Careers at Lontra

Lontra careers are dynamic and innovative

We have a world class team of engineers; innovating through all stages in the product development process from concept, through to design, R+D and also build and test.

Here at Lontra our careers stretch across many varied roles.

Our innovation culture permeates wider than our engineering team and includes excellence from our business development to our project management.

This all takes place at our site in Napton, a village in the heart of the Midlands, situating Lontra in the British hub of engineering and manufacturing. Our advanced testing facilities enable us to control and accurately measure the true performance of our products. Also, our vibrant design facilities allow us to capture quality designs in a unique environment. The birthplace of our disruptive compressor technology: The Blade Compressor®

Our manufacturing facility opened in 2020 just outside of Birmingham and we’re truly excited to be part of an area that’s renowned for high-end, competitive engineering and manufacturing.

Lontra Team Testimonials

These testimonials reflect the true value of engineering and R+D within our business culture. 

“Testing and development is all about accuracy and repeatability. It’s more involved than people think. At Audi Group we developed advanced technology for this, at Lontra we’ve taken it to the next level.”

– Carl, Test & Development Manager.

“The best aspect of my job is the emphasis on deeper understanding of the underlying physics. There’s always something new to keep you thinking.”

– Mikhail, Design Engineer.

“The great thing about R+D is that you touch most branches of engineering which makes the work really varied. We take on lots of data on our rigs and it’s always telling a story. I like to tease out the meaning which is often quite hidden and find it really satisfying.”

– Lucy, Principal Development Engineer.

“In my 22-year career in manufacturing, I have never come across a company that empowers their workforce to achieve the company vision and deliver a strategy the way that Lontra has done.”

– Stuart Pickersgill, Head of Manufacturing.

“The best part of my job is the way that everyone pulls together. Compared to other places I’ve worked we’re a relatively small team achieving really big things.”

– Paul, Build and Test Technician.

“What’s been clear to me from the beginning is Lontra’s incredible culture of innovation. Every role is creative and interesting. It’s the most enjoyable part of my job to highlight the amazing work of our team and emphasise why we’re building these technologies: to make the world a better place.”

– Olivia, Social Media and Content Manager.
