Primary Function of Position:

As Intuitive’s da Vinci® Surgical System becomes adopted by an increasing population of hospitals, surgeons and patients, we are building a focused team to drive reliability, quality, and safety to ever-better levels. This focus applies to product in use, product in manufacturing, and product in design. Help us empower this new reliability program in our young and growing company by bringing your hands-on experience in solving tough engineering problems, your fascination with complex electro-mechanical devices, and your passion for the right way to design, monitor, and improve product and process. Intuitive seeks a strong technical contributor who can help define practical, useful reliability metrics and specifications, identify key opportunities for product improvement, initiate reliability test programs, and lead implementation of the program into the product development process. An ideal candidate possesses a broad base of experience in reliability testing or other engineering discipline in a medical device setting, and is equally at home in the test lab and providing technical leadership to our team as we develop standard practices of our organization. You will not abide “process red tape”, instead passionately seeking the most efficient way to build in quality. You will use the most advanced analytical techniques to analyze product data and make reliability predictions. But you will also coach, mentor, teach, and influence the engineering staff in general reliability principles, reliability analysis, protocol development, and design for reliability methods.

Roles and Responsibilities:

This position has responsibility and authority for:

1) Data Analysis

  • Analyze supplier, engineering, production, and field data using appropriate reliability techniques such as Weibull, Duane etc.
  • Combine data analysis with detailed knowledge of the product function to identify the “critical elements” that when addressed provide superior results for our customers.
  • Provide input into the design of product software and business databases to enable improved collection and analysis of quality and reliability data.
2) New Product Development
