About Us

Seer is developing technology to revolutionise the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions, with a special focus on epilepsy. Our mission is to deliver deep personalised clinical insights and advance patient experience with leading-edge technology.

Our technology consists of wearable devices, a cloud platform and machine learning systems. These systems are at the core of our at-home video-EEG-ECG monitoring and diagnostic service - the first of its kind. Seer has already made a big impact across Australia over the last four years and is now building for international expansion.

About the Role

We’re looking to hire an experienced Data Science Manager to help us grow our team and achieve the ambitious goals we have in bringing machine learning to the diagnostic monitoring space. These range from streamlining our current clinical diagnostic services through detection of events in biomedical signals such as EEG to developing algorithms to realise the potential of new wearable and implantable devices. Underlying much of this work will also be a focus on medical device regulatory approval of certain algorithms (e.g. FDA).
