Seeking Clinical Cardiac Sales Representatives looking for a challenging, yet rewarding, sales opportunity in Medical Device.  

Why TandemLife/LivaNova?

LivaNova and TandemLife have joined together as one. Founded in 1996, TandemLife was the trendsetter that paved the way for competitive short-term heart failure solutions. As an organization on the cutting-edge of medical science, we plan to expand beyond the confines of cardiac support to bring breakthrough products to the respiratory support market. We need you to make this a reality. 

Emergent, severe, life-threatening events, such as sudden cardiac arrest, severe respiratory distress, and traumas requiring immediate life-support will strike more than a million Americans each year. When these events occur a rapid, easy to use device may be essential to survival. The market is already trending in this direction, but current temporary cardiopulmonary bypass systems have a level of complexity that may inhibit the use of the device. TandemLife is designed with this issue in mind. The easy to prime pump and oxygenator will enable you to stabilize the patient quickly and gives you time to assess patients’ conditions to determine a more long-term strategy. Leveraging the TandemLife platform at the onset of the acute event will enable a transition to a higher degree of support later. The TandemLife kit components are indicated for temporary cardiopulmonary bypass for up to 6 hours. 



As a Clinical Cardiac Sales Representative, you will promote these lifesaving products in a world that contains no other product like it. You will be responsible for developing new accounts, growing existing accounts, & ensuring technical and clinical support 24/7 to customers through case support, hands-on training, and presentations. It is critical for you to understand this will not be an easy job. There may be several overnights involved and you will be responsible for account growth and development in a very short amount of time. You will primarily be working in a hospital environment (Cath Lab, CVICU, OR, CTICU), so you must have a strong knowledge of cardiac cath lab, cardiac surgery, CVICU critical care skills, and hospital operations.

Ideally, you should have 3 + years of successful selling experience in a medical field, preferably in a consultative role (e.g., Cardiac Cath Lab, Perfusion, Cardiovascular ICU/Critical Care, etc.), where daily accountabilities are established, measured and rewarded. Cardiac Sales Representatives will need to have a background as a registered nurse (RN) or registered cardiovascular invasive specialist (RCIS). You will be traveling and need to be able to support clinical sites on short notice; up to 80% travel will be required. It is critical to your success in this role to have an understanding of cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology and hemodynamics; general knowledge of cardiac and respiratory ECLS supports systems is also essential. This opportunity possesses dual responsibilities; you will educate and build new business.
