CTO / Software Engineer

Do you want to be a part of a growing start-up, involved in the welfare of horses in the equine industry, where computer science and sports science merge together? Do you want to work in an industry-defining enterprise that will change the face of the subjective equine industry?

 

What We Do

TrojanTrack will provide biomechanical analysis to the trainers of thoroughbred racehorses, analysing their movement pattern for any imbalances or early sign of injury. We will do this using Deep Neural Network technology and high-speed video data, assessing the joint angles, velocities and accelerations of 52 anatomical positions on the horse. This is the future of equine biomechanical analysis, as all competitors are currently using wearables which are time consuming, expensive and not feasible for busy stables.

 

Key Job Responsibilities

  • Review current systems to correct errors within the existing code

  • Collaborate with the founder and tech advisors in developing and adapting MVPs to fit the trainers’ needs.

  • Conduct pilot tests to assess the functionality of new iterations of code.

  • Conceive, design, and bring to market innovative solutions for both front and back-end implementation.

  • Make key decisions involved in scaling the business, revising previous code to enable more efficient processing times for global distribution.

  • Upgrade systems in order to adapt to the scaling of the business, making them fault-tolerant and easy to use.

  • Manage and lead the technical team once further funding has been acquired to build the commercial product
