NxStage Medical Inc. became part of the Fresenius Medical Care Family in 2019. Our alignment on mission, values, and patient focus made us a great match.
INNOVATIVE. COLLABORATIVE. GROWING. DEDICATED. COMPASSIONATE.
If this describes your ideal work environment, chances are you belong at Fresenius Medical Care supporting our NxStage products. Our goal is to create and deliver the very best, most transformative solutions to the renal care community. To do that, we need talented, caring, inventive people looking to make a difference – in their careers and in the lives of others.
Everyone who supports our NxStage products – whether in our offices in historic Lawrence, Massachusetts or in the field – has the opportunity and privilege to improve how the world views, treats, and cares for people living with kidney disease.
HOW WE DO THINGS …
People are our most important asset. As part of the NxStage team at Fresenius Medical Care, we want you to feel welcomed, informed, and empowered.

- Chair massages
- Treadmill desks
- Casual dress code

Note: Due to COVID-19 some of these amenities have been paused to ensure the health and well-being of our team. Please read below about how we have adjusted our operations due to the pandemic, and know that once it is safe to do so we will return to our fun office environment.
WHERE WE DO THINGS …
Cookie-cutter, uninspiring work environments? That’s not our thing. Our corporate offices reside in a 7-story restored red brick mill building, built in in the late 1800s. Here you’ll find an appealing combination of antique architectural features, colorful walls, modern furnishings, and ample natural light.
Our waterfront location is surrounded by history, with views of 19th-century textile mills and bridges, the Merrimack River, towering dormant smokestacks, and Ayer Mill clock tower, known as the world's largest mill clock.
Commuters love our proximity to area highways, with Interstate 495 footsteps from our parking lot, and I-93 just five miles to the west. If public transportation is more your speed, bus stops and a commuter rail station are a short walk away.
In addition, as part of Lawrence’s Riverwalk Property, we offer easy access to local restaurants, medical offices, child care, residential housing, and pilot college and university campuses – many of which provide discounts for our employees.
HOW HAVE WE ADJUSTED DUE TO COVID-19 …
Colleagues working remotely
A large majority of our employees have transitioned to working from home. We do have a small amount of select roles who are going into the office to support key projects that aid in developing newer technologies within the dialysis industry.
Social distancing guidelines and safety measures
It is our priority to keep all colleagues safe and healthy. When working remotely is not an option, we follow the state of Massachusetts COVID-19 guidelines and have established a COVID-19 playbook. This includes:
- Temperature checks upon entering the building
- Face masks while in the office (and in some cases gloves)
- Staggered lab and office schedules to ensure we never have more than a few people in an open workspace at one time
We are hiring and are doing so with the safety of our colleagues and job seekers in mind. We are using online technology to meet with job seekers, share the details of our company and roles, and answer their questions.
WHAT WE OFFER …
Our employees enjoy a flexible schedule and casual atmosphere with a strong focus on work-life balance.
Career development is a key to our success, whether you’re looking at a promotion, or you decide you want to pursue a new internal career path, further your education, or attend specialized training. And given our recent merger with Fresenius Medical Care, the options for growth have never been better.

- Life Insurance and Long- and Short-term Disability
