  • Liaise with certified test labs (e.g., CSA, TUV) to manage external verification testing.
  • Perform statistical analysis on test data to verify desired confidence and performance levels.
  • Generate and release design verification reports for internal and external testing.
  • Organize and present adequacy reviews on design verification deliverables.
  • Maintain competency in applicable standards: IEC 60601-1, IEC 62304.
  • Implement exploratory testing techniques to provide early feedback during the design and development process.
  • Participate in the assessment of potential hazards and devise appropriate tests to verify mitigation of identified risks.
  • Assist with user acceptance testing with representative users and clinical evaluators.
  • Report and track product defects accurately, verify bug fixes, and ensure that other areas of product functionality are not compromised.
  • Work closely with the service team to investigate and resolve customer issues.
  • Manage test equipment to comply with calibration requirements and perform inspection and maintenance to ensure test equipment are in good working condition.

Required skills:

  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering (preferred: electrical, mechatronics, mechanical, or biomedical) or equivalent professional experience.
  • 3+ years of test engineering experience, ideally in a team working on new product development.
  • Strong programming and debugging skills in Python.
  • C/C++ and embedded programming skills with systems such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
  • Experience using statistical techniques.
  • Hands-on expertise with electrical test and measurement equipment like oscilloscopes, multimeters, or signal generators.
  • Hands-on experience with electromechanical systems and root cause analysis.
  • Hands-on experience with SolidWorks and and 3D printing/basic machining.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • Attention to detail.
  • Passion for end-to-end testing of software as well as hardware systems.

Nice to have:

  • Experience in medical devices (preferred) or other highly regulated environment.
