Careers that Change Lives

Change begins with you. We look for bold ideas and fresh insights - that's what drives innovation. Come drive the future of healthcare with us.

Join a diverse team of innovators who bring their worldview, their unique backgrounds, and their individual life experiences to work every day. It's no accident -we work hard to cultivate a workforce that reflects our patients and partners. We believe it's the only way to drive healthcare forward and remain a global leader in medical technology and solutions.

Medtronic's ML engineers develop the next-generation technologies that revolutionize the care of millions of patients worldwide. Our products range from complex cloud-based information processing at massive scale to efficient algorithms controlling the real-time operation of implanted devices. We're looking for engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas, including artificial intelligence, computer vision, signal processing, natural language processing, information retrieval, distributed computing, UI design and mobile. As a ML engineer, you will work on multiple projects critical to the needs of Medtronic's Cardiac Rhythm and Heart Failure division. Our engineers need to be versatile, display leadership qualities and be enthusiastic to take on new problems across the full-stack as we continue to push technology forward.

Day in the Live

  • Design, build, train and test Machine Learning models
  • Work closely with Project Managers, Research Scientists, and fellow ML Engineers to frame Machine Learning problems within the business context
