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

We design and build complex systems such as multiparameter physiological monitors, automated defibrillators, and technologies to assist with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
