Careers That Change Lives

As a member of the Medtronic Diabetes - Continuous Glucose Monitoring Sensor R&D team, this Senior Biomedical Engineer will assist in development of biosensing technologies and manufacturing with emphasis on glucose sensing. The Senior Engineer will work independently to plan experiments, execute, and analyze research data to assist in driving development efforts. The individual will interface with other engineering, regulatory, quality, clinical and marketing teams over the evolution of associated programs.

A Day in the Life

The Senior Biomedical Engineer will provide technical leadership through competencies in sensing devices and analysis, This individual will conduct rigorous experimentation and generate quality results, providing development guidance and providing decisions to advance sensor programs. The focus will be on integrating various sensing components and technologies to satisfy program deliverables and requirements through scientific data. There will be strong emphasis on Design for Reliability and Manufacturability (DRM) principles, problem solving methodologies (DMAIC), analytical data methodologies, and process capability analysis. The individual is expected to interpret sensor signal data at various test collection stages (bench top, animal, clinical), develop insights, and provide scientific recommendations on paths forward.

This individual will be expected to perform independently and is responsible for experimental & process design, data analysis, collaborating within and across functions, and writing technical documentation. There will be occasions when communication to upper management is required through presentations and reports, and the individual must have the ability to effectively convey technical updates to internal and external stakeholders (vendors, sterilization sites, manufacturing, etc.).

Specific Responsibilities include:

  • Contributing member within multidisciplinary teams to support the development of next generation subcutaneous biosensors with emphasis on glucose sensing
  • Analysis of new sensing modalities, processes, and system integration
  • Apply & instill Best-Known-Methods for robust characterization of various sensor designs
  • Conduct design of experiments (DOE) to model the statistically significant critical to quality (CTQ) sensor performance output variability and main effects with respect to process and environmental inputs
  • Apply and interpret characterization DOE models to establish optimal material and process input set points with respect to sensor in-vivo performance
  • Application of data analysis and statistical methodologies to generate insights on sensor performance, drive experiment design and project next steps
  • Assume responsibility as subject matter expert to represent organization as primary contact for specific projects and initiatives
  • Utilize technical skills associated with Six Sigma, Lean, DRM/DFSS and other appropriate continuous improvement techniques
  • Ensure execution of detailed engineering analyses & documentation to support design development and support process transfer
  • Work with other engineers and technicians to execute experimental designs.

Must Have: Minimum Requirements

To be considered for this role, please ensure the minimum requirements are evident on your resume.
