Every new employee worldwide receives a Medtronic Medallion from senior executives as a reminder of the honour and responsibility we have in fulfilling our Mission.

Few companies can say their Mission is as deeply embedded into the hearts and minds of its people as our Mission is at Medtronic. The actions and decisions of employees at every level are deeply rooted in our quest "to alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life." As CEO Bill Hawkins says, "It is an honour, a privilege, and a duty to have a purpose that calls us to save and improve people's lives."

A Culture of Constant Innovation

Our work changes lives. Each year, nearly 6 million people benefit from our therapies, but we know there are millions more who need them. So our Mission is a powerful motivator, driving us to continually pioneer new technologies, new therapies, and new ways to manage chronic diseases.

The result is an innovative culture where passionate people are encouraged and flourish. If your job search ends at Medtronic, you'll find yourself collaborating with some of the brightest minds in the healthcare industry.

Whether you work in Minneapolis, Munich, Mumbai, or anywhere else in the more than 120 countries where we do business, you can help make a difference to the millions of people who depend on Medtronic each year. See our US and Puerto Rico or our International Career Opportunities to find the Medtronic career that’s right for you.
