Job description

Once in a career opportunity: help improve healthcare for society’s most vulnerable

Oxehealth gives doctors, nurses and carers more time for hands on care where and when it’s needed most. Our technology is an assistant for when they can’t be there, paying attention to every room they are supervising.

We can monitor heart rate and breathing rate totally contact free, using standard digital cameras, with medical grade accuracy. We can also monitor human activity, behaviours and safety.

As one medical director remarked, “your technology will change the practice of medicine”. Founded by the Head of Engineering at Oxford University, Professor Lionel Tarassenko, we recently won the prestigious Colin Campbell Mitchell Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering, awarded to the group who “made the greatest contribution to the advancement of any field of engineering within the period of the last four years”.

With increasing numbers of people living with chronic conditions and growing elderly populations around the world, more and more people need to be looked after by a small group of clinicians and carers – Oxehealth’s solutions will make this possible.

Our software is currently being deployed in mental health, care homes and nursing homes, police, prisons, home care, and acute hospitals. The BBC recently featured our technology in use: watch here.

Oxehealth: scaling up

2017 saw us leave the Commercial Research phase, close early sales and complete the first permanent installations of our technology. 2018 is seeing the first large commercial sales opportunities come to a close, the first overseas installations and the first sales via third party integrators.

Year on year, we aim to increase room numbers ten-fold. We are backed by ambitious, long term investors including IP Group plc.
