Business Development, Smart Sensors

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is looking to continue to develop their career in the area of Smart Sensor technology by working as part of an agile, innovative business.

Plextek is a consultancy at the forefront of business and product innovation, developing and commercialising diverse technologies across a wide range of market sectors, from consumer, medical and wireless applications to security and defence. It is the development partner of choice for 300+ major global organisations, government bodies and ambitious start-up companies.

You will join a talented team based in our offices in the Cambridge area, working in a friendly but fast paced and responsive environment in an established company with a very strong track record of delivery.

We are seeing strong growth in Smart Sensor opportunities thanks to our background as an electronics systems specialist, designing and implementing sensing solutions incorporating technologies such as novel sensors and signal processing, machine learning and secure communications. We have an established capability in manufacturing, from bespoke one-off systems to medium volume off-shore production.

Working in collaboration with our sales and marketing team you will help to develop the strategy for growth of the Smart Sensor business, along with the execution of significant personal sales and marketing, and client management activities that result in continued growth of this important sector.

Business development at Plextek is about selling a capability, rather than an existing product portfolio, so identifying possible opportunities demands a solid understanding of the technical issues involved in a potential application. In order to identify opportunities that fit the company's skill set, and to hold your own in discussions with technical specialists, you will need a degree in electronics or software and some direct experience of bespoke product or system development.

Ideally you will have experience of business development for design services or bespoke systems relevant to Smart Sensors. This experience could be across a range of markets, or in one of the key markets for Smart Sensor technology, such as transport, retail, environmental sensing, utilities, energy & power.

You will be based at our offices in the Cambridge area and must expect to travel frequently on business. Excellent communications skills are a prerequisite.

Owing to the nature of some of our business activities, all our positions require candidates to be able to gain SC security clearance. See link for more details
