Working across technology and healthcare, you will lead complex product development projects addressing conditions such as epilepsy, sleep apnoea, Parkinson’s, tinnitus and chronic pain. You’ll not only develop Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMD), you’ll make them ready for transfer to manufacture.

The global innovation race within neurotechnology presents exciting new opportunities for medical device development. Your technical insights and operational oversight will help shape TTP’s strategy and bespoke consultancy solutions for clients in this niche.
