Mechatronics Engineer

  • Location
    Cambridge, United Kingdom


We are looking for talented and versatile Mechatronics Engineers to join a new, ambitious venture within TTP creating novel solutions for cell therapy manufacture.

Therapies that treat cancer by re-training the patient's own immune system are coming to market in very small numbers, with over a thousand in the trials pipeline. Giving patient access to these requires a revolution in manufacturing and process automation. We are currently developing breakthrough technologies to enable this step-change and bring cell therapies to all who need them.

This is a varied role that will include designing, testing, and improving precision manufacturing processes and systems. You will be working in multidisciplinary teams of Life Scientists and Engineers with a passion for solving worthwhile problems.


To succeed in this role, you will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • A strong academic background in Engineering, Electronics, or Software
  • Broad, hands-on engineering skills ideally spanning mechanical, electronics, control software and problem solving.
  • You might have deep skills in one area, or be relatively inexperienced in another, but able to work effectively with others to fill in the gaps.
  • A feel for precise assemblies and behaviours of materials.
  • Ability to assimilate loose and changing requirements and turn them into elegant and robust solutions.
  • A flexible and adaptable approach to work with an innovative, start-up mentality but with precision and diligence.
  • Experience working with novel life science or medical technologies would be an advantage, but not essential.


  • Employer pension contribution of 12%
  • Profit related bonus
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Free lunches on site
  • An employee wellbeing and support programme
  • Discounts and memberships to local sports facilities and the theatre
  • Cycle to Work scheme
  • Interest-free season ticket loans
  • A comprehensive relocation package is also available, if applicable.
