For many agencies ‘medical devices’ is a buzzword, but KO2 gets to the heart of what recruitment in medical devices for electronics embedded systems business really means. As top-rated medical device recruiters, we truly know how to deliver a team that will deliver a high-quality medical device.

KO2 has helped medical device companies recruit entire teams and our candidates have been involved with projects from cradle to grave. We have also placed individuals into already established medical device businesses in positions such as medical device contract jobs, giving us the expertise to provide a full range of recruitment solutions.

We recruit for contract and permanent, hybrid or remote medical device job roles and help clients design and create regulated systems and software for the medical device and digital healthcare sector. For our clients in the medical device sector who are new businesses or startups, finding candidates who have experience with the necessary medical standards is often essential during the initial recruitment stages.

KO2 have previously found medical device experts who can review the existing state of software and compile a list of corrective actions if required, as well as experts who help create IEC-62304-compliant development processes whilst providing IEC-62304 and SDLC training to relevant personnel within the business.

Other examples of responsibilities for medical device engineers are ensuring that IEC62304-compliant processes are executed in the company whilst introducing the infrastructure required for IEC-62304 SDLC. This might also involve checking that ISO-14971 based software risk management is managed correctly or investigating the potential RTOS solutions whilst creating the software framework to be used for future medical devices.

In our experience, businesses will often recruit talented electronics, embedded, test and mechanical engineers who have worked in a regulated, safety-critical industry such as automotive, defence, or oil and gas. Once the necessary systems and procedures are in place, KO2 can help to build the team for our medical device clients ranging from electronics engineers, embedded software engineers, test engineers, and mechanical engineers in both permanent and contract medical engineer jobs.
