Grow your career with us

Careers at MK contribute to developing the latest technology, helping our customers to improve their testing.

Join us to help achieve this mission.

If you’re skilled, enthusiastic and are looking for the next step in your career then you could be exactly who we’re looking for.

As a private equity owed SME, we’re lucky to have a close-knit team combined with the resources to innovate. Since the business began in 1990, we’ve built a customer base which includes the biggest names in aerospace, defence and trains plus several other sectors.

MK HQ in Somerset is home to most of the team, with further satellite offices in the US and Hong Kong.

Known as ATE House, our HQ is the hub of the business and is where all departments operate from. All working under one roof means we avoid silos – teams can all talk to each other face-to-face and information can flow freely.

Our culture is one of teamwork and commitment. In a recent survey we asked our staff what three words summed up MK for them – the most common answers were teamwork, family and innovation.
