Medical Devices Development Engineer – Welwyn City Garden

Medical Devices Development Engineer – Welwyn City Garden

A new start-up Medical Devices company, still offering shares/equity, is currently seeking to recruit an experienced Development Engineer.

They require you to lead the engineering progression from pilot to progression.

This role will be split between Welwyn Garden City and Bristol, so ideally, you will be based near Welwyn City Garden, Bristol or Oxford to facilitate travel.

Overnight accommodation will be funded when required at the alternative site.

Additionally, the company will be looking to set up a single site in the long term, so flexibility regarding location in the future will be advantageous.

You will have input on the new site, as your role will be heavily involved in setting up any new manufacturing facilities.

As is typical with start-up opportunity, there is the need to wear multiple hats when necessary.

The key skill sets we are looking for include experience working as a production/manufacturing engineer and a development engineer, or in another role where you have been responsible for transferring Medical Devices from pilot to production.

A background in Medical Devices is essential as you will need to be familiar with working within ISO 13485 standards.

The Medical Devices are implantable medical devices and handheld medical devices, so any specific experience in this field would be advantageous.

Experience within a successful start-up or scale-up company would be beneficial, as your expertise will be valuable.

Alternatively, you may have acquired this experience while setting up new sites for a new product range at a larger Medical Devices company.

Apart from the split of the role between Welwyn Garden City and Bristol, there will also be meetings in London.

There is the chance of hybrid working, but this will be more ad hoc rather than a dedicated number of days per week.

This role offers an exciting and challenging opportunity and will also reward you with a shares/equity scheme, life assurance, pension, private healthcare, income protection insurance, and an employer discount scheme.

These benefits are more in line with those of a larger company.

Due to the anticipated level of interest in this role, we are considering candidates with varying levels of experience, provided they process the right attitude.

Therefore, if you are interested, we recommend submitting an application promptly to avoid missing out.

Once the company identifies the right candidate, they will extend an offer, so we do not expect this role to remain open for long.
