An exciting opportunity  

 

Chronic pain affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide, including more than 100 million in the US alone. Our global mission—our passion and purpose—is to help these people with cutting-edge technologies. We helped develop the science of Neuromodulation. We are leaders in Spinal Cord Stimulation: the use of implanted electrical devices to help relieve pain. We are also a leader in DBS: deep brain stimulation. People with a passion to improve lives created these solutions and are hard at work on other breakthroughs. If you share our passion to truly make a difference, please join us. At Boston Scientific Neuromodulation, you’ll have the opportunity to improve people’s lives by working as a team member on product development and other technology projects to bring clarity and consistency to documents through accurate and concise writing.

And over the past four decades, Neuromodulation technology has helped relieve pain and other symptoms for more than 400,000 people worldwide. But there’s still so much more to do. So much more potential. So many more opportunities. So many more unmet needs. If you have the dedication, the drive, and the determination to help take Neuromodulation—and Boston Scientific—to the next level of excellence, we need you and want you.
