Who or What is ARC Medical Devices?
ARC Medical is developing and commercializing novel, first-in-class solutions to prevent post-surgical adhesions - which if not prevented cause pain & suffering, organ dysfunction, infertility, and death; and for which there is a dire unmet medical need.
Our products are non-viscous, liquid, polysaccharide-based medical devices. We’re building our manufacturing facility and implementing quality systems now. We anticipate obtaining first approvals, to be immediately followed by post-market trials, in the fall of this year.
Work to positively transform the health of millions of surgery patients
Care more about your creativity, intelligence and values than your experience
Are building a start-up: a normal work week is minimum 60 hours
Are implementing efficient systems in the midst of scale-up chaos
Aren’t afraid to make mistakes
Why Work at ARC Medical?
People: we have a superstar team that’s smart, creative, driven and fun to work with (also a bit goofy)
Cash: an average to fair salary reflective of experience
Options: extremely generous stock options (no cash bonuses – this is a great position for someone who wants to use their leadership and hands-on skills to build a company towards a large exit – and if/when we succeed, have a big stock hit)
Perks: considerable health & dental coverage; and Friday beer o’clock
Equal Opportunity Employer
We are an equal opportunity employer and evaluate applicants without regard to race, colour, national origin, religion, gender, age, marital status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other characteristic protected by law.
We anticipate that 25 to 50% of the time for this position will include international travel.
