Senior Software Engineer (Data Platform) at Kaia Health
Munich, DE
Kaia is a mission focused medical technology company:
In 2016 we set out with the mission to make effective, evidence-based therapies available to patients who suffer from chronic diseases. As back pain is the number one cause of disability worldwide with over 1 billion affected people, we built our first product, a clinically-proven mind-body therapy app, to help people with back pain.
 
At Kaia, we take proven offline therapy techniques and transform them into app-based therapies. However, in this process, some important aspects of these therapies can be lost. Our focus at Kaia Health AI Lab is to bring back those aspects by leveraging machine intelligence. For example, our “Motion Coaching” technology allows users to get real-time feedback on how well they do their exercises. Motion Coach utilizes only the smartphone’s built-in camera and neural networks, and requires no additional hardware. Our app is the only one worldwide that can tell users if they are doing their exercises correctly. See trailer.
 
In the future, the AI Lab will also work on advancing our therapy personalization engine, as well as developing digital biomarkers for therapeutic purposes for our late-stage pipeline covering COPD, osteoarthritis, and Parkinson’s disease.

  • Take over the development lead and product ownership of our data platform
  • Build out and maintain our data processing pipeline that can handle terabyte scale video data and millions of images per day
