My client, a rapidly growing start up in the the field of biotechnology, is looking for a Senior Mechanical Engineer to join the team in Cambridge. This role will involve working on various projects related to the development of their technology platform. This is a rare opportunity to play an important role in the development of a cutting-edge technology, and as part of a dynamic early-stage company. Overall, this role would suit candidates that have a solid background in the mechanical and microfluidics engineering, especially in biomedical applications. Previous experience in the development of systems-on-chip for genetic analysis would be of great value.
Supporting the development of the company's' innovative digital instrument platform
