Northampton hi‐tech firm aims to attract UK’s brightest engineers

Irisys, a global leader in infrared solutions, has embarked on a major recruitment drive. The 90‐strong company plans to increase its workforce by over 20 per cent in 2011 and is seeking top‐flight engineering, R&D and technical staff.

The move follows strong growth in demand for its range of thermal array based products, predominantly from export markets, for a range of applications including retail, preventative maintenance and security.

“We’re now seeking the UK’s brightest engineering talent,” said COO Dr Ian Wilcock. “We need graduate and postgraduate developers and engineers to work on our detection and imaging solutions for a wide range of commercial applications, based on our proprietary thermal imaging technology.

“They’ll be working on diverse projects involving image processing algorithms, pattern recognition systems, tools development, and customer facing applications. These are unique and innovative systems solving real world problems”

Irisys also wants to recruit technicians and manufacturing staff. There are currently 14 positions available. For more information, see
