Emerging Markets: The Next Frontier

Sales outside the United States represent about 30% of our business today. That percentage is likely to increase with the growth of several key emerging markets that offer tremendous career opportunities. Leading the way is China, which could become Medtronic's second-biggest market within a decade. Other fast-growing areas are India, the Middle East, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and South Africa. To find job openings by country, go to our US and Puerto Rico or our International Career Opportunities.

Pride in Improving Healthcare Worldwide

Being part of a global, industry-leading company can provide a great deal of satisfaction and pride. Medtronic works with governments, payers, and healthcare organisations worldwide to help shape healthcare policy and improve access to life-saving therapies.
