Control Engineer (medior/senior)

Would you like to contribute to the wellbeing of patients, by creating an innovative microsurgical robot? You could be part of our inspiring team, which is dedicated to innovate surgery by developing a microsurgical robot device.

At Microsure in Eindhoven, we are developing a new first-of-a-kind microsurgery robot. By reducing the tremor and scaling down the movements of the surgeon, we aim to provide better surgical outcome.

Do you recognize yourself in or feel affinity with our company core values?

We Care, We Innovate, We are Confident, We are Open, We are Diverse and Inclusive.

The Control Engineer is an essential role within Microsure: Ensuring that the robot arms move quickly, reliably and with pinpoint accuracy to a desired location is the mission of the Control Team. The team is driven to solve many challenges such as singularity avoidance and forward kinematics. The Control Team works closely together with the Software Team.
