Senior Development Engineer

The Role

This is an integral role in defining our product and its pathway through design, compliance and manufacturing to a successful outcome. This is a senior role with opportunity to grow into or already be a lead architect role for the right candidate.

Our product is novel; it has a groundbreaking UX for multiple users. It includes numerous new IP blocks, requires high-efficiency manufacturing systems, has multiple embedded processors and communications protocols, custom hardware, and integrated third-party components, is highly regulated, and will ship to multiple countries.

We already have a number of systems outlines, concepts, and functional prototypes - we need to resolve these to a real product in the market - and we need a top systems engineer to help us coordinate and navigate our complex design needs.


Some of the things that you might be involved in include:

  • Establishing, documenting, and disambiguating our complex product and regulatory requirements.
  • Creating an efficient documentation and information sharing system for tracking our system requirements through the product lifecycle.
  • Working with the engineering team to assist in rapid prototyping of new concepts to realise and validate IP blocks and systems concepts.
  • Working alongside our regulatory team to understand compliance constraints and ideating systems designs and strategies.

Plus a whole lot more - reach out if you'd like to see the full job spec before applying!
