Penumbra Employee Testimonial Don Vu

At Penumbra, we are changing the paradigm of treatment for stroke, and continuing to expand our technologies and portfolios, such that they touch the entire vascular system.

Don Director of Quality Engineering

We encourage each other to do more. We lend hands. We offer help. And you don’t have to ask. Great teamwork.

Viseth Lead Production Builder

At Penumbra, finding ways to improve what we do is an important part of everyone’s job. Cross-functional teams identify challenges and cooperate to drive solutions every day. We learn from our challenges and move forward as a stronger team because of the problems we have solved.


Everyone gets in a room and figures things out as a team. The ability to collaborate, to see the bigger picture and our role in it, is a huge part of what makes people successful here.

Holly Director of R&D

I have the freedom and flexibility to be really creative to find solutions for our customers. I thrive in an environment that is solution-oriented to ensure we are truly being a partner to our customers.

Collette Director of Strategic Accounts

We encourage people to take on tasks they may never have imagined doing. We have learned that our best investment is the one we make in each employee, helping to grow their skills and knowledge, and empowering them to take the lead in the future.


I took the initiative to let my supervisor and lead know that I wanted to learn more, and always asked how I could help. They immediately took me up on my offer, and got me engaged with more than just building the product. I wouldn’t be here as a supervisor at this moment if it wasn’t for that supervisor who said, ‘Hey, you’re ready, go for it.’

Cheryl Production Supervisor

The future of Penumbra excites me because of the incredible innovation that happens here. The product is constantly evolving, and as a company we are always growing. I wonder…what will they think of next? What will I be working on next?

Aicha QA Product Surveillance Specialist

Penumbra offers top-tier benefits that enable our employees to provide what’s best for their families and build for the future. In addition to medical, dental, vision, and life insurance, full-time Penumbra employees can take advantage of a 401(k) match and an Employee Stock Purchase Plan.


Even as a relatively new engineer, I’m doing work that I’m really excited about and I have a lot of responsibility. I get to run a project taking a product from R&D to commercialization with an R&D counterpart. It’s not something people would get to do elsewhere.

Nisha Manufacturing Engineer

We take every opportunity to celebrate wins. When new products are launched, everyone involved, across multiple departments, gets together to celebrate. That in itself goes a long way, not just to say thank you, but to inspire people to say, ‘let’s do it again!’
