At Zero Point Motion we are redefining inertial sensors to enable high precision
positioning and navigation. Our mission is to provide exquisitely low-noise readout of acceleration
and rotation using cavity opto-mechanics in a hybrid MEMS/photonic chip.
We’re a start-up commercialising technology invented by the CEO, Dr Lia Li, and with a founding team including semiconductor veterans, we operate a VC-funded, fabless business.
We're seeking enthusiastic engineers to join our team and shape our technology
design, strategy, and workflow. Together we will bring aerospace/defence levels of sensor
performance to commercial mass markets to transform indoor, autonomous and GNSS-denied
navigation. Can you help us disrupt the inertial sensing market?
You will be involved in all stages of technology and product development including invention, analysis, computational modelling, prototype design, laboratory testing, process development, and manufacturing. Your solutions will be implemented using a variety of platforms including embedded DSP, FPGA, ASIC and analogue systems. You will be responsible for the creation, validation and optimisation of the reference system architecture using Matlab/Simulink, from analysis of transfer models to matching hardware implementation. You will liaise with the MEMS and photonics design teams for accurate modelling of the physical parameters for mechanics, detailed matching of electronic and electromagnetic elements of the mixed signal drive and sensing components, whilst you will work directly with the hardware and software teams to map signal processing functions to FPGA platforms, and verify performance versus implementation trade-offs of the mixed signal and digital domains. You will define and implement the simulation test environments, including methods to test and compare the hardware implementation.
Generous company package including share options, pension, and sick pay

Location & Travel
Zero Point Motion’s office and lab space is located in the Bristol University Quantum Technology Innovation Center amongst likeminded start-up companies. There will be a requirement for regular travel to Bristol (if working remotely) and occasional travel throughout the UK and abroad for conferences, meetings and engineering visits.
