We are hiring
At Laerdal, we have set out a 2030 goal to help save one million more lives. Every year. By 2030.
Are you smart and motivated with strong foundational and technical knowledge? Do you see the big picture, even when you are working on the small details? Then maybe you are ready to take a step forward in your career.
We are not exactly a startup, but we are not corporate either. We're engineering-driven from the top down, and will do what it takes to deliver the best solutions in the industry. We can’t achieve our ambitious goals without a strong commitment to innovation and pushing boundaries – and we wouldn’t be the industry leader and innovator we are today without the unique mix of talents that our D.C. office consists of.
Our engineering teams work on real-time video machine learning, predictive analytics, robotics integrations, and are always pushing for smaller and more efficient video encoders.
Our process – Our tech
We have a very fun, flexible, and relaxed environment. Our team owns the entire development process - from inception/design, platform development, product/app development, cloudOps, and pricing. We're engineering-driven from the top down and let our engineers “own” features they’re working on and build them from top-to-bottom.
Our engineers also own the development process, leading to a highly effective hybrid-remote environment, where most of the team only has 1 day of meetings every 2 weeks.
Our SimCapture Cloud solution is powered by the first fully cloud-based simulation LMS on the market. This multi-tenant, micro-service-based architecture allows us to utilize the most modern of stacks while being flexible enough to use the best tools and languages for each task.
The extensibility of our platform allows our product and application teams to build the most innovative web and mobile-based solutions on the market.
We got our start by developing the first web-based medical simulation Learning Management System (LMS) and are best known for our multi-channel video processing. We get to develop a lot of other next-generation technology. We have teams working on real-time video machine learning, predictive analytics, and are always pushing for smaller and more efficient video encoders.
Not only do we get to design, build, and deploy some of the most innovative cloud solutions on the market - we also get to design our own video encoders, signal processors, and work with the most advanced medical simulation robotics in the industry.
Opportunities for development
We believe that our employees own their own development. As a company, we emphasize a practical and blended approach to learning activities to best meet identified individual needs and strategic directions.
Compensation and benefits
While Laerdal Labs D.C. offers all the standard benefits and then some, its best benefits are more intangible. Work for a diverse and energetic team. Participate in monthly happy hours, company social events, and great volunteer causes. We often enjoy team gatherings at one of Dupont Circle's many great restaurants, and we cater a full daily breakfast and lunch in the office.
We know you only perform as well as you feel. That’s why we offer a variety of health and wellness activities for keeping your body and mind in shape.
We understand that a good work-life balance is essential to well-being. A family -friendly environment, a healthy workplace, community engagement opportunities, flexibility, among other initiatives contribute to the well-being of our employees.
Be a part of a place that is recognized for the work we do – from prestigious design awards to media recognition to the Business for Peace Award, Laerdal is proud of the recognition we receive.
