Job Description:

Are you looking for a company that cares about people’s lives and health, including yours? At Olympus, we help make people’s lives healthier, safer and more fulfilling, every day. We’re currently looking for a Senior Manager, Investor Relations. This position can be located anywhere in the United States.

Let’s inspire healthier lives, together.

Olympus is a global company based in Tokyo, Japan and represented on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The Investor Relations function, historically managed exclusively at the Tokyo HQ (OT), now requires a US presence due to the increased interest and involvement from U.S.-based institutional investors, analysts and other stakeholders. The Senior Manager, Investor Relations (IR) would therefore be responsible for managing communication between the Olympus’ IR Department in Tokyo, Olympus Corporation of the Americas (OCA) management and U.S.-based investors. This position would specifically support the evolution of the global IR program with respect to the U.S. market (e.g. investors, business, market trends), the release of information, handling of inquiries, coordination of meetings and events, providing feedback to management/IR and crisis management with respect to these stakeholders. This position will be based in the U.S. but will be a virtual part of the IR Department in Olympus Tokyo. This position will also operate under the financial laws and guidelines of both the U.S. and Japan.

About Us:

At Olympus, we put a lot of good back into the world, and what we do really matters. We are committed to making people’s lives healthier, safer and more fulfilling every day by crafting innovative optical and digital solutions in medical technologies, microscopy, industrial solutions, cameras, and audio recorders.
