We are looking for a talented Electrical/Hardware Engineer to design and realize an innovative minimally invasive medical implant.
Salvia is a young innovative start-up company active in the emerging field of “BioElectronics” that is inspired by biology and electronics to provide innovative therapeutic solutions. The name Salvia is derived from the Latin word salvere, which means "to stay healthy”. We are driven to deliver bioelectronic solutions that restore health for people suffering from severe neurologic disorders; our ambition is to make these novel therapies widely accessible. The Salvia team consists of experienced entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists with diverse professional backgrounds and proven track-record throughout the medical device industry (Sapiens, Medtronic, Philips, St Jude, BioSensors International, Kyphon, etc).
The body is controlled by patterns of electrical impulses transmitted through nerve fibers. In chronic disease, these patterns are different. Bioelectronics are smart implantable devices that use mild electrical pulses to influence nerve activity. Electrical stimulation is nothing new – cardiac pacemakers have been in use for decades – but scientists are just beginning to realize the possibilities of regulating nerve signals to treat disease.
Design and realize the electronics of our bioelectronic system, consisting of implantable and wearable devices. Your activities will be mainly in the fields of (inductive) wireless power transfer, power conversion, battery management and wireless communication. You closely work with our system architect to analyze the system needs and determine electrical requirements based on the system requirements. You will closely interact with suppliers and external partners to realize and test your designs and eliminate technology risks – from early prototypes through to the final stages of product verification and validation. You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team with a pioneering spirit and you are motivated to deliver solutions that truly stand out.
