Positively Different

Mission

Tandem Diabetes Care creates new possibilities for people living with diabetes, their loved ones, and the healthcare providers supporting them through a positively different experience.

Values

Innovate, Every Day. 

We rely on new ideas, and people who keep their minds open to how to make them happen, to deliver products and experiences that can change people’s lives. When faced with a revolutionary concept or simply a better way, we try to say yes (or at least maybe) before we say no.

People First. 

Caring for the people who use our pumps is our top priority. We are fiercely loyal to them and the entire diabetes community. This starts with developing a deep understanding of their daily experiences, triumphs, and challenges. When making business decisions, we always ask ourselves and our partners, “how will this impact the people who count on us?”

No shortcuts.

Making things more efficient and cost-effective is great! Taking shortcuts is not. People’s lives depend on us. Our partners trust us. So we hold ourselves to the highest standards and deliver exceptional quality in everything we do. We do what it takes to get it right, and we’re proud of it.

Team up. 

How we work as a team is as important as what we deliver. Transparency, honest communication, and partnering to solve problems are critical to our success. We bring people along to ensure we’re all on the same path and create the space to respectfully challenge ideas.

Stay awesome.

We value and embrace every person at Tandem—their unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Here you can do great work and be yourself, flip flops and all. Through universal respect and genuine care, we trust one another to do what’s best for all of us.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our work requires the experience, opinions and actions of many.  We believe a diverse culture is necessary for getting innovative ideas off the ground. Employment at Tandem is based solely upon individual merit and qualifications directly related to getting the job done, so we can continue raising the bar in the field of diabetes technology, treatment, and support.

"“I’ve been advocating for behavioral science in digital health for over a decade and Tandem Diabetes Care has valued human factors research and user centered design since its inception. To work at a digital health company that not only values, but prioritizes behavioral science is pretty special.”"

""Designing new features, learning new technologies, and exploring software behavior are some of the challenges that push me to learn and grow as a programmer. Tandem has also provided the opportunities for me to improve myself in many other areas including writing, interviewing, and product management.""

Social impact

Eco-friendly

As the only rechargeable insulin pumps on the market, our insulin pumps have kept an estimated 6.3 million disposable batteries out of landfills since becoming available in 2012.1 We’re proud to do our small part to help reduce the number of disposable batteries going into our landfills.

Community Partners

We understand that for many people, peer-support plays a key role in successful diabetes management. Tandem supports a broad spectrum of people and organizations working hard to improve the lives of people who live and work with diabetes.
