Our Mission

Virgo is the digital layer for endoscopy. Since launching in 2018, we have amassed the world's largest dataset of endoscopy videos. Now, we are leveraging that proprietary data to build vertical AI solutions for healthcare. Our vision is a world where technology powered by artificial intelligence dramatically improves the quality of and access to healthcare.

Endoscopy — a procedure in which the doctor places a camera inside the patient to visualize — plays a critical role in healthcare. Current endoscopy IT systems lack meaningful clinical data and do not provide actionable insights within today’s care pathways. We are building the data infrastructure, tools, and expertise to make this new world a reality. As part of our ambitious journey, we are seeking a highly skilled Senior AI Researcher with a PhD to spearhead our machine learning initiatives.

Job Description

As a Senior AI Researcher at Virgo, you will be at the forefront of developing cutting-edge foundation models using our extensive proprietary dataset of endoscopy videos. You will lead a talented team of machine learning professionals, guiding them in leveraging AI to make significant strides in our products. Due to the nature of this role, a PhD in Artificial Intelligence is required, with bonus points for specific experience with medical data, video data, and/or computer vision foundation models.

This is an in-office position based in San Diego, California. The salary range for this position is $350k - $400k. Visa sponsorship is unavailable at this time.
