Why should you join NuVasive?

  • Being a $1 billion start-up allows us to capitalize on the nimbleness and agility, as well as a very strong defined culture, while also tapping the resources that a $685 million company provides.  We’re lucky in the fact that we get to live in the best of both business worlds.
  • Less than ½ of a percent of start-ups make it to $500 million, and less than a ¼ of a percent make it to $1 billion.  We are lucky and blessed, and have been wildly successful with 47 up quarters and going from $0 to $685 million in only 13 years.  With MIS spine surgery just surpassing 30% of global spine market share, we have barely scratched the surface.  Despite a flat $6 billion US market, we are continuing to climb at 11% revenue growth. 
  • We have over 1600 shareowners in 25+ countries, and additional countries on our short-term road map.  With revenue growth at 11%, and Operating Margins at over 15%, we are a great place to start or accelerate your career, and have a huge impact.


The essential functions are:

Responsible for achieving the sales revenue and product mix requirements for the territory.

  • Accelerate revenue and market penetration for all products in the territory while driving the development of relationships with key spine surgeon customers.
  • Conduct key marketing activities such as peer-to-peer spine surgeon events and visiting surgeon programs that espouse the values of our foundation technologies. Additionally, sell the virtues of the Marquis Visit Program to customer targets in order to educate and drive usage of NuVasive products and procedures.
  •  Execute the sales plan and thoughtfully produce monthly and quarterly updates to the plan and review process. 
  • Acquire clinical competency skills with all NuVasive products to assure role of sales expert in an elite sales force. Surgical case coverage is required, with the goal of providing the highest degree of value to surgeon and patient.
