About the job

GTX medical is developing a groundbreaking new therapy to restore locomotion for spinal cord injury patients. This technology is already being actively used and evaluated with patients with impressive results. GTX medical is therefore frequently cited in international media (most recently in June 2020).

To realize this novel therapy, we are developing a series of high-tech medical devices, including devices that are implanted in the human body. We’re also developing 2 Apps aimed at a clinician and patient as end-user, that can be used to setup and control the system. One of the Apps is already being actively used in the field, whereas the other is soon to be released.

We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to join our very professional and fun App development team as a contractor. Our Apps feature a high standard of reliability and UX. The team follows a SCRUM-process with 2-week cycles and give demos and create new releases periodically. In addition to development, you will be offered freedom for engaging in activities such as assisting and joining therapy sessions with patients where our products are used in the field and talking to our end-users firsthand. But this is entirely up to you and your wishes and goals.

What you will do

  • You will be developing Apps that clinicians and patients use to program the implanted spinal cord stimulation system. This App interfaces with the system using BLE (Bluetooth Low-energy). Experience with using BLE is strongly preferred.
  • You will work together with our software architect and multidisciplinary engineering team in making and documenting design choices. You will work together with our usability engineer/product designer to realize the UI.
  • You have a bachelor or master’s in software engineering with proven substantial experience in App Development, specifically Android (Java)
  • You have at least 5 years’ experience in programming apps for mobile devices.
  • You are familiar with wireless communication protocols like Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) and reliability challenges that come with these protocols
  • You are familiar with development frameworks such as RxJava and Dagger.
  • You are familiar with how a professional CI/CD setup looks like, including the use of automated testing (Unit and UI testing: Espresso and Cucumber) and Jenkins.
  • Next to Android Development, we are developing support Apps for Windows in .NET. Experience and affinity with .NET development is a pre.
  • Preferably are familiar with releasing Apps through Google Play and with accompanying Google frameworks such as Firebase Analytics.
  • In addition you may have an understanding or experience with algorithm development and the TensorFlow framework 
  • You are an energetic, hands-on individual and enjoy working in an international, cross-functional environment within a young and growing company;
  • You communicate fluently in English as this is our company language; proficiency in Dutch is highly appreciated
