This role would suit a candidate with a solid foundation of technology consulting looking to move into a commercial role or a deep tech product owner looking for a move into technology consulting.

You will build strong relationships with clients by understanding their needs and discover new opportunities for TTP.

In this role, you will have a fantastic opportunity to head up new technologies, influencing the direction of the autonomous team. You will be involved in wide ranging aspects of technology and product development such as invention, analysis, computational modelling, prototyping, laboratory testing, process development, product design and transfer to manufacture.

In addition to leading challenging projects you will identify new commercial opportunities and develop enabling technologies that unlock them.


The essential requirements for this role are:

  • A bachelor’s degree in a mathematical science or engineering. A PhD or similar is advantageous, if pertinent to autonomous technologies.

The following attributes are highly desirable:

  • Creativity. You enjoy finding innovative solutions to problems and apply your technical knowledge to come up with creative ideas.

  • Insatiable curiosity. Whether it’s new technology or how a business makes money, you dig deep to generate valuable insight.
  • Analytical approach. You apply your knowledge and research skills to undertake detailed analysis of technical problems.
  • Communication skills. You enjoy collaborating and presenting your work to others.
  • Energy. You seek new responsibilities, take on challenging objectives, and pursue them with tenacity and pragmatism.
  • Initiative. You take action to exploit opportunities – whether technological, commercial, personal, or otherwise – and make the most of them.
  • Leadership. You build collaboration by engaging with the needs and perspectives of clients, colleagues, and other stakeholders, enabling you to act in others’ interests, build confidence, and establish trust.
