About Neurocast

We specialize in passively monitoring patients. We help patients, doctors, and researchers better understand the course and cause of Neurodegenerative diseases. We believe that much of the data that could tell us something about how you are doing – mentally, physically, or emotionally – is hidden in how we interact with technology. We’ve made it our mission to turn everyday digital interactions into clinically approved outcomes, enabling doctors & researchers to passively measure individual patients performance in daily life. With our technology this can be done completely unobtrusive, with privacy embedded by design and available for everyone to join.

Why work at Neurocast

At Neurocast we like to say: “Because we care and we can!”. If you want to work with teammates driven to make the world a better place? At Neurocast, you get both a career and a cause.

If you desire a fast paced, test-driven, collaborative and iterative engineering environment. Neurocast is a unique opportunity to join a new, multidisciplinary team of creative and passionate individuals destined to change the way fatigue is being measured.

We do not consider resumes from recruitment agencies or outsourcing companies.

Job opening Software tester (internship)
