DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson is the largest, most innovative and comprehensive orthopaedic and neurological business in the world. DePuy Synthes Companies will offer an unparalleled breadth and depth of products, services and programs in the areas of joint reconstruction, trauma, spine, sports medicine, neurological, craniomaxillofacial, power tools and biomaterials. Building on the legacy and strengths of two great companies, we are creating one organization that will be agile and better equipped in today's evolving health care environment. With a focus on activating insights to develop innovative, comprehensive solutions, we are inspired to advance patient care in greater ways than either company could accomplish on its own.
DePuy Synthes Spine is the Spine business offering a comprehensive portfolio of spinal care solutions for the treatment of the most simple to the most complex spine disorders using traditional and minimally invasive techniques.
The Computer Science Engineer will report to the Adjacent Technologies Director. In this newly created position, the Engineer will provide technical direction and leadership in exploration, discovery, evaluation and early stage product development for computer aided diagnostic and surgical systems. The candidate will exercise independent judgment in evaluating and developing innovative computer based systems and tools; designing, developing, implementing and testing computer-based hardware and software. Design networks that connect computer systems, image guided surgery, hospital and OR equipments and work on integrating software programs with computer hardware. Create methods and assessment criteria related to relevant new technologies. Establish computerized system architectures to extend the state of the art in patient care management from operating room performance & efficiency to patient outcome and surgical intervention precision. Analyze, tune and prototype key applications the system architectures, including operating room data management, visualization, computer simulation, medical imaging, radiation-tracking, to name just a few. Activities will include system design, prototyping, design of experiments for optimization of systems architecture, health informatics, and IT integrated tools, instruments and OR capital equipment. Provides technical leadership to project teams from charter to launch for highly complex products; demonstrates the ability to execute complex, multi-disciplinary technical projects; develops corresponding patent strategies.
