Why join us?

CMR is an exciting and evolving company to be joining right now. Our commitment to our goal of building a world-class medical devices company is underpinned by the ground-breaking innovation of our next generation of surgical robots and a diverse team of talented and supportive individuals. Everyone at CMR has the passion and desire to make a real difference to the way minimal access surgery is developed and delivered.

We’re breaking new ground which makes working here exciting, it provides autonomy, opportunity and makes the things you do visible – if you’re great at managing your own time, are creative, patient and resilient, we think you’ll fit right in.

The Role

If you’re an experienced mechanical CAD designer we’ve got an exciting job working in our Cambridge office. As part of our growing mechanical team, you will help to create, analyse and develop our state-of-the-art surgical instruments and robotic technology for laparoscopic surgery.


You’ll be part of our ambitious, collaborative and multi-disciplinary medical device development team, designing and developing innovative and complex surgical instruments, consumables and electro-mechanical systems for robotic laparoscopic surgery.

We are looking for someone who can:

  • Create high quality Solidworks CAD models, engineering drawings and parts lists which meet exacting requirements for both high and low volume manufacture
  • As part of a truly multi-disciplinary product development team of mechanical, electronic, soft-ware and system test engineers, deliver project tasks within agreed timescales and budget from early stage design through to validation
  • Collaborate widely across teams to ensure that designs are delivered to the highest standard throughout the product development process.

We’re a high growth company and as such roles change and evolve. We’d expect you to be willing to turn your hand to anything that helps the team deliver its objectives.

  • A HND or degree in relevant engineering discipline and experience of working in a regulated industry
  • A great team player and as keen as we are to produce work to the highest possible standards.

We’d also like you to have some or all the below:

  • Experience of creating and maintaining Solidworks CAD models and drawings (including GD&T and tolerance analysis) and other engineering documentation to achieve high performance and reliability
  • Experience of working with Solidworks PDM professional and systematic design release and change control processes
  • Experience of maintaining designs though whole product lifecycle from concept through to V&V and transfer to manufacture
  • Extensive knowledge of modelling and detailing precision machined components, injection mouldings, MIM parts and complex assemblies
  • Experience of preparing designs for complex electromechanical systems, re-usable articulated surgical instruments and single use consumables is desirable, but not essential.

The Package

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package including non-contributory pension, private healthcare and a bonus scheme. In addition, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork. CMR is committed to promoting a diverse, open and collaborative work environment – a place where we can be ourselves and succeed on merit. We believe an environment like this is where ideas can truly flourish and balanced with a healthy dose of fun, it ensures that our people stay and develop. We welcome applications to join our team from all qualified candidates, regardless of their characteristics.
