The Opportunity

Job Description

We seek a strong product design engineer to help challenge the status quo and manipulate the rules to create the game changing products that put us on the map.

Are you a design engineer with an artistic flair? Or are you an industrial designer with talent for mechanisms? We are looking for you both.

Do you enjoy design? Do you want to work with people who love design? If good design makes you tick, then we are made for each other.


We are a turnkey product development company; creating compelling products that are technically engineered and delivered with manufacturing agility.

Our success is a huge variety of projects and an impressive portfolio of clients. We are passionate about what we do and are looking for equally motivated individuals to join us.


We are based in Whitchurch, Hampshire in a contemporary custom conversion of an old Chapel. It is a creative environment designed to nurture the best of the best and reward them with state of the art facilities, social space, and even a gym.


  • You are a capable product design engineer; either a good eye for design, or an aptitude for mechanical assemblies will be expected.
  • Experience is important... talent and attitude is vital.
  • You are bright. You can't help but wonder about the world. You love doing stuff, and you are fascinated by cool things.
  • You enjoy being busy, you love creating and you have fun.
  • You have sound general manufacturing and material knowledge for casting, moulding and fabrication and an avid curiosity for new technologies and processes.
  • Although very much supported by a broad skilled team you will need to be self-motivated and have pride in achieving.What will you do?
  • You will design products and work in all aspects of the design process, from early concepts to final manufacture.
  • You will be a part of our team.
  • You will explore in CAD, build rigs and test theories and make new ideas possible.
  • You will put the ‘How’ into ‘What if’
  • Solidworks and Keyshot are your tools.
  • Where theory needs the support of data then you will develop test rigs and conduct trials. When ideas become hard facts the mechanical principles will be captured in 3D Solidworks if required.
  • You will communicate and direct suppliers, make the occasional wise crack and have a good taste in music.

How much? 

We always start by asking you, what sort of a salary are you looking for? You tell us what you’re likely to cost and we’ll tell you if our pockets are deep enough.
