My client is a highly successful and iconic creative technology and manufacturing company, that create exciting and innovative inventions and tech.

They are in need of Test Engineers to work on a variety of electronics such as motor, battery, digital and sensing technologies, and electro-mechanical systems.


  • Working closely with the Test and Motor Drive Engineers, you will follow existing (and create your own) Test Methods for DDM system characterisation.
  • As directed, complete analysis of test data from motor and product verification to identify issues, non-compliance and opportunities for improvement.
  • Generate high-quality test reports with all data and findings from all work undertaken.
  • Liaise with the motor drives, control and software engineers to create electronics test rig set ups with a focus on automated testing.
  • Identification of issues and repair of commonly used electronics prototypes for testing.
  • Assist other engineers within the team with the creation and review of documents such as design schematics, design notes, FMEA, Failure analysis reports, technical review documents and part approval to ensure the lessons learned from tests are captured.
  • Be familiar with the use of TestStand to develop client sequences for the automation of verification scripts.

These are the essential skills we need you to have
