The thing I like most about my role as Product Director, Immunology and Intensive Care Emergency Medicine (ICEM), is that there is no “average” day at OUSA; every day there’s always something new – an emerging mission or developing concern requiring rapid response. We move fast as a team and make good things happen. That’s powerful.
I am Product Director, Immunology and Intensive Care Emergency Medicine (ICEM). The thing I like most about my role is that there is no “average” day at OUSA; every day there’s always something new – an emerging mission or developing concern requiring rapid response. For example, today we are dealing with questions and issues about thenovel coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19. Because our company is relatively small and nimble, we can move fast. Ready access to senior leadership at Octapharma USA and Octapharma Global means being able to act with the speed and focus that make a meaningful difference to our customers, whether they are on the business or clinical side of what we do.
What’s really motivating to me is that we are dealing with life-saving products. These aren’t lifestyle medications. If you are a patient who needs an Octapharma product, you need it because your health and your life depend on it. I think about that every time I talk to a customer or patient. The things we do and say here can change someone’s life for the better, or maybe even save their life. That’s powerful.
Our culture here is one that is inclusive and entrepreneurial. We are an incredibly diverse, global team. I’ve now met a person from each of six different continents, all making meaningful contributions to the company and to my personal understanding of our worldwide business. In four years, I’ve worked on three new product launches. Our team is very lean. That means you do more individually, but it also means that your contribution makes a big difference – it’s one you can feel and take pride in when you see the positive impact it has for a patient or customer. Of course, It’s also pretty rewarding to hear a customer say “thanks” when they are having a good experience with an Octapharma product.
Interested in applying for a job with us? Then I’d say bring your best game, be ready to show that you can be action-oriented and entrepreneurial, and demonstrate an understanding of what it means to be customer-focused. Those things are the basics. We don’t have a place for people who aren’t willing to go full tilt on day one. If you are ready to hit the ground running, have the required experience, and possess a “never say die” attitude, then there is very likely a good spot for you here.
