Posted on 23 Feb 2011 by The Manufacturer

Irisys, a specialist 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.

The Northampton-based firm, which doubled its revenues last year, is seeking engineering, R&D, manufacturing 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.

The company invests extensively in R&D and holds over 70 patents. One in six employees has a PhD.

“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.”
