As a leading innovator in musculoskeletal healthcare, we create the world’s most complete inventory for joint reconstruction, bone and skeletal repair, sports and spinal injuries, as well as dental procedures.

Each day, Zimmer Biomet Team Members fulfill our Mission to lead the industry in delivering value to healthcare providers, patients and stockholders, while embracing our broader social responsibilities. Our Purpose and Mission are underscored by our values and reflected in our culture.

Our innovations help treat patients with disorders of the bones, joints, and what holds them together. Zimmer Biomet solutions span pre-to-post-operative care. We work closely with top healthcare professionals to speed up the pace of innovation and expand the possibilities for successful treatment outcomes.

With business operations spanning the globe, we look for bright and talented individuals who are results-driven and share our commitment not just to what we make, but to what we make possible.

We provide a collaborative environment and the tools, resources, and training opportunities our Team Members can use to succeed. You provide the drive.

From the very beginning, our goal at Zimmer Biomet has been to create new possibilities for healthcare professionals and their patients.

It all starts with seeing the potential for making splints out of aluminum, rather than making splints out of wood. But questioning the status quo doesn’t stop there. It continues with the championing of biomaterials and design advances that are now the industry standard.

At Zimmer Biomet, our relentless pursuit of better and better solutions has led to revolutionary changes in musculoskeletal healthcare.

From the use of direct compression molded polyethylene, to titanium alloy in cementless reconstructive products, our capability for innovation is continuously improving as it evolves.

The promise of progress is how Zimmer Biomet got started and it is what still drives us today.


Headquartered in Warsaw, Indiana, Zimmer Biomet designs, develops, manufactures and markets orthopaedic reconstructive, spinal and trauma devices, dental implants, and related surgical products.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zimmer Biomet (Atlanta, GA).


    Got the interview from an on campus career fair and had the 30 minute interview the following morning. After one month they offered me a position without further interviews which was surprising.
