Leading the development of new miniature cameras
Your role will be to lead early technology development activities of miniature cameras mostly done at external partners, aimed for easy integration into product development at a later stage.
Your main responsibilities are to
- lead technology development tasks together with external partners towards tangible solutions that can be used in the later product development projects
- secure that the collaborative solutions are useful and fulfil requirements
- help clarify uncertainties both internally and externally
- participate in the development, design and engineering of new mechanical solutions for miniature cameras

Mechanical engineering with experience with product development of medical devices
Ideally, you have an educational background within mechanical engineering or similar and have worked with leading development tasks, maybe as a sub-project manager. You have an intuitive understanding of how to collaborate with people and organizations that are not directly reporting to you.
You have at least five years of experience of developing medical devices, and you have deep understanding of mechanical design of small sizes. You are able to translate user needs into requirements and you have solid experience with plastic or small mechanical construction. You work well in the early part of development where exploration is dominant and uncertainty is high, and you thrive in acquiring new knowledge.
As a person you are self-motivated, committed and have a strong sense of responsibility towards your work. You are thorough and detail-oriented but at the same time you have great interpersonal skills and have a sense of the situation, which makes you thrive in global teams.
