Patients First | Innovation | Winning Culture | Heart Recovery

Are you curious about the next generation of innovative heart pumps – pumps that are smaller, smarter, and connected? Are you fascinated by the advanced hemodynamic monitoring used to manage those pumps? Do you want to build the future of the cardiac ICU in pursuit of our mission to “Recover Hearts and Save Lives”? If yes, we are definitely looking for you!

At Abiomed, we’re building the next generation of advanced mechanical circulatory support – devices that are smarter and more connected with the growing healthcare data ecosystem. We believe that best-in-class devices are built at the system-level, knowing how they support patients and how those patients are managed from diagnosis to discharge. We believe that our leaders do best when they know the unmet clinical needs of our users and our patients and they have the technical strength to find, build, and deliver a solution for that need.

We are currently hiring for an Algorithm Engineer who will be responsible for designing and implementing a new generation of advanced signal processing algorithms used in Abiomed's family of Impella heart pumps. These new algorithms will play a central role in the pursuit of Abiomed's mission of recovering hearts and saving lives. We are looking for a creative self-starter who welcomes ambitious challenges and thrives in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
