Job Description

Spacer Image
Our client, an RTP-based company that is developing a growing portfolio of dermatological products, is actively recruiting for a highly knowledgeable, focused and can-do Quality Engineer for key role on its top-notch team.

Key things to note:
• This is a hybrid role contributing to both product design/development and process development Quality efforts. Seek candidate with exposure to both. Design History Files, Validation, Process Transfer all required
• These are combination products – primarily semi-solid products that are delivered using pumps, tubes, etc. Experience with combination products or medical devices would be important
• This is an emerging company in which strategies, policies and practices are still being developed. This Engineer will be instrumental in creating the blueprint that others will follow
• This is a highly analytical role. Ability to use statistical techniques to perform Quality functions will be critical

The focus of the role will be to perform product, process and equipment validations/qualification, medical device design and development document writing and review, and other quality related activities.

Specific responsibilities will include:
• Own the Change Control Program, providing technical expertise as well as partnering with other functions to assure timely and effective change management.
• Act as Quality Representative and primary reviewer on design and development projects
• Develop, deploy and execute validation programs and procedures, including scheduling and maintaining the requalification and periodic review program
• Work closely with Process Engineers to develop, perform, review and approve process, test method and equipment validation/qualifications, including software and automation/controls
• Perform product and process evaluations to identify areas for improvement.
o Recommend solutions to identified problems
o Implement approved changes using sound quality engineering principles
o Fully document requirements
• Oversee and provide technical input for method development, qualification [measurement system analysis (MSA's)], as well as method transfer for all critical performance test methods.
• Support Risk Assessment activities including User-, Design-, and Process- FMEAS in order to proactively identify and mitigate risks through appropriate control strategies and risk mitigation
• Participate in design reviews and provide expert Quality/technical input to ensure potential problems are identified and corrected early in development to minimize negative impact
• Provide supervision for contract validation resources as needed to support the business

Ideal candidate will offer a related degree and 6+ years handling similarly challenging work in a combination product, medical device or related setting. Other priorities include:
• In-depth knowledge of 21 CFR P Part 4, Part 11, Parts 210/211, Part 820
• Expertise in quality systems, validation principles, Computer Systems and engineering design fundamentals
• Extensive experience controlling Design History Files
• Strong statistical skill sets (i.e., Minitab, SAS, etc.)
• Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) preferred Certified Six Sigma Green/Black Belt or equivalent preferred
• Familiarity with “lean” manufacturing principles and the use of appropriate Quality principles.
• Longevity and impact in previous positions

Finally and critically, we seek a hands-on, get-things-done leader. This is a dynamic, empowered, collaborative and mission-driven setting. We seek a highly skilled overachiever who will thrive

This is an immediate need and a critical need. Client will pay top dollar to attract and retain a star.

Please forward Word resume for prompt consideration. Local candidates only.
