You will drive the quality and performance of our products by identifying opportunities for improvement from field, supplier and manufacturing data. You will support the manufacturing engineering team in troubleshooting and resolving issues discovered during production. You are responsible for all aspects of design documentation including requirements specification, engineering analysis, schematic capture, test plans/procedures, design verification, the release of circuit boards and products to production, and production start-up support.

You are responsible for

  • Create robust, reliable electrical board/system designs for defibrillation therapy equipment with complex electro-mechanical, user interface, patient-response control, fault tolerance and regulatory requirements.

  • Develop and document designs in compliance with Quality System requirements.

  • Integrate new technology, techniques, and concepts to enhance functionality, simplify designs, improve reliability, and reduce production costs.

  • Work with Manufacturing Engineering and contract manufacturers to plan and execute Design for Manufacturability and Design for Testability activities

  • BEHAVIORS: The successful candidate will demonstrate:

  • The ability to efficiently analyze and resolve complex technical issues and evaluate tradeoffs to resolve technical problems and achieve overall project objectives

  • Strong technical competency

  • The ability to meet project commitments (schedule, cost, and project goals)
