What does an Pickering Electronics Engineer do?

A Pickering Electronics Engineer is responsible for designing and overseeing all of the electronic aspects of Pickering’s products from design concept to delivery. Our electronics engineers investigate theoretical and practical methods for designing new products and where possible introduce additional product features to enhance the customer experience. All of our circuit diagrams are produced using PCB design tools. An important part of an electronics engineer’s job is to liaise with external suppliers to ensure that they are using the correct manufacturing techniques for our design.


Why is this department important?

For the majority of projects the electronics engineer will be the design authority, so it is their responsibility to oversee all aspects of product development, including testing and verification.


How does this department interact with other departments?

Communication between departments is an integral part of being an Electronics Engineer and is carried out face to face, via telephone, email or video conferencing. It is important that Electronics Engineers communicate with other departments to ensure that decisions made by them do not impact on timescales, design criteria and cost. 


What tools do Electronics Engineers typically use?

A Pickering Electronics Engineering Apprentice will get the chance to use Altium Designer PCB design software, the Microsoft Office suite comprising Word, Excel and Outlook, various electronic measuring devices such as digital voltmeters, oscilloscopes, signal generators, spectrum analysers, network analysers and power supplies.
