Virgo is looking for a Senior Front-End Engineer to lead future development of our HIPAA compliant cloud video portal for endoscopy. Since launching in 2018, Virgo has helped physicians from leading medical centers including The Mayo Clinic, Northwestern, and Mass General capture over 175K endoscopy videos — the largest dataset of its kind. We recently expanded the platform to include machine learning algorithms that automatically analyze these videos and identify patients who are likely good candidates for clinical trials.
In this role, you will be responsible for developing and deploying new features into our cloud video portal. Some of the features currently existing in our platform include:
- Video archiving - search, folders, tagging, etc.
- Video playback
- Video annotation for machine learning applications
Top priorities for development:
- Consumption of machine learning video analysis output and video overlay
- Improved video annotation interface
- Overhaul of portal architecture
- Development of new sub-portal for clinical trial recruitment
At Virgo, out cloud video portal is the primary point of engagement for our users — doctors, research staff, and even patients. We are consistently looking for new ways to improve the feature set of the portal to meet these different user needs. We are looking for an engineer who can take ownership of these evolving development requirements and tackle them effectively.
No clinical knowledge required...we'll get you trained up to speed with our Colon Class :)
About Virgo Surgical Video Solutions, Inc.
Virgo is the leading cloud video capture, management, and AI analysis platform for endoscopic medical procedures. Since launching in 2018, we've helped physicians from leading medical centers including The Mayo Clinic, Northwestern, and Mass General capture over 130,000 procedure videos — the largest data set of its kind.
Our platform consists of a small device — similar in form factor to an AppleTV — that connects to any existing endoscopy system. The Virgo capture device automatically and securely captures procedure videos and transfers them to our HIPAA compliant cloud storage and web portal.
We're currently expanding the Virgo platform to include tools that automatically identify patients who are good candidates for clinical trials — starting with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). These tools incorporate AI analysis of procedure videos, coupled with information from the clinical medical record. The typical IBD trial site recruits only 1 patient per year. Virgo is working with leading pharma companies to accelerate trial site recruitment to 2 patients per month, which will help get new treatments to market faster and generate hundreds of millions of dollars in additional revenue for pharma companies.
Long-term, we are building the most comprehensive longitudinal dataset of endoscopy videos and will continue to leverage this dataset for new AI applications. One such example is in the space of real-time polyp detection for colorectal cancer screening (see case study with Google's Coral EdgeTPU system: https://coral.ai/news/virgo-svs).
We're a hard working bunch, yet flexible when needed to respect the importance of personal time. We're very open about our successes and the challenges facing the company, highlighted by a bi-weekly strategy meeting. More than anything, we really care about improving healthcare. All new employees go through an 8 week Colon Class to learn about anatomy, pathology, procedures, and health technology!
