Design electronic solutions for a bioelectronic system, consisting of implantable and wearable medical devices. Challenges are in (inductive) wireless power transfer, power conversion, battery management and wireless communication.
Salvia is a young innovative start-up company active in the emerging field of “BioElectronics” that is inspired by biology and electronics to provide innovative therapeutic solutions. The name Salvia is derived from the Latin word salvere, which means "to stay healthy”. We are driven to deliver bioelectronic solutions that restore health for people suffering from severe neurologic disorders; our ambition is to make these novel therapies widely accessible. The Salvia team consists of experienced entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists with diverse professional backgrounds and proven track-record throughout the medical device industry (Sapiens, Medtronic, Philips, St Jude, BioSensors International, Kyphon, etc).
The body is controlled by patterns of electrical impulses transmitted through nerve fibers. In chronic disease, these patterns are different. Bioelectronics are smart implantable devices that use mild electrical pulses to influence nerve activity. Electrical stimulation is nothing new – cardiac pacemakers have been in use for decades – but scientists are just beginning to realize the possibilities of regulating nerve signals to treat disease.
We are looking for a talented and ambitious Electrical Design Engineer to join our team. Your challenge is to design, realize and test solutions for our bioelectronic system, consisting of implantable and wearable devices. Your activities will be mainly in the fields of (inductive) wireless power transfer, power conversion, battery management and wireless communication. You closely interact with the system architect to analyze the system needs and determine electrical requirements based on the system requirements. You will closely interact with suppliers and external partners to realize and test your designs and eliminate technology risks – from early prototypes through to the final stages of product verification and validation. You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team with a pioneering spirit and you are motivated to deliver solutions that truly stand out.
More experienced candidates are encouraged to apply as well; as an ambitious and growing start-up company we also provide challenging and inspiring opportunities for seasoned professionals.
