Job Description:

To help us to define and realize the next generations of scanner products and solutions for Dental CBCT, we are looking for a highly skilled mechanical engineer. The position relates to both cross functional systems engineering and the integration of detailed development design outputs of mechanics and electro-mechanics for CBCT scanners and related accessories.

Systems engineering in 3Shape is an interdisciplinary focus area that helps our development projects evaluating and managing complex technical systems. This will require you to understand the inherent complexity in a technical concept, evaluate its pros and cons and deliver easily understandable solutions and guidance to the project team.

We are using state of the art modeling and simulation tools, and the successful candidate will apply his/her scientific and practical domain knowledge to provide optimum solutions to structural aspects and mechanisms of 3D medical scanners. Using our prototyping facilities, and ultimately in our production facility in Poland, a significant amount of time will be spent with the project team to conceptualize and verify aspects of the design against user needs and other requirements. Our products are medical devices, which leads to a natural focus on user requirements, safety, quality and efficacy of our systems.

Your Profile:

The ideal candidate will possess most or all the following qualifications:

• A higher university degree - most likely in mechanical engineering

• At least 5-8 years of experience with technical product development, preferably but not necessarily from the medical device industry.

• Experience in designing and analyzing mechanical and electro-mechanical components and assemblies

• Experience includes multiple projects taking parts from initial concept and design through to production.

• Strong knowledge of materials properties and manufacturing methods.

• Proficient in 3D CAD and preferably CAE.

• Knowledge or at least some familiarity with electronics, optics, software, or other adjacent field.

• Exceptional communication and documentation skills.
