Human Factors Engineer/Specialist

Human Factors Engineer/Specialist

Insight works on an exciting variety of medical devices 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 usability studies and our analyses is funneled to our design teams to ensure the design works well for the users they are intended for.

As the Senior HF Engineer, you will be responsible for applying human factors engineering methods throughout the design and development process for medical products. You will be responsible for planning and conducting usability evaluations, executing risk management strategies, and applying HF principles to improve the design of devices and interfaces. You have at least 3-5 years of industry experience in the medical device/healthcare industry, working in an human factors capacity.

  • You have a strong sense of good design and are able to recognize it when it has been achieved. Your attention to detail means that the little things that make a difference in a design do not escape your attention.
  • You are able to develop, support, and defend design recommendations because you have a solid grasp of human factors science and design principles. You can design and run controlled usability studies. You are an excellent writer.
  • You possess strong analytical tendencies that allow you to hypothesize ways users can do things incorrectly and foresee the consequences of doing so.
  • You are a lifelong learner, take initiative to improve the process, and can think for yourself.

Responsibilities and Duties

  • Work with clients to plan, manage, and execute HF activities
  • 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 (e.g. use FMEA)
  • Work with consumers and designers to evaluate concepts and existing products for improvement opportunities

Qualifications and Skills

  • Have passion, creativity, and ability necessary to solve challenging user and technical problems
  • Minimum BS or BSE in Human Factors, Ergonomics, Industrial Engineering, Cognitive Psychology or extensive formal education in human factors related areas*
