Sorry, this job has expired.

 fnljs2301g.pngAbout the Department

The New Platform Development department is a project organisation, which resides in the intersection of Conceptual Research and Life Cycle Management. Our department is a part of Novo Nordisk Device Research & Development, which is the area responsible for the development of medical devices for medical self-treatment within all business areas of Novo Nordisk A/S. In our department, we have been on a journey for the past 6 years, where we have moved from research into a phase where we are now product developing and upscaling. Our main aim is to further advance our offerings to people living with diabetes or other chronical diseases and their healthcare professionals through new technologies.

You will join a young, dynamic, international, innovative environment, where highly skilled professionals work closely together to develop next generation medical devices.

The Job

As our new Risk Manager, your main responsibilities will include the establishment of risk analyses and documentation of development processes to ensure that the device is safe and can be approved by regulatory bodies as well as preparing device documentation for submission with health authorities. Within all tasks, you will be expected to work with a large range of internal and external stakeholders, and you will play an important role in connecting these stakeholders across professional areas of expertise.

In other words, you will take part in driving our risk management activities ranging from risk analyses to submission of documentation and an important aspect of this is to take responsibility for the continuous improvement of our processes aiming at making sure that they are as simple as they can be, without compromising on quality. To succeed in the role, you need to thrive with close dialogues and coordination with many stakeholders combined with conducting thorough risk analyses.


You hold a master’s degree or equivalent within engineering. You may be a newly graduated talent with a personal journey that reflects high passion and ambition, but preferably you have 2-3 years of relevant work experience within risk assessments within medical devices. Experience from working in a highly regulated industry, e.g. pharmaceuticals or medico, automotive, aerospace, and aviation is not required, but preferred.
As a person, you have a collaborative mind-set and use your great interpersonal skills to communicate openly, reach out to stakeholders across the organisation and facilitate meetings and workshops in order to reach decisions and ensure progress. You thrive on being detail-oriented while being able to see the bigger picture.

Professional proficiency within oral and written English is essential.
