(“CTT”), recognised as a 2021 Best Startup in Cambridge, UK, as well as one of only 22 European companies named to the 2020 EE Times Silicon 100, is a fast growing and exciting company combining touch, AI, cloud, and edge technologies into its market leading UltraTouch location and force sensing solution. Founded in 2011 as a spin out from the University of Cambridge, and based on the world-renowned Cambridge Science Park, CTT develops and commercialises its patented technology for next generation smart devices and surfaces. Backed by multinational strategic and venture capital investors, and with a strong international team in Asia, Europe and the US, the company is entering an exciting growth stage within our target verticals of consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, and medical markets.

For this role, we are looking for a Senior Sensor Engineer with 5+ years’ experience in a commercial environment. The candidate must have a deep knowledge of using tools such as COMSOL Multiphysics to simulate sensor behaviour. Furthermore, the candidate must understand the impacts of sensor performance parameters as part of an overall sensor system, to make optimised design choices.

As a Sensor Engineer, the key skills and qualities required are:

  • A Masters’ Degree in Physics, Electronic Engineering (or equivalent qualification) to at least 2.1 level. A doctorate in a relevant field is desirable
  • At least five years of relevant experience in the simulation and modelling of complex electromechanical devices, or a related field
  • Expertise in finite element simulation in mechanical and electrostatic domains
  • An understanding of sensor physics and sensor systems design
  • Experience of processing and analysing datasets and deriving simplified models of complex data
  • Experience of preparing reports and presentations for external parties
  • Excellent spoken and written English, with clear communication skills and an understanding of good documentation practices
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team

And some beneficial skills (not essential) may involve:

  • Experience of sensor design and engineering
  • Experience of simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics
  • Experience of data processing using MATLAB
  • Knowledge of piezoelectric sensors and materials

Envisioned duties will include:

  • Creating, implementing and optimising sensor designs using multiphysics simulation
  • Generating simplified models to explain sensor behaviour
  • Leading feasibility studies and report to customers
  • Exploring, proposing and evaluating the impact of new ideas and giving direction to CTT’s technology development programmes

The candidate must be prepared to get hands-on and work in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment with a passionate team of engineers. The candidate should possess a strong motivation for start-up culture and success through stock options. There is an excellent potential for professional growth and financial gain.
