■About Medmain

Medmain is a medical technology startup founded in January 2018 operating in telepathology and AI-driven pathological image diagnosis.

Our team consists of specialists from medical, deep learning and web development fields. As well as those based in Japan, we have staff and advisors working remotely from all over the world. Our main product, PidPort, provides quick and accurate pathological image diagnoses using deep learning. It is currently under development and soon to be launched. So far, we have raised several hundred million yen from venture capitals in and out of Japan. Through our cutting-edge technology, we strive to provide higher quality pathology globally, ultimately improving patients' lives.


[Job Summary]
The AI Engineer is expected to be familiar with current machine learning technologies and APIs, 
and have experience with the design and implementation of AI applications for production.
We are currently building up the development team to prepare for the product launch and recruiting 
the first core members. The team mainly consists of international group of staff in their 20's and 30's

■ Why PidPort?

Globally, there is a severe shortage of pathologists; doctors who specialize in visually analyzing samples from the tissues of a patient under a microscope to diagnose diseases and cancers. The turnaround time to obtain diagnostic results can take weeks, which causes tremendous mental stress to the patients and allows time for illnesses to worsen. With our AI-driven product, PidPort, pathologists can now obtain a pathologic diagnosis in approximately 30 seconds with a 98% diagnostic accuracy.

Currently, we are expanding our organization and operations to prepare for the official launch of our product. In the future, we envision PidPort to become the leader in the pathology space for both developed and developing countries.
