As part of New Products Development team, your main tasks are to manage and execute design development and validation activities of intravenous container systems or individual components and to ensure the follow-up of projects within the defined project boundaries.
Essential Duties & Responsibilities
Within a project team execute design development activities on container components (geometry/material/process) by conducting appropriate studies & data analysis, editing technical documentation, supervising samples preparation & related test campaigns execution.
Provide technical leadership in the areas of release of new products/line extensions, product improvements, value improvements, changes in regulatory requirements, supplier-initiated changes, and complaint investigations.
Based on project needs, be in support to engineering activities related to component design (system requirements definition, concept selection & prototyping, product/system interface, dFMEA, functional performance evaluation, design space definition, specifications/BoM/drawings creation & issuance, specific test method development, verification studies, design transfer...)
When needed, under direction of the Technical Lead, organize and coordinate activities involving other project stakeholders (different functions, different sites) to respect overall project schedule.
Apply state-of-the-art engineering tools/methodologies/principles (sampling plan & study layout definition, data statistical analysis, mechanical design principles...) to design product components according to applicable Product Development Process and design control procedures.
Writing protocols of design engineering studies, collect data, interpret results and provide conclusions in terms of product design for "form, fit & function"
Assists Technical Lead in the preparation/presentation of project technical reviews and design reviews.
Develop a high degree of engineering knowledge in appropriate fields of competence.
Understand and rigorously adhere to Standard Operating Procedures, Work Instructions, Forms and Templates that are required in highly regulated Pharmaceutical product development process.
Master’s degree in Biomedical, Mechanical, Electro-Mechanical or Materials Engineering* Typically, 1 to 5 years of relevant engineering experience in new product development (preferably in medical devices, pharma products)
Excellent spoken, written and read English, French is a plus
First relevant experience in new product development and product design in medical products. Knowledge of PLM/PDLM methodology is a plus.
Good experience with statistical (Minitab) and Six Sigma (5 why's, fishbone diagram, DMAIC...) tools/methodologies is a plus
Good knowledge of plastic materials technology and processing (injection molding, extrusion, sealing...)
Able to formulate autonomously engineering studies (sampling plan, DoE...) of moderate complexity
Willing to develop specific technical skills and knowledge when required
Stay informed of state-of-the-art technical developments and trends in areas of technical expertise
Numerical modeling experience is a plus
Proficient in Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, MS Project.)
3D and 2D CAD software (Creo) modeling
Statistical analysis software (Minitab) is a plus
Computer-aided design & numerical simulation (ex: FEA, Moldflow, CFD, Multiphysics) is a plus
Ability to work as a collaborative team member
Proven critical thinking and ability to solve routine technical problems in a systematic way through design, testing and analysis, with minimal assistance from senior staff
Proven ability to effectively communicate technical information (written & verbal) within technical project team
Actively identify new areas for learning. Proactively create and take advantage of learning opportunities for further implementation on container development activities
