Careers that Change Lives
5 billion people, two-thirds of the world’s population, do not have access to safe and affordable surgical care. As a result, millions go untreated every year causing unnecessary suffering, permanent debilitation, or death. This is all caused by a shortage of surgeons, varying quality of care, rising costs of training surgeons, lack of funding and lack of accessibility to quality surgery. Digital Surgery is on a mission to change this.
With our award-winning Touch Surgery application and web platform, it is the dawn of Digital Surgery. Digital Surgery has created a digital data-driven ecosystem that uses the cutting-edge technologies like AI, augmented reality and computer vision to modernise surgical training, orchestrate surgical teams in the operating room (OR) and deliver safer surgery around the world.
Due to continued growth in Europe (this role can be based anywhere in Western Europe), we are looking for an Senior Implementation Specialist to project manage multiple concurrent full-cycle implementations of Touch Surgery at major hospital systems across EMEA, ensuring projects are executed on-time and within budget. You will be working on providing a cloud-based, surgical video library that is both secure yet accessible for surgeons and residents in training. We utilize the latest in machine-learning capabilities to ensure patient privacy while also uncovering powerful analytics and trends, directly from surgical video, in an automated and easy to use platform.
