Who we want:

Test Engineers work closely with R&D to experiment with early prototypes and vet out product designs throughout the design process.  What this really means is that we get to be the Mythbusters of our division.  You think your design can last the entire expected service life?  We put it to the test.  Just like the show, we quickly design and build fixtures to simulate real life situations.  In addition to these experiments, we are ultimately responsible for design verification – the quantitative testing of the technical specifications of the product.  We are a close-knit team of more than twenty engineers, technicians, and managers.  Our experience ranges from 1 to over 15 years with technical specialties ranging from sterilization, mechanical, electrical, software, optics, packaging, and reprocessing.  If you’re the type of person that has the magic ability to break things – we want you!
