What do you do?
I work in the R&D team, which covers anything from understanding the fundamental principles of how our materials and sensors work, to developing novel sensing concepts to match market demands. It’s a great mix of problem solving, experimental design and project management. It’s really exciting to take a new, seemingly impossible idea - or a complex problem to solve - and work with other people around the world to get to the solution.
The opportunities for learning new skills are endless, everyone has a chance to find their strengths and really build on them. As a small, international company there’s loads of chances to connect with other team members around the world. Teamwork and collaboration are really valued at Peratech. The people here are fantastic, everyone has a great work ethic and a great sense of humour!
Tip to a new employee?
Get involved with other departments as often as you can, and take any chance to speak to people from other teams and countries – it’s a real eye-opener to see all the exciting and innovative projects that we are working on here at Peratech! Take any new opportunity that comes your way, there’s always plenty of people to help you find your feet and who you can learn from.
