Director of Product Development - mHUB | Chicago, IL

Director of Product development

  NoMo Diagnostics is a concussion detection platform company spun out of Columbia University leveraging a brain-computer interface that will identify brain injury in real-time as contact sport athletes and military personnel encounter mechanical forces to the head that may lead to trauma. The technology enabled by novel biosensors, a miniaturized quantitative electroencephalogram, and integrated software with telemetry functionality will monitor brain health and send an alert to the sideline or military command when a concussion is detected. We are pursuing an FDA approval for the technology.

In this position you will have responsibility for coordinating overall product design, project scope, features, and functional requirements. You will maintain interface with academic co-founders, external contract developers, and internal team to ensure smooth development through all tested phases (system integration, verification, and validation). Your compliance to current medical device design control guidance is critical to the ultimate regulatory approval of the product.

Factors for success in this role are directly linked to taking in user-centered research, translating into design specifications while ensuring regulatory requirements are met. A deep appreciation for protecting patient information through a combination of device and companion software with secure data management is essential.

Additionally, you will be challeneged to grow the intellectual property portfolio of the company and serve as the Primary Investigator for a Department of Defense grant.
