Project Manager (m/f/d) AI-based cancer diagnostics


We’re a Hamburg, Germany-based start-up with the mission to democratize cancer diagnostics. We apply cutting-edge artificial intelligence to support pathologists in diagnosing cancer quicker and more accurately. Our AI solutions are the world’s most widely used AI-based digital pathology tools and were the first AI to be used in clinical routine diagnostics in the USA and EU and +10.000 patients have been diagnosed with the help of our AI. We have been voted as one of the top 10 German startups of 2020 by the German Entrepreneurship Price Committee.

We solve one of the most pressing challenges in modern healthcare: Demand for complex medical image analysis is increasing rapidly, but the number of cancer experts remains stagnant. We build clinical support tools for visual diagnosis using state-of-the-art deep learning. Our tools help cancer experts deliver faster and more reproducible diagnoses and so that the experts can focus on areas where their human expertise is indispensable. Optimizing cancer diagnostics with machine learning is challenging and requires the brightest minds.
