Junior Product Development Engineer (healthtech)

Published on 01.07.2019

Surgify was born out of a willingness to develop a new technology that would make surgical operations safer. We are developing bone drilling technology that protects soft tissue and reduces surgical complications. In addition, operations can be performed in less time and with higher precision. Our innovation is groundbreaking because it can be attached to existing surgical drills meaning that surgeons can easily start using it without the need to purchase additional equipment. Our wish is to see our product being used in every operating room in the world and to succeed in our mission we are looking for a new member to join our crew!  


Surgify is looking for a Junior Product Development Engineer to join their team in Otaniemi. After its establishment in 2017 Surgify has been focusing on product development but is now in the finalizing stages and looking to launch the product towards the end of 2019. Clinical trials and laboratory test are being ran with the goal of having first procedures on patients in near future. This all means that additional forces are needed to the team and if you have been looking for an opportunity to put your skills in action for a meaningful mission, this could be it! 

As a Junior Product Development Engineer you will be working closely together with the whole Surgify team assisting in different tasks especially relating to product development and quality management. Your daily tasks can include for example building prototypes, CAD design with Solidworks, preparing technical documentation, assisting in physical testing and communicating with suppliers. As we are a startup the environment is dynamic and the tasks and responsibilities will grow with you. This is why we are looking for a person who is flexible, open-minded and ready for a steep learning curve. Our team will offer support as much as possible but you should also share our mentality in taking initiative on your own.

We are a diverse, multidisciplinary team and warmly welcome unique persons from all parts of the world. As a company, we prefer to work in a seamless, dynamic collaboration which is why good teamwork and communication skills are highly valued. We are able to offer full-time hours but in case you still have some studies left part-time hours can be arranged. 

We expect:

  • A degree or ongoing studies in mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering
  • Experience of CAD, especially with SolidWorks
  • Fluency in English, both written and spoken
  • Good teamwork skills, flexibility and willingness to work in a dynamic environment
  • Ability to commit to quality and discipline which is needed in the medical device field

We consider as an asset:

  • Finnish language skills

 Working at Surgify will take you to the forefront of technical development and with us you have an opportunity to work with groundbreaking technology that has a really concrete benefit – making surgery safer. The business we operate in is global meaning that you get to work in an international and multicultural environment. At Surgify you have an opportunity to grow your skills and grow with the company. In the future you could for example focus more on R&D, production, design or quality management depending on your interests and skills. Many of your tasks in the near future can require physical presence at the office so working fully remotely won’t be possible at least in the beginning. However if the nature of the tasks allows it, working from your home office is also possible. 

In this position you will be employed as aTalent employee at Surgify.
