An exceptional team

StarFish Medical careers ensure you will be part of an award-winning, multi-disciplinary development team which prides itself on delivering elegant solutions, exceptional customer service and final products which enable our customers commercial success.

We believe in good people and we may hire a great fit even if we don’t have an opening today. If we don’t have work for you now, we may in the future and so we’d love to meet you and stay in touch.

We hire:

  • Mechanical Engineers. We are always interested in speaking with mechanical engineers with a proven ability to design and make systems that work and/or understand the mechanical world around them in practical terms. The greater your skill level in SolidWorks, the better.
  • Electrical Engineers. Do you have a proven ability to design and make circuits that actually work?  We are looking for people who are experienced at soldering and at fixing their mistakes – we all make them. The greater your skill level in Altium, the better.
  • Firmware Engineers. We are looking for people who can create structured code that runs and can be maintained by others. The more experience with Cortex M platform, the better.
  • Software Engineers. As the FDA says, software is different. If you want to learn how software can make patients safer and better protected (or if you already know), we’d like to hear from you. If you’re interested, we have challenging work designing effective algorithms and processing imaging data. The more of the stack that you can work with, the better.
  • Industrial Designers. If you believe that the human factor is vital and that form and function go best together, we agree. The more real, shipped products in your portfolio, the better.
  • Technical Project Managers. Our project managers keep our customer satisfaction score high while delivering on budget. They have learned the principles of project management through practice, and may or may not be certified. They also have the technical insight to ensure a good solution for our clients.

We employ physicists, engineering physicists, biochemists, microbiologists, and system engineers. All of whom have demonstrated they can help produce and deliver quality medical devices for our clients.

We hire a range of experience levels: from early career (with real demonstrated evidence of practical achievement) to very senior level professionals. If you are early in your career and you’ve had ample opportunities to fully apply what you learned at university, or you are more senior and you miss the excitement of doing design (and you still feel you have a lot to offer), please get in touch with us.

As a consultancy, our clients expect great things from us. Our teams work together in a highly focused manner to ensure our clients are more than satisfied. Our hiring is highly flexible – we engage full-time employees, contractors (fixed duration and as-needed) and on-call staff.

If you’ve read this far and are intrigued by StarFish Medical careers and believe you have what we’re looking for, then drop us a line with your resume and a covering letter.  Let’s start a conversation!

Find us on Glassdoor.


We also seek innovative and dedicated professionals from a wide range of backgrounds to complement our fulltime team on a contracting basis. To apply, please submit a cover letter outlining your interest, availability and rate to [email protected].
