- This is a full-time position.
- We intend to hire someone that lives in the Greater Toronto area and can travel to our downtown office as needed. That being said, we wouldn't need you to be in the office every day, and there aren't particular days you'd be required to come in.
- 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 November 2022. We can be flexible with the start date if needed.
- We will share the salary for this position during the intro call.
Hello from the hardware engineering team at Synex Medical! We’re a ~28 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 Q4 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 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 intricate fixtures, electromechanical systems, and complex parts that interface with our magnets and electronics
- Integrating simulation tools such as finite element analysis (FEA) into the mechanical design process
- Previous work experience with FEA simulation tools such as COMSOL, Ansys, or equivalent
- Design for thermal and EMI considerations
- Cooperating with manufacturers and vendors to create high precision, high tolerance specialized instrumentation, and mechanical assemblies - all while balancing GD&T controls (ASME Y14.5-2018) and functionality
- 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 a science background with mechanical design skills. If you’re interested in learning more about permanent magnets and NMR, you’ll have that opportunity here.
Here are a couple of things 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

We're looking forward to hearing from you!
