THE COMPANY » Hawk-Eye Innovations, a Sony company, develops the most sophisticated officiating tools in sport.

If you like to challenge yourself, innovate, and develop disruptive technology, you’ll love working here.

As a Graduate Product Engineer you will be involved in the design process of new features and will be given an opportunity to improve our existing products as well as to generate ideas for new products.
