About Digital Diagnostics:

At Digital Diagnostics, we’re on a mission to transform the quality, accessibility, and affordability of global healthcare through the automation of medical diagnosis and treatment.

Our flagship product – IDx-DR – is an artificial intelligence algorithm where the computer, not the physician, performs the diagnosis.  Built on a series of patented machine learning algorithms, our FDA-cleared software platform detects early signs of diabetic retinopathy, a debilitating eye disease that impacts 30+ million people with diabetes in the US. 

We are using everything we’ve learned from IDx-DR to expand our AI platform across different therapeutic areas like skin cancer.  To deliver on our mission, we need to expand our team of highly skilled and motivated team members to help us change healthcare for the better!

  • Work with world-renowned computer scientists and clinicians who are pushing the limits of artificial intelligence, computer vision, and machine learning in medicine.
  • Tackle complex challenges and projects with the highest levels of quality and execution for audiences that include top technologists, the FDA, and world-leading healthcare providers.
  • Push the accessibility and quality of healthcare to new heights to improve the lives of millions of people.
  • Contribute to a rapidly growing startup that lives by its mission to do “AI the Right Way”.

What We Believe:

At Digital Diagnostics, we’re doing “AI the right way” by building healthcare solutions that are safe, equitable, and accessible. We’re not only building a platform; we’re also building a community that emulates these values. We believe that inclusion and equity in healthcare start with a community of collaborators that celebrates human differences including race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, human need, veteran status, political affiliation, and religion. We value what makes each person unique and create a place for everyone to thrive as we build towards shared goals. We’re committed to continuous learning and are striving to create a principled workplace while continuing to impact the world around us.
