Synchron is developing a platform of brain interface technology that transmits data in and out of the brain via devices implanted inside cerebral blood vessels using minimally invasive endovascular procedures (Neuro-Intervention).
As a leader in brain-to-machine communication, Synchron is poised to create a significant impact in its industry and to meaningfully impact many peoples’ lives. Whilst the company’s technology is maturing fast (4 clinical trial participants have already benefited from the first-generation device), there is an opportunity to help shape the company’s direction and to work in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary and growing team.
We are a lean, fast-paced, passionate team pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the neurotech space to dramatically improve the quality of life of millions of people globally, and we want you to join us.
EE/Embedded SW Engineer – Hardware
The successful candidate will join the hardware team responsible for the development and testing of system components required to produce a commercial-ready Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) device. These system elements comprise of active implantable components and non-implantable elements that facilitate signal communication to everyday devices.
As a team member, this individual will contribute as part of a cross functional team to FDA submissions. This role requires experience working in a regulated industry, such as chronically active implanted medical devices.
This team member will work collaboratively with internal and external resources to drive on-schedule device builds. Experience in the planning and execution of design verification for complex medical devices is beneficial, in addition to experience contribution to Risk Management documentation.
