Working at Vitrolife
At Vitrolife Group we are around 1.100 colleagues in more than 25 countries, working to achieve our vision to fulfil the dream of having a healthy baby. Together we develop, produce and market advanced, effective, and safe products and services for assisted reproduction (IVF). We support customers worldwide – always with sustainability in mind. Based on science and advanced research capabilities, our aim is to deliver products and services for the excellence in the entire fertility journey. If it is important for you to work for a company that has a strong purpose, we are curious to get to know you!
We were founded 1994 in Gothenburg, Sweden, and this is where our head office is located. We are a public company, traded at the stock exchange in Stockholm.
Our organisation consists of three Business Areas: Consumables, Technologies and Genetic Services. Our Business Areas are responsible for developing and producing products and services for fertility treatments. Our scientific legacy is strong and our research capabilities, in-house and as well through close collaboration with leading researchers in our field, is well recognized. While we thrive on innovative development of products and services, we are constantly considering the possibility of acquiring companies or product areas that will complement our own development. In November 2021, Vitrolife acquired Igenomix, a world leading company specialized in genetic testing, and we welcomed more than 700 new colleagues to the Vitrolife Group. By combining Igenomix’s portfolio of reproductive genetic testing services with Vitrolife’s best-in-class IVF medical device portfolio, we create a global leader in reproductive health, being able to support clinics and patients even better across the fertility journey. Today, we have integrated Igenomix fully into the Vitrolife Group, and it is principally making up the Business Area Genetic Services.
Besides the three Business Areas, we have three Group Functions for business and support. First, a central Sales & Marketing organisation which organises sales and customer services globally on all continents. Collaborating in geographic market regions, EMEIA (Europe, Middle East, India and Africa), Asia, Japan and the Pacific, and the Americas we are more relevant than ever as a business partner to our customers. Marketing and sales are directed towards clinics, both public and private sector, both directly and in cooperation with local distributors. The Group has two additional global business support functions: Human Resources & Sustainability, and as well Finance, IT & Legal.
Being a competence intensive company, we acknowledge that it is our employees that create our leading position in the market. We have a clear vision to help people fulfil the dream of having a healthy baby, and we make a difference for clinics and their patients and for each other with an employer proposition full of quality, development, and joy. As we keep growing, we are set to leverage the benefits of being a nimble niche company characterized by the combination of our global presence and the value of togetherness, and with a strong scientific legacy.
Quality, Forward, Contribute and Together are our core values and guide our actions into being the company we prefer to be also in the future. We have a strong commitment to sustainability, and it is by sharing knowledge, teamwork, and by clear accountability that we gear Vitrolife Group to gauge our positive and lessen our negative impact more effectively and more consciously. As our business contribute to putting more people on earth, we assume our part of the responsibility for enabling all children – born through IVF or not - to be able to live prosperous lives on this planet for generations to come.
“We are a leading-edge medical device and diagnostics company, and it is us as colleagues that create our strong position in the market. With the clear vision to help people fulfil the dream of having a healthy baby, our products and services are available in more than 110 countries in the world. Our company culture and the values of our brands are strongly connected; Together – all the way, and With science on our side. This way, we make a difference for clinics and their patients and for each other.
Vitrolife’s business is a source of joy, and it is therefore natural that all colleagues should feel joy in their work. Together is the value that most of all guides work in the Group, every day.”
