising non-conformance reports to document faults
  • Generating and writing up of test reports that clearly record the results of testing
  • In addition to testing, you will be called upon to assist with basic troubleshooting and fault diagnosis for assemblies not meeting specification


About you

It’s taken for granted that you’ll be great at working as part of a team, bringing your strong work ethic, attention to detail and a proven desire to deliver high quality results. We’d also like you to have:


  • A can-do attitude including being proactive in areas such as continuous improvement to streamline processes
  • A self-starter demonstrating ability to manage your own time and prioritise your own work
  • Experience of conducting testing on complex electromechanical assemblies and reporting test results
  • Experience with diagnosing issues through data analysis and extracting information from logs is desirable
  • Proven practical experience of high-tech assembly or test (preferably within a regulated environment such as medical/pharmaceutical or aerospace)
  • A careful approach to assembly, lab and tool use
  • The ability to keep accurate records, in line with cGMP
  • Experience using test/measurement equipment such as bench power supplies, multi-meters and oscilloscopes

Naturally you’ll have a relevant NVQ / BTEC qualification, and at least 5 GCSEs at greater than C grade.  Good written English is essential, as is the ability to use Microsoft Office suite tools, including Excel. Experience with python, minitab and Jira tools would also be desirable.


The Package

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package (including non-contributory pension scheme, cycle-to-work scheme, life assurance, and our legendary monthly 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.
