Failure Analysis Engineer

  • 530 Whitfield St, Guilford, CT 06437, USA
  • Full-time

Company Description

At Butterfly, we are building a device that will make medical imaging accessible to everyone in the world. We have reinvented ultrasound by integrating core components into a single silicon chip. The result is a high performance imager that is more portable and less expensive than any other system in the world. The system's on-board Deep Learning Algorithms, trained by ultrasound experts, will guide clinicians with less expertise. It’s a breakthrough that will save millions of lives.
