Job Summary:

Experienced, cross-functionally skilled engineer (electrical/software/mechanical) responsible for Systems Engineering efforts associated with ZOLL's defibrillator, patient monitoring product lines. Primary responsibilities include assisting with system and subsystem level Product Supports, Root-Cause investigations, Failure Mode Analysis, providing recommendation/solutions for and contributing to the implementation and verification of complex defibrillator/patient monitor systems in a matrix setting

Responsibilities

  • Works with Project/Program management to help establish and refine system level requirements for assigned new and enhanced products.
  • Member of  development  team  in  translating  system  and subsystem level (including product accessories) requirements  into  product architecture  and  system  level  design  including  partitioning  functionality  into  sub-systems, often creating specifications for each sub-system and documenting the interface requirements among   the  sub-systems.
  • Ensures that new product architecture meets system level requirements, is appropriately featured, robust, and adaptable enough to support product lifecycle plans and objectives.
  • Helps establish performance, interface, safety, and cost specifications for each sub-system within the selected architecture in consultation with the functional design
  • Contributes to the system level risk management activities associated with assigned programs.
  • Works with Program Manager to allocate system functionality among electrical, software, and mechanical subsystems, recommends hardware, software and/or mechanical, vs. cost, time and performance trade-offs along with safety decisions necessary  to  meet  the  product's clinical  performance,  reliability, manufacturability & serviceability,  regulatory,  and  business
  • Contributes during the product implementation phase to develop and refine the system  level design, identify, and  resolve  sub-system  performance  and  interface  issues,  and  resolve  cross­ functional  design  issues that  have  system  level i
  • Contributes to team efforts during the subsystem integration and verification testing phases to ensure that critical sub-systems meet their individual performance, interface, and system integration goals and to ensure that the fully integrated system robustly meets its performance, safety, and cost requi
