The position

To ensure the safety of the patients using our medical devices, component manufacturing processes and equipment must be qualified and validated to ensure, that they comply with applicable quality standards.

You have an outgoing personality, and your communication style makes it easy for you to establish and maintain trustful relationships across a diverse organization, where many people have backgrounds very different from yours. You are great at engaging and managing stakeholders, and your direction-setting initiative is rivaled only by your ability to follow through and your keen appreciation of quality.
