Project Description

Quality Control Engineer-Device Manufacturing
United States
At Lilly, we unite caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world. We are a global healthcare leader headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our 39,000 employees around the world work to discover and bring life-changing medicines to those who need them, improve the understanding and management of disease, and give back to our communities through philanthropy and volunteerism. We give our best effort to our work, and we put people first. We’re looking for people who are determined to make life better for people around the world.
As a Quality Control Engineer you will act as a program owner for Engineering Studies which are used to assess the capabilities of equipment and devices used in device manufacturing processes. You will develop common templates, methodologies, and training materials to ensure studies are effectively designed and executed. Your review, analyze and summarized results of studies will determine final capabilities of equipment and devices.

In this role, you will technically profile the methodologies and capabilities of the equipment vendors to effectively support new line development and ongoing operations. You will work with management to assess, understand and develop OEM capabilities to better meet Device Manufacturing needs.

You will provide technical leadership in early device manufacturing equipment development to identify and define processes for manual and automated equipment used in the support of new device assembly and packaging at Lilly and non-Lilly locations. Addition you will provide global SME leadership to Lilly sites, CM’s, and OEMs to ensure equipment process development and designs meet Lilly requirements for quality, safety, cost, and time.
