Exciting position for a data scientist

People with a mental disability or dementia are often insufficiently able to express their emotions, pain or discomfort and experience unnecessary stress. As a result, their behaviour is not always understood and care professionals can not always provide the necessary attention and meaningful care. As a data scientist you contribute to the happiness and quality of life of these vulnerable people by giving them a voice through the HUME. The HUME is a digital system that interpretes emotions such as stress, sadness, joy and pain with the aid of sensor information (from a number of indicative physiological body parameters, such as heart rate, skin conductance, saturation and ECG), via pattern recognition and self-learning models. Based on passion for the target group and knowledge of the technology, you develop and implement data science models for the further advancement of the HUME system.

You work as a data scientist in a high-tech start-up, located in the bustling heart of Strijp-S, Eindhoven, and will closely connect to the Mentech Innovation data collection team. You get plenty of opportunities for personal and professional development.

Your main activities include
– Building of a data science toolkit;
– Development and validation of deep-learning and pattern recognition models to advance the HUME;
– Benchmarking and documentation of results;

You preferably have the following profile
– Background (MSc or PhD) in data science and artificial intelligence / neural networks;
– Programming experience, Python, C#, Java, C, SPSS and/or MySQL;
– An entrepreneurial mentality, with good communication, collaborative and leadership skills;
– Eagerness to work in a multidisciplinary team of engineers and psychologists in a vibrant start-up.

What we offer
At Mentech Innovation you contribute to the happiness and quality of life of vulnerable people. We offer a job with growth and development opportunities. In addition, we offer an attractive salary and excellent secondary employment conditions.

Company Information
Mentech Innovation BV, a techno-starter, develops biofeedback-based technology platforms, pattern recognition software and systems for emotion recognition and regulation. Mentech Innovation has developed the HUME, a system for emotion recognition, and focuses on a first market introduction in care homes for people with intellectual disabilities or dementia. Mentech’s products will contribute to better care, lower costs of care, and more quality of life and happiness of these vulnerable people.

Healthcare technologist (Dutch)

Mensen met een verstandelijke beperking zijn vaak onvoldoende in staat hun emoties, pijn of spanning te uiten en ervaren daardoor onnodig stress. Hierdoor wordt hun gedrag in veel gevallen niet begrepen en kunnen zorgverleners niet altijd de benodigde aandacht en betekenisvolle zorg bieden. Als gezondheidszorgtechnoloog draag je bij aan het geluk en kwaliteit van leven van deze kwetsbare mensen door ze middels de HUME weer een stem en zelfregie te geven. De HUME is een digitaal systeem dat emoties zoals stress, verdriet, blijdschap en pijn met behulp van sensorinformatie, patroonherkenning en zelflerende modellen kan duiden. Vanuit passie voor de doelgroep en kennis van de technologie valideer en implementeer je de HUME in zorgorganisaties. Je geeft als zorgprofessional sturing aan het opzetten, uitvoeren en analyseren van de validatie/implementatie studies, het vertalen van de gebruikerswensen in producteigenschappen en levert input voor het verder ontwikkelen van de HUME.

Je werkt als gezondheidszorgtechnoloog in een hightech startup, gevestigd in het bruisende hart van Strijp-S, Eindhoven, en zal regelmatig in woonhuizen van deelnemende partnerorganisaties veldwerk verrichten. Je krijgt zowel vanuit de warme zorg als vanuit de technologie volop kansen voor persoonlijke en professionele ontwikkeling.

Je voornaamste werkzaamheden bestaan uit:

  • Het opstellen/definiëren van casestudiespecificaties van de
    deelnemende partners;
  • Het zelfstandig opzetten, uitwerken en analyseren van case studies
    op zorglocaties;
  • Tijdens de casestudies zorg dragen voor rapportage/communicatie en
    documentatie;
  • Het bijdragen aan het verder ontwikkelen van de HUME, o.a. middels
    het opzetten van een emotiedatabase;
  • Het aansturen en begeleiden van een casestudie team.

Voor deze uitdagende functie zijn wij op zoek naar een kandidaat die:

  • Empathisch en mensgericht is;
  • Enthousiast, initiatiefrijk, zelforganiserend en ondernemend is;
  • Een teamplayer en communicatief vaardig is;
  • Tenminste een afgeronde HBO opleiding heeft (bijv. Gezondheidszorgtechnologie, gedragskunde, etc.)
  • Tenminste 1-2 jaar werkervaring heeft binnen de VG zorg of
    ouderenzorg;

WAT BIEDEN WIJ JE

Bij Mentech Innovation werk je mee aan het geluk en kwaliteit van leven van kwetsbare mensen. We bieden je een baan met groei- en ontwikkelmogelijkheden. Daarnaast bieden we een aantrekkelijk salaris en prima secundaire arbeidsvoorwaarden.
