Job Description
Senior Staff Systems Integration Engineer

At first glance, youll see that for more than 80 years weve been dedicated to advancing and optimizing the laboratory to move science and healthcare forward. Join a team where you can be heard, be supported, and always be yourself. Were building a culture that celebrates backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives of all our associates. Look again and youll see we are invested in you, providing the opportunity to build a meaningful career, be creative, and try new things with the support you need to be successful.

Beckman Coulter Diagnostics is proud to work alongside a community of six fellow Diagnostics Companies at Danaher. Together, were working at the pace of change to improve patient lives with diagnostic tools that address the worlds biggest health challenges.

The Senior Staff Systems Integration Engineer for Beckman Coulter Diagnostics is responsible for defining and leading the system-level control logic architecture, and for supporting the integration activities and associated development efforts of our next-generation hematology analyzers. This person is an integral member of the New Product Development team comprised of Systems, EE, ME, FW and SW SMEs.

This position is located in Miami, FL with the Hematology Business Unit, and is on-site. At Beckman Coulter, our vision is to relentlessly reimagine healthcare, one diagnosis at a time.

You will work within the Systems Engineering team and report to the Director of Engineering, New Product Development responsible for leading design tasks that create novel hardware, fluidics and electronics, and for integrating these systems, along with reagents and algorithms, into world-class clinical diagnostics analyzers. If you thrive in an amazing, innovation-oriented, challenging role and want to work to build an amazing systems engineering and test organizationread on.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Define the strategy and build the architecture and code which support the hardware control logic and manual/automated workflows of new hematology analyzers.

  • Drive and evaluate resulting system performance, speed and throughput, and identify root causes for system-level issues, latencies and resource conflicts between Hardware, Firmware, Software and Reagents.

  • Contribute to DFMEA, risk management, hazard assessment and design review sessions with Engineering and Systems teams. Analyze outputs and identify HW, FW and SW mitigating solutions to implement adequate risk control measures.

  • Refine system architecture and module dependencies, and implement a comprehensive approach for scripting and programing, to address event handling, error reporting, system recovery, and telemetry data collection and analysis, working along FW and SW engineering teams. Guarantee high quality of technical documentation in alignment with Beckman Coulters processes to ensure a successful transition to Manufacturing, and Global Support.

  • Define validation plans and test complex modules and systems, ensuring that components of the system are integrated from low-level HW to top-level UI and function as a whole. Adopt a hands-on approach to troubleshoot engineering prototypes in their successive iterations and releases.

The essential requirements of the job include:

  • Bachelors degree with 12+ years minimum direct work experience, or Masters degree with 10+ years minimum direct work experience in a related Engineering discipline (Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Systems Engineering).

  • Expertise in the design, development, system integration, testing and maturation of Medical Diagnostics / Life Sciences / Analytical / Scientific Instrumentation, or complex systems incorporating a mix of fluidics, electro-mechanical and optical hardware, electronics, firmware, embedded computers and software.

  • Thorough understanding of system architecture and sub-system dependencies, and of risk analysis, mitigation and controls, relating to instrument control logic, dynamic time allocation, hardware synchronization and resource sharing.

  • Demonstrated, relevant experience in the definition, programing and deployment of architecture and strategies for HW/FW/SW event logging, fault prevention and detection, error reporting and handling, user messaging, system recovery and resolution.

  • Proficiency in coding (e.g., Visual Studio, C#, C++, Python), hardware testing and troubleshooting, as well as in simulation, data processing (e.g., MATLAB, Mathcad), root cause analysis and reporting, in order to demonstrate system performance, throughput optimization and risk mitigation effectiveness.

It would be a plus if you also possess skills, experience or knowledge related to:

  • Fluidics, precision liquid handling, automation and associated hardware and sensors.

  • Definition, planning and execution of multi-cycle integration test, risk retirement and characterization activities in an Agile environment against tight schedules and deadlines.

  • Statistical data analysis and reporting software, such as JMP, Minitab, or Excel statistics macros.

  • A proven ability to apply fundamental scientific and engineering principles to evaluate processes and offer practical solutions to technical challenges is also strongly desired.
