Advert description

Medical Device Development Engineer
Cambridge, United Kingdom

Are you a strong mechanical engineer with an interest in the whole development lifecycle and a desire to develop a long-term career in biopharmaceuticals with a leading name in the field? Then Pfizer has the ideal opportunity.

One of the world’s premier innovative biopharmaceutical companies, we’ve discovered, developed and delivered over 100 different medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products worldwide. Products that help save and transform the lives of millions of people around the world every year. And, we want you on board. You’ll be an integral part of our friendly and growing team leading the development of mechanical and electro-mechanical drug delivery devices within our Research and Development Devices Centre of Excellence located close to the world-famous university city of Cambridge.

Your challenge? To lead the design and engineering aspects of a drug delivery device from requirements capture through to manufacturing support, trouble-shooting and complaints investigations. As well as identifying and analyzing technical problems, you’ll need to understand the patient needs and capabilities, manage suppliers and collaborate with internal stakeholders. You’ll get to travel internationally from time to time too.

It’s an outstanding opportunity to make the most of your engineering experience, critical thinking and coordination skills. And, because our pipeline is strong, with a possible 15 blockbusters in the next five years, you won’t just be part of a strong, patient-focused team in a positive yet flexible working environment, you’ll have every opportunity to help influence change and to take something to market too.

As well as a degree or equivalent in mechanical engineering, product design or similar, you’ll need experience of tolerance analysis, CAD (preferably Creo) and risk assessment. FEA, injection moulding or medical device experience would also be a benefit. Ultimately, we’re looking for a proactive, collaborative, problem-solver with some experience of design control, an ability to see the wider implications of technical decisions and a strong desire to make things work.
