Graduate Product Development Engineer
Domino Printing Sciences plc, an autonomous division of Brother Industries Ltd, comprises of a group of businesses and brands, each with unique capabilities, targeted at industries utilising coding and printing. Our clever technology enables companies to print product identification and other variable data - such as use-by-dates and tracking codes – on their products no matter what the surface, how fast they’re produced, or where in the world they’re made.
We offer a wide range of printing technologies. Our investment into Research & Development means that we’re continually improving our existing product range as well as developing new innovative products. Covering diverse sectors from food and beverage, pharmaceutical and healthcare, to industrial and construction, our aim is to provide our customers with solutions tailored to the needs of their business.
About the role
As a Graduate Product Development Engineer in our Research & Development team, you will work alongside skilled Systems, Mechanical, Electronics and Software Engineers, taking a hands-on role in the development of new industrial coding and marking products. Projects will range from incremental improvements to existing products, exploring new technology options and clean sheet development programs.
The role includes the development of test plans and strategies, hands on and automated testing of hardware and control systems, data analysis, drawing conclusions and implementing the solutions into the product. Additional tasks could cover CAE analysis to optimise and inform the product design and the opportunity to code control systems using python. Initially you will focus on improvements to specific functions in the products under the guidance of the Systems Development Engineers and on learning about the existing technologies. As your knowledge base, skills set, and company network expand you will gain more responsibility. You will start visiting customer sites and taking ownership for sub-systems and functions in the products throughout the entire product design lifecycle.
You will be mentored by one of our experienced system development engineers to assist you in succeeding in Domino and to provide you the support you require for professional development and career progression. The work at Domino will provide you with interesting technical challenges and valuable industry experience early in your career with a multi-national, award winning manufacturing organisation.
You will have a strong academic background with a degree in Engineering (mechanical or equivalent), and ideally some experience of working in an engineering environment, perhaps from an Industrial Placement year or Summer Internship.
Key to this role is a keen interest in hands-on engineering. In your application, we would love to hear where your curiosity has led you. Tell us about some of the things that you have built, researched, or developed. Examples could come from your university course, industrial placements, or hobbies. Anything that showcases your passion and curiosity in understanding how things work.
We will also be looking for:
- A solid grounding in engineering principles
- Knowledge of fluid mechanics, structures/materials, system design or control theory
- Analytical problem-solving skills
- Positive and proactive approach to work
- A good understanding of general physics
- Basic electronics knowledge
As well as a competitive salary, we offer a generous benefits package including 25 days basic holiday, a discretionary bonus scheme, on-site subsidised restaurant, discounts on local gym facilities, as well as training and development opportunities to progress your career with Domino.
At Domino, we believe in doing more for our employees as well as our customers. A highly successful company, we’re large enough to offer career development opportunities yet small enough for your contribution to be readily recognised and rewarded.
Join us and you’ll be part of an award-winning company that will invest in your development and your career.
