Job Description:
Job Title: Systems Verification Engineer II (Flow Cytometry Analyst)
Location: 2350 Qume Drive, San Jose, CA, 95131
Duration: 12 Months

  • The Systems Verification and Validation Engineer II is a hands-on testing and problem-solving role that will involve conducting experiments using flow cytometry.

  • The Systems Verification Engineer II will work closely with systems engineers and the product development team to enable the successful application and integration of hardware, reagents, and software in Client flow cytometry products, with emphasis on assessing the suitability of design architectures and features to meet the needs of the customer. He/She applies engineering, statistics, and scientific theory to measure and quantify performance of Client cell analysis products.
  • He/She will design, plan, and conduct experiments to assess the technical capability, feasibility, and performance of sub-systems and systems. This includes the development and execution of formal protocols, analysis and interpretation of results, and communication of results and their impact to the project and the customer through written reports, design reviews, and interactive discussions. The Engineer II identifies and pursues opportunities to facilitate more reliable and efficient verification and verification testing, such as automated test fixtures, simulation and analysis capabilities.


The successful candidate will possess:
  • For this position Flow cytometry experience is highly preferred but the other qualifications are a plus as well.
  • Requires a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree in an engineering, technology, or science field with a minimum of 2 years relevant experience or a combination of equivalent education and experience.
  • Typically requires a minimum of 2 years experience in product development, instrumentation development, medical devices, test engineering, or other relevant industry experience
  • Demonstrated knowledge and application of fundamental engineering concepts
  • Ability to quickly grasp the functionality and interdependencies of complex multidisciplinary systems, to include lasers, optics, fluidics, electro-mechanical devices, software, algorithms, biological samples, and biochemistry.
  • Apply systematic troubleshooting and debugging skills, practice in "systems thinking” problem solving approaches
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Ability to prepare and process biological samples in a wet-lab Biosafety Level 2 Laboratory
