Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs Officer (QA/RA Officer)

Vitestro is working on an autonomous blood drawing device with a team of >30 people. This breakthrough innovation, which is in a clinical stage of development, uses a combination of state-of-the-art imaging and robotics to perform an invasive clinical procedure. With this device, Vitestro can support healthcare staff in their daily clinical work, increasing access to care for patients.

We are ambitious, and strongly believe that we have only just started. Technology lies at our core: our 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.

Our new QA/RA officer

We now have a unique opportunity for a QA / RA officer to join our team. 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. The venipuncture device is the first medical device on the market that makes an autonomous a decision based on images to insert a needle in a human body.
The system consists of a variety of subsystems and disposables, which each bring their own technical, clinical and regulatory challenges. A couple of significant regulatory challenges are:

Your timing is perfect: you will be joining Vitestro during probably the most interesting QA/RA period in time as 2022 will be incredibly important. Vitestro will apply for an ISO 13485 certificate spring 2022 with its notified body. Additionally, Vitestro will explore its FDA strategy to prepare for its FDA submission.


As QA/RA officer, you will be responsible for all the Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance within the company. This includes:

The QA/RA officer should keep the high-level overview of all the QA/RA processes within the company.

Several regulatory consultants are involved each with their own expertise (such as: clinical validation, biocompatibility) to help us crack the most difficult regulatory challenges.

You will report directly to the CEO of Vitestro and work closely together with our current QA/RA team & medical officer.
