    I have been working at AirXpanders full-time


    Very proud of the product - AeroForm - and how it's helping women with breast reconstruction. Personally, happy with my salary and perks that the company offers - competitive for medical device industry. We're rapidly growing both operations and commercial teams while still keeping a close eye on company culture. It's the perfect time to join AirXpanders!


    Any start-up that is moving from a long R&D phase to commercialization is going to have growing pains - AirXpanders is going through this right now. This (common problem) can be frustrating, but senior management is aware and working towards resolving this gap.

    Advice to Management

    Every single team is running fast with multiple urgent projects. Be okay to take the time for strategic decisions.
