Company Description:
FluidAI is creating a paradigm shift in post-operative care, utilizing the plethora of data within the body, to help in the detection of post-operative complications at their onset. Our clinically-validated platform sensing technology augments existing wound drains and catheters, providing healthcare providers with a smart monitoring tool that can support earlier detection of deadly complications and enhance the delivery of care.
We are an equal opportunity employer and have a diverse team representation across language, ethnicity, gender, and nationality.
The candidate would join the R&D Engineering team to support the research, development and manufacturing of our proprietary sensor modules and upstream sensor technologies. The candidate will primarily work with the team to design, execute and improve existing sensor-related processes and research projects. They would provide assistance to our clinical, manufacturing and data analysis teams as needed. They would also work to design, bring-up, and test hardware for commercial medical devices and research studies.
At FluidAI we believe that a work/life balance helps get the best out of people, which is why we have a flexible, hybrid – office first – work model.
Why Join FluidAI?
· Mission to save lives and improve patient care with technology that’s already deployed on patients in real-world settings.
· Work with a high-performing and cross-functional team that is empowered to grow, learn, and contribute across all levels of the organization.
· Gain exposure across the entire technical stack, from novel sensing technologies and proprietary hardware to mobile/web software and ML algorithms.
· Personal career-focused development and training with access to workshops, coursework, and experienced mentors/consultants.
· Regular offsite activities – past events include rafting, axe-throwing, sports leagues, and the usual BBQ.
Job Responsibilities:
· Design, improve and test sensor-related processes in current and future product iterations.
· Plan and execute experimental procedures for various research projects.
· Analysis, thorough documentation, and presentation of R&D data to various internal and external stakeholders.
· Troubleshooting and root-cause analysis of sensor-related issues, often with limited data and context.
· Write, update, and execute verification and validation tests.
· Propose sensor technologies to future product requirements, assess feasibility, and plan for integration into product pipeline.
· Contribute to PCB design, development of firmware, testing of hardware, and interfacing with manufacturers.
· Collaborate with the quality team to Develop Firmware/Hardware test and verification plans and protocols and conduct prototype testing and verification testing.
· Assist our internal R&D and manufacturing teams wherever needed.
Required Skills:
You're self-driven and able to adapt in a fast-paced team environment without losing attention to detail. You thrive in a collaborative, cross-functional team setting and want to work with like-minded, high performers even when the pressure builds up. You will often be facing real-world and open-ended challenges, and you're ready to dive into uncharted territories. You can question the status quo and fall back to the fundamentals of the natural world. You're not afraid to take the driver's seat, love to learn and can quickly grasp new concepts as they arise during your work. If this sounds like you, we'd love to meet you!
