Hear from our people
Joshua, Software Test Engineer
For me it is crucial to work somewhere that aligns with my values and I have definitely found that in ZX Lidars. Not only are we a company that strives towards a greener future, but also an environment where we are valued as individuals.
I have freedom to work in ways that suit me and can pursue my own endeavors.
Renate, Inventory Technician
I joined ZX 9 months ago, having never worked in a similar field. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome, the amount of support, training, and help I received coupled with the professionalism and friendliness of my colleagues.
My current role as an inventory technician allows me to apply my organisational and communication skills and to grow on a personal and professional level. What stands out to me about ZX is their modern work practices, green initiative and all of the hard-working individuals who are part of the company.
Wulstan, Sales Manager
I joined the Sales Team at ZX Lidars 8 years ago after skipping university and shunning the draw of a bigger city. I was fresh into the wind industry and in denial about wanting a career in sales, but I think it’s fair to say ZX took a chance on me, and I’ve never looked back.
I’ve found a real home here, in a diverse team where everyone genuinely contributes something different. That’s one of the strengths of working here, and of the wind industry as a whole; you’ll be welcomed warmly and valued for exactly who you are, with plenty of encouragement and support to grow. After almost a decade I still learn something new every day, talking to people from all corners of the world, in a job that can really make a difference.
Laura, Finance Manager
Living in a part of the country normally known for its agriculture and tradition, having the opportunity to work for a company at the cutting edge of technology is really exciting. I hadn’t previously thought much about the industries I had worked in, but now I’m in the renewable energy sector I’ve found a new pride in my work.
With the company experiencing year-on-year growth and investing in its own future, I look forward to developing myself and growing with it. As well as ZX headquarters being located in the picturesque countryside, the working practices are agile and modern. This allows me to be flexible; balancing my week between home and the office whilst maintaining a close-knit team.
Ian, R&D Technician
I have worked for ZX Lidars in the R&D/NPD department for nearly three years.
As a department we produce prototypes, carry out field testing and conduct experiments with the aim of increasing the company product range and promoting our technology within the wind energy sector.
Since joining the company, I have progressed in many ways with new skills and qualifications gained and all offered by ZX Lidars. Such achievements are Workshop/Lab Supervisor, Company First Aider, Fire Marshall and recently I have become IOSH qualified.
Seyi, Senior Scientist
I enjoy solving technical problems and find the opportunity to apply physics and mathematical analyses within a business-driven environment is just right for me.
Megan, Environment & Sustainability Officer
My role at ZX aligned perfectly with the knowledge and skills I have acquired since graduating from University in being able to support the integration of sustainability and environmental practice in the business.
My role is dynamic, and extremely fulfilling, where there are always opportunities to build and progress. Being able to work with others who also share a passion to make a positive difference is incredibly rewarding and the ZX team are so welcoming, supportive and knowledgeable.
Nathan, Head of Tools & Validations
I joined ZX in 2018 as a Data analyst straight from University where I had just finished my PhD. I found an ideal workplace at ZX which has allowed me to get involved in a wide range of activities and put the skills I learnt during my time at university to the test. I’ve also been lucky enough to advance my career here and have the pleasure now of being the Head of Tools and Validation where I take responsible for the quality of the data our products produce and more!
Martin, Apprentice Engineer
I am currently in my final year as an apprentice with ZX Lidars, where I work in the Production and Product Support facility as a service technician. My role is to service, repair and upgrade customer owned lidars which are returned to base. This involves inspecting and testing each lidar, fault finding where appropriate and recommending the work required.
There are lots of knowledgeable, experienced and friendly people within ZX that have always gone the extra mile to assist me in my development. It is genuinely a fun place to work and has motivated me in a way that I didn’t know was possible.
Robin, Senior Electronics Engineer
ZX is a small team, but has consistently led the field of wind Lidar. Having been with ZX for 3 years there is no shortage of work-understanding customer feedback, emerging technologies and innovation.
The dynamic world of science and technology in a renewable market requires focus, leveraging every facet to maintain that market lead while producing quality data that is used to justify vast investments in the wind energy sector. I talk daily to diverse, capable and interesting staff which really makes a difference in this field. You are never far from someone who has something to add to the situation.
Jon, Apprentice Engineer
I joined ZXLidars back in 2017. The ZX team are friendly, supportive, welcoming bunch and have been a joy to work alongside and I quickly felt at home and very much a part of the team.
During my time at ZX Lidars, I have watched the company grow at a rapid rate. With this came several opportunities where I was able to take my previous skills and mechanical knowledge and push myself to progress these skills to the next level, getting involved in a few projects along the way.
Chris, Senior Scientist
I joined ZX over 10 years ago. As a scientist in the turbine lidar applications team, I’ve been responsible for helping develop and refine our turbine mounted lidars. The job has been super varied – no two days ever the same.
Highlights have included being atop a range of massive wind turbines, gently swaying 100+ meters above the ground (or the sea), helping clients deploy our lidars all over the world. Subsequently working with them to assist in analysis of the gigabytes of data that these lidars generate is another type of buzz.
ZX MEASUREMENT SERVICES
I joined the company 3 years ago. The role and the company appealed to me as it offered the opportunity to apply my experience in instrumentation and wind flow measurements, whilst also developing new skills including project management.
The growth of the company and client base has surpassed my expectations. My work is varied, interesting, and most importantly rewarding.

Eva, Finance Manager
I joined ZX Measurement Services as Finance Manager in 2018 shortly after the company first started trading. It was exciting to have the opportunity to be part of a new business and set up finance processes and procedures to support that new business.
The business continues to grow in terms of customers, revenues, profitability, premises and staff numbers; it is great to be part of a business with ambitious growth plans. Working part-time as a home based worker I have found the role to be really flexible.

Stephen, Senior Support Technician
Working for ZX Measurement Services provides me with a great opportunity to be part of the transition from mast to Lidar and is a great fit for me personally.
ZX MS allows me to build on my experience within the industry as well as developing new skills to meet the demands of a growing company. ZX MS and ZX Lidars are very supportive in meeting my needs and offering a flexible working environment.
