Autonomous Systems Engineer - Consultant

  • Location
    Cambridge, United Kingdom


Here at TTP, our consultants invent novel technologies and technological products to enable next generation autonomy: making a difference to people's lives, growing our clients' businesses, and helping our business thrive. This can be in a wide range of application areas from self-driving robotaxis, last mile autonomous trucks, and medical drone delivery, to enhanced situational awareness in mines.

You will bring deep technical knowledge in an aspect of autonomy such as sensing systems, artificial intelligence, or communications and an understanding of system engineering for autonomous systems. You will use your knowledge and skills to help lead and drive growth in new sectors. In addition to leading challenging projects, you will identify new commercial opportunities and develop enabling technologies that unlock them. You will relish the opportunity to contribute to a growing team.

You will build strong relationships with clients by understanding their needs and using this to plan and execute complex development projects. TTP's clients include multinational household names and fast-paced venture-funded start-ups and you will get the opportunity to work with both.


Your application will stand out if you have:

  • The desire to move into a role with a technical/commercial split
  • A bachelor's degree in a mathematical science or engineering. A PhD or similar is advantageous
  • Industry experience in the development of autonomous systems with an understanding of market trends
  • The communication skills required to seek out new business opportunities
  • A passion for generating new ideas
  • Ability to work outside of your comfort zone
