Quality Engineer – Design And Development (Medical Device)

Do you love Quality, like in that weird way you really can’t explain but you just couldn’t imagine living without? Does the idea of championing the design control process make you giddy?

Have you trained a group of engineers and seen their glazed-over eyes brighten a bit as they started to catch the vision you were presenting? Have you personally built systems that people want to follow, not because they have to the meet regulations, but because they can see the inherent benefit?

We need you. We have the ambitious goal of taking multiple fully-implantable active Class II/III devices through market clearance in the next few years. And we thought, you know, while we are at it, we should take a handful of very complex high-end external electronic medical devices with really complicated software through a 510(k) submission too! Who doesn’t love a challenge?

We have just gained ISO 13485 certification for our QMS, but we need your help to improve and execute our system processes. We need a Quality Engineer who can comprehend standards into practices that make sense.

Heads up: We have A LOT of work to do. We need a Quality Engineer to drive design controls from concept. You will work daily with our engineering teams, seriously dedicated and creative engineers who need your help to capture, verify and validate their designs above scrutiny. We also need to implement manufacturing processes that are risk based, directed towards supplier qualification and new product transfer that are scalable.

This is a full-time, exempt position, starting immediately in our Salt Lake City office. This position reports to our Operations Manager, Alec Vogel.
