Deep Tech Startup seeks Talented RF/Microwave Engineer

Posted 30/07/19

Pinfold Technologies has a completely novel approach to ultrasound sensing. We're commercialising technology developed at UCL to create devices which are low cost (made from off-the-shelf ICs) but competitive with high-end ultrasound equipment. Our patent-pending technology also solves a number of open problems in the field, such as being scalable to high channel counts (enabling, for instance, 2D matrix arrays which produce 3D images) and having a wide sensitivity bandwidth, crucial for monitoring next-gen ultrasound-based therapies.

We're looking for someone ideally London-based and experienced in RF/microwave circuit design. No ultrasonics experience is necessary, but it's nice to have. Particularly interested in hearing from software-defined radio hobbyists.

We are in the process of raising an angel round, and your involvement at this stage will have a big part in shaping the company.

If you think this sounds interesting, please get in touch!

HTML5/JS simple web app

Posted 1/SEP/2015


I am producing a video series for the Guardian where we want to build an app that our presenter can use in her native L.A.

To illustrate the positivities of Open Data we would like to build her an app that uses her geolocation, crime rates and public transport tables to provide the safest route home for her.

We will need to build this app in the next 3-5 days and I am hoping to work with the Times in LA to use info they have collected to make this map.

The app can be quite scaled down and the interface basically non-existent- this is a beta tool that shows whats possible with open data.

If interested please get in contact ASAP.

Thank you! budge.caroline [AT]
