Principal Electronics Engineer


Are you ready to use your engineering creativity to lead the entire product development journey, from proof of concept through to validation and manufacture, to create products that will make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals worldwide who are battling with chronic illnesses.

You’ll be joining the biosensing team as an experienced Electronics Engineer, focussing on the exciting and growing area of real-time and near real-time sensing devices. Your ingenuity will help patients diagnose, understand and manage their conditions in areas such as diabetes, orthopaedics and cardiology using wearable and implantable devices.  

As a Project Leader, you’ll run large programmes and manage timelines, budgets, and client relationships – bringing your technical leadership to project delivery. You’ll also get to use your technical skills to drive the right architectural design decisions, identify and manage key risks for our clients, run design reviews and support solving challenging technical problems in highly regulated environments. The work will be varied and fast-paced, involving technically stimulating projects for clients ranging from stealth-mode start-ups to multinational corporations.  

At TTP, you’ll get to explore ideas that could help shape the future of biosensing technologies on a global scale. Here is just one example below of an exciting project that we have worked on within our biosensing team.
