  • Knowledge of ISO 13485, MDD, and preferably MDR is a plus.
  • You have excellent communication skills in English, spoken and written. Other languages are a plus.
  • You are flexible, and you have no problems with adapting new plans. Product development is fun, but also unpredictable.
  • You can handle pressure because honestly, we work hard.


Why should you apply? Our offer:

  • You will be joining a team of enthusiastic and passionate colleagues.
  • You will be working on the design and development of truly unique products and solutions, end-to-end. Yes, you can be an inventor! There is nothing more thrilling than seeing your work out there on the market.
  • Comate offers a broad portfolio of training and educational courses, allowing you to grow.
  • Comate is a fast-growing company, so you can grow with us and grow in your area of expertise or interest.
