About The Role

Working within our multidisciplinary teams on major software product development projects, you will be responsible for ensuring these comply with the highest quality and regulatory standards. Our software developments target both physical devices and “digital” (web, PC and mobile) applications, often in multi-disciplinary environments.

You will ideally have an excellent understanding of the Software as a Medical Device development process as well as direct past experience of writing product software; we find that this unique perspective will enable a deep appreciation of the needs of our software teams.

A fantastic time to join the team, you will have numerous projects to get stuck into and immediately add value. This role will suit an ambitious individual who is looking for career advancement and is keen to work with both ground-breaking new products from first concept and pre-existing products with significant past regulatory complexity. Positive, professional, and confident you will have the ability to attend client meetings and lead projects in the future.
