Graduate Mechanical Engineer

How do you plan to engineer the green revolution?
Do you have what it takes, and you would you like to contribute significantly to the success of a growing Electronics team? 
Our offer to you, at Lyra Electronics, is an environment where you can do this.

We at Lyra are looking to recruit the highest calibre personnel to join our highly motivated and friendly team, making their own contribution to a company at the forefront of a fast-moving industry.

At Lyra electronics we design, build and test cutting edge power conversion systems based on complex client requirements. These enter diverse industries ranging from automotive to industrial to marine applications. As a graduate engineer you would be joining a diverse team of subject matter experts to develop the next wave of electrification technology.  

About the role

As a Graduate Mechanical Engineer, your primary purpose is to contribute to the design and development of cutting-edge power converters. Your contributions will feed into multiple high technology projects.

You will benefit from a rotation based training scheme where 3 months will be spent in each engineering department to broaden your knowledge. In this time, in addition to spending time in the Mechanical team you will have the opportunity to contribute and learn about:

Electronics engineering: Electronics hardware and software testing, PCB layout, Design for EMC.

Systems engineering and Projects: Requirements capture, project planning and test specifications.

Software Engineering: Writing software in C to control high voltages and high current converters.

Test Facilities: Planning for and running commercial EMC and environmental tests for customers in our new test laboratory. 

Main duties and responsibilities in the mechanical team
You will take ownership for your own tasks and will endeavour to deal with issues using your own acumen. You will be encouraged to Integrate your own methods and ideas to deliver the company’s technical innovations and be given opportunity to grow, learn, and be guided by experts in the field.
