For a start-up company active in the diagnostics industry, we are looking for a Senior System Architect. This company develops innovative diagnostic systems that are able to detect diseases in the early stages. This increases the survival rates, improves healthcare, and reduces costs.


As a Senior System Architect, it’s your mission to deliver robust innovation, ready for certification and launch onto the market. You have a vision and proven leadership, but you specifically want to work in a start- or scale-up environment where you get your hands dirty yourself. You make sure that the separate projects of designing and developing hardware and software are robust, and that the interrelationships between them are carefully managed to deliver one solid integrated product. Your software/hardware developments will be implemented into a sleek and easy to use medical device. Your core tasks will be developing, delivering, deploying, and maintaining hardware products with embedded software in a medical device.

Your tasks will include but will not be limited to:

  • Development of the overall innovation strategy
  • Identify risks and design solutions upfront
  • Analysis, design, and implementation of specifications
  • Ensure high-quality, robust, and easy-to-maintain hardware that complies with medical device requirements and relevant quality standards
  • Developing, testing and integrating codes
  • Defining and communicating software design consequences for architectural and requirement choices


Our ideal candidate should have:

  • Multiple years of experience in a medical environment and their regulations
  • Master or PhD in electronics, mechatronics or related
  • A genuine interest in technology, programming and a passion for it.
  • Experience with C++ and microcontrollers
  • Experience working together on a variety of methodologies for projects (Agile, Waterfall, V-model)
  • IoT experience would be a pré
  • Dutch would be a distinct advantage


The organisation can offer you the following:

  • Salary between €4,200.- and €6,200.- per month (this range is flexible, salary will depend on experience, etc.)
  • A chance to develop yourself in a fast-growing organisation
  • Chance to contribute to one of the biggest innovations against COVID-19
  • Pension plan
  • Paid travel expenses
