Join us today and make a difference in people's lives!

We are seeking Systems Engineers who want to help define, architect, design and validate our next-generation Neuromodulation products. Using your excellent systems engineering and communication skills, we will be looking to you to not only identify customer needs but to also create and present the material that allows cross-functional teams to continue to develop products that stratify those needs.

As our Systems Engineer, you will be a technical leader, leading the system engineering projects on new and existing product development. In this role, most of your time will be spent using your knowledge and experience of User-Centered Design to derive user needs and working cross-functionally to allocate these to appropriate subsystems.

Here is some year one stuff to think about:

  • Drive the definition of future LivaNova products by engaging with clinicians, patients, caregivers to establish key technical strategic, and tactical plans including the definition of user needs, system and subsystem requirements for next-generation product (wireless implantable systems, mobile applications, patient devices, Big Data, etc.)

  • Participate in cross-functional groups that could include Advanced Technology, Research, Marketing, Clinical Engineering, Quality, Advanced Manufacturing Engineering, and Manufacturing.

  • Drive the execution of contextual observations, in-depth interviews, peer-group interviews, journey mapping, development of use cases, future scenarios, wireframe diagrams, sequence diagrams and use the results to develop concepts and prototypes of future products and validate against user needs.

  • Utilize primary standards for the medical device business such as 13485, 14971, 60601-1 and 45502-1, 62304 for software, etc. that drive the design activities.

We are operating on aggressive timelines but also know when to break and have some fun. LivaNova is producing world-class products for the Medical Device Implantable Market, and we will need you to help change the lives of our patients. You must have systems engineering experience including user needs and systems requirements definition, understanding of full product development lifecycle, and systems validation. Be ready to have examples of where you have performed these activities and explanations of the methods used.

Minimum Qualifications

  • 4-year technical degree in systems engineering or another technical discipline such as Electrical or Software Engineering - preferably a Master's degree.

  • Solid understanding and experience developing products employing User-Centered Design methodologies and processes.

  • Demonstrated past performance in leading engineers in the development of products from a systems perspective in a highly regulated industry.

  • Broad skills in working with embedded systems especially with electrical and software disciplines.

  • Excellent communication skills to work on and lead cross-functional teams to develop new or modify existing systems.

The Systems Engineering team seeks forward-thinking people who are passionate about delivering a quality product and enjoy working closely with business partners on both strategic and tactical challenges; if this sounds like you, please apply today!
