                                              COMPANY MISSION


As a company, we believe in digital health for everyone everywhere. We have created a new category of therapeutic product – the digital health feedback system – to allow people of all ages and cultures to power their own health, taking better care of themselves and each other.

We see two trends: First, there are more people with mobile phones than there are with access to clean, running water. Second, chronic, often lifestyle-related diseases like diabetes are the world’s biggest healthcare problem, and our health systems can’t cope because they are optimized to treat the acute conditions prevalent decades ago.

Our vision is to integrate medicines that treat chronic conditions with mobile technology – via our ingestible sensor – to make healthcare more accessible, manageable and innovative. We believe that by providing the right technology to individuals who deliver and receive healthcare, we can build a more effective healthcare system with new care paradigms focused on daily care and new information-based business models.

Our manifesto:

  • We enable families to develop and sustain healthy habits
  • We help clinicians provide the best care possible
  • We are committed to helping everyone – rich, poor, old, young, near and far
  • We support communities committed to staying healthy
  • We deliver products that delight the customers we serve

How The Platform Works

The ingestible sensor is technology you swallow. It’s made entirely of ingredients found in food and activated upon ingestion. You take it alongside your medications, capturing the exact time of ingestion.
Your body powers the ingestible sensor. With no battery and no antenna, your stomach fluids complete the power source and your body transmits the unique number generated by the sensor.
The patch, body-worn and disposable, captures and relays your body’s physiologic responses and behaviors. It receives information from the ingestible sensor, detects heart rate, activity, and rest, and sends information to your mobile device.
Using a Bluetooth-enabled device – like the one you already carry in your pocket or purse – you can access secure applications that display your data in context and support care in a variety of different ways.

We provide our employees with a great benefits package, which includes: medical/dental/vision insurance, 401K, paid time off (PTO)—including your birthday off, employee stock options, a bright & awesomely designed physical work space, a complimentary wearable device (i.e. Fitbit), fitness centers, and of course free food :-)

    I have been working at Proteus Digital Health as an intern

    Pros

    Proteus is a fast-growing company in a fast-paced industry with an amazing work culture.I haven't worked at a company before where people have been so friendly and welcoming, on top of that incredibly smart.
    I have the impression that a lot is being done to keep employees motivated and everyone is very hard-working and committed to their work. It's an inspirational place to come to work to every day.

    A designated internship program exists, in which activities had been planned on a regular basis and the People Team made sure interns are getting to know each other from day one. The whole program was well-rounded from start to finish. Interns came from all over the US and from different countries and connecting with each other was made very easy.
    I feel very appreciated as an intern at Proteus and am granted a lot of independence. I have weekly meetings with my manager during which I can discuss anything that's on my mind.
    Everyone is very supportive and helpful, also outside of work. For instance, I don't have a car and people offer to give me a ride. Its a very friendly place to work.

    Meetings with company executives had been scheduled and interns were able to ask questions and get advice from for example the CEO.
    All interns were given a schedule for their time at Proteus with all event dates and interns were also invited to the all company summer party.

    Cons

    Since the company is growing really fast, there are still a few changes that are being implemented. For instance, I would appreciate the organization of a company shuttle from different locations but I've been told that this is being planned for.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was through email and we set up a time relatively quickly. There was an initial phone interview. Which then was an onsite, which was with several of the people I would working with. There were no tests for this position and were mostly all more behavioral questions than technical ones.
