Job description

Holland Innovative’s Medtech team specializes in supporting companies in the development & production of medical devices in accordance with the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and/or the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR). The goal of our team is to excel in launching new and reliable innovations that contribute to the quality of life. We strengthen the project teams of clients with competencies such as project management, quality assurance, regulatory affairs and Design for Six Sigma methodologies. Because of our integrated and pragmatic approach, we are distinctive in the market. A good example of this is our new training Fundamentals in Medical Device Development, in which we share our knowledge on how to build a safe medical device, within time and budget.

As a QA-RA specialist, you help the customer with what they need to organize the processes and documentation in the organization in such a way that the products developed are safe, work as intended and comply with applicable regulations. Because we work for many different companies, it is a very varied job. One day you work on the documentation for the production of a Corona-speed-test under the IVDR, the next day you support a team in risk analysis for innovation in the field of ultrasound.
