It's time to join Stryker!

We are a great place to work. Fortune, in association with Great Place to Work, named us among the World’s Best Workplaces. We ranked #10 out of the 25 companies on the list. This list highlights companies that have gone above and beyond to create a great workplace for employees all over the world. Fortune also named us one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in the United States. This is the ninth consecutive year we have been on the list, and we ranked #11 out of 100!

We aspire to create a place where hard work, humility, honesty, a sense of service and humor are the talk we walk. We are a very diverse group with an amazing set of experiences from bio-tech and high-tech companies. If that doesn't pique your interest, we’ve got scientists, motorcycle racers, some serious sailors, biking enthusiasts, whiteboard artists, videographers, mountain climbers, parents, triathletes, dog owners, avid runners, skiers and snowboarders. And we're always looking for players for our "awful"-ly fun summer volleyball tournament.

We combine laughter with intensity and focus. We have fantastic office space in the amazing Redmond-Woodinville Valley (yes, free parking), down the street from “Washington Wine Country”. We pay competitively, and offer full benefits to our Team Members.   

We are a market leader in emergency medical care, creating lifesaving tools for lifesaving teams. For example, our LIFEPAK brand is widely known by medical professionals in both hospital and pre-hospital emergency care settings. We design and build complex systems such as multiparameter physiological monitors, automated defibrillators, and technologies to assist with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Our internet-based system for moving emergent medical data was helping improve patient care before “cloud” was a computing buzz word.  As a team, we thrive on helping emergency responders everywhere save lives and make healthcare better.

  • You will collaborate with clinical researchers to measure real world algorithm performance and impact on clinical care.
  • You will partner with colleagues to write scientific publications and materials for regulatory submissions involving biomedical algorithms.
  • You will take technical responsibility for algorithms in current devices.

What You Need

  • Bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering or a science discipline required; advanced degree preferred.
