Job opening for Vice President of Software Development at iCardiac Technologies

Over the coming days and months I plan to post a fair bit about iCardiac Technologies, a new company I’m involved with that provides advanced cardiac safety analysis technologies for clinical trials. Think of it as a more sophisticated version of eResearch Technology. The company emerged from the Heart Research Follow-up Program at the University of Rochester and is the winner of the Frost & Sullivan Innovation of the Year Award for Cardiac Safety Analytics.

Right now they are seeking a Vice President of Software Development. Contact Mike Totterman [mikael DOT totterman AT icardiac DOT com] if you are interested.
