Job Description

Great opportunity for a Senior Transducer Engineer to join a world leading organisation and help create some high end desirable products.
You’ll be joining a busy team of R&D Engineers, focused designing high performance components and transducers in collaboration with our product development team. The role responsibilities are centered around simulation work, electroacoustic, electronics and mechanical measurements with a strong emphasis on measured and perceived performance for the design validation and quality control.
The R&D team is responsible for the development of all new products, from headphones to active, wireless and passive loudspeakers. 
As Senior transducer engineer you will be working with product development, production engineering and QA teams, providing your technical expertise in simulation and measurements techniques and assisting them during both pre-production and production phases. This varied role requires occasional far east travel to support our China based production site, up to 8 weeks a year. 
In this role, you will lead the transducer team (2 junior engineers) which is actively involved in the design and development of new transducers and work closely with our product engineers to achieve best in class acoustic performance. The role will cover all aspects of transducer design, from theoretical simulation, to prototyping, measurements and subjective evaluation.
