Electronics Engineer

We’re looking for a talented and passionate electronics engineer to join our development team designing and supporting the electronics for our state-of-the-art robotic system. Working as an engineer in the electronics team is a fun and rewarding experience. Working in medical electronics means that the work you do is truly meaningful and follows a more rigorous process, offering greater responsibility in your career. We design and maintain circuits for the robotic system which include motor drives, various sensors, microprocessors, FPGAs, analogue, digital, video and more. As an engineer with some electronics experience behind you there will be more opportunities to take ownership of development activities and to specialise in one of the robotic subsystems. You will be mentored and supported in this by our super approachable senior electronics engineers, whose experience will help you to expand your own skills and knowledge.

About CMR Surgical

CMR is an exciting and evolving company to be joining right now.  Our commitment to our goal of building a world-class medical devices company is underpinned by the ground-breaking innovation of our next generation of surgical robots and a diverse team of talented and supportive individuals.

At CMR we’re pushing boundaries – enhancing immense human skill with technology to deliver the best surgical care which is why we’re proud to be the Official Medical Device Partner of ParalympicsGB, the team of elite athletes that challenge perceptions of what humans can achieve. The team that inspires us with their determination, their precision and control.

We’re breaking new ground which makes working here exciting, it provides autonomy, opportunity and makes the things you do visible. Come and join us and see what you’re capable of.


You will be part of our close knit electronics team that covers the whole range of electronics skills as well as attached to one of our multi-disciplinary subsystem teams where you can specialise in a part of the robotic system. Within this latter team you’ll work alongside mechanical, system and software engineers to deliver the electronics aspects of projects within that subsystem. You’ll also liaise with manufacturing, supply chain and field service engineers to ensure the implementation of your design change goes smoothly, ultimately ensuring it delivers the benefits to patients.

The role will include:

  • Design and support of highly integrated PCBs that have a mixture of power, digital and analogue electronics for robotic systems
  • Prototyping and testing design changes and supporting verification activities such as EMC testing and compliance with safety standards
  • Schematics capture and review and guiding the PCB layout process to ensure mechanical, safety and design intentions are met
  • Work with mechanical, software and manufacturing engineers to ensure designs are optimised for integration with other system components and the manufacturing process
  • Write documentation for requirements, design and manufacturing test specifications
  • Debug issues at PCB and system level and write technical documents to support findings
  • Work with internal and external manufacturing partners to help maintain a design that can be manufactured and tested reliably and repeatably
  • Work at all stages of the design cycle from concept and requirements capture through to transferring the design to manufacture

We’re a rapidly developing company and roles can change and evolve. You’ll be willing to turn your hand to anything within the Systems Development remit that supports the team with delivering its objectives.

About you

Ideally you will be qualified to degree level in electronics or a related discipline with a few years’ experience developing electronics for real world applications, or you may have found another path into electronics and demonstrated your capability through your industry experience. You will be an enthusiastic and proactive team player and keen to produce work to the highest standards.

Desirable skills and experience

  • You will have a solid grasp of electronics engineering fundamentals and their application to real world problems
  • Experience and familiarity with the circuit design process and tools used for schematic capture and circuit simulation
  • Good practical knowledge of analogue and digital electronic circuit design
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Familiarity with common lab test equipment

Experience of the following would also be desirable:

  • Design for manufacture and test
  • Product design processes such as requirements capture, change control, verification, manufacturing and risk analysis methods such as FMEAs
  • Familiarity with designing to medical, safety and EMC standards
  • Designing with programmable logic such as FPGAs and CPLDs
  • Embedded and scripting software (C and Python)
  • Designing electronics in a multi-disciplinary team

At CMR we’re building a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace; what matters most to us is that you identify with our values and are passionate about making a difference so don’t be put off applying if your experience isn't perfectly matched with this role.

We’d really like to hear from applicants from underrepresented groups and we recognise everyone has individual personal circumstances, so we’re open to discussing reduced / flexible / hybrid working hours for this role.

Why Join Us?

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package including a bonus, non-contributory pension, private healthcare which covers pre-existing conditions, annual personal day for every employee to use however they wish and enhanced global parental leave pay.

We recognise that everyone has a life outside of work and at times we can experience things which are significant and can impact on our working lives. We’ve just launched our Global Parental Leave and Health and Wellbeing leave supporting our colleagues going through the menopause, fertility cycles or pregnancy loss and those going through gender reassignment; allowing them time to look after themselves and those close to them.  

Interested? We’d love to hear from you!
