We offer an exciting position for a Design and Development Engineer to support for the design, development and testing of our innovative medical device system.
Salvia is an innovative and ambitious start-up company active in the emerging field of “BioElectronics” that is inspired by biology and electronics to provide novel 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 therapies widely accessible. The Salvia team consists of entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists with diverse professional backgrounds and extensive medical device industry experience (Sapiens, Medtronic, Philips, St Jude, etc.).
The human body is controlled by patterns of electrical impulses transmitted through nerve fibers. In chronic disease, these patterns are different. Bioelectronics are tiny implantable devices that use mild electrical pulses to influence nerve activity. Electrical stimulation is nothing new – cardiac pacemakers have been used for decades – but scientists are just beginning to realize the possibilities of regulating nerve signals to treat disease.
We offer an exciting position for a Design and Development Engineer. Working together with the Salvia development team and our external technology partners, you are responsible for the design, development and testing of our highly innovative active implantable medical device system, consisting of implantable and wearables devices. You are able to translate solutions from conceptual phase to new product introduction. Closely collaborating with Salvia’s test and usability engineers and manufacturing partners you take ownership and have a pragmatic approach towards the realization of our advanced medical devices. You enjoy working in a multi-disciplinary start-up environment and have a can-do attitude. You realize that quality is of paramount importance and you are passionate about delivering solutions that truly stand out.
