  • Ensure products are designed to be safe and efficacious for users, e.g. by doing comprehensive analytical evaluations of complex design solutions, by identifying and resolving design issues and technical risks
  • Develop new products in an expeditious manner and ensuring all parties involved in the core team are aware of the current project status
  • Resolve technical problems related to new and existing products by working with the Tooling Engineering Specialist and collaborating with injection moulding vendors during tool development, build and production
  • Maintain all product development documents in an orderly and systematic filing system by working with Document Control staff

Planning and Administration

  • Ensure integrity of product designs by maintaining organized project design files.

Support and Collaboration

  • Resolve technical problems related to new and existing products by collaborating with injection moulding vendors during tool development, build and production
  • Ensure products meet customer and business needs by collaborating internally and externally, e.g. Marketing, Manufacturing Engineering, clinical investigators, etc. 
  • Accountable for on time delivery of projects by responding to vendor inquiries and technical problems

Health and Safety

  • Adhere to all current relevant policies, procedures, and legislation, e.g., QMS
  • Comply with relevant health and safety legislation, including the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, etc.
