Hi-tech firm starts recruitment drive following move to Paignton

Torbay Weekly

An award-winning hi-tech company that recently moved to Paignton's EPIC centre is now recruiting new staff.

EPIC houses several up-and-coming businesses that are creating high-profile jobs and opportunities for the local area - an example of this is Nanusens, who moved into the centre earlier this year.

The company has created a single chip solution that is going to revolutionise many of the devices that we use on a daily basis.

Their market disrupting technology frees up space that can be used for larger batteries for longer operational life battery or additional features.

To support this expansion, Nanusens are now recruiting for four new positions, all of which will be based within EPIC. These include an MEMS engineer, software lead, product manager sensors and product manager RF.

Nanusens develop Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) sensor structures that are up to ten times smaller than competitive technologies. This enables its award-winning sensors, which can be used in everyday items such as earbuds and smartphones, to make additional space for larger batteries and additional features.

Speaking when the firm moved to Paignton, Nanusens CEO Dr Josep Montanyà i Silvestre said: “This is an amazing area to locate a business like ours.

"We have access to amazing facilities within EPIC and are excited about the prospect of collaborating with the businesses that are already here. Torbay Council has been very supportive so far with helping us make this move.”

Nanusens was the first international electronics firm to move to Torbay this year with a North American electronics business also lined up to join EPIC as soon as physically possible.

EPIC centre director Wayne Loschi said: “It is very encouraging that Nanusens has chosen Torbay and EPIC as the location for its global headquarters.

"We’ve worked hard to welcome this lucrative business to the area and it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to attract such a company.

"We are now looking at ways in which we can support Nanusens further to help it with its projected growth.”
