Experienced medical device engineer
You have knowledge of developing medical devices, and you are able to translate user-needs into mechanical solutions. You have solid experience with plastic and mechanical construction.

You hold a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering, medical technology, material science or similar.
As a person you are curious, highly motivated and flexible. You have great interpersonal skills and have a sense of occasion, which makes you thrive in global teams.

You work in a structured and proactive way, but you are flexible and able to “think outside the box”.
