Careers

Ikomed Technologies Inc. is a young and energetic medical device company, based in Vancouver BC, which is engaged in the research and development of several ground-breaking medical device technologies.
We are currently commercializing the AEGIS a smart shutter system used to reduce the amount of X ray radiation which patients and medical staff are exposed to during minimally invasive medical procedures requiring the use of fluoroscopy. The Aegis system combines a high-speed electro-mechanical shutter with machine vision, image processing, and machine learning to reduce radiation by over 60% with no degradation in image quality.
We are also developing a novel medical device that will revolutionize the treatment of emphysema, a type of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Emphysema is a debilitating and progressive lung disease caused by smoking, environmental factors or genetic factors. It is one of the leading causes of death, with millions of patients worldwide, but currently has no cure and treatment is focussed on alleviating symptoms. Our device applies RF (radio frequency) radiation in a non-invasive treatment which could cure the disease and improve the quality of life of millions of patients around the world, increase their productivity, and reduce long-term healthcare costs.
We offer a flexible work environment, a comprehensive salary and benefits program, and the ability to participate in the success of the company through equity.
Our small but growing team combines expertise in science, engineering, medical device development, business, and manufacturing. We believe in hiring talented motivated and self-driven people who are strong team players, giving them the direction and resources they need to succeed, and letting them make the right decisions for Ikomed. We also believe in having fun while working hard.
