What’s it Like Working for Johnson and Johnson?

Working with Johnson & Johnson isn’t just any job. Every day, we’re creating life-changing treatments for infectious diseases, improving global health equity, and developing medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and consumer health products that enhance quality of life for people worldwide. From 3D printing and robotics that are transforming surgical procedures to drones delivering vaccines to remote regions, our work is bigger than all of us.

And our workdays are as unique as we are.

Your day might start with a virtual meditation session with your work group, or a brainstorm with global teammates in a tech-enabled collaboration space. If you’re working on-campus for the day, you might grab lunch with a colleague to chat about your latest breakthrough, then find a quiet spot to do some research and respond to emails. If you’re on-site at an industry-leading manufacturing facility, lab, or innovation center, you might collect samples for testing, make adjustments to a surgical robot, or carve out some time for personalized professional development to help you reach your future career goals. You might close out your afternoon presenting your latest findings with your team or following up with a patient or consumer.

But no matter what you’re working on or how you spend your time, your work is important.

Why we partnered with Women in Data

At Johnson & Johnson, we seek out best-in-class talent with unique backgrounds and perspectives from every corner of the globe to forge new paths in pharmaceuticals, medical devices and consumer health products.

We consider each and every employee an individual and respect their diversity and dignity whilst recognising their merit and values. Because when people feel like they belong—like they can be their authentic selves—innovation happens.

As a business, we’re responsible not only to the communities in which we live and work, but also to the global community. Touching the lives of over a billion people every day, improving the health and wellbeing of those around us, providing access to medicines and treatment to those who need them, and supporting communities around the world during difficult times are just some of the reasons why we do what we do each and every day.

We’re deeply dedicated to gender equity and you’ll see that reflected in the makeup of our data science community. And that’s why partnering with Women In Data is exciting for us. As the world’s largest and most broadly based healthcare company, there’s no limit to the impact you can make. Join us and leverage our expansive data sets to help address the most pressing health challenges of our time, from HIV to bladder cancer, lupus and COVID-19.

We’re looking forward to working with Women in Data and the breakthroughs we’ll accomplish together.
