Senior Systems Engineer – Smart buildings

This is an immediate requirement for a Systems Engineer or Security Engineer with experience of working on a range of networked and connected sub-systems.

A great opportunity has arisen for a Senior Design Engineer to work for a leading smart buildings and infrastructure company in Central London. This Engineer role will be working at the systems level to deliver a range of electronic and ICT systems being incorporated into new infrastructure like hospitals, universities, sports stadiums, museums and railway stations.

This role will work with customers to determine their technical requirements and then with 3rd parties responsible for the installation and delivery of the sub systems you have put together.

Traditional areas of expertise include security systems (CCTV, access control, intruder detection), IT infrastructures, Audio Visual systems and building management systems.
