MedShare

Bridging the gap between surplus and need.

Job Opportunities

MedShare is a non-profit organization that has a dual mission of providing humanitarian medical aid to developing countries and of helping to improve our local environment.  MedShare collects surplus medical goods that are discarded by U.S. hospitals.  Shipments are then sent to qualified healthcare facilities in more than 95 developing nations around the world.

Working at MedShare is a challenging yet extremely rewarding experience. Every day is different here, whether we are shipping a container of medical supplies to Kenya, educating and working with our volunteers or hosting a head of state.

Although MedShare has distinct departments, staff work together as a team to support and enrich each other's efforts. It is this open and dynamic environment that has drawn the best people to MedShare and kept them with the organization for years.

MedShare has a competitive benefits package offering all full-time employees (32+ hours) complete health and dental coverage. In addition, MedShare offers an attractive paid vacation schedule and paid sick time. The organization provides ample opportunities to learn about global health issues, medical supply chains and philanthropic fundraising.

MedShare is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based on age, gender, race or ethnic origin, religion, veteran status, physical or medical condition, political affiliations or sexual orientation.
