Aidan - Senior Project Analyst - Diabetes


Senior Project Analyst – Core Team Lead
Northridge, CA

Why do you enjoy working at Medtronic?

I enjoy working at Medtronic because I am surrounded by passionate people. The days fly by while we are working diligently to integrate the latest innovations into our products. I have been given some incredible opportunities in my short time here having worked in R&D, Operations, and most recently PMO.

What do you love about your job?

I chose to study biomedical engineering because I wanted to apply my interest in math and science toward helping people. Working at Medtronic Diabetes has given me the confidence that every day I am achieving that goal. Diabetes is such a prominent disease and I am honored to be a small part of the team that is continuously working to make each patient's life a little easier.

What is challenging about your job?

The most challenging part about my job is knowing the type of technology that exists and not being able to get it in the hands of our customers today. We must continue to work toward quality-driven, efficient product development processes to ensure that the benefits of each innovation can be experienced by our patients in a timely manner.

What do you love about your current location?

Having grown up in the Midwest, I am so appreciative of the continuous warm weather in Southern California. It's beautiful here, and because we are so close to the ocean I have acquired a new favorite hobby – whale watching!

What advice would you give to job candidates?

Get involved and offer to help (even if the activity isn't in your job description). The more you branch out and experience the different aspects of an industry, the better suited you will be to accomplish your long-term goals, whatever they may be.

What is your favorite quote?

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." – Albert Einstein


Beware of fraudulent job postings from people claiming to be recruiters for Medtronic.

We are aware of job postings being made by people who claim to be recruiters for Medtronic, even using Medtronic employee names, but who are in no way affiliated with Medtronic. We have also been made aware of people posing as Medtronic recruiters and making contact about job opportunities and extending job offers via text message, instant message or chat rooms. These job postings and offers are fraudulent.

Beware of recruiters that ask candidates to submit unusual personal information like bank statements or utility bills, pay a fee in order to be considered for a job, or pay "start-up expenses" after being hired. Medtronic does not require candidates to make any type of payment to them as part of the recruitment process or job offer. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States' consumer protection agency, has online resources for detecting job scams.

Positions posted on the Careers site are legitimate. If you find a Medtronic posting on a site other than our careers site, verify its legitimacy before applying by visiting the Career Opportunities section of our site and searching for the requisition number.

If you think you have responded to a fraudulent job posting or been a victim of this scam, you are encouraged to report it to your local law enforcement and to the Internet Crime Complaint Center for further investigation.

If you have further questions, please call (800) 328-2518.
