Project Manager – Medical Devices
We see it as our goal and purpose to improve people’s quality of life, helping them gain or regain hearing ability through our advanced hearing implants. Did you know for example that there is a proven close relation between hearing impairment and dementia?
Join us in making a difference for people with a severe hearing loss as an Implant Project Manager in Oticon Medical’s bone anchored product development department.
The impact you can make
As Implant Project Manager, you will have the responsibility of leading and driving a variety of projects within bone anchored implants covering both Class II and Class III implants, surgical tools and techniques. You will be fully responsible for planning and executing from concepts to successful release to the market. You will be part of an international team of Project Managers leading projects in Oticon Medical covering our Bone Anchored Hearing Systems (BAHS) portfolio.
You will be based in Gothenburg and part of Oticon Medical BAHS R&D. Our project activities, however, are distributed across several sites (Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Nice and Stettin), so multi-site project management will be a natural part of your daily work. Our project activities cover both development of new products and investigation and preparation of new technologies, and our project teams are typically multi-disciplinary and can include R&D, Operations, Regulatory, Clinical as well as Marketing. For our implant projects, the core development team will typically be located in Gothenburg.
Furthermore, your key responsibilities include:
- Leading a project team of skilled development engineers and specialists
- Ensure deliveries complying to medical, regulatory and internal quality requirements
- Project reporting and milestone reviews according to our quality management system
- Ensuring the right compromises and decisions both on overall product scope and down to technical specifications
- Pro-active stakeholder management – both internally and to external partners or subcontractors
- Ensuring MDR and FDA compliance and high quality of our solutions together with Clinical Affairs and Quality.
In order to be a success in this role, it is vital that you possess both a solid technical background and experience within project management of device development. On top of this we envision you have the following skills and qualifications:
- A B.Sc. or an M.Sc. engineering degree or similar technical background preferably within mechanical development
- 3-5 years of experience in management of product projects within hardware development, preferably passive or active implants
- Experience from medical device development and medical device standards
- Experience from working with cross-functional teams across multiple sites
- Fluency in English (spoken/written)
We are looking for a doer who can maneuver in a small organization where you have to engage on multiple levels in the organization and toward suppliers as well as external stakeholders.
To be a match in this role, it is crucial that you understand the importance of ensuring deliveries on-time and handling multiple stakeholders. This means that you are result driven and capable of setting clear goals for yourself and your team; create a strong team spirit across multiple locations and departments. You know how to lead and motivate your project team towards success.
Furthermore, you have a general technical insight and curiosity to support a multi-disciplinary work environment in developing as well as market a high-tech medical device system.
We offer a result driven and ambitious culture in our endeavors to reach our goals. We show flexibility and expect you to do the same. Since we are a global company working across sites, you should be able to travel +20 days per year.
