Sr. Systems Engineer RSS (Sequencing)

The Sr. System Engineer at Roche Sequencing Solutions (RSS) will be part of the System Development & Integration team focusing on development of a next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform.
Primary responsibilities include requirements management, risk management, and  formal verification and validation of IVD medical systems. The range of projects includes but not limited to internally developed products, collaborating with external partners , or outsourced development projects. In all cases, the System Engineer III will be responsible for coherence and compliance of the system development with RSS systems engineering principles and processes.

Work closely with various subsystems to define the top-level system specifications, allocate requirements to the subsystems, calculate the error budget, define and resolve interfaces and working parameters for the optimal system performance.
Requirements management: Maintain requirements hierarchy and traceability, horizontal and vertical. ( HPALM/RETINA)
Risk Management: develop system risk portfolio/FMEA/PFMEA and manage all risk reduction activities to ensure full compliance with both Roche internal risk management processes and ISO 14971
