About us

Our mission is to revolutionise diagnostic methods to build a world where disease is prevented rather than treated. We focus on providing digital diagnostic infrastructure to drive the earlier detection of disease. Our technologies use artificial intelligence and novel biomarkers to unlock clinical insight and improve patient outcomes.

We develop and deploy digital diagnostic services for research and clinical use. Our services are designed to dignify and empower, placing patients at the heart of our services.

We are committed to inclusion and diversity and believe that having a team that reflects a broad range of experiences and perspectives will help us build software that is intuitive for our users (administrators, scientists, pathologist, doctors and nurses) and leads to the best outcomes for patients. We especially encourage applications from people who are underrepresented in the software sector and/or who have non-traditional education or career experiences.

We interview on a rolling basis, starting with a brief call to discuss what we're doing and whether it resonates with you.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
