  • Location

Breakthrough technology is vital for the future development of global healthcare. You could be at the forefront of this race to invent novel life-changing technologies and products. That’s because TTP is no ordinary product development consultancy. Your work 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.

You’ll immediately benefit from our culture of freedom. This, along with our collaborative culture, encourages teamwork, collective learning, and innovation. It also creates unique opportunities to develop skills in project leadership and client management to keep your professional development on track.

By operating at the intersection of early-stage invention and engineering implementation, your ideas will become a reality as you contribute to the rapid development and implementation of technology.

Besides conquering technical challenges and building strong project teams, you’ll also get to enjoy evolving your insight into the healthcare market and using it to uncover new business prospects and new areas for our medical technology consultancy services. This, in turn, will create leadership opportunities for your career development - and you’ll get to explore your professional growth regularly with the help of a dedicated career coach.

TTP will provide you with varied and fast-paced work with a focus on technically stimulating projects for clients ranging from stealth-mode start-ups to multinational corporations. In short, this is a fantastically agile role beyond the realm of traditional mechanical engineering.


If you’re an experienced Mechanical Engineer with a track record of academic excellence, your CV will appeal to the hiring team.

Equally, we’re keen to hear about your collaborative, analytical, and structured approach when tackling complex technical challenges.

Every step of the way, you’ll be supported by multi-disciplinary teams of scientists, engineers, and designers. We’re a business of individuals – however, it's our deep-seated curiosity around technology that brings us together, and it drives what we do.

It’s a working culture that allows you to continuously develop and broaden your expertise beyond pure engineering and into project leadership, strategic development, and business development. You will be free to work autonomously, take initiative to explore skunkworks projects and make an impact from day one.

There’s no ‘newbie’ status. You’ll immediately get to share and implement your ideas – whether you’re leading a project or part of a team, the whole structure of TTP is designed to help you thrive. With little hierarchy, there are no corporate hoops to jump through.

TTP is an employee-owned business operating from green surroundings in Melbourn, just south of Cambridge. We encourage entrepreneurship, shared ideas, and technical collaboration while providing you with the freedom to do your best work. We value our collaborative culture, and the benefit in-person interaction brings to our colleagues and to the business. We also understand the importance of work-life balance and offer flexibility in how you self-manage your working week.

Inclusion and Diversity

Our business revolves around collaborating with one another to tackle genuinely hard problems. Equality and diversity in the workplace are some of the most challenging problems facing society. We can’t profess to be perfect in this regard or to yet have all the answers. But we continuously strive to do better, and we fundamentally believe in the power and importance of diversity – both for our community and for the overall success of our business.

We, therefore, encourage applications from all individuals. Whatever your background, whatever your identity: we would love to hear from you.
