Careers at Oxsensis



Oxsensis – making sense of extreme environments

Whether it’s in the heat of an engine or the high pressure, low temperature environment of a liquid hydrogen tank, Oxsensis optical sensing systems offer breakthrough monitoring solutions for increased accuracy and reliability. We work as a multi-disciplinary team to define, develop, and refine customer‑driven solutions for real world applications.

We need great people to develop those solutions.

At Oxsensis we have a relaxed and friendly environment where individuals can “be themselves”. We appreciate that our diversity adds strength to our team and value your thoughts and contributions, regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, culture, background or experience.

Oxsensis is located on Harwell Campus, a science and innovation district the size of a small town, surrounded by the Oxfordshire countryside. On-site, you will find a range of facilities including cafés, take-away food court, a nursery and a mini supermarket. The beautiful outside spaces plus the surrounding hills provide an idyllic setting to run, cycle, walk and relax. If you need to head to the city, we’re only 16 miles from the historic City of Oxford, and road and rail links are easily accessed with London Paddington only a 45-minute train journey from Didcot Parkway.

Be a part of the energy transition.  Come and join the team.
