Walk With Path (WWP) is an award winning startup based in Copenhagen with a mission to improve mobility and reduce the risk of falls for elderly and people with chronic disease. With one medical device on the market in Europe and another in research and development we are a fast-moving company. We are looking for an electronic engineer with skills and interests in user experience design to join the team.

Due to the nature of being in a startup, we are looking for a highly motivated candidate with broad skills and interests, who are able to juggle several tasks simultaneously.

The main task will be the design and complete development of the electronics to be embedded in our second product: Path Feel. It is a Bluetooth Low Energy connected insole that provides vibrational feedback to the soles of people at risk of falls, such as those with peripheral neuropathy, who are unable to feel the ground properly due to a sensory deficit, or those with general balance issues. By amplifying the sense of touch of the feet to the ground, users are able to identify accurately when their feet touch the ground, thereby reducing the sense of imbalance as well as incidence of falls.

Key responsibilities and required skills:
- Schematic design
- PCB design and routing
- Embedded electronics
- Components selection based on data datasheet
- I2C, SPI, flash
- Battery consumption optimisation and management
- Experience with Bluetooth Low Energy chips and antennas
- Worked on CE marked product
- Familiar with IEC60601 and EMF requirements
- Firmware development (C/C++) is a plus
- Experience with Bluetooth Low Energy profiles is a plus
- Experience with IMU (accelerometer, gyroscope) sensor is a plus
- Experience working within a Quality Management System (QMS) is a plus
- Experience with medical devices is a plus
- Experience with laser devices is a plus

- Opportunity to join a growing start-up
- Opportunity to learn a wide variety of skills and experience daily life in a health tech startup
- Opportunity to advance quickly as the company grows
