Case Study - Finding that perfect candidate for a medtech and medical devices incubator

A medical device incubator approached us in search of a principal design quality engineer for a Class III combination device. The ideal candidate would need a range of qualifications, including a deep understanding of combination drug-devices and expertise in designing a variety of implantable medical devices. However, the financial resources for the role were limited, and no relocation package was on offer. Given our comprehensive local insight as medical device recruiters, we were aware of the task's difficulty. However, we were able to locate the ideal candidate and successfully persuade them to take the position.

  1. The organizational culture was a perfect match.
  2. The device he was set to work on was thrilling and at the forefront of technology.
  3. Instead of a hefty salary, he was offered a share in the product's equity.
