In 1996, he co-founded Rubicon Medical Inc and served as its president and CEO, eventually taking Rubicon public. In 2005, the release says Boston Scientific acquired Rubicon Medical, and Linder worked for Boston Scientific until leaving in 2006 to become president/CEO and director of Coherex Medical. Linder also serves as director of Vital Access Corporation, the release notes.

Linder is a co-founder and director of CoNextions, an orthopedics company, and serves as president/CEO. He is a co-founder and Chairman of the Board of BIO-Utah. He also founded the MD4 (Medical Devices, Diagnostics, and Drug Delivery) annual life science meeting for Utah.

The release states that Linder holds a variety of US and international-issued patents and pending patent applications for medical technologies in the treatment of coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular interventions, neuro-interventional radiology, structural heart disease, heart failure, percutaneous ventricular assist devices, soft-tissue tendon repair, and tendon to bone fixation and tenodesis.
