Based in Cambridge, this R&D Centre is one of several groups that are part of a global network of innovation teams for this European headquartered company. In this small (but growing) multidisciplinary team, they are recruiting for a new Technology Specialist to join them. The group explore technologies and drive forward innovative product concepts which build on the growing portfolio of connected and smart home products.
Key activities would include: horizon-scanning, online research, and attendance of events related to smart home technologies (including sensors, wireless communications, robotics, computer vision, data analytics and machine learning); developing proof of concept prototypes; liaising with UK companies and universities to develop collaborative partnerships; and explore feasibility projects.
This is not your usual engineering role, and requires interested candidates to be adaptable and keen to work on cutting edge / emerging technology areas. Projects may not fall-into-your-lap, and it is expected you would be pro-active and keen to seek out interesting technologies. In return, you will be part of a network of innovation, and contribute to projects on products-for-tomorrow.
Keywords: Creative Invention Ideas, Electronics, Sensors, Machine Learning, Smart Home Applications, Prototyping, Collaborations, R&D, Innovations, IoT
