builds the embedded software platform for next-generation surgical
robotic systems. We're looking for a high energy, talented,
engineer to contribute broadly to the embedded software stack. We
are a small group that works in a focused, high-energy environment.
We believe in applying first principles thinking, data driven
decision making, continuous learning, systematic planning to
deliver results and achieve our goals.
- Are you passionate about technology? Do you want to have a
direct impact on helping people live better lives?
- Interested in the medical applications of robotics?
- Do you like to build complex distributed systems?
- Does working in a multidisciplinary, systems-oriented design
team sound exciting? Your Role: You'll be joining the team
responsible for developing several generations of our flagship
product, the daVinci Xi, to develop new surgical robotic systems.
You'll have the opportunity and responsibility to own development
of your features, end to end. From concept to cross functional
requirements gathering, to implementation, test and verification,
success is in your hands. You will be programming C++ systems
software on microcontrollers deeply embedded in the robotic system
but, you are in your heart, an integrator. Collaboration comes
naturally to you which will help you develop robust solutions to
complex problems and share them with other new product development
engineering teams. Your Responsibilities :
- In your first year in this role, you will contribute broadly to
many areas of software development, including but not limited to:
- Develop fault reaction logic to gracefully degrade auxiliary
services and features that enhance the surgical experience but in
the strictest sense, are not essential to perform surgery.
- Coordinate and control distributed embedded hardware resources
to enable reliable retention of critical business data.
- Apply systems thinking to the embedded fault reaction model to
handle and recover from localized and systemwide fault events
- Design and develop product-focused, rock-solid, C++ software in
a heterogeneous, multi-processor SoC/FPGA/real-time-embedded
- Work on a cross-functional team to develop technical
specifications and evaluate design trade-offs
- Perform formal risk analysis, develop software mitigations, run
V&V and participate in design transfer to manufacturing
activities. Qualifications Required Expertise :
- A natural communicator with high attention to detail
- Possess a commitment to the highest product quality
- Passionate about developing cross-platform, object-oriented C++
- Proven ability to proactively engage with the
unknown/unfamiliar, learn how things work and apply that learning
to new challenges.
- Experience working on product-focused designs in a team
- Minimum 3 years industry experience developing and supporting
- Bachelors or Masters' degree in Software/Computer
- Experience with designing software products in an FDA or other
regulated industry or for mission critical applications; comfort
with concepts of design input, design output, traceability, and
risk analysis, and mitigations Additional Information All your
information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
Due to the nature of our business and the role, please note that
