You can make your career in one of the following departments here at Blackstar Amplification:
You are an experienced electronics designer who understands audio – both digital and analogue, trouble shooting at the design stage, and can explain their approach clearly to others. You are happy to support and enable the design and development of new products, and work on improving existing products within Blackstar. You have a good understanding of all guitar amplification products including analogue and digital, software and hardware-based. You are skilled at supporting and mentoring junior engineers and are able to lead a team of engineers at all levels on new product projects. You are passionate about tone and play guitar.
You are happy to travel occasionally to the Far East, and whilst the standard hours are 8 - 5, you are also happy to get your hands dirty and do as much as it takes to ‘get the job done’. You are comfortable working in a strong team atmosphere; and used to working with many different kinds of people in the course of your working day. You are a self-starter who takes responsibility for the quality of their own work, and for hitting challenging targets.View More Info
