Life at Glaukos

Generous. Innovative. Leadership-driven. Family-oriented. Socially responsible. These are just a few of the terms our employees use to describe their experiences as a part of the Glaukos family.

Those may seem like big aspirations, but here at Glaukos, we recognize the deep significance and profound meaning that comes from knowing that we can make a meaningful difference by helping improve eyesight of people worldwide. And because we’re a rapidly growing company with a dynamic, fast-paced culture, individual employees here are empowered with more diverse and enriching challenges than might not be possible at a larger company, and more fulfillment in knowing every person and every task is directly tied to making a difference in the life of others.

Of course, you can be sure we manage to find time for fun at Glaukos, with activities like:

  • Experiential service awards
  • Company-sponsored events such as family picnics, baseball games, bowling, and karaoke
  • Professional development programs
  • Holiday events for the whole family including Halloween pumpkin carving and costume contests, company-wide Thanksgiving meals, and holiday gift exchanges and ugly sweater contests

…As well as events cultivated by our employees’ own interests and passions, like Flip-Flop Fridays, dress-up Superhero Days, and Trivia Nights!

Our work environment is both casual and familiar, one that balances the values of hard work and dedication with humility and mutual respect—the kind of culture that fosters capable individuals and strong teams.
