What you’ll be doing:  

We’ve been named one of the fastest growing insulin pump companies in the U.S! Why? Tandem has created the simple-to-use t:slim X2 Insulin Pump, which is the smallest pump available, the only pump capable of remote feature updates, and the first CGM-enabled pump approved to let users make treatment decisions without pricking their finger. Tandem engineers take an innovative, user-centric approach to the design and development of products for people with diabetes. Join our software team and work with cutting edge technology to truly make an impact.  

Our team aims to improve the lives of our users by developing and supporting next generation Automated Insulin Delivery (AID) software used in clinical trials. We are also responsible for integrating new Tandem pumps and features with existing AID software.

If you're passionate for helping improve the lives of others, we may have the job for you.

Designed, assembled and supported from our San Diego, CA headquarters, we are the makers of the only color, touch-screen insulin pump that is capable of remote feature updates and compatibility with continuous glucose monitoring.
