We’re looking for experienced contractors to support us on developing a complex multi-element test and CI infrastructure. The contract is for 6 months, with the view to later review the workload and possibly extend if required.


The job

We work with our clients to design and develop cutting edge wireless technologies. We’re unable to disclose too much information due to client confidentiality but you’ll find yourself working on a satellite telecoms infrastructure, including virtualised and physical satellite modems and gateway components.

All of our projects are multidisciplinary, so you’ll be working with the huge variety of designers, engineers and scientists we have at Cambridge Consultants. Our work is challenging yet rewarding, and you’ll be busy solving technical problems alongside our collaborative and creative teams from the get-go.

We can start you right away and are able to facilitate remote working throughout the duration of the contract.


What we need from you

We’re looking for contractors with the following:

Extensive Python experience
Experience with embedded hardware
An understanding of communications protocol stacks
