The Alpine Group
JOB DESCRIPTIONAPPLY SMALL COMPANY. BIG PLANS.
A high-growth, pre-IPO medical technology company has the world's first flexible robotic system used in soft-tissue surgery and they are expanding their marketing team. This dynamic, well-capitalized organization has commercialized their first instrument in Europe and the U.S. They compete in a 2B surgical market that is projected to grow to 20B in five years, and it's been more than 15 years since a new surgical robot has been approved for soft-tissue repair. They have an exciting work environment where their relatively small teams have unusually strong personal chemistry. If you're looking for an opportunity to help build something that will last - to apply your marketing skills to a business model with a huge upside potential - then we would like to hear from you.
