HAYS - Lund

Mechanical Engineer with Experience from Medical Industry

Hays Specialist Recruitment is now looking to recruit a Mechanical Engineer with previous experience within the Medical Devices industry for a client in Lund.

Are you a mechanical engineer with previous experience within the area of medical devices and are looking for a creative and challenging job opportunity? If yes, then the currently open position at Syntach AB is a perfect match. At Syntach AB you will have the unique opportunity to develop the mechanical parts in innovative products for treatment of heart failure patients. The medical products will not only increase the patient survival rate and drastically improve their quality of life, but will also lower the overall healthcare costs.

About the Company:
Syntach AB is based in Lund, Sweden, and was founded as an innovative start-up company in 2012 and has since then grown considerably. Currently there are twelve employees based in Lund, as well as several consultants all over Europe and a handful of subcontractors in Europe and US, working for Syntach AB. Several universities all over the world have a close collaboration with Syntach AB, especially the Department of Clinical Physiology at Lund University. Thus, even though Syntach AB is a small organization, the company has a global thinking and an active network all over the world.

Syntach AB is currently developing two different products for treatment of heart failure patients. The main product has a truly novel approach for cardiac support and is based on human physiology and new state of the art research. The second product is a minimally invasive spin-off product for the treatment of mitral valve regurgitation in heart failure patients. At Syntach AB you will be offered the possibility to work with the mechanical parts in both products and to be part of a highly educated, creative, and flexible team with high ambitions.

Work Tasks:
In the role as mechanical engineer/designer you will work with mechanical development and design of the two innovative heart implant products. The work consists of an iterative refinement of the mechanical design, where you will be closely involved in all the different steps in the process. The steps may consist of drafting an initial idea followed by design, development, construction, prototyping, and testing, which then are repeated over and over again until the final requirements are fulfilled. The work will involve the design and development of fine mechanics in moving parts, as well as the design and development of sealed enclosures. All design work is done in 3D CAD, e.g. with SolidWorks, and involves both independent work and close collaboration with the rest of the team. Other work tasks include assisting with expertise regarding the purchase of consulting services and participate in the evaluation of suitable manufactures of mechanical components.

Education, Experience, Personal Characteristics, and other Requirements:
M.Sc. or B.Sc. degree in relevant engineering discipline.
Minimum 5 years previous experience in the medical device industry with responsibility for mechanical design.
Great knowledge of design of fine mechanical details.
Very good experience and knowledge of SolidWorks or similar 3D CAD programs.
Good verbal and written communication skills in English.
Previous experience in the AIMD area.
Knowledge of electronics and software working together with mechanics (meriting).

The employment is challenging and requires creativity and “out-off-the-box-thinking” in order to develop innovative ideas. Even though the position requires an open way of working, as always in medical technology, it also requires a precise structure and a meticulous documentation. Great interest in medical technology and mechanical engineering, especially fine mechanics, are other requirements suitable for the position.

To focus on solutions rather than on problems, and a desire to develop and challenge ones knowledge, are personal characteristics that would fit into the work environment. Other personal characteristics suitable for the employment are to obtain motivation from working with competent colleagues, willingness to contribute with technical expertise, and openness to share thoughts and ideas. #899086
