Mission & Company Introduction: Porous GmbH was founded in 2021 with the goal of inventing a product that will revolutionize osteoporosis diagnostics worldwide. In the near future Porous will move to a brand-new location at the Potsdam Science Park, which can be reached from Berlin in about 30 minutes by public transportation. Due to Covid, mobile working will be deeply integrated into the company culture. You will be one of the first team members which will give you the opportunity to move a lot yourself and you can take away a lot for yourself. We embrace innovation, curiosity and flexibility. With this position we expect you to: Porous GmbH was founded in 2021 with the goal of inventing a product that will revolutionize osteoporosis diagnostics worldwide using intelligent algorithms and harmless ultrasound. Current measurement methods cannot detect the onset of osteoporosis but rather approximate the bone-loss associated relative fracture risk, typically at advanced stages of the disease progression. Early detection is vital because the highest fracture incidence is not seen in people diagnosed to have osteoporosis but in those diagnosed to be healthy or osteopenic (losing bone mass), rendering osteoporosis one of the most underdiagnosed diseases in the western world. Early detection technology to overcome this clinical need was not available, until today. The Porous solution uses quantitative ultrasound (QUS) technology with patented intelligent algorithms being able to measure the cortical bone quality to a microscopic pore level without radiation hazards. The intelligent algorithms overcome the limitations of ultrasound imaging in the bone where waves are scattered, making it impossible to analyze the cortical bone (micro) structure. This unique technology can measure for the first time not only the cortical thickness, but also the microscopic pores and pore-size distribution in human cortical bone of the peripheral skeleton. In the near future, Porous will move to a brand-new location at the Potsdam Science Park, which can be reached from Berlin in about 30 minutes by public transportation. Mobile working will be deeply integrated into the company culture. You will be one of the first team members which will give you the opportunity to move a lot yourself and you can take away a lot for yourself. We embrace innovation, curiosity and flexibility. Your role and responsibilities:

  • Development of software applications for medical ultrasound technologies
  • Optimization and improvement of analysis routines. Especially parallel and GPU methods will be necessary
  • Ensuring the entire stack is designed and built for speed and scalability
  • Development and implementation of algorithms for signal processing
  • Improvement and adaptation of Matlab functions and code transfer to C++
Your skills:
  • Completed university degree in the field of information technology/computer science (or another comparable discipline in combination with comprehensive knowledge of computer science)
  • Proven working experience in software engineering
  • Comprehensive programming knowledge in high-level languages (preferably C++) on Linux and Windows platforms
  • Experience in the use of RAD tools such as MATLAB
  • Proficiency with Git
  • Appreciation for clean and well documented code
