Contractor Role & Responsibilities for
PRODUCT ENGINEER 1 (Systems Engineering in New Product Development)
The Siemens Healthineers Lab Diagnostics Systems Engineering organization is focused on the development of automated medical devices for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) working with infectious diseases, oncology, cardiac markers, fertility testing, thyroid function, clinical chemistries and other clinical applications. From an engineering standpoint these medical devices rely on precision mechatronics, robotics, fluid delivery systems and thermal controls to allow for the accurate and precise reporting of patient assay results.
The Systems Engineering team is responsible for the integration of medical device subsystems into automated lab diagnostics instruments, design space investigation and performance characterization of instrument subsystems and systems, and verification of immunoassay, clinical chemistry and sample handling systems for all new lab diagnostic development projects.
The Product Engineer 1 position is open at our Tarrytown, NY site with travel (up to 20%) to our other two sites in Newark, Delaware and Flanders, New Jersey.
The position reports to the Director of Systems Engineering within the Design Engineering function of the Global Engineering Organization (GEO).
Responsibilities of Product Engineer 1: With direction from Senior and Staff Systems Engineers, the Product Engineer 1 works closely with cross-functional design team members to ensure that the full understanding of subsystem/system functionality and performance is developed Supports the development of systems design concepts to meet clinical chemistry and immunoassay performance requirements With a strong learning mindset, the Product Engineer 1 grows her/his knowledge of the interaction between different elements of design and develops engineering skills to weigh merits of various design concepts against each other With guidance from Senior Systems Engineers, the Product Engineer 1 executes experiments to study design feasibility and identify & characterize critical design parameters and their boundaries Analyzes system & assay performance test data and supports the establishment of acceptance criteria Writes data-driven technical summaries and test reports Assures compliance to all verification and integration quality procedures and policies of product development Collaborates with all Design and Commercial Product Engineering teams Demonstrate Systems Engineering best practices and follows procedures in:
