Systems & Project Engineer (UK)

Konrad Technologies

Konrad Technologies design, develop and integrate test & automation solutions from R&D through to volume manufacturing across automotive, medical, aerospace and defence, consumer electronics, RF and industrial automation industries. Within automotive we are a global leader in testing of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) sensors and systems, delivering autonomous driving safety for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV).  In manufacturing we provide turn-key production lines across the test lifecycle, from in-circuit / functional PCBA test to end-of-line system level verification. Devices include cameras, mobile phones, LiDAR, ultrasonics and ECUs, integrating a variety of automation processes such as handling, assembly, plasma, gluing, screwing, micro alignment, optical alignment, thermal, welding, leakage and thermal.

 

About the Role

Do you enjoy taking on complex and cutting edge test challenges? Can you turn customer requirements into concepts, and systems designs into reality? Are you a creative and innovative engineer with experience on both hardware and software within the test industry? We are looking for a Systems & Project Engineer to work in a varied role across disciplines, taking responsibility to deliver projects to customers. Projects typically include automated test and automation solutions which span a range of industries.
