Would you like the chance to truly make your test method development experience count and work in one of the best performing medical device companies in the world?
In this position, you will play a key role in ensuring that we make the right product design choices. Moreover, you will get to set the direction for test method development in our projects and help build a new and important team from the ground up.

“You’ll be part of bringing new devices to market by ensuring that we have the right tests in place. This entails being part of the development process from the very early stages and up until production launch,” explains Head of Test Engineering Henrik Olsen.

Become part of our new Test Engineering team 
Joining us at our HQ in Humlebæk, Denmark, you will become part of a newly established and still growing team of 4. We are an integral part of Test & Characterisation within R&D where we lead the design and documentation of test methods.

“You can look forward to becoming part of a very supportive environment where we share the occasional joke and generally know each other really well.” – Henrik

From early-stage concepts to final product 
As a senior test engineer, you will become responsible for larger development projects in which you will take charge of the test method strategy, test method development as well as test method documentation. 

Making use of your already extensive experience, you will provide guidance for your team and lead by example. Moreover, we expect you to take an active role in defining the processes within the team.

Your key tasks include:

  • Developing and documenting test methods and – if needed – transferring the methods and related test equipment to our pilot or manufacturing sites across the world

  • Assisting in the ongoing maintenance of test methods implemented in our production
  • Assisting in troubleshooting of laboratory equipment and purchasing new equipment
  • Supporting the training of colleagues in test methods and procedures
  • Taking responsibility for ongoing updates of our worldwide procedures and instructions to ensure that we work in compliance with current regulations

Experience with test method development and design 
You are known for your precision and ability to always meet a deadline. Also, you thrive in a project-based environment with many concurrent tasks. As a team player, you master the art of cross-functional collaboration. Your style of communication is unmistakably to the point, and you know how to navigate a diverse stakeholder landscape.

Moreover you:

  • Hold a degree in engineering, e.g. within mechanics, physics, chemistry, pharmacy or a similar discipline
  • Have experience with test method development and design from the medical or MedTech industry 
  • Have experience with CAD
  • Bring knowledge of statistics and statistical software related to test method validation (e.g.
