Are you an Electrical or Software engineering professional looking for a new career?

Stryker is a brand that stands for quality, and we take pride in proactively building quality into our products. An Advanced Quality Engineer (AQE) at Stryker Medical plays a key role in the development of new products that aim to make healthcare better in the Acute Care and EMS spaces.

The Advanced Quality Engineer at Stryker Medical will support the development of one or more projects from concept generation through production, having the unique opportunity to realize the entire product lifecycle. Early on in the development process, the AQE will partner with marketing and design to understand user needs and translate them into engineering specifications that constitute the basis of the design. As the product concept evolves, the AQE will be responsible for developing a risk management plan that mitigates product risk through the implementation of design and process controls. In the final phase of the project, the AQE will confirm the effectiveness of the risk management plan through verification testing and lead design validation efforts, including usability testing, to ensure the product conforms to its user needs.

With a specific focus on software and electrical systems, this person will work closely with software and electrical design teams, manufacturing, and suppliers to understand and influence the architecture, requirements, detail design, testing, and deployment of the EE/SW designs.
