Job Description

Sedimentum is a Swiss Health-Tech startup which designs its own IoT sensors, software, and machine learning (ML) algorithms to protect vulnerable individuals and provide peace of mind to their loved ones. Our focus is on seniors who increasingly live alone and are at risk of health-threatening emergencies (e.g., falls) which often go undetected. We believe that current technological solutions addressing this trend are insufficient, stigmatizing or simply out-of-date. For this, we drive innovation through our custom-manufactured hardware sensors, which can sense human motion without the need to be worn, and the development of novel algorithms to detect emergencies and call for help automatically.
