Project Leader Software (Senior)

Job description

Vitestro is a fast-growing medical robotic company. We are the first in the world to develop a fully autonomous blood-drawing device. The venipuncture device uses infrared and ultrasound to localize the vein in the arm of the patient. A robotic positioning system controls the interaction between the ultrasound probe and the arm of the patient, while an ultrasound probe creates a 3D image of the vein using artificial intelligence (a.i.). The optimal insertion location is determined by the software algorithms to position the needle in the middle of the vein of the patient and draw its blood.

Vitestro develops and tests its technology in clinical trials performed at several hospitals. With our multidisciplinary team of >35 people we strive to innovate and improve clinical diagnostics, increasing resilience of our healthcare systems.
