We are looking for an Analog Design Engineer for our R&T department at our Bakken Research Center in Maastricht, the Netherlands.

Careers that Change Lives

At our Bakken Research Center in Maastricht, about 300 clinical researchers, scientists and technical engineers cooperate closely with medical specialists in and outside of Europe to develop new and improve existing therapies in Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management, Cardiovascular Surgery, Neuromodulation and Diabetes. The BRC is Medtronic’s largest campus of clinical research and innovation outside of the US.

Medtronic is partner in a consortium including partners like University of Bath - Department of Physics,  University of  Zurich -, Centre for Neuroinformatics, University of Bristol - Department of Physiology, Microsemi Ltd, Medical University of Wienna, University Medical Center Utrecht, St Anne’s University Hospital - International Clinical Research Centre-  Brno - Czech Rep.

A Day in the Life

The Analog Design Engineer will participate in the CResPace project. The aim of the CResPace project , funded by the Horizon 2020 EU Framework, is to realize, in 60 months, a pacemaker, which acts on sensor input from a number of implantable sensors including optical sensors.

You will collaborate with University of Bath and Microsemi, participate in system integration (electronics, sensor, packaging) and prototyping. As Analog Designer you are also responsible for test and validation before the device is handed to clinical partners for clinical evaluation.

Together with BRC R&T Scientists Team, you will have the responsibility for coordinating, designing miniaturizing  hardware and firmware for the CResPace sensors to be interfaced with an adaptive pacemaker. You will take the lead, architect and design low-power sensor interfaces, as well test systems to prove sensor functionality. The Analog Designer may lead the discussions of technical issues, and other design aspects with internal teams and with customers, will draft and deliver documents to internal and customer teams.

In addition to the CResPace project the Analog Designer will actively contribute to electronics and software technology projects currently being performed for the Cardiac Rhythm Heart Failure business unit.
