Principal Electronics Engineer – Health Tech


TTP is no ordinary technology consultancy. Your work as an Electronics Engineering Consultant will have a real-world impact. You’ll get to create prototypes and inventions by translating complex science and new technologies into simple-to-use, patient-centric solutions. It’s a role that will grab and retain your interest and attention through a continuous variety of technical and intellectual challenges.

Our projects are intriguingly unpredictable. This means you’ll get to work on everything from early-stage proof of concepts and prototypes to product development and release. You’ll get to work on a challenging mix of electronic developments, high-speed digital tasks, and low-noise analogue circuits. There will also be opportunities to design low-power microcontrollers, customised sensors, and complex surgical robotics systems.

We’ll help you develop into a consummate consultant. This means you’ll grow your technical, project leadership, and client-facing skills to new heights. You’ll also get to evolve your insight into the healthcare market and use it to uncover new business prospects. This, in turn, will create opportunities for your career development – and you’ll get to explore your professional growth regularly with the help of a dedicated career coach. Even our most experienced employees find opportunities to grow and develop while sharing their expertise with others.

TTP will provide you with varied and fast-paced work focusing on technically stimulating projects for clients ranging from stealth-mode start-ups to multinational corporations.


You’re an established Electronics Engineer; you’ll likely have 3+ years post-graduation experience in academia or industry, with a track record of achievement and academic excellence.

We’re keen to hear about your collaborative, analytical, and structured approach to tackling complex technical problems. Your CV should cover electronics design activities with a reasonable level of complexity. Your application will have a distinct appeal if you include details of analogue/digital design, schematic capture, microcontroller firmware experience, and hands-on testing/debugging.

Although it’s not critical for this role, if you have FPGA experience, you could apply these skills to medical imaging such as ultrasound and X-ray.

Why TTP?

At TTP, you’ll get to tackle problems that could impact the patient experience globally. Here are a couple of case studies to showcase the kind of pioneering inventions you could help create:

CoVent – TTP’s rapid manufacture ventilator for COVID-19 patients — TTP

Ultrasound feature: Med-Tech Innovation — TTP
