About us

Brainomix is an award-winning University of Oxford medical imaging start-up, developing cutting edge technology to improve the treatment of stroke patients. We are building a world-class software product to be sold in multiple international markets, and to accomplish this, we believe in creating a first-class working environment for the whole team.

Systems Engineer

The role

We are looking for an experienced Systems Engineer with expertise in managing production servers, installing hardware and software at customer sites, and maintaining IT systems. Our systems are typically deployed in hospitals, and integrate with radiology systems such as CT scanners and PACS, so experience working in this kind of environment is beneficial. You will be joining a small company, reporting directly to the CTO, so you will be involved with key technology decisions and will interact with all areas of the business. The initial focus of this role will be installing and supporting the e-ASPECTS stroke imaging software developed by Brainomix, both on-site and in the cloud, although some in-house IT support duties will also be required from time to time.

This role is a full-time, permanent position, based in Oxford, starting in September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. The role will occasionally involve travelling to customer premises in the UK and abroad. Applicants should have permission to work in the UK.

Your skills

You will have an in-depth understanding of Linux server setup, administration, and tuning (we use Ubuntu). You must also have an interest in customer support, and be willing to perform installation and maintenance tasks both at our Oxford offices and at customer premises. Other required skills include:

  • Server hardware selection, configuration, and installation
  • IP network design and administration
  • Knowledge of best practices for information security
  • Familiarity with VPN and remote access solutions
  • Deployment and management of virtualised systems and infrastructure (e.g. AWS, VMWare)
  • Scripting (particularly Bash and Python)
  • 1st- and/or 2nd-line support experience
  • Basic understanding of database configuration and management (we use PostgreSQL)
  • An ability to discuss technology requirements and solutions with the software development team

It would also be beneficial if you have experience with hospital IT systems:

  • Knowledge of the DICOM protocol and configuration of DICOM devices
  • Understanding of hospital imaging systems, e.g. PACS, RIS and CT scanners
  • Experience with medical software installation and support, especially in a hospital IT environment

You will be given a significant share of responsibility for the administration and support of Brainomix products, and an ability to work independently is essential. Since this role will involve frequent contact with customers, a positive attitude and excellent communication skills are important.
