Job: Engineering
Primary Location: United States-Connecticut-Orange
Schedule: Full-time
Requisition ID: 193782


Joining Intuitive Surgical means joining a team dedicated to using technology to benefit patients by improving surgical efficacy and decreasing surgical invasiveness, with patient safety as our highest priority.

Job Description:

Systems Analysts (Robotic Algorithms and Control Engineers) at Intuitive Surgical strive to create the safest and highest quality robotic system for minimally invasive surgery though rigorous and robust technical analysis. This Systems Analyst position is responsible for algorithms and controls required to support the development and production of new instruments for the daVinci Surgical System. Required skills include knowledge of control systems, robot kinematics, and a solid understanding of mechanical systems.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop and own the tele-operated motion performance of robotic surgical instruments. Ensuring motion fidelity will involve:
    o working closely with the clinical development team to understand performance requirements o working closely with the mechanical design team to optimize the mechanism for motion fidelity o using analysis and experimentation to develop a deep understanding of the behavior and limitations of the instrument mechanism o modifying and tuning the algorithms to optimize motion fidelity
  • Implement features and algorithms to support new instruments, such as extending a cutter, or forming staples.
  • Perform the risk analysis and implementation of safety algorithms. This includes documentation of risks, requirements, and test protocols in order to support requests for approval by regulatory agencies such as the FDA.
  • Collaborate with the manufacturing team to develop automated fixtures for calibrating, testing, and aiding assembly of the instrument. Additionally, you will determine manufacturing test specifications that will ensure instrument performance.
  • Lead by having a breadth of technical knowledge that enables a top-level view of the entire project. Using this perspective, you will act as an interface between the various technical specialties. You are expected to take ownership of issues that cross disciplinary boundaries, and use your broad skillset to ensure the success of the project. Qualifications

    Skill/Job Requirements:

  • PhD (preferred) or MS in robotics-related field.
  • Demonstrate intuitive understanding of mechanical phenomena with ability to do rigorous analysis.
  • C/C++ and Matlab programming skills, as well as hardware, software, and mechanism integration skills. Knowledge of Python is a plus.
  • Knowledge of classical and modern servo control systems.
  • Knowledge of serial-arm robot kinematics.
  • Knowledge of statistics is a plus.
  • Knowledge of electrical and mechanical design principles and CAD tools is a plus.
  • Demonstrate excellent communication skills both written and verbal.
  • Have the ability to work independently and the determination to solve challenging problems.
