Guided Solutions connected with a young pre-commercialisation stage Start-up Medical Device Company based out of a relatively remote location in Norway. The company had developed a technology for use in ICU.
With further funding, trials and regulatory hoops to be jumped through, the company were looking to find an individual who would relish the challenge set out by the market conditions and the challenging timelines the company had set for reaching evolving milestones.
The primary function of the role was to develop the usability of the core technology where possible, overcome production scale-up difficulties, work with regulatory bodies to ensure that the product could enter the market smoothly. The search for an individual with the knowledge of technological development, regulatory procedure and the correct cultural outlook to work within this highly entrepreneurial environment proved to be challenging and rewarding in equal measure.
After a measured process, two candidates emerged with the blended skill-set necessary. After a final interview stage, one candidate edged the other through their consistent presentation of a deep desire to affect the client company and a value-adding strategic plan for achieving this.
