Hillerød, Capital Region of Denmark, DK


Are you ready to play a key role in Novo Nordisks medical device development projects and help improve the life of our patients? In this position you will get a unique opportunity to use your engineering background to solve a wide range of challenges, as well as collaborate with many stakeholders across the Novo Nordisk organization.


The Job

  • You will take part in one or more cross-functional development projects based on one of our existing pen-injector platforms, securing the delivery of new variants to the market.
  • Your main responsibilities will include establishing safety risk analyses and documenting the safety risk management process. This is to ensure that the medical device is safe to use by patients and users, and can be approved by regulatory bodies.
  • You will also be involved in preparing the documentation for submission with health authorities, and support the subsequent regulatory interactions.
  • As part of playing a key role in a project team, you will also take part in project activity and risk planning, and be involved in the broader project discussions.
  • 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 aligning these stakeholders across professional areas of expertise.



  • Master’s degree or equivalent within engineering. Preferably you have experience from a medical device company or another regulated industry like Automotive, Aerospace or Pharmaceutical. But this could also be your first post-graduation full-time job.
  • As a person you are collaborative and use your great interpersonal skills to communicate openly, reach out to stakeholders across the organization, 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.


About the Department

In the Systems Engineering department we are approximately 20 highly skilled professionals and specialists divided into two teams, that have Safety Risk Management as the common denominator. Safety Risk Management underpins many aspects of medical device development, so our work is integrated into various processes within the development and manufacturing landscape, and our stakeholders have backgrounds in a variety of engineering and scientific disciplines. 


We are part of the Novo Nordisk Device Delivery Solutions unit, which is the organization responsible for the development of device solutions for medical self-treatment within all business areas of Novo Nordisk. In our department we have a wide range of development projects in different phases that we contribute to – from connected devices to purely mechanical pen- and auto-injectors.


Our main aspiration is to further advance our offerings to people living with chronic diseases and their healthcare professionals through new technologies.

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

At Novo Nordisk, we don’t wait for change. We drive it. We’re a dynamic company in an even more dynamic industry, and we know that what got us to where we are today is not necessarily what will make us successful in the future. We embrace the spirit of experimentation, striving for excellence without fixating on perfection. We never shy away from opportunities to develop, we seize them. From research and development, through to manufacturing, marketing and sales – we’re all working to move the needle on patient care.
