About Seer: Seer combines medical and technological expertise to improve healthcare for everyone. Our at-home video EEG monitoring and diagnostic service - the first of its kind in Australia - has attracted over 80 referring clinicians and 460 patients in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania in the past 18 months.
We are also building a web platform to store and manage biomedical data, providing personalised insights, predictions and alerts to patients in real-time. The platform currently supports our at-home diagnostic services and will soon support clinical trials of devices carried out by partner companies.   As we grow our business, we’re focused on creating a collaborative work environment where everyone is empowered to do their best work and learn new skills and new perspectives. We’re interested in those who are excited to apply technology to the healthcare industry and to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.  We attract really great people and you will have an opportunity to thrive. 
Create your own path in our business and contribute to its overall direction. Seer is a flexible work environment that keeps it light with regular social events, a focus on diversity and inclusion, a professional development budget and of course, the chance to work with some of the best people in the business. 
At Seer, we are committed to creating a diverse team whose members help each other to grow. For this reason, we particularly encourage women and people from minority groups to apply and we will consider these applications very favourably.
