311 Biomedical Algorithms Engineer

By joining the Kardium team, you can help make a difference in the lives of millions around the world. Kardium is developing a ground breaking medical device for the minimally-invasive diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation, a heart condition that can cause strokes, heart failure, and other heart-related complications.

­As our Biomedical Algorithms Engineer, you will join Kardium’s Cardiac Mapping Team in designing, developing, and evaluating algorithms to turn raw data into actionable information for physicians. You will support the development of 3-dimensional maps used by electrophysiologists during cardiac ablation procedures, using a wealth of electrical, anatomical, and spatial information as inputs. You would have the opportunity to bring your creative and innovative ideas to help Kardium achieve its goal of helping improve people’s lives.

What you’ll do…

  • Apply scientific investigation methods to drive product innovations in mapping and navigation algorithms.
  • Design, implement, and evaluate algorithmic approaches to meet clinical needs related to navigation, electrophysiology, and ablation
  • Systematically analyze large multivariate data sets of electrophysiological, anatomical, spatial, and procedural data
  • Act as an independent problem-solver, finding ways to connect customer-facing deliverables to appropriate technical problem statements and solutions
  • Design experiments to evaluate the performance of new algorithms
  • Supplement algorithmic analysis with occasional hands-on, benchtop data collection
  • Advance Kardium’s intellectual property by contributing to our patent portfolio
  • Communicate experiments, analyses, and results to teammates and senior leadership

What you bring to the team…

Our Kardium team is smart, creative, and passionate about creating cutting-edge medical devices to help improve people’s lives. We work within a collaborative environment based on trust and respect. And we understand that only by working together can we solve the unsolvable. You bring to the team these characteristics, plus:

  • Either a bachelor’s or a graduate degree in engineering, physics, or equivalent
  • Minimum 3 years of experience in research or development within a high-technology field; experience with algorithmic design preferred, experience with medical devices or equivalent an asset
  • Extensive experience with programming for data analysis; emphasis on MATLAB or Python; experience with object-oriented programming, source control, and Java are also assets
  • Strong understanding of foundational topics in applied mathematics including calculus, linear algebra, and statistics
  • Familiarity with a selection of advanced topics in applied mathematics that support clinical algorithm design; these topics could include:
    • Signal processing (e.g. Fourier analysis, FIR and IIR filters, wavelet analysis)
    • Three-dimensional tracking/navigation, point clouds, or computational geometry
    • Machine learning (e.g. regression, classification, clustering, dimensionality reduction) or optimization
    • Multivariate statistics
    • Image processing, medical imaging, or computer vision
  • Effective written and verbal communication of technical subject matter
  • Knowledge of cardiac electrophysiology and/or the biophysics of ablation is an asset
