Senior Android Engineer AI Lab

Kaia is a mission focused medical technology company: 
Kaia Health was founded in 2016 with the mission of bringing affordable and accessible relief to millions of chronic disease patients. Using innovative technology, we develop digital mind-body therapies that provide better affordable care.
 
Our first product is a clinically-proven therapy for relieving back pain. Our mobile app gives users access to multimodal pain therapy, the gold standard of therapies in pain medicine. Kaia’s AI powered algorithm provides users with real-time feedback on their exercise execution using their phone. In the near future, we will release digital therapies for COPD, Osteoarthritis, and Parkinson’s disease.
 
Today we are one of the market leaders in digital therapeutics globally, with 400,000 users. We have raised a total of $22 million from investors like Optum Ventures, Balderton Capital and other top tier healthtech investors. We are building an exceptional team based in Munich and New York to succeed in our mission to bring affordable and accessible relief to millions.

  • Own the implementation of our Live Body Tracking library for Android called "Motion Coach" and extend it to reach feature parity with iOS
  • Make architectural decisions and choose the technical approach with the goal of making this library available for more Android devices (experiment with Neural Network runtime engines & optimize them together with our ML engineers)
  • Participate in product design and iteration with the cross-functional team that owns the development of our Motion Tracking Platform (you will sit in a team of mobile, backend, ML/CV engineers, sport scientist, PM, designers, etc.)
  • Prototype new feature ideas as part of the regular working mode and in dedicated hackathon sessions
  • Integrate our Motion Coach library into our therapy apps by closely working together with Android engineers across other product teams
  • The opportunity to personally grow, getting in touch with cutting edge ML/CV research (we build all vision models in-house and push the SOTA in Pose Estimation on mobile) and learn with a team that pushes for productization of ML tech to solve a real problem with broad applicability
 
Your profile: 
  • You are a strong coder with deep technical knowledge of Android mobile application development using Java or Kotlin
  • Strong software architecture skills and ability to base engineering decisions on product vision
  • Strong knowledge of data structures, design patterns, and software engineering best practices
  • Experience in rapid prototyping, an eye for design, and a natural empathy for the user
  • Strong engineering background, preferably with academic training in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or equivalent practical experience
  • Willingness and ability to work in a cross-functional, product-focused, self-managed team, and actively participate in the design of future features and iterations
 
Ideally you also have: 
  • Initial experience with Android NDK, TensorFlow Lite, or other Neural Network runtime engines
