Primary Function of the Position


As a Staff System ME, you must utilize creativity and sound technical judgment as the architect of new medical capital equipment products, achieving an advanced level of technology, design, and integration for robotic-surgical components. You will ideate and develop architectural interfaces for various subsystems, including but not limited to structures and body parts, electro-mechanical packaging, sensors and actuators, manipulators, and physical user interfaces. You will spearhead high-complexity design activities, to introduce novel features and drastic performance improvements in Surgical Systems. You will understand and address multi-domain physics challenges involved in design optimization, and use analytical, simulation and experimental tools to drive development. You will be responsible for high-maturity design reviews, including multiple levels of product owners, stakeholders, and cross-functional teams. As a lead design engineer, you will interface with suppliers and manufacturing to build high-quality hardware prototypes and productize new designs. You will be trusted to allocate your time and efforts to make sound decisions, when faced with time constraints and ambiguous or incomplete information.





Key Roles & Responsibilities





  • Developing system mechanical assemblies, with careful consideration for key functions and safety.



  • Working within multi-disciplinary teams to define requirements for new robotic surgical products.



  • Producing and iterating full-scale functional prototypes in a fast-paced New Product Design environment.



  • Creating and managing design failure-modes analysis and associated verification testing.



  • Collaborating with Product Owners for product validation activities and mission-critical risk-assessment.



  • Defining product's performances and specifications, with an eye to final product delivery.



  • Generating and owning models for assemblies, components, and drawings, in a government regulated environment.
