Human Factors Engineer/Specialist

Insight’s teams work on an exciting variety of medical and health care products. If you’re inclined to think about how things aren’t designed quite right for users and have solutions to make it better, our opportunity might just be what you’re looking for.

Our Human Factors team takes an integrated approach to guide the development of intuitive and easy to use designs. The knowledge gained from our observational and simulated use research studies and our analyses is funneled to our design teams to ensure our products work well for the range of users, uses, and use environments that they are intended for.

  • You possess strong analytical tendencies that allow you to look at all the ways people can do things incorrectly and foresee the consequences of doing so. Your attention to detail means that the little things that make a difference in a design do not escape your attention. You are a lifelong learner, take initiative to improve the process, and can think for yourself.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Work within multi-disciplinary teams to develop solutions using human factors principles and methods to contribute human factors expertise to the development process
  • Analyze use workflows, goals, tasks, and experiences to identify user needs
  • Create and execute all components of usability studies
  • Conduct user-focused risk identification and assessment activities critical to medical device development efforts (e.g. use FMEA)
