The position

In order to help Cochlear bring new products to market that help people with hearing loss, we are recruiting for a Senior Manager, Electrical in the Sound Processors & Accessory R&D department. This department designs and develops the sound processors and related accessories that combine with the implanted and other components to create cochlear implants and hearing systems.

Key to this role will be your ability to lead and engage a team of experienced electrical engineers leveraging your broad engineering and managerial experience.

It is preferred that you have actual knowledge and experience with both medical devices and consumer centred products. As our hearing implant products have a unique application you will be challenged to solve unique technical challenges that come with very small, low-power devices requiring high reliability.

You will work collaboratively with product managers, systems engineers, quality engineers and regulatory colleagues to bring new product concepts from technical feasibility through the product innovation process to commercialisation.

In addition you will be responsible for helping Cochlear deliver its product strategy while continuing to develop the capability of the team and define its future.

Candidate profile

Medical devices or defence, then you will understand and appreciate the level of engineering discipline, change control and documentation required to be successful in our environment.

Marrying these requirements with bringing innovative products to market in a timely manner creates a fantastic opportunity for the right person.

To be considered you'll be able to demonstrate the following skills and experience:

  • Tertiary qualifications in Electrical Engineering or equivalent with minimum of 15 years work experience. Ideally at least 10 years of experience in design and development in a highly regulated industry
  • Relevant qualification or equivalent experience in Engineering Management
  • Applied knowledge of analogue and digital electrical hardware design

  • Experience with electrical CAD tools - schematic capture, simulation and PCB layout.
  • Good understanding of hardware and software design and development methodologies for low power, high-reliability application
  • Knowledge of electrical requirements and standards
  • Commitment to engaging and developing team members through challenging and rewarding work

If you enjoy solving novel and complex problems, applying the highest standards of engineering principles, working cross-functionally, leading teams and belonging to an organisation with a strong mission to help people around the world, then this could be a great career opportunity for you.
