Medical Education Technologies, Inc. (METI) is currently hiring 35+ people to work at its Sarasota headquarters. The company manufactures patient simulators for training purposes.
"Our patient simulators offer nurses and other future healthcare providers-in-training the ability to practice their skills before interacting with human patients," says Holly Young, director of human resources at METI. "Our simulators can emulate heart attacks, open heart surgery and other medical symptoms and procedures."
The company started in 1996 with five employees, currently employs 223 and is growing. "Currently we have 36 positions we are looking to fill," Young says. "We are hiring clinical educators, a director of quality, software engineers, a customer service manager, QA engineers, customer service technicians and an e-marketing specialist."
According to Young, the company is hiring due to the amount of clients it has obtained. "Sales have been up, which is really driving the hiring," Young says. "We also acquired the company that makes the web-based learning program, Learning Space
, which has helped business as well."
Learning Space allows customers the ability to train and conduct performance assessments through an online software application.
Young says that in addition to the qualifications for each position, METI is looking for certain qualities and characteristics in potential employees. "We are looking for self-starters with an entrepreneurial spirit," Young says. "Nursing or healthcare experience is a plus, to know the methodology of what we make and how it is used."
METI is located at 6300 Edgelake Drive in Sarasota
