Graduate Electrical Engineer

Role Description

A great opportunity to join an early-stage company on the forefront of technology.

First off, you’ll be someone who has a background and interest in electronics and engineering.

Experience of Linux systems is a must. You’ll be happy writing python / bash scripts to stitch various pieces of test equipment together, as well as interpreting the results, e.g. you’ll know your way round RaspberryPis, Arduinos, and ARM dev systems.

But most of all, you’ll relish the challenge of joining a dynamic Oxford start-up.

How to apply

Send your CV and covering letter to jobs@metaboards.tech. Both should be tailored to the role and together should explain why you would be suitable.
