A newly established team of specialists
Joining R&D at our HQ in Humlebæk, Denmark, you become part of a newly established and still growing team of test experts within our Test & Characterisation department. 


We are in charge of leading the design and documentation of our testing strategies and responsible for ensuring that those test strategies and methods are implemented at Coloplast sites around the world.

It’s a very supportive team, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to collaborate with your peers. What’s more, we own the process and are constantly working to improve it, giving you a lot of influence in your daily work,” Mikael explains.

Stepping into this hands-on role, you become one of our subject matter experts and a technical lead on testing and verification in projects. Thus, you can look forward to designing tests, analysing data and ensuring that the output from our tests meets our design requirements.

  • Setting the testing strategy and execution plan
  • Creating design verification plans, protocols and reports 
  • Acting as gatekeeper and subject matter expert for design verification 
  • Utilizing your previous experience with medical device design verification 


Though you will not be managing projects yourself, it is vital that you thrive in a project-based environment. You know how to navigate a diverse stakeholder landscape, and how to coordinate and facilitate tasks that span quality and regulatory requirements as well as multi-disciplinary technical teams.


Moreover, you:

  • Hold a degree in engineering, e.g. within mechanics, physics, chemistry, or a similar discipline
