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.
