Artem provides services to the entertainment industry, working in Film, TV, Exhibition and Museum sectors amongst others. Because of the unique and individual demands of specific projects, we are often required to create bespoke electronic controls and interfaces to support these endeavors. These may range from a simple flashing LED to a radio control system for a full-size train. On occasion, timescales for provision may be extremely short, thus a flexible approach to the work is definitely required.

Required Skills -
Electronic design, primarily digital, but occasionally some analogue, to include appropriate selection of components, (interface devices, power drive components and so forth), for a given application, according to budget and time constraints.

Familiarity with microcontrollers (Arduino,PIC,etc.) and their use in control circuits, (particularly power control such as switching of loads, and control of AC and DC motors).

Experience in the use of high level programming languages such as C,C++ AND BASIC.

Experience in the creation and production of PCBs (layout, adherence to required design rules, arranging for manufacture etc.) would be beneficial.
The individual will have an electrical technician helping on projects, and be expected to work with varying team sizes to deliver projects to completion.
Salary will be dependent on experience but in the region of £35- £45,000 per annum in the first instance. With the possibility of additional profit related bonus payments.

The post is based at Artem's main studios in West London.
