Jobs at LST

Create a surgical robot for diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

Help improve breast cancer treatment! We are looking for outstanding engineers and developers, preferably women, to play a foundational role in creating a new surgical robot to transform the treatment of breast cancer. Use your professional skills to help improve the standard of care for the many millions of women facing this awful disease around the world.

The goal is to significantly improve the patient experience of necessary procedures such as biopsies and lesion removal. Robotic techniques enable highly precise, repeatable procedures that are minimally invasive, minimally painful, and always as good as the best a human doctor can do “by hand”.

As part of the founding design team, your views will be heard: you will crucially influence the core R&D and product design and development. You will be joining an early-stage company founded in Vancouver, well-financed, and led by an experienced team.

For all positions:

You will have training and/or experience that make it clear you are highly motivated to make a difference in healthcare. You will have a related Bachelor’s degree and might have a Master’s degree or above, and 3 to 5 years’ experience in the design of medical devices or similar systems.

Compensation will be consistent with our expectation that we need the best to succeed, and for key early hires will include stock options. A relocation package is available if you will be moving to Vancouver from elsewhere.

LST is committed to being an inclusive, diverse, and fun workplace.

Software Development Lead

You will be a humble team player, a good communicator, and a key member of the development team. You will be responsible for designing, implementing, and verifying key software systems including medical image analysis, data management, user interfaces, and others – including the design and validation of novel algorithms. Prior experience architecting image processing systems is required; you will work closely with the rest of the design team (e.g. electrical, mechanical, systems) to deliver a well-integrated product.

  • Have experience in medical device development (e.g. ISO 13485, IEC 60601, ISO 10218, etc.)
  • Have experience in 3D medical image processing, and ideally computer vision and general signal processing. You will have directly implemented algorithms in these areas.
  • Have shipped product.
  • Are a systems-level thinker.
  • Are legally entitled to work in Canada.
