As a consultancy, Frazer-Nash’s embedded systems projects vary in scale from independent assessment and assurance of embedded control systems through to bespoke device rapid prototyping and demonstration projects to developing large-scale control systems for some of the most complex and high-profile engineering projects in the UK today.

We look to engage our engineers on interesting and innovative projects that really matter to provide a safe, secure and sustainable future; within the defence, space and renewable energy domains.

Are you someone who can look beyond the task presented, who has a desire to apply their embedded software skills to tackle problems in new industries; to take a systems view to understand our clients’ needs and consult and deliver sustainable solutions that truly add value?

You will be working in a close team with a mix of experience on projects that are varied both in scale and industry sector. We typically have a diverse portfolio of projects ranging from designing prototype electronics / Internet of Things (IoT) devices through to developing large-scale control systems for some of the most complex and high-profile engineering projects in the UK today. This diversity and the growth of our embedded systems development capability provides a wealth of opportunities for career development and progression within our team.
