At Ambu we have set our journey towards transforming the endoscopic practice in hospitals to prevent cross contamination of a patient through the use of single use endoscopes.
In this engaging position, you will be an active contributor to Ambu’s success within our endoscope’s development. We strive to continue being the world leader in developing and manufacturing single use cameras for medical endoscopes. You will be a part of a dedicated cross discipline team working to further develop future camera technologies within single use endoscopy. Specifically, within the cutting-edge development of new miniature cameras.
In order to accomplish this goal, extensive knowledge of technologies combined with collaboration of several partners inside and outside the company is necessary. Additionally, we must integrate several different science disciplines and act as knowledge aggregators and distributors within the company while pursuing the innovation opportunities ahead.
You will be part of a dynamic innovation culture characterized by a strong team spirit. Our Global Innovation team consists of 90 people located at our headquarters in Ballerup, Denmark. You will join the Technology Research & Image Processing team that consist of four high skilled and international professionals.
Develop new mechanical technology and solutions for miniature cameras
Your role will be to invent, develop, mature and lead technology development of mechanical solutions for miniature cameras aimed to be easily integrated into product development.
Your main responsibilities include:
- Develop, design and engineer new mechanical solutions for miniature cameras.
- To lead technology development tasks at external partners towards tangible solutions that can be used in the later product development projects.
- Identify user needs of new application areas and translate them into tangible solutions.
- Develop concepts/solutions into tangible prototypes for test and documentation.
- Provide mechanical assistance to the product development teams during the development phases
- Interact and collaborate with both external and internal partners in a trusting and open manner.
Your contact base will be broad, as you will work with Ambu’s global organisation, all departments involved in product development projects and externally with users, knowledge centers and suppliers.
Mechanical engineering with experience in product development of medical devices
Ideally, you hold an educational background within mechanical engineering or similar and have worked with leading development tasks. You have an intuitive understanding of how to collaborate with people and organisations that are not directly in your team. You have at least 5 years’ experience developing medical devices, and you have a deep understanding of mechanical design. You are able to translate user-needs into mechanical solutions and you have solid experience with plastic and mechanical construction. You thrive in the early part of development where exploration is dominant, and uncertainty is high and continuously seek to acquire 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 complete sense of the situation, allowing you to succeed in global teams.
