  • Ensure the adequate follow-up of development processes, according to quality standards imposed in the medical devices industry
  • Organize the project closure





You have:
  • A master degree in science or engineering, or an equivalent experience
  • A first experience in an R&D team within a strongly regulated tech industry (e.g. medical devices, pharma, nuclear, airspace), during which you delivered results in time and quality
  • One or more life experiences in which you had to showcase leadership skills and helped a team organize itself
  • Excellent communication skills in English, both oral and written (French is a plus)
  • A first experience in Project Management is a major plus
And you are:
  • Driven by high ethical standards
  • Client-minded: you listen actively and understand the others' challenges
  • Assertive with your stakeholders (team, customers and suppliers)
  • Flexible and stress-resistant
  • Organized and able to set priorities, with very good planning skills
  • A team player and a healthy challenger of our current way of working
  • Creative: you build solutions with your team to navigate between constraints (healthcare processes, resource bottlenecks, etc.)
  • Curious, willing to learn and fascinated by new technologies. You have a broad technical knowledge and willing to update it continuously
