We wish to attract people who share our passion for getting up everyday and making the world better through technology – from scientists and engineers to medical sales and business professionals. We live our mission, vision and values every single day and would welcome you to our team if you’re of like mind.

If you’re interested in being a member of the dynamic OnLume Surgical team, we invite you to view our open positions and/or contact us.

Our Mission, Vision and Values

At OnLume Surgical, we are driven to unleash the full clinical potential of fluorescence-guided surgery through the passionate, skillful application of science and innovation.

We love people as much as we love science, engineering, and medicine. We value life as much as we do innovation. Fueled by our values, we work toward excellence in our novel fluorescence-guided surgical imaging devices to advance surgical precision for the benefit of worldwide public health.

Existing fluorescence-guided surgery technology only scratches the surface of what is possible. We’re eager to show the world how our novel approach dramatically enhances surgical visualization and precision – and can improve patient outcomes. Visit our technology page for more information.

What makes OnLume uniquely prepared to achieve these monumental goals? We benefit from and are grateful for the sturdy roots we have developed in the fertile soil of the science and medical communities of the University of Wisconsin – Madison campus. Explore more here.

Now is a unique moment. Myriad FGS drugs are being developed by scientists worldwide. By seeking out and collaborating with the best of these scientists, institutions, and companies, we will optimize visibility of vessels, nerves and cancer margins in real time during surgery in ways heretofore thought impossible.

Diversity at OnLume

We believe in and appreciate environments that encourage diversity of race, creed and background. Just as the University of Wisconsin and Madison itself are magnets for rich, diverse populations, we hope to continue to be such a magnet for a very long time. Medicine does not discriminate; neither should medical technology and workplaces.

Our Madison Home

When quality of life is measured specifically among mid-sized cities, Madison frequently is one of the top three places to plant your roots. See for yourself.

With a city population of 250,000 and a metro population of 665,000, Madison is the ideal size and boasts a diverse, multi-cultural dynamic in a compact city surrounded by lakes and nature.

Madison is also one of the top centers of biotech development thanks to its incredible confluence of resources that enhance technological development; it is the capital city of the great state of Wisconsin. It is home to a legendary university system that has invested heavily in science for many decades. It is a U.S. magnet for highly skilled immigrants and U.S. residents seeking education and jobs at the University of Wisconsin – Madison as well as the businesses its graduates have fostered. These assets and others have created a dynamic ecosystem for technological innovation that is one of the finest in the nation, and indeed, the world. Learn more about how that ecosystem contributed to OnLume’s birth in Our Academic Roots.

When it comes to having fun away from work, let’s put it this way; you’ll never, ever lack for options – in Madison itself or in our surrounding communities, local and state parks and natural areas and lakes and rivers. 

Destination Madison exists for tourists, but locals enjoy all the amenities visitors do, anytime they choose.

Day trip to Milwaukee? Why not? It’s a short drive away.

How about a weekend in the City of Broad Shoulders, Chicago, Illinois? Treat yourself – it’s amazing.

Or, is it the midwest’s most dramatic topography you crave? The fascinatingly beautiful Driftless Area, ignored by glaciers that flattened other Midwest regions, bedecked by steep hills and criss-crossed with rivers and streams, beckons.

And, of course, the capital of Wisconsin is also home to the University of Wisconsin-Madison which not only helped give birth to OnLume, but is just one of the fine educational institutions in the region for people of all ages.

The people of OnLume cannot wait to share our love of our Madison home. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
