The Company

Machine Medicine Technologies is facilitating the next generation of neurotherapeutics by building software for the intelligent, personalised optimisation of neuromodulation and other precision therapeutics.

Their flagship product, Kelvin, is in use at multiple deep brain stimulation (a form of neuromodulation) sites across the globe, enabling the collection of large datasets of unparalleled quality. This data is being utilised to develop a SaMD (Software as Medical Device) tool for automated clinical assessment of Parkinson’s disease. Recently, the technology was awarded Breakthrough Device Designation by the FDA.

In addition, Machine Medicine is a scientifically productive and technically ambitious entity. We have published papers in numerous high-quality, peer-reviewed journals including Sensors, Intelligence-Based Medicine and Nature Parkinson’s Disease. 

Based in central London (Bermondsey), we are growing rapidly with 36 FTEs currently, and have raised over £5M in dilutive and non-dilutive funding. In addition to that, Machine Medicine is now generating 7-figure annual revenues through its commercial activities.


A fast-moving startup, with an energetic and dynamic team, looking to disrupt the MedTech industry with AI. Our employees are encouraged to take on the sort of career development opportunities that cannot be found at larger, more established, companies. We are in the highly regulated medical device industry, so our engineering team has to have an even greater focus on quality, usability and versatility. We also like to blow off steam, whether that’s playing a few rounds of table tennis in the office, or arranging an online gaming session.

About the role

The CSO will work closely with the CEO, CTO and Head of Quality to align algorithmic development, publications and clinical validation with the company’s broader objectives.

He or she will also manage a growing team of data and research scientists to ensure objectives are met in a timely manner and to a high standard.

The position represents a superb opportunity to make major novel contributions to the field of medicine while at the same time shaping the products and culture in an early-stage organisation.

The role is onsite first, with discretionary WFH when required or necessary.

About you
