Would you like the chance to play a crucial role in supporting the development of our cutting-edge submarine programmes? We are looking for a Senior Engineer with IT skills and systems engineering knowledge to join us at our site in Ash Vale, Surrey.
As a Senior Engineer, you will be breaking down requirements, designing documented solutions, and developing the product ready for test activities. This is a long term, large scale engineering project, offering you the chance to work on novel equipment and provide solutions to unique challenges, such as those posed in a submarine environment.
In this role you will be conducting systems engineering activities through the engineering life cycle. You’ll be responding to customer requirements, architecting the solution, and working closely with subcontractors to provide a design solution that meets the needs of a submarines combat system.
Your main responsibilities as Senior Engineer - Test Equipment will involve:
Producing system specifications derived from technical requirements, decomposing these into system and subsystem design descriptions, and software/hardware specifications
Developing and testing software components on hardware modules ensuring that both functional and non‑functional requirements have been met prior to submission into formal test
Preparing and presenting design review material at product phase reviews to allow progression through the engineering lifecycle
Investigating and addressing technical issues by modifying existing designs or correcting defects, accurately tracking and maintaining all change records
Ensuring traceability of requirements to their parent system-level requirements and aiding the test team to produce sufficient quality control evidence to allow the production of the system’s certificate of design
Technical input to the project management team to produce robust cost estimates, technical risk assessment and reduction
While not limited to the below, ideally we would like you to have some of the following skills and experience:
Experience of working within an engineering life cycle framework
Experience in producing system specifications from technical requirements and implementing designs from specifications
Programming knowledge (eg C++, C#) on Windows/Linux
Programming for equipment and device control
Experience in the following would also be advantageous.
Experience of scripting (e.g. PowerShell, Bash) and/ or experience with UML modelling
Windows 10 configuration and lockdown
Familiarisation with virtualisation, networking and storage
What we are looking for in you:
We are looking for someone with an interest in the industry, and looking to work on large scale, long term projects. We want you to be a key part of an incredibly complex engineering project, within which you’ll have an innovative approach to problem solving, and will be keen to find novel solutions. You should also be a strong communicator, able to present your ideas and collaborate effectively.
