Oticon is once more rated as #1 place to work for Engineers
But why is that? We believe it is our innovative work environment. Oticon is a large, growing company in the medical-technical industry, where our +500 engineers are all committed to deliver well-made, high tech solutions for hearing impaired people worldwide.
We want hearing impaired people to be able to experience the sounds of life. This is the foundation of everything we do. This is what drives us and keeps us focused on innovation and efficiency. For us, true engineering excellence is to deliver an ultra-small technological marvel in a discrete, user-friendly package. This takes state-of-the-art development methods and serious engineering skills. We want unmatched, high performing solutions and walk the extra mile in our quest for technological excellence.
Who are we?
We have decided to strengthen the way of working with verification and test in the development of our products. You will therefore join our Requirements & Verification Group within R&D focusing on implementing improvements of tools and processes. The processes and tools we are responsible for cover hardware and software and multiple development methods from Stage Gate Models to Agile.
Therefore, we are looking for a Process Specialist with knowledge within verification and a solid experience with rolling out solutions and improvements in a diverse setup. In return, we offer you a job in an engaged team with a relaxed yet professional attitude. We – like the rest of Oticon – take pride in being great colleagues and help each other achieve our goals together.
In your new position you will plan and drive initiatives focused on improving the way we work with verification to strengthen the quality of the products we develop. You will in this way influence our test methodology and have contact to many colleagues across the organization. You will be the expert in the framework and way of working with verification and you will support your colleagues in this. Your expertise will cover test management and how to apply it in development of products within a regulated medical device context.
Your main responsibilities will be:
- Driving improvement initiatives in the context of verification both for processes and tools
- Maintaining verification management best practices, instructions and processes
- Supporting the users of processes and tools provided by the Requirement & Verification Group
- Participating in relevant audits, reviews and approvals
- Ensuring that the verification process integrates seamlessly with the other systems engineering disciplines
- Take on the role as test manager in delivery projects – “walk the talk”
Who are you?
We expect you to hold a degree within Engineering and a specialization in systems engineering will be a plus. You have a minimum of 5 years of work experience within product development and you have a solid experience with driving process improvements. Ideally, you have acquired this experience in a larger company or organization in a similar industry, where mechanics, electronics, software and user interfaces had to be integrated.
As interacting with multiple stakeholders is part of your day-to-day activities, we expect you to build and maintain relationships across the organization. You have excellent communication skills and a desire to influence people and processes. You are independent and decision-making comes naturally to you, as does the ability to think ahead and identify opportunities for improvement within your area of responsibility. You are flexible and ready to drive changes.
Experience in working within FDA regulated industries with agile development and methodology as well as infrastructure projects will be considered an advantage.

We are looking forward to receiving your application via our electronic recruitment system. Deadline for applications is 9 September 2019.
