    Qualifications

    Want in?  If so, check out the fine print on what we think makes a great biomed technician at DaVita:

    • A high school diploma – Did you graduate from high school?  Great!  Did you graduate from a trade school/college biomed or electronics technology program?  Even better!  That type of education would support you well in this position.
    • A skilled electro-mechanical equipment technician – The best candidates will have performed this type of work at some point in the past, or have a demonstrated aptitude for it.
    • Great communications skills – DaVita teammates (this is what we call our employees) communicate openly, honestly and frequently with each other.  You’ll need to be a master at this.
    • Solid computer skills – Our teammates regularly use MS Office applications (Word, Excel and Outlook), the internet, and DaVita-specific applications to perform their work.  We’ll train you on the DaVita tools, but you’ll need to come into the job with solid internet navigation and MS Office skills.
    • A valid driver’s license – Our Biomed Techs typically need to drive their own automobiles to get from one clinic to another.  You’ll need a valid driver’s license within the state you are applying for work, as well as valid automobile insurance and an acceptable driving record.
    • Available for on-call rotations – We’re a healthcare provider, and sometimes our clinics and patients have needs late at night, on the weekends, and even during the wee hours of the morning.  As a Biomed team, we are committed to meeting those needs, no matter what time the request comes in.  We’ll ask you to share in this commitment by taking an on-call rotation once in a while.
    • Close proximity – Our biomed technicians should reside fairly close to the clinics located in the area, so they can provide adequate emergency response coverage.
