Electronic Engineer / FPGA Engineer (JN -102021-4598)

Our client designs and manufactures continuous inkjet printers to apply identification marks to almost any kind of material for a wide range of industrial sectors, including food and beverage. And these printers are sold exclusively through a network of distributors in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific.

They are looking for an FPGA Engineer to join their team in Arlington, Texas!

This is a great opportunity to join a company wholly owned by a successful UK-based publicly listed business, with a great collaborative environment and opportunities to grow.

You will be part of a multi-discipline team, lead the electronic and FPGA aspects of the design but working closely with software and mechanical engineers and the wider project team to bring the product to market.
