Job Description

From delivering and servicing trains for use in the UK, to intelligent signaling and traffic systems, our mission is to help get people and goods to where they need to go. Our solutions improve and support rail and traffic flow in congested urban and inter-urban areas, as well as connecting our cities.
How do you shape the future through software? We’re looking for the decision-makers of tomorrow. The bright and cool-headed engineering graduates.

The Challenge:
Involvement in a wide range of team project activities over the full product development cycle, which will include (depending on your skill-sets and chosen career path); software development of products from firmware to web based developments, development of new electronic circuits, creation of 2D/3D mechanical concepts and designs, end-to-end system testing across wireless communication interfaces, which meet appropriate standards, production of design specifications and installation guidelines.

Join us on our two year-long graduate development programme to get to know us from the inside and see how we can make a different to society. During this time, your development is intended to provide a thorough grounding in your discipline, develop personal and management skills
As a Graduate Engineer you could be based in one of our engineering teams; Hardware, Firmware, Software or Mechanical. You will be working on engineering projects under the supervision of senior or lead engineers.

·         Projects include tasks such as; evaluation and proof-of-concept of new products, design and development of solutions, system test and install/deployment of the solution.

·         To liaise with other departments such as Sales, Marketing, Manufacturing, Procurement, Project Management, and Field organisations to enable the product to transition from initial concept to production/live environments.

·         To use and propose a range of tools and utilities to aid the design, development, and testing of products, which may include; 3D Mechanical CAD software and various integrated software development tools depending on the platform type, electronic circuit design and analysis software.

·         The graduate will become part of the R&D organisation and will become an integral member of that team.
