  • Experience of verifying complex electromechanical systems in a regulated environment
  • Experience of creating test protocols from system and sub-system level requirements (core and derived)
  • Experience of creating detailed technical reports that meet regulatory standards
  • Experience of defining and creating system test solutions incorporating software, electronics and mechanics
  • Experience of scripting in Python
  • Exposure to Device Risk Management
  • Experience of leading small technical teams
  • A degree (at least 2.1) in Engineering, Physics or other technical discipline

In addition, any experience of the following would be advantageous:
