Dutch technology, global impact

SPEKTRAX is moving fast. We are looking for new colleagues who don't ask us what to do but who will actively help us achieve our goals. Are you interested in being part of something big? Want to change the world for millions around the globe by providing new, faster and reliable diagnostics? This is your chance to not just make a tremendous impact on a national level, but on the global health issues that we are currently all facing. Ready to join Spektrax?


Your personal mission 

To make sure we have a ‘smooth’ path to bringing our test to the market, we are actively looking for our Product Development Manager. You will be responsible for a multidisciplinary product including consumables, integration with existing hardware, data modelling and machine learning. We need to be able to trust you to deliver and be self-propelling. Even though we never really know what the day will bring, we do have some key responsibilities that we would like you to take upon:

  • Providing project management and hands-on support to the technical, analytical and clinical validation; quality control and assurance, bioinformatics, regulatory, and manufacturing aspects. Compliance according to ISO 13485 and other relevant standards.
  • Provide leadership in the development and coordination of a multidisciplinary team, defining key deliverables, milestones, dependencies, according to the Design and Development plan.
  • Supervise creation of design control documentation that meet standards required for inclusion in required regulatory dossiers.

You will also be working closely together with our cross-functional teams to ensure alignment on a clear roadmap. You will be involved in a lot of what is happening in the company so confidentiality and discretion are crucial characteristics we are looking for.
