Position Description

Do you love “saving the day” for others?  Is tinkering with engines or other types of machines how you spend your free time?  Are you the person your friends and family turn to when something is broken? Do you thrive in a demanding environment? Does the thought of having fun at work make you want to know more?  If you answered “yes” to these questions, you could play a vital role as one of our clinic guardians.  In other words, you could be a teammate who keeps our life-giving dialysis treatments “up and running” every day in our clinics! And you would find this work challenging, fun, and very fulfilling.


Here is what you can expect when you join our Village as an Biomedical Equipment Technician:

  • A community first, company second culture based on Core Values that really matter.
  • Clinical outcomes consistently ranked above the national average.
  • Award-winning education and training across multiple career paths to help you reach your potential.
  • Performance-based rewards based on stellar individual and team contributions.
  • A comprehensive benefits package designed to enhance your health, your financial well-being and your future.
  • Dedication, above all, to caring for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure across the nation.    


    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 Virginia Beach-area, so they can provide adequate emergency response coverage.
    • Primary Coverage – Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk. Regional Coverage (on call & as needed) - Portsmouth, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News & Williamsburg.
