Why Join Us

Influence and impact
While this is a hands-on position where you will serve as a functional manager with support, but no direct reports, it is also a position offering opportunities to influence and impact the business. For example, the foundation is in place but, from a regulatory perspective, you can chart the course for Aspen in regard to processes (e.g. records and documents), help set the regulatory activities appropriate for the business, and act as a subject-matter-expert who can train and communicate with Aspen personnel. 

Autonomy and support
We'll look to you to achieve your goals independently and assume ownership of your areas of responsibility. At the same time, your manager truly values proactive communication, will partner with you in multiple areas, and provide strong support. Our goal is to set you up for success, including challenging you and helping you develop professionally.

Build a progressive career
We are proactive about supporting professional development. We offer training that helps employees develop both technical and leadership skills, and we're committed to promoting from within whenever possible. There will be opportunities for growth as the company continues to grow.

Award-winning products enhance the quality of people's lives
Backed by over 25 years of R&D, Aspen Medical Products help patients cope with chronic conditions, manage pain, and heal faster (see testimonials in the video on The Role tab). Our innovative approach and strong business model have earned us distinctions. In addition to the workplace excellence awards mentioned above, we have won:
  • Several Spine Technology Awards from Orthopedics This Week.
  • The American Technology Award, in the medical device category, from TechAmerica Foundation.
  • Awards for delivering exceptional service as a vendor, from Hanger/SPS, a leading distributor of orthotic and prosthetic patient care and therapeutic products, services and solutions.
  • And others.

Road to Success

To excel in this role, you will have excellent attention to detail and the ability to help us remain compliant with applicable industry rules and regulations. We have a unique business, and although we are in the medical device space, we are in a lower classification (less-regulated) than many other products you may have experience supporting. This will require the ability to operate with some “gray area” and remain nimble and flexible to meet the needs of our business. If you are coming from a Class II or III background, this could take some getting used to as you adjust to less stringent standards. 

You'll know you're hitting the mark as you take full ownership of more projects/responsibilities, lightening the load on the VP of Quality and Strategic Initiatives. To earn that confidence, you'll demonstrate your knowledge of regulations, ability to research new areas, and clearly communicate best practices to others throughout the organization. In addition, in order to be an outstanding Senior Regulatory Affairs Manager, you will:
  • Apply yourself to knowledge gain, quickly learning and filling in any gaps
  • Serve as a strong consultant, accurately answering questions, such as ensuring R&D has the regulatory information they need
  • Provide information in digestible and understandable terms (i.e., this is what the standard means...)
  • Raise the bar companywide on regulatory knowledge
  • Dig in and research as we move into new markets, ensuring we have all the needed compliance information
  • Be dedicated to post-market surveillance and maintenance
