Jobs discoveries

Here, Sophysa’s own people tell you all about their roles within the company, what they do, and how they contribute to the business.

Methods and Industrialization Engineer

The Design Office designs a product. Our role is then to find the solutions to be able to manufacture the products while respecting the requirements of quality and the constraints of production.

My job is organized around three main missions which are:

• The definition of the means of production for new products
• Improvement of existing processes
• Production support

 

All of these processes have a strong impact on the quality of the product, so they must be validated in connection with the quality/validation team to ensure compliance with product requirements and reproducibility. Each product is identical even if it is made by different operators.

Manufacturing

Valve Manufacturing Operator

The work of the Valve Manufacturing Operator breaks down in ½ days, either morning or afternoon.

Each manufacturing operator follows a defined manufacturing process.

It is first necessary to follow the protocol of entry into a clean room, where a full specialist outfit is put on, and the operator then decontaminates their workstation.

The main operations for the manufacture of a valve are:

  • The setting of the rotors, which requires a lot of concentration.
  • The assembly of all parts.
  • Binocular control (microscope-like device) to ensure the cleanliness of parts.
  • The valve setting itself.

In parallel, it is necessary to make numerous tests to validate the operations carried out.

Product Development

Project manager at the Design Office

The Design Office’s role is to develop new products and change the design to improve its performance. Each project manager manages a range of products.

The project manager ensures the coordination of projects by supervising the project group on the three phases which make up a development cycle. These are:

  • The planning phase, during which the technical specifications must be drawn up
  • The design phase includes the integration of normative and regulatory constraints into the technical specifications. It is in this phase that the Design Office verifies the product performance
  • The industrialization: it is necessary to ensure the transfer of the data of design towards the service Methods.

Project Managers also coordinate all the activities of the Design Office as well as providing technical support for the sales and regulatory activities.

Regulatory Affairs

Regulatory Affairs Officer

The role of the Regulatory Affairs Officer is to ensure every part of the process and every product complies with all current international regulations. This includes compiling the technical documentation and creating or adapting it to the large target markets, and ensuring it complies with regulations in the individual countries. It manages product registrations in different countries according to these regulations.

Meanwhile, the Regulatory Affairs Manager conducts Materials vigilance when there is a report on any Sophysa product made by a user, usually a healthcare professional such as a neurosurgeon. That is, the issue is reported to the appropriate authorities in the country in which the incident took place and, depending on the case, the incident is then reported in other countries.

The Regulatory Affairs Officer also contributes to Internal Audits.

Gender Equality

Sophysa is committed to gender equality

Sophysa is fully committed to guaranteeing and maintaining professional equality between women and men, in particular through recruitment, training, and remuneration. No form of discrimination is practised during our recruitment process.

We are fully aware that recruitment is a major issue of professional equality. So at Sophysa, we guarantee that all applications will be processed with the aim of promoting equality and fairness.

Sophysa complies with the legal obligations concerning this principle of equity and its publication index in accordance with the texts in force.

Gender equality index

In accordance with the law on the freedom to choose one’s professional future, companies with 250 or more employees are required to calculate and publish a “gender equality index” since September 1st 2019. Sophysa was subject to this obligation from March 2020. 

However, we have implemented our own gender equality principles within the company for several years prior to that date, and have ensured our recruitment, promotion, training, and remuneration always takes into account the principle of professional equity.

Sophysa continues to fight against all forms of discrimination with the implementation of indicators and actions (studies, awareness-raising, etc), and are continually re-evaluating and updating our procedures to ensure everyone is treated fairly, regardless of their gender.

Given our continued success and rapid growth, we made the choice to further develop our actions in this area well ahead of the implementation of the legislation, rather than waiting for the legal deadline of March 2020 to set it up.

This tool for diagnosing possible differences and neutralizing them has been used in Sophysa since 2019.

The results obtained are satisfactory to date, although there are still improvements to be carried out. An internal action plan is being deployed.

The company’s results for 2020 are as follows:

-> 97/100 if the 5 criteria are taken into account (case of companies with more than 250 people)
-> 97/100 if the 4 criteria are taken into account (Sophysa case in accordance with the legal obligations of the company).
