About us

Hi, we’re UVX—a Vancouver company recognized as Canada’s most impactful healthcare startup. We’re on a mission to accelerate global access to superior environmental and personal hygiene.

Our first product is a smart ceiling device that kills pathogens within seconds, on both air and surfaces, even when humans are present. We do this using a newly discovered “sweet spot” in the UV light spectrum, that unlike conventional UV light, is safe for humans but deadly for pathogens. For the first time ever, facilities can now disinfect continuously throughout the day without disrupting operations (as opposed to on a fixed cleaning schedule of say 8am, 3pm, and 9pm).

We’re closely affiliated with UBC’s Faculty of Medicine (Division of Infectious Diseases) and backed by some of Canada’s most prominent healthcare investors like HaloHealth and former AstraZeneca C-Suite. 

UVX's work was recently spotlighted on CBC News among other notable media outlets as we embark on the world's largest clinical trial of its kind; in collaboration with Research Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Health Authority. We're at an inflection point in our trajectory and looking for talented people like you to fuel our growth.

About you

If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you!

The role

Our proprietary technology is software-enabled-hardware. One of our biggest differentiators is our embedded software; making your role as an embedded software engineer critical to our success. Our tech stack consists of C running on Espressif RISC-V hardware, communicating with AWS via MQTT.

You won't simply be a passive observer when it comes to steering our product towards its final vision. Instead, you'll be an active participant. More specifically, your role will include:

You meet these requirements

Bonus if you have these too

Our offer to you

Hesitant to apply?

Research has shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every qualification in the job posting. At UVX, we are committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment so we strongly encourage you to apply even if you don't believe you meet every single criteria.

This list represents what we're ideally looking for, but everyone has unique strengths and weaknesses. We hire for strength and potential, not lack of weakness.

If you’re interested, so are we! We look forward to hearing from you.
