At Goodrich we are designing systems for aircraft of the future, providing actuator drive and power control electronics that help our customers surpass the performance standards of the best aircraft flying today. As a result of more new design wins we are seeking to further expand our electronics hardware design team.
Applying industry leading design and management techniques, our group at Pitstone are creating outstanding aircraft electronics, bringing reliability, high performance, maintainability and enhanced fuel economy to our customers.
We are seeking experienced engineers to execute detailed design of high performance analogue and digital hardware, typically working in teams of two to five hardware engineers within a total team of up to 50 people at our modern Pitstone engineering base. The teams are responsible for carrying out all the tasks required to deliver a system or subsystem on time and to the required quality standards. Engineers will bring good knowledge of modern SMT electronic components, an understanding of when custom components can be incorporated with advantage, and the ability to deploy appropriate software analysis tools as required
Our teams also need to bring to bear sound EMC design skills and a good appreciation of the factors that need to be managed to deliver the size, weight and reliability goals our customers set. Engineers will deliver the documentation for professional or military systems that give customers and airworthiness authorities appropriate assurance that the design has been professionally executed and proven.
We expect our engineers to deploy tenacity, perseverance and sound problem solving abilities, together with a willingness to learn and use new techniques, as Goodrich continue to refine and improve the product development processes.
Our senior engineering people assist project managers with estimating work and ensure they follow through on programmes and ensure timely completion.
You should be prepared to share your expertise and help les experienced staff develop their skills.
You can expect a dynamic environment, where process improvement is a way of life, and we constantly strive to do our work better than before, but also ensure that we take care of our people when a supportive employer is most valued.
