Digital Print & Graphics Technician - Tonejet
Tonejet Limited designs, manufactures and markets digital printing technology and equipment, based on our unique electrostatic drop-on-demand ink ejection technology. Our initial focus is on digital printing of metal packaging, with plans to broaden into other markets in the future. We are at an exciting point in the company’s growth as we approach the first customer installations, while simultaneously looking at new opportunities and applications for our unique and disruptive technology.
We are a subsidiary of TTP Group, one of Europe’s leading technology companies.
We are looking for an all-rounder: somebody to liaise with customers, review and adjust their digital graphics files, operate our digital presses and organise production and shipment of printed proofs and sample batches. Initially the role will be focused on ensuring that our customers receive high quality print samples to assist their buying process. Within the next twelve months (and following full hands-on training on our equipment) the role will expand to include customer installation support, R&D and product development support and ideally management of equipment demos at our factory in Melbourn, Hertfordshire.
This is a varied role that spans hands-on technical work, customer support, digital graphics processing and system demonstrations. We do not expect to find somebody who is already doing all of these things. We are looking for somebody with a grounding in digital printing and graphics, who has the aptitude and the ambition to grow and acquire new skills and responsibilities.
