    Biomechanical Engineer, NURVV Ltd, London, UK

    Background to role
    NURVV Ltd have a number of exciting projects under way, our mission is to develop wearable technology products that will allow athletes to maximize their performance. We are assembling a strong team to support our product development roadmap and now require the skills of a Biomechanical / Biomedical / Sports Engineer. This is your chance to join an exciting new company as it grows.

    You will be a highly technically capable person, with a thorough understanding of human biomechanics, motion measurement technologies, signal processing, and contemporary data analysis techniques. You will possess a demonstrable track record of working with biomechanical data to interpret human motion, preferably with experience of wearable sensors and machine learning techniques. You will have a sufficiently broad skillset to be able to contribute effectively across product design, development, and testing activities. You will also possess good oral and written presentation skills. A passion for sport and exercise would be a bonus.

    We are a very entrepreneurial company, which means that working fast, exploring new ideas and solutions, and making things happen are key to our culture. You can assume most if not all projects will be first to market and novel. Not all R&D projects will emerge as products onto the market – you need to be prepared for that - but you will be working within a supportive environment and your work will always be challenging and directed to exciting application areas. We are seeking a colleague who will be enthusiastic, hard-working, and willing to proactively contribute to the team effort in order to achieve the company’s goals.
