Electro-Acoustic Developer

Do you have a passion for technology and are you interested in developing high-tech products? Then look at this exciting career opportunity at Oticon Medical!


About us
Oticon Medical is committed to improve the life-quality of hearing patients with a profound hearing disability. We develop implantable medical devices and surgical techniques to compensate a severe hearing loss. As a member of one of the world’s largest groups of hearing health care companies, we share a close link with Oticon and direct access to the latest advancements in hearing research and technologies. Our competencies span more than a century of innovations in sound processing and decades of pioneering experience in hearing implant technology.


Join the entire development process
In this position, you will be part of our R&D department at our headquarters in Smørum close to Copenhagen. We are a team of Electronic, Acoustic and Mechanical Engineers. You will focus on developing our bone anchored hearing systems and be involved in the entire electro-acoustic development process. Your area of responsibility will thus cover all steps from initial specification to design and implementation of electronic and acoustic solutions and finally handover for mass-production. You will get a chance to design electronic platforms against challenging requirements, with the assistance from experienced colleagues and modern lab-facilities. Another important part of your job will be simulation tasks. We are expanding our Finite Element simulation capabilities within acoustics and vibrations, and you will play a big role here. And last, but most important of all – you can influence our products and leave your fingerprint on current and future projects. We are excited to get your input and hear about your ideas.


Hands-on tasks
Your main tasks will be to design, characterize and verify electronic solutions through a combination of hands-on simulation and physical laboratory testing on prototypes. You will identify and select the electronic and acoustic components, taking into consideration design requirements, availability, and obsolescence. Together with the team you will conduct DFMEA to evaluate reliability and safety of the electronic and acoustic design. Furthermore, our Finite Element simulations cover virtual proof of design for our BAHS sound processors, including transducers and surrounding acoustics. And last, you will define and specify test for product verification and mass production.


Your backpack
You come with a degree in Electronic Engineering either straight from university and with a big interest in hands-on simulation tasks, or with some years of work experience. You like to define and plan your own tasks and have an analytical and structured approach to problem solving. As we are a networking community, you should like to share your knowledge and ideas with the team. Furthermore, you can tick off several of the following competencies:

  • Knowledge in designing analog and mixed electronic circuits with strong constraints (interference, integration, very low power consumption, high performance, reliability, etc.)
  • Knowledge of EMI and EMC aspects 
  • Knowledge of reliability and safety aspects
  • Creating electronic schematics using Cadence software 
  • Knowledge in acoustic and vibrations
  • Knowledge and capability in Finite Element simulations
  • Working in a medical or other highly regulated environments 


We would like to meet you!
