  • Supporting the transfer of established designs from development to production:
    • Developing pilot processes for new product designs and design changes
    • Providing DfX input to the product design, supply chain and servicing processes
    • Generating process design documentation, work instructions and specifications
  • Establishing appropriate in-process Inspection and measurement methods
  • Assisting in the validation of equipment, process and inspection methods
  • Compiling and reviewing Design History Records produced by the manufacturing team
  • Monitoring process performance ensuring a consistent output is achieved:
    •  Analysing data to determine process stability
    • Raising non-conformance reports and carrying out root cause analysis on non-conforming processes or components in line with the defined CAPA process
  • Carrying out risk management activities such as Health and Safety Risk assessments and Process FMEA including the implementation and communication of mitigation actions.
  • Assisting with stock control
  • Maintaining the MRP system and contributing to its development.

About you

We’d expect you to have a good (first or upper second) relevant degree from a top university. In addition, you’ll have at least two years of experience from a relevant industry. Naturally you’ll also be a great team player with a strong work ethic and a demonstrable determination to produce high quality results.

We’re also looking for you to have experience in some or all of the below:

  • Excellent problem-solving skills with the ability to guide technicians in root cause investigation and troubleshooting of individual builds
  • Working in medical devices industry, particularly ISO13485 and/or FDA CFR21 Part 820 in line with Good Manufacturing Practice
  • Practical design and assembly of complex electro-mechanical products, jigs and tooling
  • First article inspection of mechanical components, including documentation 
  • Interpretation of technical drawings and generation of detailed assembly and test protocol documentation 
  • The management of calibration and maintenance of test and measurement equipment
  • The requirements of change control and documentation control 
  • Experience working within new or established production environments  
  • Production management activities – tool storage and management, ordering and specifying of consumables
  • CAD – mechanical design experience in general (SolidWorks preferred)
  • A basic understanding of electro-mechanical interactions
  • Experience with component and assembly drawings, including GD&T
  • Managing small, well defined projects to budget and timelines

The package 

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package (including pension, cycle-to-work scheme, life assurance, and medical insurance – as well as our now famous monthly company BBQs). On top of that, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork, and where fun is just as valued as our commitment to make surgery better for millions of people.

Why join us? 

CMR Surgical is developing a next-generation robotic system for universal minimal access surgery. The Versius system comprises a surgeon console, modular light-weight robotic arms and a range of wristed 5 mm instruments. The system uses state-of-the-art 3D high-definition imagery and significantly enhanced flexibility. In short, we’re creating something truly amazing designed to improve the lives of people around the globe; it’s a vision that excites us and hopefully will excite you.

Versius overcomes obstacles to widespread adoption of robotic minimal access surgery, namely robot size, instrument size, versatility, port placement, cost and ease of use, allowing the system to be highly utilised and ultimately cost-comparable to manual laparoscopic surgery.

The Company was formed in 2014 and has its headquarters in Cambridge, United Kingdom. We’re privately owned and enjoy strong financial backing.
