  • Field Service Careers for Veterans in the Medical Technology Industry

The Medical Technology industry is a $156 billion industry. In 2017, the U.S. market made up about 40 percent of the global market. By 2023, it is expected to grow to $208 billion. Field Service positions are critical to the growth and success of this industry, and transitioning service members and veterans are in high demand. Orion has partnered with some of America’s most sought after companies in this space to support Field Service openings, including Medtronic, Stryker, Beckman Coulter, Rees Scientific, and more.

Working in a Field Service role in the medical technology industry is interesting and fast-paced, with work that is rewarding, interesting, and challenging. Veterans excel in Field Service roles due to the unmatched technical training and hands-on troubleshooting experience you’ve gained in the military. Additionally, a Field Service career allows you the ability to work independently, have a flexible schedule, gives you the opportunity to meet a variety of people, and provides additional compensation to travel and gain travel miles or rewards for personal use. You may also have the ability to be based out of your home due to the extensive travel that most Field Service positions entail.

There are many benefits to a career in this field that expand further than standard health insurance and a 401k. Most companies will also provide you with a company car or car allowance along with a laptop, cell phone, internet, and an expense account or company credit card. While the benefits for Field Service opportunities vary from company to company, all offer a combination of the abovementioned perks that add to the overall compensation and benefits package.
