Development Engineer, Medical Device

Product Development in Medical Device is probably the most exciting place that an engineer can work but when combined with a start-up you’re at excitement’s pinnacle.  In a start-up, you touch every piece of the business adding to your résumé in ways that no other business offers you the chance to do.  In a start-up, you’re not pigeonholed into a single responsibility leaving you to wonder exactly what your efforts did to contribute to the product’s success or failure. 

To the contrary, in this job, you’ll see the impact of your efforts all day, every day.  In this job, today’s efforts will be the tomorrow’s legacy.  In this job you’ll go home at night with a smile on a very tired face because you’ve worked hard but also had a significantly positive impact of patients’ lives. 

Not afraid of your skills being tested every day?  Not afraid of high velocity teams where change is a mantra?  Not afraid of working in a start-up?  We’ve got a position you want to hear more about.
