At Hearing Diagnostics, we have built the next generation of hearing testing technology that has the potential to transform how patients first gain access to care worldwide, enabling earlier diagnoses for the 7 million people who develop hearing loss each year.
We are looking to grow our team as we embark on the next phase of our company: launching and commercialising our revolutionary hearing test technology Audimetroid.
Our core technology, Audimetroid, is a purpose-built hearing test technology that can be administered by an untrained professional in a non-hospital setting. Plus, Audimetroid all but eliminates the risk of missed or misdiagnosis during hearing testing due to its unique spatial testing paradigm and state-of-the-art analytical framework.
We believe that Audimetroid has the potential to be a game-changer that will enable community-based healthcare providers globally to easily, cost-effectively help patients gain access to critical and reliable preventative care. All without a hospital or advanced training in audiology.
About the role
We are seeking an experienced, organised, pro-active and practically-inclined individual for the role of Executive Assistant. Your role is to support the leadership team (CEO and CTO) in daily admin and organisational tasks, as well as taking on significant responsibilities within the company, reporting directly to the CEO.
The role is within a growing start-up, which is at the cusp of launching and commercialising their first product, the Audimetroid hearing test. The role holds significant responsibility and is very varied in its work load and tasks. This role is ideal for you, if you actively seek to work in an agile environment and a small team that requires you to responsibly and pro-actively deal with problems as they arise.
It is also critical that you have a valid driving licence and have access to a car as you will be responsible for managing the company’s stock, which will require travel and transport of stock (e.g., small electronics, electronic hardware, packaging material, headphones). You should be based in the Central Belt Area in Scotland (anywhere between Glasgow, Edinburgh, Scottish Borders, Fife).
Hearing Diagnostics is a growing start-up with an enthusiastic and agile team of 8. The company is ramping up its efforts towards launching its first product to market and is transitioning from its R&D focus towards its commercialisation focus in the UK and internationally. The Hearing Diagnostics’ team works 100% remote and we can offer flexible working hours.
While we’re all working remotely, it’s important for us to foster team spirit and maintain a welcoming company culture. The entire team meets in person once every month in Edinburgh to discuss the status quo and we always end the day with a dinner at an employee-chosen location. In-between the face-to-face meetings, we have regular virtual meetings between team members and the group.

About Hearing Loss
Hearing loss can have an immensely negative impact on an individual’s life, putting those who are affected at risk of becoming socially isolated, suffering from depression and anxiety, and developing dementia prematurely.
Providing access to care (hearing aids, assistive therapies and interventions) can prevent these comorbidities, but it needs to be provided early. Screening tests act as the gatekeeper for providing this care, but existing tests are notoriously unreliable, leaving as many as 2 out of 10 patients with the wrong diagnosis.
We have developed the Audimetroid hearing test technology to address this problem and our vision is to now make hearing testing commonplace and accessible, ensuring that everyone in need receives care at the earliest possible opportunity.
