Lead Software Developer
We are looking for an outstanding developer to play a key role in creating a new surgical robot. The company is Vancouver based, securely financed, and tightly focused. Our leadership team is experienced, and the engineering team is diverse and talented. We aim to have fun doing great work that will make a real difference.
Our goal is to produce a 2nd gen surgical robot that uses 3D medical images to guide computer-controlled precision needle insertion, implementing minimally invasive clinical procedures such as cancer treatment.
Medical Device Software Lead
As part of the senior design team, you will critically influence the core product design and development. This is a role with broad scope and responsibility, and corresponding impact.
This is a technical lead role. You will be responsible for the software architecture for the surgical robot and work closely with other disciplines to define the overall system design. You will have a hands-on role in subsystem implementation, and in leading and mentoring the small team responsible for implementing, verifying, and validating key system elements including medical image processing, communications, user guidance, and robot control. Working closely with the rest of the design team you will deliver a well-integrated product with robust performance in a safety-critical medical device.
We are looking for a good communicator and humble team player, someone who will be a key colleague in a talented development team. You will have the opportunity to teach as well as to learn in a multidisciplinary hardware & software team.
It would be great if you have been shipping medical device products for many years, but shipping other products is good experience also, particularly in mixed hardware/software domains, perhaps with regulatory oversight. You will probably fit best into our team if you really want to make a difference in healthcare.
You may have a bachelor’s or graduate degree in a related field and have significant experience with some of the following: medical image processing, controls systems, hospital IT, computer vision, machine learning, robotics.
- Have experience in medical device development (i.e., you are familiar with ISO 13485, IEC 62304, ISO 14971), and have shipped products with FDA approval to market.
- Have shipped multiple products with software hardware integration.
- Have functioned as a technical lead.
- Are a systems-level thinker.
- Are legally entitled to work in Canada.
Compensation will be consistent with our expectation that we need the best to succeed, and for key early hires will include stock options. A relocation package is available if you will be moving to Vancouver from elsewhere.
