- This is a full-time position.
- This is a remote-friendly role, but occasional travel (mainly to our Toronto and Boston offices) will be necessary. We will show a preference for people that fall within the Eastern Standard time zone.
- Work hours are flexible, but meetings are likely to fall within the traditional 8-5 (EST) workday.
- Our ideal start date for this position is May 24, 2022. We can be flexible (either earlier or later) if needed.
- We will share the salary for this position during the intro call.
Hello! I’m Ian, and I lead our Engineering team at Synex Medical. We’re a ~26 person medical device startup, and we’re developing a miniaturized health monitor that can non-invasively measure blood metabolites like glucose and lactate. Our technology is based on novel techniques we’ve developed in magnetic resonance.
We're on track to deliver our MVP by the end of Q2 2022, which will measure glucose and lactate non-invasively. We are gearing up for some big milestones (series A, clinical validation, MVP delivery). To support these milestones, we’re looking to add an experienced mechanical engineer to the hardware engineering team.
There is plenty of design work to be done now, but the engineer that joins us will also help us prepare for the future.
Here are a couple of the things we need your help with:
- Designing complex parts and structures that interface with our magnets and electronics
- Integrating simulation tools such as COMSOL or ANSYS into the mechanical design process for finite element analysis
- Cooperating with manufacturers and vendors to create high precision, high tolerance specialized instrumentation and mechanical assemblies
- Developing manufacturing processes by designing and modifying equipment for fabricating, building, assembling, and installing components
We’re still a relatively small startup, so the division of labor between pure mechanical design and the broader engineering team is blurry. For someone that understands the industry (medical devices/instrumentation development) and stage (product design) that we’re in, this position will offer many opportunities to contribute outside of your area of expertise and grow.
This role is also ideal for someone that wants to blend science with mechanical design. If you’re interested in learning more about permanent magnets and NMR, you’ll have that opportunity here.
Here's what we believe you’ll need to be successful:
- Experience working in an R&D setting
- Comfort with owning a design from concept to completion
- Desire to work with multi-disciplinary teams to solve complex problems
- Ability to define workflows, set deadlines, and execute project plans
- Knowledge of automation and robotics as they relate to manufacturing
- Ability to work with contract manufacturers and build supplier relationships
- Experience leading Engineering elements of design control, risk management, and change order processes

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
