Nature of Role: Reporting to the Head of Systems Engineering, the Senior Systems Engineer is responsible for various systems engineering functions within multiple projects.


The Senior System Engineer’s main objectives are to ensure proper translation of user, caregiver and a variety of additional stakeholders’ needs into clearly defined, verifiable design inputs. The engineer collaborates with project teams to define system solutions, architectures (design outputs) and interface requirements between various subsystems to adequately meet the design inputs.


Additional activities include determining the essential requirements necessary to drive initial concept development, leading systems architecture concept development sessions, and creating ratings criteria for concept ranking, prioritizing the development strategy and acceptance of early architectural concepts. The systems engineer acts as the hub of the product development team by engaging all engineering disciplines (including but not limited to Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Software Engineering architects) to organize system architectures and product development activities. Parallel activities will include translating the early research findings and regulatory requirements into functional requirements with documented rationales, intended to be measurable and verifiable or validated at later stages. Late stage activities include advising on formal verification plans in collaboration with Design Assurance Engineers for risk assessments and assisting with test method development. The role will also require incorporation of directly related standards and regulatory requirements. Additionally, this role will require the individuals to demonstrate tactical planning, strategy and execution proficiency for programs.

  • Participate in continuous improvement efforts related to systems engineering processes
  • Assist the Head of Systems Engineering with staff training on a periodic basis and teams on an as needed basis


An individual holding a bachelor’s degree in a related field, coupled with 5-8+ years of experience within the product development industry.
