VP of Engineering / CTO

Permanent employee, Full-time · Berlin

What we do
The Merantix Venture Studio guides daring talents to build category-leading Artificial Intelligence ventures – from ideation over incubation to scaling! We have crafted leading ventures across all industries, from BioTech, HealthTech, Business Intelligence, Sustainability, and more. Our team consists of over 120+ entrepreneurs, scientists, and engineers from a diverse set of backgrounds and the world’s leading companies and universities, and we are backed by global investors such as Softbank, Trusted Insight, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Central to our purpose is the belief that to transfer groundbreaking research to stand-out ventures we need to work collaboratively. Therefore, we have not only cultivated a global network of partners but also built a physical home for the AI community in Germany with our AI Campus Berlin where we work and exchange with other bold minds.

Fertility rates in both men and women are significantly decreasing across developed countries. Today, approx. 1 out of 6 couples face infertility issues. Not only are we deciding to become parents later and later, it's also lifestyle and environmental factors negatively impacting our reproductive abilities. At the same time, success rates of assisted reproductive techniques (e.g. IVF) have stayed frustratingly low over the past 20 years.
Addressing this issue, we are building a venture that introduces AI-based medical decision support tools alongside a holistic health approach to the fertility treatment process. Ultimately, we will be able to improve the success rates of applied techniques and enable the creation of a new generation of fertility clinics.

We are on a mission to redefine how reproductive care is delivered to patients. By combining AI-enabled technology with a human-touch, we elevate the patient experience, establish a new standard in quality of care, and create accessibility.
