Careers at Eight 19

Unique opportunities to contribute to the development of next-generation technology at our head office in Cambridge.

Current vacancies as follows:

Process and Test Technicians

Eight19 Ltd commercialises printed, flexible, polymer-based solar cells.

The company is currently recruiting two Process and Test Technicians who will be part of a highly skilled and adaptable technical team.

Each Process Technician will have responsibility for day to day processing and testing of plastic solar modules. They will work in close collaboration with Eight19 scientists and engineers.  The ideal candidates will have experience in working in a wet lab environment and be used to processing and testing complex samples.

The successful candidates will be motivated, attentive to details, focused, with good oral and written communication skills and be strong team players. We are particularly seeking candidates with industrial experience in working in a clean room or controlled environment (e.g. biotech), product fabrication and testing, and equipment maintenance.

Expertise in roll-to-roll printing and coating and electrical device testing would be a bonus.

Experience in a high tech start up and a track record in working with technical software or data analysis would also be highly relevant.  As with many start-up companies, flexibility and adaptability will be essential, and these qualities will be expected of successful candidates.


Between them, the Process Technicians will be responsible for:

  • Device fabrication on lab- and pilot-scale coating machines
  • Machine and materials preparation and clean-up
  • PV module back-end processes, including encapsulation and laser cutting
  • Performance and stability measurements
  • One of the candidates will need experience and be responsible in the maintenance of equipment including environmental chambers and electrical characterisation systems
  • Data recording and analysis
