1. Experience with medical devices. Experience outside of bio-tech is believed to contaminate candidates.
2. American Society of Quality certified quality engineer. Or, for employers dumb enough to believe the Toyota Institute is owned by the Toyota Corporation and teaches their quality practices, a blackbelt certification.
3. Fluent in Mandarin
4. Fluent in Spanish
5. Experience getting FDA approval for a medical device.
