Job Description

Brainlab has been and keeps innovating significantly in the areas of surgery, radiation therapy, and digitalization of healthcare by developing software and hardware technology to help healthcare providers, physicians and their patients fight cancer and other conditions of the brain and body. 

In recent years, there has been a tremendous increase in the volume and complexity of data acquired throughout the patient diagnosis and treatment process. New emerging technologies such as cloud computing, big data analysis, augmented and mixed reality as well as robotic assistance are gaining significance also in the medical field. 

At Brainlab, our many clinical applications are expected to become more and more anticipative and intelligent by understanding and evaluating all kinds of information surrounding the patient and its clinical journey. Therefore, there is a clear need for a scalable, performant, feature-rich, stable and robust software architecture. 

As we don’t want to reinvent the wheel for each and every application, we constantly evolve a shared base software layer, which we call our “Brainlab Framework”.  

One can easily imagine that such a foundation on the one hand needs to be rock-solid and stable so that applications on top don’t build on sand, and on the other hand very flexible and constantly be evolved to stay up-to-date with newest technologies. 

It clearly needs the best software developers to take it up with this challenging and responsible task, which is why we are currently establishing a dedicated new team of passionate software craftsmen. 

So, if you bring significant experience in software development, a clear opinion of how professional and state-of-the-art software development should look like, plus an urge to move things forward, this might be the challenge that you have been waiting for.

  • provide modern and comprehensive documentation and training material for framework concepts 
  • share your knowledge and provide technical guidance to your colleagues in- and outside of the team 
  • contribute to our success with your creative ideas and your independent and self-responsible way of working 


  • passion for innovative high-tech products and for technological advancement

  • professional experience in software development 
  • degree in Computer Science, information technology or related discipline 
  • 2+ years professional experience in object-oriented software development (preferably C++) 
  • profound understanding of concepts and trends in computer software and technology 
  • ability to quickly grasp new contexts and get familiar with new tools 
  • well-organized and clearly structured, agile working style 
  • open mind-set, finding creative solutions for challenges on a daily basis and willing to collaboratively define and improve the software code base at Brainlab 
  • hands-on mentality
