Mechanical Engineer – Microfluidics and devices

Location: Southampton, UK

Job Type: Permanent

Reporting to: Chief technology officer

Compensation Package: £30K – £40K based on experience

Purpose of the role

The purpose of the role is to develop components and systems for the company’s and our customers’ products. These are predominantly in micropumping, microfluidics but may also include system integration and product mass production.

The development engineer is required to take component concepts or process ideas and to work as part of a team to bring them into reality. This will include working with CAD design, FEA analysis, machine specification, tool making and various production techniques. The development engineer will sometimes undertake these tasks directly and sometimes work with a more experienced member of the company who will support them with their expertise. Ideally the development engineer will take responsibility for a signed-up project and deliver all of the technical elements of that project. This will involve either personal delivery or working with subject matter experts within the business in order to get things done. The role holder is expected to be constantly developing and learning, seeing new challenges as a chance to learn and develop by working with others and pushing themselves. Additionally the role will include review of these designs and contribution towards improvements in the designs produced.
