Senior Android Developer

Child Growth Monitor , Anywhere · · Full-time employment · Mobile (iPhone, Android, other)

Millions of child deaths are caused by malnutrition each year. 200 million children are suffering from malnutrition. Therefore, the United Nations have set the goal of Zero Hunger by 2030. In the fight against malnutrition, detection is the first important step, but it is not easy. Measuring children with traditional methods is still a complex, slow and expensive task, frequently resulting in poor data and wrong assessments of the situation.


Our mission

Every child should be measured for healthy growth and screened for signs of malnutrition to ensure their right to health and zero hunger. Our mission is to provide quick and accurate data on child malnutrition in the most ethical way. Our solution to measure children replaces hard-ware (measuring boards and physical scales) with software.


Our solution

The Child Growth Monitor uses augmented reality enabled smartphones to record 3D scans of children. Artificial Intelligence is used to predict their height, weight and middle upper-arm cir-cumference.
