Front End Engineer

  • Full time
  • United Kingdom
  • 14/06/2021

Digital Surgery is a data-driven company implementing cutting-edge AI technology, computer vision, and augmented reality to the operating room (OR) and surgical training. Our goal is to deliver safer surgery around the world. The DS1 is our first OR device, allowing surgeons, OR team members, and trainees to securely access videos of their procedures shortly after surgery. The device uses advanced AI algorithms that enable automatic processing and uploading of videos. Our surgical training platform is the award-winning Touch Surgery application that provides safe and accessible training for surgeons and other health care professionals.

As a Front-End Developer, you would be joining a 5 person Front-End team working across two main products. The first is the Touch Surgery video platform where Surgeons can review their surgical video uploaded from the OR, gain the insights provided by our AI algorithms, annotate the video and share it with colleagues. The second is our annotation platform used to help create and manage the data used to train those algorithms by easily allowing teams to annotate phases, anatomy and instrumentation within surgical videos. We also have a number of other internal-facing projects to help the company deliver its mission.


We are looking for someone who has experience with the following:

  • ES6
  • A modern JS framework
  • Functional Programming
  • Responsive Design

Experience of the following would be “nice to have”:

  • React
  • Redux
  • Webpack
  • Working on a video platform


We’re in a really lucky position to operate as a small team, with all of the benefits of a big company. Following our acquisition by Medtronic in February 2020, our benefits have had an impressive facelift. Our benefits package aims to help support your health, build wealth, grow in your career and share in the success of Digital Surgery and Medtronic. We are in the healthcare business and so in order to look after our people we provide:

  • Pension scheme (we double your personal contribution of up to 6%, by contributing 12%)

  • Annual meal allowance
  • Life insurance (4 x annual salary*)
  • Group Income Protection (67% of insured salary payable until pensionable age)
  • Life benefit policy
  • Maternity - 20 weeks’ full pay + 15% returner’s bonus
  • Paternity - 2 weeks’ full pay
  • Employee Assistance Programme (support line for counselling, legal or financial advice)
  • This is not to mention all the other perks for working with us such as our employee recognition programs, a cash bonus for referring a friend, and a whole host of other wellness benefits.

We also encourage flexible working, so you choose when you start and finish. This is just one of our Family Friendly company policies.

So what’s it like working at Digital Surgery?

We care about our employees’ career and development, offering training internally as well as external courses and attending global conferences.
