As the Head of the Software Engineering at MRIguidance, you will be in a technical management role, as a team lead, responsible for the software engineering team and the development of our medical imaging software solutions. Together with the CTO and the Head of Deep learning, you will design product solutions to integrate our AI-enabled MRI-based 3D bone imaging solutions with strategic partners and hospital infrastructures.

What you tell at birthdays about your job…

“The company I work for prevents cancer in patients that need to undergo a bone scan. Nowadays, if someone needs a bone scan, radiologists use an x-ray based CT scan which exposes the patient to harmful radiation. The BoneMRI technique we developed is a radiation-free alternative that provides both bone and soft tissue information using only one machine and one exam. This reduces patients’ burden, and saves time and money for hospitals. My job is to make sure that our products become available globally through a seamless cloud solution, such that they can effectively be used for many more patients in hospitals around the world.”
