Contract Description

What we do

Orvio is an award-winning electronics design+development house, working with a highly dynamic approach to take market-disrupting products from concept to manufacture.

With a strong focus in the IoT (Internet of Things), low-power connectivity, and sensor systems, we work closely with our customers to solve real-world problems across a wide range of areas. We pride ourselves in our flexibility and determination to deliver creative and innovative solutions.

As a start-up we try to differentiate ourselves from our competition however we can, adapting quickly to meet the needs of both our customers and our employees.

The role

You will work alongside a small team of multidisciplinary engineers to build products which address a range of weird and wonderful problems. We 've built everything from film lighting used in a critically acclaimed Netflix series to an anti-suicide device for mental health facilities.

This role will see you work on products across their entire development cycle: from requirements capture with the customer, through feasibility studies, system/software architecture, prototyping, testing, certification, and finally completed product handover.

You will work on a selection of external customer and internal projects using a variety of technologies to deliver the best possible solutions.

If you’d like to work a fast-paced environment where you 'll be required to take initiative, won’t be pigeon-holed, and every day/project is different then we’d love to hear from you.
