Do you know how to translate user needs into technical requirements and solution spaces? Do you want to join the mission of defining architectural platforms to create superb products?
Join the R&D organisation 
At our HQ in Humlebæk, you join our Systems Engineering & Embedded Solutions team within R&D department that belongs to Innovation Unit. Here you will play an important role in our efforts to work with the development of new products and platforms. 


At Innovation Unit we are responsible for setting the direction for the product development across the organization and doing so we help make a difference in the lives of people with intimate health care needs. Joining our dynamic department, you can look forward to becoming part of a great work environment where you will work alongside knowledgeable programme and project managers. 


“We take our product development to the next level by applying Systems Engineering and Architectural design to new projects – especially those with Embedded elements included.” says Senior Director, Systems Engineering & Embedded Solutions, Erkki Juntunen.


Define the architecture
As Systems Architect, you will be part of the project team gathering the needs from stakeholders and turning those to potential solution spaces and further to architectural design. You will collaborate closely to various R&D and Innovation functions, external development partners, as well as your commercial colleagues to understand the user needs before embarking to the architectural development.


You will ensure we have understood the unmet need thoroughly, and that we consider all the relevant solution spaces before deciding on the architecture for a product or a modular platform for a range of products.

In short you will:


  • Facilitate and lead the discussion to translate needs to system requirements and architecture
  • Establish system partitioning together with other architects and specialists
  • Document systems architecture and decisions on design choices 
  • Ensure sub-system architecture, developed by internal or external parties, is aligned with system-level architecture
  • Follow-up the implementation of architecture internally and with development partners, and report back to project manager

“Systems Engineering & Embedded Solutions team has now over 20 highly skilled colleagues who want to make life easier for the people with intimate healthcare needs. We are still growing and need your skills and dedication to continue our journey!” Erkki continues.


You have experience with Systems Architecture or Systems Engineering
On a personal level, you are outgoing and proactive, and you take a highly structured approach to your tasks. Teamwork comes naturally, and you understand that collaboration is the key to success in our work. 

Your solid interpersonal skills ensure that you interact easily at all levels of an organisation and towards partners. Likewise, you have got the ability to understand the user needs and translate them into technical specifications that can be easily grasped by our external partners. 

  • You have a B.Sc or a M.Sc in Engineering, Physics, Computer Science or similar
  • Experience working with complex technical R&D projects in a specialist role
  • You have solid experience working as a Systems Architect or Systems Engineer and have collaborated with external partners to a high degree
  • Knowledge of product development models and Systems Engineering disciplines
  • Experience from working within the medical device or similarly regulated industry is a strong advantage
  • Have knowledge of QA and EHS systems and requirements
  • Great communications skills and are fluent in English speech and writing
