Front-end SW Engineer with Experience from Medical Industry


Are you a front-end SW engineer with previous experience within the area of medical devices and are looking for a once in a lifetime job opportunity? If yes, then the currently open position at Syntach AB is a perfect match. At Syntach AB you will have the unique opportunity to develop the user interface in an innovative product for treatment of heart failure patients. The medical product will not only increase the patient survival rate and drastically improve their quality of life, but will also lower the overall healthcare costs.

Work Tasks:

In the role as front-end SW engineer/developer you will work with the user interface of the main innovative heart implant product. The product consists of two different user interfaces: the primary is a medical tablet used by the medical staff to evaluate, diagnose, and optimize the performance of the heart implant, and the secondary is a web based interface to access historical patient data stored on a server database. The work consists first and foremost of being responsible for the programming, implementation and maintenance of these user interfaces, where you will be closely
involved in all the different steps in the process. The steps may besides from programming also consist of iterative prototyping and testing, which are repeated until the final requirements are fulfilled. The work will also involve participation in the development and design of these user interfaces. All programming work is done with web libraries and frameworks, and involves both independent work and close collaboration with the rest of the team. Other work tasks include assisting with expertise regarding the purchase of consulting services and participate in the evaluation of suitable partners.

Education, Experience, Personal Characteristics, and other Requirements:

• M.Sc. or B.Sc. degree in relevant engineering discipline.
• Previous experience in the medical device industry.
• Great knowledge of front-end development.
• Very good experience and knowledge of programming with JavaScript
libraries (e.g. ReactJS and D3.js, or similar), frameworks (e.g. Next.js or similar) and tools/plugins (e.g. Gatsby or similar).
• Good verbal and written communication skills in English.
• Previous experience in the AIMD area (meriting).
• Knowledge of Back-end development, UX & UI design, Graphic design, and
UX Prototyping (meriting).

The employment requires engagement and commitment since independent and selfdriven work is expected. This leads to a great freedom in the work, but also requires the ability of being flexible and adaptive to change. Even though the position requires an independent and open way of working, as always in medical technology, it also requires collaboration and a precise structure and a meticulous documentation. Great interest in medical technology and SW engineering, especially front end programming, are other requirements suitable for the position.
To focus on solutions rather then on problems, and a desire to develop and challenge ones knowledge, are personal characteristics that would fit into the work environment. Other personal characteristics suitable for the employment are to obtain motivation from working with competent colleagues, willingness to contribute with technical expertise, and openness to share thoughts and ideas.
