Job Description

We are currently working with a rapidly expanding medical devices business who are looking for an experienced Quality Engineer to join their fast-paced Global Operations team in Amsterdam.

This exciting role has come about due to growth, and our US based client is looking for a Senior Quality Engineer to work autonomously from their Netherlands facility as they look to expand their import offering to the EU. The successful candidate will be a driven, self-starting individual with at least 3-4 years’ experience of quality assurance in a highly regulated environment, ideally with an understanding of EU Medical Device Regulations.


Senior Quality Engineer, Amsterdam, Noord Holland


Reporting into the Quality Assurance department, as Senior Quality Engineer, you will be expected to liaise with internal and external customers and act as an escalation point for all EU queries. You will be responsible for championing quality assurance processes and procedures and will play a key part in the implementation of quality assurance systems across the EU sites for complaints and inspections. This is a great opportunity for growth and development within a business that is embarking on an exciting time of international expansion, meaning there is plenty of scope for progression.


As a Senior Quality Engineer, we are looking for candidates of a high calibre with the following skillsets:

  • Ideally 3+ years’ experience in a similar role in a highly regulated environment (preferably medical devices)
  • Fluent in English, both verbal and written
  • Knowledge of ISO standards for Class II medical devices preferable (ISO 13485, 14971)
  • Ability to communicate efficiently and effectively with all levels within Quality as well as cross functionally with departments such as Manufacturing, Engineering and Purchasing
  • Working knowledge of electronic quality management systems and/or manufacturing execution (ERP) systems
  • Educated to degree or equivalent level. Relevant professional qualification is also advantageous (ASQ Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) or Certified Quality Auditor (CQA) certification desired)


This is a position suited to an individual with an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to work proactively and autonomously. In return, this is a fantastic opportunity to further your career in quality assurance as an instrumental part of the EU team.
