Co-ops at NxStage
NxStage Medical, Inc. is a leading medical technology company that was founded in 1998. Our inventions and ground-breaking technology are helping to improve the lives of kidney patients across the globe and we are just getting started.
We are committed not only to research but also education, advocacy, and social responsibility, working closely with our partners, customers, patients, industry leaders, and even in and around our own communities.
In short, we are about building next-generation dialysis solutions that improve patient quality of life and change the face of renal care across care settings.
About Co-ops at NxStage
At NxStage, we are on a mission to revolutionize renal care. To do that, we continually seek the best-of-the-best co-ops and interns to expand and improve our team of dedicated, innovative professionals.
Our Co-op program operates in 6-month cycles in a variety of different functions including Software & Hardware Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Marketing, Ops, and Product Development positions.
Co-ops at NxStage contribute significantly by working directly on the same projects that their teams are in ways that are mutually beneficial to both the co-op and the team.
This past co-op cycle one of our student projects was investigating the thermal properties of our new system. Another co-op worked closely with the software team to design and test original java scripts used in the development of new system behavior. Other systems co-ops got hands-on experience testing simulated dialysis treatments with Bovine blood.
One of our previous ME co-ops had the opportunity to design and prototype a new custom test fixture on a milling machine using skills learned from our in-house machinist.
