Systems Engineer – Asia product launch

Systems Engineer – Asia product launch

We are looking for a Systems Engineer who can help us to extend the market reach of our advanced surgical robotic systems. You will work with multi-disciplinary teams to adapt the capabilities of our systems to meet the needs of an expanding base of international users and to meet the demands of new markets (e.g. China). To do this you will need to be able to rapidly assimilate information from a variety of technical, operational, clinical and regulatory sources and devise detailed technical solutions and documentation that support mar-ket entry and collaborative working with our international partners and teams.

Why join us?

CMR is one of the UK’s most exciting companies to be joining right now.  The scale of our ambition to build a world-class medical devices company in Cambridge is matched only by the breathtaking 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 and 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.


Working within a multi-disciplinary team we are looking for someone who can:

  • Analyse complex (sometimes conflicting) needs and synthesise these into concise, realisable, testable, traceable and pragmatic requirements
  • Write and put in place technical document sets that clearly define the product including requirement, design, verification/validation and manufacturing processes
  • Re-architecting and re-partitioning systems to meet local needs
  • Apply an understanding of the whole system to develop risk management arguments and document these using appropriate tools (e.g. FMEA, Hazard Analysis etc.)
  • Support product entry into new markets by working in partnership with our international teams including overseas on-site development and support
  • Work with our engineering, manufacturing and service/support teams to ensure that designs and documentation are optimised for the intended deployment environment
  • Work at all stages of the design cycle from requirements capture through to transfer to manufacture and regulatory submission

We are a high growth company and as such roles change and evolve. We would generally expect you to be willing to turn your hand to anything within the systems engineering remit that helps the team deliver its objectives.

About you

You will be great at working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, bringing your strong work ethic and proven desire to deliver high quality results. You will have a good degree in engineering, physics or a related discipline and a track record of applying your systems engineering skills in a product or systems development environment.

A natural communicator hopefully goes without saying, but in addition we’d like you to have:

  • A good understanding of multi-disciplinary product design and development processes including requirements capture, design for manufacture and test, design verification, manufacturing processes, change control and risk analysis methods such as FMEAs
  • Excellent written skills with the ability to generate accurate yet concise technical documents
  • An analytical approach with the ability to quickly grasp complex systems
  • Excellent attention to detail with the ability to maintain consistency across large design/document sets while retaining a creative approach to problem solving
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to liaise and communicate easily with colleagues from a variety of engineering, clinical and scientific backgrounds
  • Experience of working within a regulated development environment, ideally in the medical sector or another regulated industry such as automotive, aerospace or industrial control
  • Willingness to travel internationally (e.g. China) for periods of up to a few weeks to support product entering a new territory

It would be great if you also had:

  • Experience of medical device development processes and standards
  • Experience of compliance/standards engineering (e.g. electrical safety, EMC etc.)
  • Experience of product transfer to manufacture
  • Working knowledge of scripting software (Python)
  • Knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and/or experience of working in China
  • a genuine desire to help and support team members so that we can all achieve our best

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 legendary 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.

Interested? We’d love to hear from you!
