A Day in the Life
The Systems Engineer will be a member of the R&D engineering team working in the development and support of MITG respiratory and patient monitoring products. Systems Engineers are expected to work with other cross-functional members of the engineering staff to provide technical systems level expertise and solutions to engineering problems. The Systems Engineer will work with various department function leads and project engineers in establishing high level product requirements and systems architecture, and will collaborate with the various engineering disciplines in creating mechanical and electrical hardware designs, firmware designs, project schedules, test plans, and other project documentation from the concept phase through successful product launch.
You will participates as a member of systems project or sub-project team(s) in developing product systems architectures. May act as technical lead on assigned programs.
You will works with program core team members including Quality and Regulatory to ensure conformance to established design development processes and procedures.
You will works with the various engineering disciplines to translate market-driven requirements into technical specifications, and ultimately flow them down into lower level hardware and firmware requirements documents.
You will leads the requirements development, systems level architecture design and external communications/connectivity interface designs by collaborating with cross-functional disciplines within and outside R&D.
You will works with program managers to create and manage project schedules. Leads and facilitates architectural and design decisions to ensure on-time delivery of projects. Escalates resource and technical issues in a timely fashion to R&D leadership.
You will be responsible for ensuring 100% requirement to Verification/Validation test plan coverage on programs.
You will leads FMEA discussions at all levels to ensure product quality and reliability.
You will leads functional process and tool improvement initiatives by being early adopter of ideas on projects without impacting project schedules.
