Hire character.
Train skills.

Where entrepreneurs, medical professionals and tech experts join forces.


Whether you have a background in healthcare, in technology, or in business – our strength is working interdisciplinarily and bringing talent together from diverse fields.

We know healthcare is not the easiest industry to innovate. Think regulation or market access. This means resilience and resourcefulness become essential qualities. We need you to believe in what you do and work towards our shared goals against all odds.

We continue to learn every day.

The digital health landscape is complex and underserved, hence very exciting for us. We believe we have to learn continuously to be able to build sustainable products and services in the space.

Your health. Our heartbeat.

We care deeply about what we do. For us the user is in the centre of everything we create. We are the right platform for you, if you like to challenge your assumptions with users and their needs and if you like to turn your learnings into well-informed solutions.

Your skills and qualification are just as important as the personal match between you and us. This is why we take the time to introduce you to a diverse group of people when you go through the application process with us.

For you, this is an opportunity to really figure out where you see yourself. For the same reason we appreciate you asking us as many questions as you have in every step of the process.
