Position location: Rehovot Science Park /Kibbutz Hatzerim

Capacity: Full time (Hybrid)

About the Position

At Picodya Technologies, we develop revolutionary diagnostic platform capable of performing laboratory grade serology and molecular diagnostics at the Point of Care (PoC). We have successfully built our B-Matrix platform based on our proprietary high density microfluidic chip and a set of disposables capable of precisely handling Picolitre sample volume.
The B-Matrix can simultaneously test an array of Bio-Markers from a small sample volume in under 15 minutes, based on our own developed robotics, optics and computer vision algorithms.
We are now looking for a seasoned technological engineer with great professional and leadership skills to lead engineering projects aiming to take our prototype platform from R&D to manufacturing and operations for scale-up and Design4Manufacturing readiness.
