Software Architect

Breastfeeding rates are in a state of crisis globally, right at a time when the benefits of breastmilk become more evident with each new research paper published. We at Coroflo are looking to tackle this disconnect through technology: our award-winning breastfeeding monitor, the Coro, is the first of its kind and the only solution to measure milk transfer accurately!

The software components of this technology provide a multitude of new possibilities and challenges, from visualisations on the app, through to data analysis on the back-end. We are looking for the right candidate to define a vision for how the pieces of the puzzle fit together and work for the end user, while being able to build and manage the sub-components at every level.

We will strive to provide a diverse working environment where creativity and inclusion trumps dogma and hierarchy; if you would like to be part of this movement we look forward to talking to you!
