Head of Software - CloudCath -San Francisco

What we do:
CloudCath is redefining infectious disease remote monitoring for millions of patients globally.
Our SF based team just closed a seed round and we’re seeking excellent talent to join us leading
this exciting mission.

Patients rely on implantable catheters to insert/drain fluid from their bodies on a regular basis
to address multiple chronic/acute care conditions. Living with and managing this catheter in an
outpatient setting without continuous medical supervision can be quite daunting for patients
and results in multiple complications, most notable of which is infection origination.

Existing standards of care still rely on patients compliance with patient dependent non-data
driven infection monitoring methods (such as the newspaper test), a state we find out-right
unacceptable in 2018 with all this technological advancement at our disposal.

For our initial market - End Stage Renal Disease - the CloudCath device and real-time remote
monitoring platform will enable physicians to remotely detect any originating infections 6 hours
from origination, an order of magnitude improvement from the 5 days existing standard of care
average. We will save more than 3000 US lives annually from certain death (based on existing
infection driven hospitalization mortality rates) and $Billions in unnecessary hospitalization

What you do:
Our prototypes are very successful in our clinical trial currently happening in Guadalajara,
Mexico. Our core technology is clinically de-risked, driving our most recent funding round.
With the exception of on-chip firmware and a basic AWS setup for our data analysis work to
date, we haven’t begun coding yet. You will own building our V1 HIPAA compliant SW. This will
include total data flow from our hardware devices through our cloud-based ML infrastructure
to both patient and physician UIs.

This is not a simple execution based task, the level of product strategy,user-focusedd design &
documentation required for our FDA filing is daunting to most, and initially you will be doing
the majority of the work yourself. If this sounds appealing, congrats on an initial cultural fit and
we look forward to hearing from you (more traditional Job description below).
