Learn more about this role

Consult Red is a trusted partner to the digital media industry and beyond, driving innovation and delivering support through the entire product development journey.

We apply our cutting-edge experience in product development, hardware, embedded and cloud technology to help companies in all sectors to deliver connected devices and systems.

Over the last several years, we’ve grown from being an embedded specialist in the media sector to a provider working with companies in other industries such as Energy and Healthcare. We’ve applied our knowledge and talent in product development, hardware, embedded and cloud technology to help customers deliver connected devices and systems.

We take good care of our staff, not only in terms of salary and benefits, but also when it comes to their place of service delivery. Our teams work from fully equipped laboratories in Yorkshire in the UK, Wroclaw in Poland and Los Angeles, California.

And, currently, having taken their equipment, office chairs and favourite coffee cups with them, our team members #stayathome and work safely from there.

If that is something you can get excited about, we'd love to hear from you.

Our Recruitment Process

Once you submit your CV, we’ll send you a short online form asking you to confirm a couple of things. This will then go directly to the Hiring Manager to review. We'll often do a short first stage telephone interview to find out more about you and to check that the role would be a good fit for your requirements.

Then, if you progress to interview stage we’ll try to cover off everything we can in one sitting, to make the process quicker for you - which means our interviews can be slightly longer than average. We want you to leave the interview with a real feel for the job and what it’s like to work with us.

If this sounds like what you’ve been looking for, apply today and we’ll be in touch really soon.
