We believe in recognition and celebration and this is just one example how Sciton set's itself apart from other employers in the space. 

Corporate History

Sciton, Inc., located in Palo Alto, California, is a privately owned medical device company established in 1997 by co-founders James Hobart, Ph.D., and Daniel Negus, Ph.D., who left Coherent Medical (the largest laser company in the world at the time) to start a new laser company that was completely self-financed.

Sciton was established with a focus on long-term results and making both patients and physicians happy. Sciton’s innovation, from Erbium lasers to dual flash-lamp technology, helped to improve concerns of existing treatments by increasing efficiency, minimizing downtime, and enhancing patient results.

Sciton offers a more lucrative business opportunity with training, education, and a support team behind it. Their wide range of products solves aesthetic and medical challenges in ways that other companies cannot — all from a single platform that allows a provider to offer multiple procedures with one investment and small additional add-ons.

Today, Sciton continues to grow as a totally employee-owned company, launching results designed with both physicians and patients in mind.

Founded by the laser industry’s preeminent engineers and physicists, Sciton’s mission is to provide best-in-class solutions to improve the human condition.
Our company strength stems from our diverse collection of talented employees. We are always looking for dedicated and driven individuals who excel in a challenging, team-oriented environment.

Let's Grow Together

At Sciton, we’re more than a company, we are a Family. We're a team of risk-takers and pioneers who've shaped the aesthetic medical device industry. Our open-door culture welcomes and fosters individuals who are creative, driven, passionate and willing to take the lead with us.

We’re looking for the right individuals who:

  • Fit well with the company’s core values
  • Don’t need to be tightly managed
  • Take ownership and accountability
  • Understand it’s not a “job”, but their RESPONSIBILITY.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sciton (Palo Alto, CA) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn, and received a response within 2 days. I wasn't able to make the first interview because I was on a project in Miami, and reapplied a month later. Was invited to a job fair a few hours after applying during their after-hours, and showed up the next day to interview with the director of the team. I had an offer on hand from a nearby business, and they respectfully expedited the interview process to the next business day with my manager & president. I received my job offer within the same week.
