Join a fast paced start-up business with a Dream, a set of guiding principles and a big appetite for having fun. We believe in experimentation, asking for forgiveness rather than permission (a right you earn) and continuous learning. We want you to come help us make stuff - but not just anything, game-changing technologies from concept through to production. We expect all our employees to make a difference, probably by making a bunch of mistakes along the way. This role is not for the faint hearted though, expect a hard graft from day 1 - some of our projects demand long hours and as we're a start-up with an ambitious Dream and a disruptive business model, the road ahead is challenging. In return you will be empowered, you will be engaged, you will learn, you will feel achievement and your career will flourish.
This role requires a graduate from a mechanical or manufacturing engineering discipline. You will join a graduate programme that provides you with exposure and opportunity to develop your understanding and skillsets in the commercial, supply chain, operations and project management functions of our business. The role will require you to collaboratively interact with a wide range of external stakeholders, including customers (OEMs, technology developers) and partners (suppliers, government organisations). We will require you to demonstrate strong analytical and communication skills, and a working knowledge of both CAD and 3D design systems. We will expect you to work closely with Cost Estimation and Supplier Quality Assurance to develop a practical understanding of key manufacturing processes, design for manufacture and assembly, costing methodologies in the design phase of the product life cycle through to assembly cell definition and specification.
