Software Engineer

20.09.2022

ImVitro is looking for a mission-driven software engineer to join the Paris-based company to tackle a problem that concerns around 15% of couples worldwide: infertility. The ideal candidate is a software engineer who possesses strong Python skills & AWS knowledge and  has worked for at least  2 years in an agile and fast-paced startup environment. 

Today, one of the main medical solutions to infertility is in vitro fertilization (IVF). And yet, its success rates only come close to 20-30% in Europe, which means patients have to repeat this difficult journey all too often, or give it up altogether. At ImVitro, we aim at automating the embryo evaluation which is at the heart of IVF to save doctor’s time, minimize variability and increase accuracy to make IVF more transparent, robust and reproducible. Our vision is to create an easier path to parenthood to ensure families can take their planning into their own hands.

ImVitro is an early stage Deep Tech start-up backed by US & European VC funds. It has created strong partnerships with fertility centers in different countries. The company has been backed by several accelerator programs  (Entrepreneur First, DeepTech4Good, Wilco, Agoranov) and was selected as one of Station F’s Future 40 2019 start-ups.
