Human Factors careers

From our research lab to the OR

Intuitive’s success is measured by the impact surgeons have on their patients. That success depends on our Human Factors team, whose empathetic user research and rigorous testing ensures that by the time our technology arrives in an operating room, it is easy to use. We take that responsibility very seriously. Our team members are as committed to the meticulousness of their research as they are to the mission we’re all working toward.

An essential role in product development

Human Factors is an integral part of the product development lifecycle—over the years, we’ve gotten involved earlier in that cycle, and we’re called on when an idea is in its earliest concept phases. Collaborating with our engineers, we have to imagine ourselves in the operating room, studying every move or decision a surgeon and the care team may make as they interact with our technology.

Meeting surgeons where they are

Our research brings us as close as possible to the operating room. We have sophisticated fixed labs where surgeons are invited to test new features and products, and a mobile lab that visits hospitals around the U.S. Whether in one of these labs or alongside our engineers, our team is driven by a collaborative and inclusive spirit, laser-focused on the humans that are doing the work that matters: helping surgeons help the most important person in the OR—the patient. If you’re ready for the endless challenges that come with balancing optimization with innovation, you can help set the standard for what usability looks like in robotic surgery.

Connect our innovations to the surgeons who impact patients‘ lives. Prove what‘s possible.
