Electronics (test development) Engineer

 

Your challenge

 

You will be part of the Go-2 project team that designs, develops and implements a class III implantable medical device for electrical spinal cord stimulation with in and out body parts, featuring a closed loop control system. The type of work will vary throughout the phases of the project.

 

• Initial focus is on development of tests and test tooling for feasibility testing on prototypes. This will consist of LabView test development and electronics test tool development.

• Next, the focus will shift towards providing testability input to designers and start working on the development of design verification specifications and automated test equipment.

• In the later phases of the project, the focus will move towards integration testing, electrical characterization testing, design verification testing and execution and validation of test systems. In general, you will interact closely with design partners and manufacturing contractors.

• In the end, you will transfer test equipment and methods from development to the production environment of the manufacturing contractors.

 

Your responsibilities

 

• Leading risk burn-down projects by setting up, prototyping and testing concept systems;

• Development and validation of test systems for electrical testing;

• Definition and validation of test cases and test plans for electrical tests for design verification;

• Characterization testing of electronics subsystems and full system;

• Working with the Go-2 team to solve problems and identify improvements in electronics subsystems and full system;

• Design and develop design verification test tooling (in co-operation with partners);

• Design and develop manufacturing test tooling (in co-operation with partners);

 

Your profile

 

You have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in, electronics, biomedical or equivalent engineering and you have relevant industry experience, preferably with active implantable medical devices.

• You are a generalist, with extensive experience in design processes and testing of (medical device) electronics;

• You are an experienced LabView developer, from development of low-level interface drivers to creation of functional level automated tests;

• You have solid electronics design and system testing experience within a controlled process;

• You have a system thinking attitude, can identify areas of potential improvement and develop plans to address these;

• You are a high energy, self-motivated, pro-active individual able to work in a diverse team within a startup company;

• You are fluent in English. This is our company language. Mastering of French and/or Dutch language is appreciated.

 

Senior Embedded Software Engineer

 

Candidate Challenge

 

• You will work on the specification, design and realization of embedded and real-time software that will be part of our, partly implantable, spinal cord stimulation system (Class III Medical Device.) Potential topics are:

o Software implementation of data communication between implantable (IPG) and body worm systems;

o Implantable Pulse Generator firmware, starting with feasibility units and prototypes of system, expanding towards External pulse generator system. Interaction/cooperation with IPG design house/manufacturer.

o Real-time control firmware for body worm Motion Controller (closed loop control system and commutation hub). Communication via BLE and propriety protocols.

• You are experienced in programming software that operates in, and interfaces directly with a hardware environment with limited resources (memory, processor speed, power consumption, safety, encryption…).

• At least 7 years’ experience in C and C++ in professional embedded product environments, version control, test automation, continuous integration and unit testing.

• The software development shall be done according IEC/EN 62304. Experience with this standard or with software development in the medical domain is highly appreciated. Other regulated environments (like automotive) is also appreciated.

• You are familiar with wireless communication protocols like Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) and reliability challenges that come with these protocols.

 

Candidate Responsibilities

 

• You will work together with our architects in making and documenting design choices. You will work in a multidisciplinary engineering team (Minimal hands-on knowledge of lab equipment is a pre).

• You will, setup and maintain a development environment for embedded software and in compliance with IEC/EN 62304.

 

Candidate Profile

 

• You have a bachelor or master in electronics or software engineering with proven substantial experience in software development and embedded systems.

• You have a systems-thinking attitude, can identify areas of potential improvement and develop plans to address these.

• You are a high-energy, self-motivated, pro-active individual able to work in a diverse team within a startup company.

• You are fluent in English. This is our company language.

Mastering of French and/or Dutch language is highly appreciated.

 

 

 

Senior / Principal Electronics Engineer

 

Candidate challenge

 

You will be part of the Go-2 project team in Eindhoven that designs, develops and implements a class III implantable medical device for electrical spinal cord stimulation with in- and on-body parts, featuring a closed loop control system.

The type of work will vary throughout the phases of the project.
