Wedel, near Hamburg

In Wedel, we employ experts focusing on commercial and technical roles – from Medical, Sales and Marketing to Finance, Clinical Research and Packing and Distribution, who all keep our network running smoothly.

Join us and in return for your efforts to make lives better all over the world, you’ll enjoy a modern environment with great on-site amenities, such as a canteen with an outside area and on-site gym, all in walking distance to the river Elbe. We also reward your ability to think outside the box with tailored training and a personal strategy to help plan your progression.

What we offer

Here in Germany, we have a design mentality: we design and lead innovation. We successfully work together in cross-functional teams on ideas and their implementation. If you want to improve patients’ lives with creativity, have a can-do mentality and an interest in science, you’ll thrive with us.

Lifelong learning

As part of our progressive mindset, lifelong learning is embedded in our company culture, with plenty of targeted development opportunities for you to grow personally as well as professionally. If you’re interested in an international career, our Development Without Borders program offers you work on global, business-critical projects all over the world.

Doing good

As a company, we are committed to our contribution to society and support multiple projects in the local area. Since 2008, we have participated in the 4km company run to support the social organisation Kinder helfen Kindern, and every year we are involved in the street children project Basis & Woge – in which many employees support social projects for a day.


Together with various training and development opportunities and the chance to work with cutting-edge technologies, you’ll enjoy a flexible benefit package. In Germany, we also provide a canteen, where dishes are freshly prepared with offers for vegetarians and vegans, including fresh fruit and other delicacies. We also support families with our company kindergarten, which is located right next to the office.

Health and fitness

We have many offers to promote a healthy lifestyle. You can either use our onsite-gym with professional fitness equipment or complete fitness courses on a daily basis. If you want to do sports with your colleagues, we have sports groups such as a running or football group. Close knit, collaborative and friendly, these groups meet once a week to go running on the Elbe river or discuss the Champions League results after playing football. For individual training targets, a personal trainer can be booked.
