Join Pacu Technology Limited to delve into the field of DentalTech and discover the roles they have available to get involved with.

Supported by a board of dental professors, consultants, and an ML engineer based at King's College London and Oxford University, we aim to disrupt the UK dental industry with our software that will be able to automate dental radiograph analysis and diagnosis (X-Rays). The clinical software will benefit both patients and dentists by saving dentists' time and allowing them to treat more patients (waiting time for an NHS dentist can be up to 3 years), and by reducing medical errors and medico-legal issues. We were one of the top 10 finalists of the KCL Entrepreneurship Institute Idea Factory Competition last year.

We are looking for a part-time/full-time new grad/post-grad level software engineer (with experience in machine learning and Tensorflow) to join us. This would begin as a temporary paid role, but could very well become permanent in the future. The chosen candidate will be working under the supervision of a scientific software engineer with a PhD and more than a decade of senior experience in ML in medical imaging.




Want to learn how to create your first website completely from scratch?

Join us for a 2 hour workshop to cover the basics of HTML and CSS.
