A conversation with Brendan
When did you start with Globus and what do you do here?
I started with Globus in May of 2017. I am a Product Manager on our Lateral Interbody Fusion Team, managing our innovative expandable lateral interbody systems.
Why did you choose to pursue a career as a product manager?
I decided to pursue a career at Globus as a Product Manager because it was an opportunity to utilize my engineering background in more of a business environment. Not only do I provide input throughout the design phase of a project, but I also spend time gaining relevant clinical and market knowledge to drive awareness around our market-leading lateral technology.
What did you do before you joined Globus?
I graduated from the University of Delaware in 2016 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Upon graduation I spent a year in the pharmaceutical industry, then transitioned to my position at Globus.
What’s the best thing about your job?
I enjoy the opportunity to see surgeons treat their patients with our innovative technologies. I get to work with many great people across multiple teams, and it is extremely rewarding for everyone when a project we spent a year working on is launched to market and used to improve the life of a patient.
If you had an unexpected day off tomorrow, what would you do with your free day?
If it was July I would say either go golfing or to the beach. Since it is the winter I would most likely take my dog to the dog park, and spend the rest of the day watching the Office (again) or whatever Philly sports game is on TV.
A conversation with Jeffrey
When did you start working at Globus?
I joined Globus in October of 2014, the year of the epic Boston winter – 108″ of snowfall. Quite a return after living in Florida!
What did you find most interesting about Globus that made you want to work here?
The robotics division (now INR) was in the very early stages; I believe I was the 14th team member. The startup feel and mindset attracted me to Globus.
What is your favorite project of your job?
I enjoy taking real-time feedback from surgeons and incorporating it into our software.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
I would say the most challenging part of my job is striking the right balance between features and schedule. At a certain point, we have to release the software updates and I have learned that the features, which may not be ready for this version of software, are not far away in the next iteration.
What would you do for a career if you were not doing this?
I have previously considered a few disciplines including mechanical engineer, chemical engineer, and physician. Ultimately, given the centrality of robotics in medicine, I know that I made the right decision.
A conversation with Brittany
How did you get started in sales? What interested you most in being part of the Globus team?
My career in sales began in 2016 as a Senior Clinical Specialist with Medtronic Spine, Biologics and Stealth. Before I entered sales, I worked as a Certified Surgical Technologist on spine and orthopaedic teams which quickly became a passion of mine. I decided to join the INR team at Globus after learning about the culture. The INR team, especially the clinical team, is a family and that is something I truly value.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is the daily interactions I have with people from all over the world. I’m able to teach and showcase the amazing medical technology of ExcelsiusGPS® that is changing the way spine surgery is performed.
As part of the Imaging, Navigation and Robotics team, you are involved with the innovation that Globus delivers. What sets us apart from the competition?
Besides the way ExcelsiusGPS® navigates, it’s the service our team provides. Everyone on this team is extremely passionate about what we do and the product we are delivering. Long days and nights, weekends, and time spent away from our families are something we do because we know we have an incredible product that can change lives.
What advice would you give to someone interested in starting a career in sales or in joining Globus?
Medical device sales are far more than collecting a paycheck. It’s about bettering the lives of the patient that these devices are used on. From a nursing home, to labor and delivery, to the operating room assisting with surgery, one thing has remained the same and that’s the value I place on patient outcomes.
How do you like to spend your free time?
I am a huge foodie. Cooking, eating, watching cooking shows, searching Pinterest for the best new restaurants all lead to my love of travel. I have a rescue pup at home that I love to take for walks and hikes with my boyfriend.
