Job Details

Breakthrough technology is vital for strengthening the UK’s Defence and Homeland Security. As a Hardware Engineer at Awerian, you will be at the forefront of this innovation race to defend and protect the UK from the latest technological and cyber threats. 

Your work will have a real-world impact. You will get to explore pioneering concepts by collaborating with elite multi-disciplinary teams of highly educated and skilled scientists, engineers, and designers. You’ll see ideas become a reality as you create impactful hardware solutions through Awerian’s rapid approach to design and implementation. It’s a fantastically challenging, varied, and agile role.

As a Hardware Engineer, you will get to tackle diverse, real-world challenges from the ground up. Typically, this will involve going through the whole product life cycle, you will capture requirements, design, develop, document, test, and deliver through to production. Awerian’s wide variety of intriguing projects, from proof-of-concept through to working prototypes, provide both intellectual and practical challenges.


You will have a track record of academic excellence, hold a relevant degree, and have proven technical capabilities including the design and development of technology solutions. You will need knowledge of interfacing to high and low speed peripherals, running simulations and testbenches and performing hardware-level debugging.

Ideally you will also have notable experience in two or more of the following areas:

  • Practical experience of working on systems integration;
  • Experience with circuit design and schematic capture, ideally in Altium;
  • Have experience of collaborating with Software Engineers on system architecture, interfaces & hardware procurement;
  • Harmonising conflicting system requirements using expert knowledge of component capabilities.

We are keen to hear from Hardware Engineers with experience in any sector, however, experience in defence would be useful.
