Vitestro is a fast-growing medical robotic company. We are the first in the world to develop a fully autonomous blood-drawing device using a combination of state-of-the-art A.I. and robotics. With our multidisciplinary team of >30 people we strive to innovate and improve clinical diagnostics, increasing resilience of our healthcare systems. To strengthen our team, we are looking for a DevOps engineer, who is as passionate about developing medical robotic systems as we are.

Responsibilities

As a DevOps Engineer, you will work in an agile environment to support our software development life cycle of our medical device. You will work on a variety of topics, ranging from managing the continuous integration/continuous deployment infrastructure, virtualization and configuration management. Of course, you are always happy to help with the other activities, like, building the device operating system, quality monitoring, data management, network/cyber security, support during clinical evaluations, and various other topics.

You always keep in mind that you are developing a medical device. Patient safety and regulatory requirements are therefore paramount. A considerable part of your work will therefore be spent on reviews, testing, documentation and quality management.

You will work frequently outside your comfort zone, with a lot of different novel technologies. In addition, you will collaborate with different disciplines.

Introduction

At Vitestro, we are developing an autonomous blood drawing device. Given the global population growth and shortages of healthcare personnel, we strongly believe our innovation will create a lasting, positive impact for clinical diagnostics. 

To strengthen our software development team, we are looking for a Junior/Medior Software Test Engineer, who is as passionate about developing medical robotic systems as we are.

Job description

As Junior/Medior Test Engineer, you will be responsible for testing in one of our software scrum teams. You will ensure that all software developed by your team follows our quality guidelines and adheres to the system- and regulatory requirements. This may include assisting the software engineers to implement/refactor test cases and/or do this yourself.
You make sure the test cases are executed regularly and proactively monitor the results. Naturally, you strive to automate the test cases as much as possible, to improve our continuous integration and deployment environment.

At the end of each development cycle, you will help with system verification/validation. You will make sure all results are reported and anomalies are processed according to our development procedures.

Grasp your opportunity

This position is also open for software engineers wishing to develop themselves as a strong Software Test Engineer, without previous experience in testing.  We will make sure that, in a short period of time, you become a test engineer that understands and masters all relevant aspects of software testing. However, it is important that you are already proficient in Python.

Your profile

Recruitment agencies: we are not looking to collaborate.

 

Vitestro is a fast-growing medical robotics company. We are the first in the world to develop a fully autonomous blood-drawing device. The venipuncture device uses infrared and ultrasound to localize the vein in the arm of the patient.
A robotic positioning system controls the interaction between the ultrasound probe and the arm of the patient, while an ultrasound probe creates a 3D image of the vein using artificial intelligence (a.i.). The optimal insertion location is determined by the software algorithms to position the needle in the middle of the vein of the patient and draw blood.

Vitestro develops and tests its technology in clinical trials performed at several hospitals. With our multidisciplinary team of >35 people we strive to innovate and improve clinical diagnostics, increasing resilience of our healthcare system.

As Chief Technology Officer (CTO) / Head of Engineering you will get one of the most important roles within our technology company. You are responsible for all engineering and R&D activities ranging from software, mechanical and electrical engineering. You will interact daily with the software & hardware architects, product manager and project manager(s). The team consists of ~15 software engineers, ~10 hardware engineers and a couple of other roles totaling >25 people.

Responsibilities

There are 4 pillars of your responsibilities:

1. Technical management

You have a good overview and technology vision of what is required on the technical product roadmap. You are able to judge what enablers are important and what the best order is of feature/enabler development. You are involved in the high-level technology decisions together with the systems and software architects and you can force decisions if required.

2. Project management

Vitestro is a pre-revenue scale-up, where time to market is key. You will keep an overview of the short- and long term planning of the product and ensure that the engineering teams will make their deadlines. You will track the progress with setting the right KPIs. You are on top of the output of the team by asking the right questions and supporting the project managers in their day-to-day job. If timelines are not met, you will act by changing scope, resources or quality.

3. Quality Assurance / Regulatory Affairs – obtaining regulatory approval

Our medical device has to pass the MDR and FDA. Together with our Quality and Regulatory team you will be responsible for meeting all the MDR requirements (first focus) and preparing the Technical File. You will make sure that the engineering team is working according all SOPs and work instructions, which are part of our QMS (Quality Management System - ISO13485).

4. HR responsibilities

The Head of Engineering / CTO has 7 direct reports, consisting of 4 technical architects, 2 project managers and 1 product manager and an additional ~20 indirect reports.

Who we are 

Vitestro will be the first to bring autonomous blood drawing technology to European hospitals. Blood drawing, performed billions of times per year worldwide, is key to clinical diagnosis. Given the mounting shortages of healthcare personnel and global population growth, there is a clear need for a future-proof system to guarantee continuity of care.

To help solve this problem we are developing an autonomous blood drawing device. We are the first in the world to develop a fully autonomous blood-drawing device using a combination of state-of-the-art A.I. and robotics. The venipuncture device uses infrared and ultrasound to localize the vein in the arm of the patient. A robotic positioning system controls the interaction between the ultrasound probe and the arm of the patient, while an ultrasound probe creates a 3D image of the vein using artificial intelligence (A.I.). The optimal insertion location is determined by the software algorithms to position the robotic needle insertion in the middle of the vein, ensuring accurate and secure blood collection. The procedure is performed fully automatically, from tourniquet to bandage application.

We are ambitious and strongly believe that we have only just started. Technology lies at our core: multidisciplinary team primarily consists of highly specialized hardware and software engineers. We also have our own medical team, driving clinical trials together with our clinical partners. 

About the job

As a RA Officer at Vitestro you are responsible for you will be responsible for all the Regulatory Affairs within the company. With an emphasis on regulatory strategy and technical file documentation. Several regulatory consultants are involved, each with their own expertise (such as: clinical validation, biocompatibility) to help us crack the most difficult regulatory challenge. There are no comparable devices on the market; Vitestro will be the first company in the world to receive CE and in the future FDA approval on this device. Your timing is perfect: you will be joining Vitestro during probably the most interesting RA period in time as the next 12 months will be incredibly important. Additionally, Vitestro will explore its FDA strategy to prepare for a potential FDA submission. The system consists of a variety of subsystems and disposables, which each bring their own technical, clinical and regulatory challenges.

What we are looking for

What we offer

We need a go-getter who enjoys solving one of the toughest challenges. We are looking for someone who gets enthusiastic about reaching our goals as a team. A fit with our team values is important which are: Contribution to Patient care, Realizing breakthroughs, Team play, Ownership & Dedication, and Champions League (playing at the highest level).
