Every six seconds someone dies from a stroke. Stroke can be caused either by a clot obstructing the flow of blood to the brain (ischemic stroke) or by a blood vessel rupturing and preventing blood flow to the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). CERENOVUS is committed to changing the trajectory of stroke by providing physicians with innovative technologies to push the boundaries of what’s possible in neurovascular intervention. CERENOVUS offers a broad portfolio of devices used in the endovascular treatment of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke.

The Engineer II will be responsible for aspects of the product design and development of a project with a focus on innovative medical devices that address the customer needs for a complete procedural solution.

The candidate will also be involved in test method development and testing of the proposed design.

The Engineer II will work with manufacturing engineering and suppliers to optimize designs for manufacturability and produce prototypes.
