The scale of our ambition to build a world-class medical devices company in Cambridge is matched only by the breath-taking innovation that underpins our next generation of surgical robot. We’re an award-winning company that plans to significantly disrupt the way surgery is performed for the benefit of millions of patients all around the world.

Our values are ambitious, humble, people focused, fair and responsible. If you share these values, our passion for improving lives, and have the skills to make a real difference to the way minimal access surgery is developed and delivered, then it’s a great time to join us.


Every day will be different, but some of your main responsibilities will be:

  • Assuring consistent supplier performance & assisting in the development & implementation of supplier management programmes
  • Creating or assisting in supplier risk assessments and identifying areas which are critical to quality
  • Assess suppliers either remotely or on site. Being a certified Lead Auditor (ISO-13485:2016 preferably) is an advantage
  • Monitoring supplier performance and addressing issues when they arise.

We’re a high growth company and as such roles change and evolve. We’d expect you to be willing to turn your hand to anything within the Quality remit that helps the team deliver its objectives.

The Package

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package (including non-contributory pension scheme, cycle-to-work scheme, life assurance, and our infamous monthly 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.
