"I have learned so much at VirtaMed that I can now help younger colleagues grow."
–Basil Fierz, Senior Software Engineer
Our most important skill is the ability to learn: We are not afraid to ask stupid questions and grow wiser in the process. We believe people will flourish when we give them the opportunity to develop themselves.
about Basil's experiences at VirtaMed.
"I get to work with emerging technologies and do rapid prototyping, which isn't possible in many other companies."
– Carolyn Mattes-O'Brien, Research Engineer
Our products are polished and top-of-the-line, but they are only the tip of the iceberg: We invest a great deal in research and development, so we get to work with the most interesting technologies on a daily basis. We believe we can always be better.

"I was hired for my skills, passion, and team spirit; my native language, birth country, or gender were never a question."
–Erika Beudeker, Senior Hardware Engineer
We come from many different countries speaking a dozen different languages. We have a range of degrees and colorful work histories, and our hobbies vary from vanilla to bizarre. We believe having many voices makes us a better community.
