If you are working in the STEM sector, you can’t afford to pass up the opportunity to meet with Boston Scientific at Jobs Expo Dublin. But what exactly do they do? And what’s it like to work for them? We thought we’d let them tell you in their own words.
About Boston Scientific
Boston Scientific is dedicated to transforming lives through innovative medical solutions that improve the health of patients around the world. We are the largest medical device employer in Ireland and we employ over 5,000 people in our 3 Irish sites in Galway, Cork and Clonmel.
A culture of continuous improvement, innovation and knowledge driven product development defines Boston Scientific, Clonmel. We design, develop and manufacture Pacemakers, Defibrillators, Spinal Cord Stimulators and Deep Brain Stimulators. These complex medical solutions treat the world’s major health issues.
50% of Europeans will suffer some form of heart condition. Our S-ICD™ System is a new generation of defibrillator that leaves the patient’s heart entirely untouched. Therapy is delivered without the need for wires implanted in the heart – making the procedure less invasive for patients.
The single biggest cause of adult disability is chronic pain and affects one third of the US population. 1% of Americans will develop Parkinson’s disease. Our Vercise™ Deep Brain Stimulator (DBS) is the world’s first system designed for accurate neural targeting.This system allows patients to have control to manage symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and essential tremor
Our implantable devices combine innovative mechanical and electrical technology with cutting edge software algorithms. These devices provide real time data to physicians for a range of parameters such as physical activity, breathing and heart rate. The individualised data enables physicians to better understand, diagnose and treat patients in a more effective and efficient manner.
We have a very creative culture in Clonmel. We don’t consider any challenge insurmountable. Working in this environment, helping to deliver new and better solutions, helps to transform the lives of millions of people around the world.
