Job Description

We have a Passion for Life.

We enable hospitals to perform surgeries, we assist healthcare professionals in treating acute health conditions and we ensure safe care for patients during recovery. Our innovative, products and services contribute to saving lives across the world every day.

A career at Getinge Group offers a dynamic, international environment with a market leading company where you can learn, grow and thrive whilst passionately contributing to sustainable healthcare.

Working for Getinge is much more than a job – we offer a career that matters!


For this search, we are seeking a seasoned Systems Engineer to help lead the overall systems development for new electronic chest drainage devices.  Chest drains are used following open or thoracic surgery and chest trauma to evacuate any air and/or fluid.  The current “typical” chest drain is a non-electronic, gravity based, analog medical device.  These new electronic chest drains provide increased functionality and improved patient diagnostic information for the clinical team.

To succeed in this role, you will have a strong System Engineering background and acumen; this position will require the application of your Software (Firmware / IEC 62304); Electrical (PCBAs / Circuit Design); Mechanical (molded parts / pneumatics), and general medical device systems (IEC 60601 / ISO 13485) experience.

You will be challenged by designing complex parts/assemblies with embedded control systems; managing the overall design and creation of the Firmware and PCBAs (including the selection of ICs, memory, power and electrical specifications); troubleshooting electrical/software defects; and ensuring all of this is completed per project schedule.

As an experienced medical device System Engineer, you will be comfortable with creating and releasing the applicable documentation and specifications in support of this device (e.g. HW/SW requirements, code reviews, FMECAs, Risk Management, Test Methods / Specifications /Reports, Verification, and Validation).

The ideal candidate would have a minimum of twelve years’ experience in the development of electronic medical device systems that connect into a Hospital Information System.

  • Direct experience with embedded software in sensor based control systems, pneumatics, networking, file systems, USB, embedded databases, PCBA design, and graphical user interfaces.
  • Demonstrated mastery in C / C++ and at least one scripting language (e.g. Python, SQL, Perl, Shell, etc). 
  • A technical leader in software design, implementation, and debugging; you have a deep understanding on how code will perform and compete with other processes for system resources. 
  • Knowledge and experience with Hospital Information Systems (HIS) connectivity technologies is a plus. 

Getinge is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, genetic information, national origin, disability, protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.



If you share our Passion for Life and innovative healthcare solutions that improve the everyday life for people all over the world, then please apply if this position is of interest to you.

We look forward to your application and hope you will join us on our journey to become the world’s most desired medtech company.
