Changing Lives for a Better World

Senior Systems Engineer

October 27, 2019

Velentium is a fast-growing medical tech firm with a great culture. We hire only the best and hardest working individuals who love to continuously learn. More than just a job, we want you to make a tangible difference. When you are working on medical devices, you will change lives!

At Velentium, we design and integrate technology for a large variety of medical devices for many different companies. These devices address many different therapies, such as sleep apnea, diabetes, pain management, acid reflux, incontinence, seizure disorders, paralysis, and many more. The variety of our work and the nature of consulting means you will get the equivalent of three years of exposure for every year you work with us. Let’s do great things together!

We are currently looking for senior systems engineers that want to help us change lives.

What Does It Take to Do This Job?

  • A fit with Velentium culture: Honor, Results, Humility, Charisma, Velocity, Ingenuity
  • Demonstrated experience that displays an ability to learn and apply new skills
  • A demonstrated ability to work alone AND in teams
  • A desire to thrive in a rapidly changing and quick-paced environment
  • An attitude of doing whatever it takes to figure out the solution to challenging engineering problems
  • A love for, and understanding of, complex medical devices and associated systems
  • Demonstrated experience in systems engineering or in software and electrical systems
  • An ability to understand user needs from a medical device perspective and translate those user needs to system specifications
  • Detailed knowledge of ISO 13485
  • Experience performing risk management
  • An understanding of requirements traceability
  • Familiarity with software and electrical development processes
  • Nice to haves: Firmware, BLE knowledge, ISO 60601 knowledge

 

What Will I Do?

  • Because we are an engineering services company and a medical device manufacturer, our work varies based on our project load.
  • The systems engineer is the technical hub of the project and evaluates the user needs to clearly define a simple and elegant solution to the project objectives.
  • The systems engineer ensures that the “big picture” of the project is kept in view and communicates the key technical requirements to the technical team. The systems engineer understands each technical requirement and how the team will achieve it.
  • Using your familiarity with the technical disciplines involved in medical device development, you will help guide the technical team in selecting the tools and components required to accomplish the project, as well as defining the implementation strategies to reduce overall project risk.
  • Your daily work may include any of the following:
    • Perform detailed analyses of existing customer designs
    • Generate system specifications and design systems to meet those specifications
    • Analyze systems and components to develop power and communication package budgets
    • Perform risk management per ISO 14971
    • Perform detailed design reviews
    • Assist with new business proposals and project change activities
    • Understand and use requirements traceability
    • NOTES: Risk mitigations “evangelize best approaches to meet customer needs and risk factors”
    • Continue to pain the big picture: forest and trees

 

Because Velentium is a consulting firm that performs design and development services for others, your communication skills (spoken and written) must be top-notch. We provide unlimited challenge, a chance to be a part of a stellar team of top performers, and intense variety that grants you a path to continuous learning.

For qualified candidates, there are opportunities for project leadership, travel (including international), and a chance to immediately contribute (you are not just a number in our small but growing firm). And, we have "big company benefits" because we compete with the biggest of tech firms for candidates like you!

If you feel you are a match - we look forward to hearing from you!

Hear First Hand from Our Team

Mamoru Kanazawa Sr. Mobile Developer
"In the fast-paced industry of medical devices, Velentium is a company where you can gain valuable experience in a vast array of projects as well as learn from and work with some of the most passionate and talented engineers in their field. Velentium not only focuses on changing the lives of patients, but its employees as well."
Chris Jensen Sr. Technical Lead

"Velentium has a collaborative and welcoming culture that is unlike any other I have experienced throughout my career. On a day to day basis, I am surrounded by and actively work with high performing individuals that are not only trustworthy, but supportive. Even more prominent is the strong ethical foundation that guides every aspect of the business and is reinforced constantly through the demonstration and celebration of our 3 core values: Honorable, Results++, and Humble Charisma."

Pamela Lim Test Technician

"I applied for a full-time summer internship at Velentium after doing a part-time internship here during the school year. I liked how my coworkers enjoy being here, how they both work hard and have fun, and how everyone is willing to answer questions and explain technological concepts. My part-time experience made me want to intern full-time so that I could have a fuller idea of what goes into medical device development, as well as understand how tech companies operate in general."

Jessica Joslin Director of Finance
"It is the culture at Velentium that makes the biggest difference to me. At Velentium, character, honesty and integrity are valued, and I contribute as a whole person not just for the job I do. We all work together as a team and that makes working here a joy."
Alberto Lin Sr. Developer

“Velentium’s QMS balances compliance with usability. Our system isn’t burdensome like many, which can feel like they get in the way of getting work done, but it isn’t too lightweight either. Beyond balance, we have a pro-quality company culture that supports collaboration on reviews, and encourages all of us to develop a risk-mitigating mindset for each project.”

Tyler Martin Jr. Cybersecurity Engineer

"Velentium has created a challenging, fun, and yet flexible work environment. As a rising cybersecurity professional, I have the unique opportunity to break and deconstruct devices/protocols in order to show how they can be designed efficiently while prioritizing security. Velentium has provided me with the opportunity to work with the latest technology, learn new engineering skills, and find elegant solutions to technical problems."
