  • Testing / commissioning of integrated electro-mechanical assemblies using predefined instructions
  • Coordinating the calibration of tools and equipment
  • Supporting the assembly and test of integrated robotic arms and other sub-systems
  • Supporting the testing / commissioning / debugging of integrated robotic sub-systems, including documentation
  • Supporting best practice in our lab spaces

We are a high growth company and as such roles change and evolve. We would generally expect you to be willing to turn your hand to anything within the field service remit that helps the team deliver its objectives.

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

  • Experience and practical skill in repair of high-tech assemblies, including mechanisms and electronics.
  • Attention to detail and quality with a willingness to continually improve processes
  • Ability to interpret and follow schematics
  • A can-do attitude for a variety of tasks including maintenance of tidiness and organisation in a busy lab environment
  • Proven practical experience of high-tech assembly or test (preferably within a regulated environment such as medical/pharmaceutical or aerospace)
  • A meticulous approach to repair, assembly, lab and tool use
  • A strong problem-solving mindset
  • The ability to keep accurate records, in line with the Company’s Quality Management System
  • Experience using test/measurement equipment such as bench power supplies, multi-meters and oscilloscopes
  • Field Service experience, familiarity with ISO 13485, and ESD awareness are desirable.

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 of Jira (Atlassian software) is 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.
