After studying mechanical engineering at the University of Arizona, Jorge moved to California and got involved in the medical device industry. He found out about Glaukos from a friend who was working there. Jorge was drawn to the casual atmosphere and the small-company feel that Glaukos continues to foster, even as it has grown.
There’s no such thing as a typical day for Jorge. Plans change, and he must adapt to address any product development issues that arise. By facilitating more cooperation among different departments, Jorge has cut down the turnaround time for receiving inspection from two months to two weeks, meaning that the finished product reaches patients more quickly.
