Job description

Systems Integration Engineer/Scientist

Oxford, UK

Are you in one particular function such as research, or development; science or engineering and often see the interdisciplinary mistakes of isolated, siloed working? Could you bridge those gaps, and create convergence? Then this could be for you! 

As a point of contact between all technical departments you will encourage, support and strengthen interdisciplinary communication and collaboration within product development. You will remain up to date with ongoing development efforts in each technical team to help guide product development efforts holistically, rather than in isolated departments. This is a multi-faceted hands-on role, which by the nature of the work involved requires the ability to cope with ambiguity and sometimes limited information.

 £30,000 - £45,000


Your Key Responsibilities:

  • Proactively collaborate with colleagues in all areas of system development, from next generation cartridge and instrument, to assay and sensor, with a particular emphasis on interfaces between system modules.
  • Investigate device or experiment failure modes via root-cause analysis.
  • Identify risks and opportunities around system integration
  • Ensure that proposed solutions are appropriate (e.g. production solutions are scalable at an appropriate level of complexity and cost).
  • Disseminate information and coordinate information transfer between development teams to prevent or capture any scope creep, throughout product development life cycle.
  • Generation of specifications and design of experiments to ensure the quality of data being generated at all stages during product development can be as robust as possible.
  • Development and transfer of technologies and techniques via the generation of Standard Operating Procedures
  • Assist risk assessment of new equipment and processes.



You will have a scientific or engineering background with experience in either product development, device manufacture and/or experimental design. You are used to proactively engaging with various, multi-disciplinary teams of people and at various levels of hierarchy with limited to no supervision. You are transparent in your approach to work and in what you do not understand, with no reservations on asking for or providing help from/to the wider company. You are resilient and confident enough to challenge subject matter experts and senior members of development teams and be challenged in return.
