A conversation with Sofia
Where did you go to school, and when did you start working at Globus?
I recently graduated from Drexel University with a Master’s in Biomedical Engineering. I started at Globus as a Project Engineer co-op in September 2019 and transitioned to full-time employee.
What originally drew you to working at Globus?
During the interview process, I saw how much Globus employees cared for patients, as well as the drive everyone had to succeed. An environment where everyone is continuously helping each other and learning makes for a fantastic company culture. While researching the company, I was pleasantly surprised at how much of an impact Globus has made.
What do you like most about working at Globus?
My connection with my team as well as other departments has grown tremendously at Globus. Collaborating with various departments and engineers has made my time very enjoyable. Being able to take on projects and quickly make an impact also makes the job worthwhile.
Where do you see engineering in medical devices headed?
There are so many new areas for research in healthcare. Building off of surgical techniques established over a decade ago is leading to more innovations and overall advancements in the industry. Integrating software solutions like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and virtual reality is the next step in many surgical procedures. Globus is well on its way to being the company that successfully uses these solutions for all types of procedures.
A conversation with Lisa
Tell us about your career at Globus.
This summer I will celebrate my 10-year anniversary of working at Globus! I am the Director of Professional Affairs Administration. Before I became Director, I was the department’s manager and prior to that I was a Project Manager. I’ve been fortunate to have had several excellent mentors whom I’ve learned a lot from and continue to seek out their expertise. There’s also a wealth of knowledge in the people around me. I learn something new every day.
What has been your favorite project at Globus?
My favorite project at Globus is our Annual Fellows Day. Each year we invite Fellows from around the country whom we have supported to present case studies and participate in a cadaver lab. It’s very gratifying knowing we are playing a small part in helping to educate young surgeons.
Tell us about Globus’ exceptional response and how you apply that to your interactions with either your team or our customers.
My department serves internal customers as well as external ones and it’s important that we respond diligently to any questions or concerns they may have. No issue is considered minor and my team works hard to ensure that each situation is handled with urgency.
What advice would you give to someone interested in joining Globus?
I would tell them if you want to join a company that’s constantly growing and creating innovative products with one goal in mind—to help people—then come to Globus! My 15-year-old told me the other day that when he turns 18 he wants to work at Globus so we must be doing something right!
