TTP plc. Full-time 2023-01-18

Head of Product Engineering - Neurotech

  • Location
    Cambridge, United Kingdom

Description

By partnering with the world's most ambitious companies, TTP’s consultant engineers and scientists are developing the next generation of implantable devices. We’re creating breakthrough neurotechnologies for conditions such as epilepsy, sleep apnoea, Parkinson’s, tinnitus, and chronic pain. Your technical insights and operational oversight will help shape this global innovation race.

As the Head of Product Engineering, you’ll lead the design and transfer to manufacture of complex active implantable medical devices - from proof-of-concept through to market launch. You’ll oversee a diverse and fascinating range of front-end projects in this rapidly developing field. Each new discovery will have a far-reaching impact.

Working closely and strategically with our Neurotech Team Lead, you’ll help consolidate and cultivate TTP’s customer base in this market, building and mentoring a team of technical experts with the potential to grow further and support other parts of TTP’s Health Tech business.


Responsibilities

This newly created role is integral to our goal of realising the extraordinary opportunities available within the Neurotech domain. You will be primarily responsible for ensuring the successful delivery of projects for TTP’s clients as well as growing the team’s capabilities through supportive line management, mentoring and strategic recruitment. You’ll be regularly encouraged by colleagues to share your lived experience of medical device development.

Other key objectives and responsibilities will include:

  • Project leadership - including program management, technical leadership, resource management, and client relationship management. You’ll also get to support business development by meeting potential clients, putting together project plans, and writing proposals.
  • Operational responsibility for the delivery of projects on time, to budget, and to the client’s satisfaction.
  • Drawing on your experience of developing and launching medical devices, you’ll also be able to advise colleagues and clients on the appropriate product development and regulatory processes. Your insights into risk management will directly impact design and manufacturing decisions.
  • Contributing to the strategy for the Neurotechnology market team to enhance TTP’s Active Implantable Medical Device (AIMD) product engineering capabilities over the next 3 years.

Requirements

You’re likely to be invited to interview if your application includes:

  • Details of how you have led the engineering of a novel AIMD from development through to clinical trials or product launch.
  • Evidence of your team management and/or project leadership experience.
  • A system-level understanding of neuromodulation device design and risk management having worked under 13485 (or equivalent).
  • A degree in Engineering or a related discipline with a track record of academic excellence.

During the interview process, you’ll also be encouraged to demonstrate your communication skills and your ability to explain complex concepts to technical audiences.
