Bodyport is a virtual cardiac clinic aimed at reducing the burden of heart disease through personalized, evidence-based care. In just one daily step, our novel sensors and algorithms predict changes in health status, enabling early, optimized interventions that significantly improve outcomes. Bodyport is initially targeting heart failure, a chronic condition affecting over 6 million Americans and a leading cause of hospitalizations (1M/year) and healthcare spending ($35B/year). Bodyport is backed by leading investors including Initialized Capital, Playground Global, Boehringer Ingelheim, Y Combinator, and Rock Health.
As Lead Algorithms and Signal Processing Engineer, you will oversee the development and implementation of algorithms and signal processing techniques that power the detection, prediction, and prevention of heart disease. You will lead the development of our signal processing infrastructure used to decipher complex patterns in rich time-series data. You will have the opportunity to work with novel signal data, helping discover new non-invasive biomarkers that diagnose disease and save lives.
Full compensation packages are based on candidate experience and certifications.
