Then you could be the perfect match for our Device Development team in Novo Nordisk.
About the department
Device R&D, located in Hillerød, is an area within our Global R&D organisation responsible for development, design, functionality and regulatory approval of medical devices. We have a long and outstanding track-record of developing the best, most innovative and widely-used drug delivery devices in the world. The Device Development team is a high performing team, and our aim is to develop innovative devices that add value to patients and Novo Nordisk. The team is an interdisciplinary group of hardware, software and mechanical engineers all aiming to advance the care of people living with chronical diseases. We are busy with bringing new products to the market and therefore, we are looking for new skilled colleagues to join our team.
As our new Senior R&D Engineer, your primary responsibility will be to drive and coordinate the development of the system design for our range of connected medical devices. You will play a key role in setting the direction for the development process and certify that it is aligned with medical device requirements while ensuring integration of other design inputs in the process. Your main tasks include ownership of requirement engineering, evaluation of regulatory requirements, safety risk analysis, problem solving, verification and validation. We expect you to demonstrate a high subject matter expertise and be able to solve issues and create improvements in methods, techniques and approaches within system design – all to help identify best practices and drive high quality outcomes.
You will be working in close collaboration with your team members, and you will be considered a key contributor in driving team performance towards great results by inspiring your colleagues and be a role model with high level of professional passion.
As a number of our development and production activities are outsourced, you will work in close collaboration with our external partners.
The position will give you great opportunities for professional development both towards managerial roles or specialist roles depending on your motivation and ambition.
You hold a technical or scientific master’s degree or above, and you have more than five years of experience working with the development of highly regulated products.
