We are a non-profit organization building an infrastructure to develop, manufacture, distribute and operate oxygen concentrators designed to address the specific challenges of developing countries. These devices will be distributed on a charitable basis. For our Mission we need your help. If you are motivated by the description below, we encourage you to apply for this opportunity using our internal system at http://jira.ardenmed.com/plugins/servlet/loginfreeRedirMain?portalid=16&request=136

Your Impact

As a Technical Writer you will be working together with engineers of various backgrounds to put together clear and precise documentation that will be submitted to FDA and other regulatory bodies. Strong documentation articles are a vital part of our mission to succeed as we otherwise will not be able to receive regulatory approval which in turn will prevent us from delivering our device to those who need it. On top of that, the documents you produce will be used to communicate requirements between engineers which will facilitate better and more innovative solutions. As a technical writer you will therefor have the opportunity to apply your technical expertise to a wide array of different subjects and practice your ability to put concepts into words with the highest degree of precision while working with interesting people from all over the world.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of the world's medical workforce fighting COVID-19


Every Year 4.2 million children under 5 are desperate for oxygen. 800,000 mothers lose their child every year because of Pneumonia, a lung disease often requiring oxygen. This toll is higher than for any other disease in the world. What hospitals in the US and Europe consider one of the most essential treatments is not available for many. The problem, oxygen concentrators keep breaking down in the high humidity, temperature and dust environments, burn through during energy spikes when the power comes back online after one of the many outages or simply breaks and nobody knows how to repair it.

We have set out to change this and develop an oxygen concentrator that will make public health investments much more effective. Our first calculations suggest that we could lower the cost of a child's life by as much as two-thirds. Due to our organization working with volunteers we can reduce the development cost but bringing a medical device to market is hard work and we expect that you meet the requirements and are responsive and transparent with your skills and availability. If our mission sounds important and exciting to you, learn more about us on www.ardenmed.com and apply for one of our open positions through our platform! http://jira.ardenmed.com/plugins/servlet/loginfreeRedirMain?portalid=16&request=136
