What our staff have to say…

Russ Farn

Group Lead for Mechanical Design

“I’ve been working for eg for ten years and have worked on an extensive range projects in the medical, bio-tech/laboratory and consumer sectors. Given my passion for industrial design I’m involved a lot in the early stages of many of these projects, helping clients define what their product should be, developing concept options, executing the design engineering work and finally making it into a reality. It’s incredibly satisfying to see products that we design launch in the marketplace, and that happens a lot at eg.

During my eg career I’ve developed my industrial design, mechanical design engineering and broader business skills extensively. I’ve progressed up the business into a group leader role (design and mechanical engineering group) and now enjoy having a lot of involvement and responsibility in business activities, the sales process and project management in addition to ‘real’ design work on projects. I stay in touch with my design routes by handling a lot of eg’s visual output too.

In summary, eg has been a fantastic place to work for the last nine years and I’m looking forward to that continuing. Our team consists of inspiring individuals who collectively tick all the right product development boxes which we are proud of. We also manage to strike an excellent balance between working hard on interesting projects and enjoying our time together as mates inside and outside of work”

Ollie Croft

Design Engineer

"After previously being employed by eg technology as an intern I was delighted to be able to return permanently as a graduate in the summer of 2015.

As with my time on placement, there has been a vast range of opportunity for me since joining eg. As a design engineer my day to day role looks at the product design process; right from early conceptual sketching up to detailed design for manufacture. I can be working on several projects at once, each of them very different products at equally different stages. For example a standard week might consist of; an internal sketch brainstorm for the styling of a medical device casework, speaking with manufacturing partners about a mechanism I designed for a blood test cartridge, and presenting final stage CAD and renders to a client who is about to sign off tooling for taking their household product to market.

eg have accommodated my interests and skills too and created opportunities such as having input into designs for marketing material, and having a role on the company’s display stand at relevant industry exhibitions. Overall it is really rewarding to be working on mostly medical device design, as I know that my work will eventually be helping others one way or another.

Having a job out in the countryside but living in the city centre is a great balance to have as Cambridge has a lot to offer too. I have a voluntary role in the community which is very different to my job as a design engineer; but eg are supportive and encouraging of this. They understand that sometimes I like to be a bit more flexible with my hours and show an interest in what I, and others, do as a hobby.

It is a friendly and enjoyable place to work and has certainly helped me develop a lot of knowledge and experience on top of my degree."

Max Walker

Intern

For an undergraduate Loughborough University design student, eg technology was a great place to work for my placement. The company is comprised of enthusiastic and like-minded professionals who really helped progress my skills in all respects.

From the outset I received a hands-on approach to training which meant getting involved and learning fast. I was deeply involved with a diverse range of projects in consumer and medical fields, solving problems in all areas of the development process, from designing initial concepts to building and testing working prototypes and even getting products to market.

eg have close ties with a number of smaller innovative and agile companies. It was always exciting and motivating working alongside these teams especially when I was involved with making their ideas a reality. I really enjoyed the great sense of teamwork, working closely with colleagues to realise a solution and regularly feeding back to the client to achieve the best result gave me a great deal of satisfaction, every day.

Outside of work, Cambridge is an exciting and bustling city to live in with easy escapes into the surrounding countryside. There is plenty to do and everywhere is a short bike trip away.

Bec Wilkins

Design Engineer

I really enjoy working at eg technology. We get to work on some really interesting projects mostly in the medical sector, which I love. We work with a lot of innovative start-up companies, so we get to see all sorts of new and breakthrough technologies that are aiming to reach the market. The work is really varied, challenging and interesting.

My role is as a design engineer focused on usability and human factors engineering. This means I get the privilege of gaining insights from potential clinicians and other users that may use the devices, to ensure that what we design meets user needs and is safe to use in the intended clinical settings. I am also involved with designing and testing the user interface of these devices.

eg is such a friendly and relaxed place to work, thanks to Danny and Andrew who value a work-life balance. We have a really co-operative and collaborative team here and that relationship also extends to our clients.

Scott Virgo

Design Engineer

I worked at eg technology as an intern during the “year in industry” part of my industrial design degree course. On completing my degree in 2016, I was invited to join eg as a permanent employee. Since then I have worked on over 30 projects with a range of clients; from start-ups to large multi-nationals on a range of products from medical instruments to consumer products. This diversity across projects, clients and disciplines within the company promotes collaborative working on a daily basis with talented engineers; often providing the entire product solution in-house.

During the last few years I have developed my industrial design, mechanical knowledge and broader skills such as managing areas of projects and overseeing our internal prototyping facilities. Working within an ISO 13485 accredited management system ensures controlled and concise development process, and the way that our design processes are defined here at eg, this does not hinder the creativity on projects.

Relocating to our barn conversion brought some big advantages. Our outside space houses a climbing wall, slackline and ping pong facilities! And we are surrounded by views of open fields, with access to running and cycling routes.

As eg continues to grow in size, the knowledge, expertise, workspace and bicycle racks are also growing at a healthy rate! I am very excited for the future at eg.
