Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is looking to execute on the innovative ideas from their surgeons.  We are looking to hire a very tech savy person to join our team of surgical innovation at Cincinnati children’s hospital starting in July 2020 but possibly sooner. This is a very unusual job in that we are looking for someone who has the overall ability to execute on random innovative ideas from the surgeons. This may be device development, artificial intelligence, AR/VR, Internet of things, sensors, broadcasting innovations, app and software development, etc  We realize that no one person probably knows all of these technologies but we are looking for someone who at least has some foundation in these areas or could easily figure it out themselves or know how to get it done by consulting with others.  The ideal candidate will have a very strong understanding of technology, computers, and/or engineering.  This can be part time or full time and can start either in June of 2020 full time  or immediately on a part time basis.
