Hologic – Why Work For Us?

At Hologic, we're an innovative medical technology company that enables healthier lives everywhere, every day. We are also a company that prospers and grows, which is how we've been able to expand our offerings to impact even more people and become a leading champion of women's health globally. 

What powers our growth across the Breast & Skeletal Health, Diagnostics, GYN Surgical Solutions and Medical Aesthetics divisions is also what differentiates us – the exceptional and clinically proven capacity of our products to detect, diagnose and treat health conditions earlier and better. This clinical superiority creates high expectations, which we fulfill by continually challenging ourselves to improve health through better technology, education and market access.

None of this would be possible without the talent and passion of our people. Together, our expertise and dedication drives our increasingly global presence and a promising product pipeline that responds to the unmet health and wellness needs of women, families and communities.

While we focus on women's health and well-being, we are committed to bringing an even more significant benefit on the world. Together we advocate for better health and wellness through solutions that provide greater certainty and peace of mind.

Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions

Our Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions division offers products that enable early detection, more certain diagnosis and, when necessary, accurate and compassionate treatment.

We also continue to take skeletal health assessments to new heights – using market leading technology to assess three critical health problems – osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

Diagnostics Solutions

Our Diagnostic Solutions division delivers market-leading, clinically differentiated assays and instrumentation for molecular, perinatal and cytology testing.

As the leader in cytology and molecular diagnostic solutions for more than 30 years, Hologic’s proven solutions deliver better outcomes through prevention of cervical cancer and the detection of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), as well as enable labs to achieve higher productivity.

GYN Surgical Solutions

Our GYN Surgical Solutions division offers a suite of minimally invasive treatment options for women facing gynecologic conditions that affect uterine health and well-being. With over 10 years of clinical data to support the effectiveness of our gynecological solutions, Hologic is a leader in treating abnormal uterine bleeding in both the office and hospital settings.

Medical Aesthetics

Our Medical Aesthetics division offers best-in-class, energy-based technologies that deliver a range of benefits that impact health, wellness and quality of life — from body contouring and skin revitalization to hair removal and restoring women’s vaginal health.

We look for people seeking to make a difference in people’s lives – a big, positive, difference that helps people get healthy, stay healthy and enjoy life more.  

Because the difference we can make in the world starts within our walls, we create a culture that encourages each person to apply the best of his or her talents, and we know that exceptional results will follow.  

At Hologic, we maximize our impact with powerful, thoughtful employee experiences to build an environment where people can thrive, foster a sense of community and do their best work. 

The truth is, we’re not interested in only knowing what you bring to the table — your past experiences and accomplishments, your education, the results you’ve achieved. We also want to know what legacy you want to build with us — and how we can help you succeed. Our future, after all, depends on everyone at Hologic.    

Want to help us make a difference? Let’s talk.

    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than a year)


    How logic has provided me a great work environment, incredibly smart and passionate people to work with, The resources I need to succeed, and the opportunity to blaze my own trail.

    I find the executive leadership team to be incredibly passionate, engaging, and inspiring.


    While there has been a complete change in all leadership positions I find that some very tenured employees are naysayers which can slow productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the unique culture and environment!
