Electronics Team Leader - UK

We design highly innovative products and your expertise will help to ensure our Firmware and Electronics development is taken to the next level: faster development; more re-use across projects; a lower degree of maintenance; increased functionality and faster communication.

NKT Photonics is an exciting, inspiring place to work where we encourage both personal and career development. To support our plans, we are now looking for a talented Electronics Team Leader to join our growing team.

This is a hands-on role that sits within our R&D group – we want to strengthen this area with a dedicated expert who will lead a small team that designs and develops electronics and firmware for a range of industrial and scientific fiber laser systems and accessories.

NKT Photonics is a dynamic, international high-tech company and a leader in the development, manufacture and supply of high-performance fiber lasers and photonic crystal fibers. We employ some of the best and most creative people in our industry and they have helped to make us one of the fastest growing and most innovative photonics companies in the World. Our site in Southampton focuses on the development and manufacture of industrial Ultrafast Fiber Lasers.

Now is a great time to join us as we embark on significant and hugely exciting growth plans; not just here, but across our global organisation - so be prepared for change and career opportunities!

The Role

  • Lead, motivate, coach and inspire the Electronics team in their daily activities to ensure the successful delivery across our portfolio of projects.
  • Hands-on responsibility for electronics and firmware development for laser products throughout the entire lifecycle.
  • Lead product development (electronics and firmware) and activities concerning product compliance and certification according to industry standards.
  • Take ownership of project work packages and work with project managers to ensure delivery of solutions within tight deadlines.
  • Collaborate closely with project and product stakeholders and communicate information clearly across R&D organisation.
  • Suggest and undertake design improvements based upon improved performance, reliability or reduced cost.
  • There will be some occasional travel to other NKT Photonics offices within Europe.

The Individual

  • Previous, relevant experience of leading an Electronics Design team as well as hands-on experience of inspirational electronics and firmware design. Detailed knowledge of modern electronic and firmware technologies is expected; knowledge of laser systems is advantageous.
  • Motivational leader; able to inspire and develop people to derive collective and personal success.
  • Able to own and lead product development of electronics and firmware for embedded systems over the complete product life cycle.
  • A relevant qualification in Electronic Engineering or Computer Science (or similar) together with a working knowledge of Electronics and embedded systems. The ability to read Firmware code would be expected as will the ability to de-bug both hardware and software. Experience of using Altium for design and layout is also required.
  • Specific knowledge of much of the following would typically be expected: analogue and digital circuit design and constant current sources; safety interlock systems and weak signal measurement; programming knowledge for ARM Cortex and Atmel XMega microcontrollers; familiarity with standard communication interfaces; LTSpice (or similar); design experience for EMC and appropriate regulatory compliance.
  • Well-developed analytical abilities; able to question complex information, identify root-cause and effects and deliver inspiring technical solutions.
  • Able to travel to our sites in Europe.
  • Passionate about what you do.

We embrace a culture in which a healthy work-life balance is encouraged and we promote a positive, supportive working environment.
