What interests us in a candidate
You should stand out from your peers because of your broad and intuitive knowledge of engineering and/or physical sciences. We work with our customers at the leading edge of technology and you will be able to substantively demonstrate that you can do the same.
Your intrinsic technical knowledge may well stem from your genuine passion for technology, and this will extend to your interests and activities outside of work.
What you’ll be doing
This stimulating graduate/PhD level role will offer you the opportunity to use your scientific knowledge and creativity in combination with our pioneering software to create landmark inventions that will help define the products of tomorrow, in cooperation with some of the world’s most recognised brands. There is no programming involved in this role, but you will work closely with our software team.

- An ability to demonstrate a deep and intuitive understanding of your domain, and to apply this widely across many fields
- Creative and yet also able to accurately and quickly resolve and document highly complex technical ideas

- An ability to communicate technically complex ideas in a straightforward and understandable way
What we offer
We offer competitive packages, performance bonuses and a fast-paced role which will challenge you to learn and create at the highest levels of business and engineering. Contributing to the wave front of technology, this role will also give you the unique opportunity to build your own portfolio of patented disruptive inventions which will be attributed to you, the inventor, and owned by our clients’ businesses.
