CGM: More than just a number

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is a small wearable device that tracks your glucose throughout the day and night, notifying you of highs and lows so you can take action.

CGM helps to minimize the guesswork that comes from making decisions based solely on a number from a blood glucose meter reading, for better diabetes management.

Dexcom CGM

Whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, CGM can help you make more informed treatment decisions and can lead to better glycemic control. So how does this technology work? A CGM system consists of three parts: a glucose sensor, a transmitter and a small receiver that displays real-time glucose information.

  1. Small sensor

    A discrete sensor located just underneath the skin measures your glucose levels.

  2. Transmitter

    This piece fits onto the sensor and sends data wirelessly to your display device.

  3. Display device

    Glucose activity is shown in vivid colors so you can easily see when it’s trending high, low or within range.

Dexcom CLARITY® cloud-based reporting software

Dexcom CLARITY® is a unique cloud-based reporting system that allows you and your healthcare professional to access and track your glucose data anywhere2 and quickly identify critical glucose patterns.

    I have been working at Dexcom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel honored to work here. I work in tech support and knowing that I am helping someone and making a difference is very rewarding. The company is growing faster than any company I have ever worked for. The management is first class and there for you every step of the way. Customer experience is first and foremost. Pay and benefits are way above AZ averages. The work environment is professional but fun at the same time. Plenty of room for advancement.

    Cons

    As we grow, there are some issues with systems talking between departments, but that is being addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! We appreciate you.

    Sensor Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online, had a phone screen with the hiring manager, then another with the director of the group. For the in-person interview, I was asked to do a technical presentation attended by several group members, followed by several 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 interviews. Everyone I spoke with was polite and had very interesting questions about my background and expertise, aside from the typical interview questions. It was also very informative to be interviewed by cross-disciplinary group members that I would be collaborating with in the future. I found the whole process to be pleasant and well organized.
