The Mobile Health Systems Laboratory (MHSL) in the Department of Health Sciences and Technology (D-HEST) of ETH Zurich has an opening for a

Mobile Software Engineer

Your work will include the development of innovative mobile apps to tackle some of today's toughest challenges in health care. Currently, MHSL is actively working towards several mobile health applications for both the general public as well as clinical audiences on Android and iOS platforms. Your contribution will enable self-management for patients and personalised decision-support for clinicians. You will be working in a multidisciplinary research team ranging from machine learning specialists up to medical doctors. The position is limited for one year with possibility for renewal.

A successful applicant is expected to have proven skills in mobile software development throughout the full software development life cycle. Experience in working in an agile development environment (Scrum, Kanban, etc.) is highly beneficial. Previous exposure to software architecture design and edge computing is an advantage. In addition to technical proficiency, we are looking for maturity, independence, team skills and, above all, passion to have a positive impact in the domain of health care. Note that the primary language at MHSL is English and, thus, proficiency in written and oral English is required.
