The technologies we develop enable drug-delivery for respiratory, biologic, biosimilar and injectable products, and we work across Mylan to support innovative technology solutions to deliver healthcare to our patients.

Make a Difference

At Mylan, each person has the ability to make a difference. From the providers who sell and market our products to the producers who develop and manufacture them and finally to our business partners who support the providers and producers, we all have a mission critical role.

An exciting opportunity has arisen within Mylans Global Device Development which is a diverse team of highly specialised engineers and scientists responsible for the design, industrialisation and testing of medical devices and drug delivery systems across Mylans global portfolio. Risk Management at the user interface is a key element in the development of our products.

Your role will be vital to the development program from concept through to regulatory submission and product lifecycle management. At the beginning of a development program, your role will be to contribute to the Device Design and Development and Risk Management Plans, develop the user-related Design Inputs and lead user-focussed Risk Assessments. Through your understanding of the intended use, foreseeable misuse and therapeutic benefit of the drug delivery device, medical device or medical technology you will collaborate with Human Factors Engineers, Design Engineers, Clinicians and Pharmacovigilance teams to analyse, evaluate, mitigate and control risks at the user interface in line with international standards and our Quality Management System.

The Risk Manager will be monitoring, investigating and reporting through the risk management program design outputs such as formative usability outcomes and clinical complaints. You will be closely monitoring the competitor landscape and will provide a regular review of medical device reports and product recalls.

You will be responsible for the delivery of design input documentation to meet the timelines of the stage-gate design review process and will be a key contributor to the resulting regulatory submissions, reporting the culmination of the device risk management program through the final risk benefit analysis.

We are looking for a candidate who is a Subject Matter Expert in the application of FDA and EU regulations and international standards related to Design Control, user interface and risk management. Who is interested in maintaining an awareness of the device development landscape and who has the technical drive and confidence to represent Mylan in the external environment.
