Project Management

At Akina, we develop medical software to empower patients during independent physiotherapy at home. Through our software, patient self-care at home is seamlessly integrated with in-person therapy at leading clinics and practices. With an AI-driven motion coach and unique entertainment integration, Akina addresses the lack of clinical feedback and motivation that causes 4 out of 5 patients to fail during self-care at home today.

As a quality and regulatory affairs manager at Akina, you will coordinate and lead the execution of the conformity assessment of our novel software-as-a-medical device under MDR in Europe and, in the future, with the FDA in the US. Your work will be in close collaboration with our engineering team, company management and leading external consultants.

  • Manage the communication with notified bodies and external consultancies
  • Provide context to our clinical team as a regulatory subject matter expert on the development of a clinical evaluation plan and submission strategy for reimbursement as a DiGA in Germany


  • At least 3 years of quality management and/or regulatory affairs experience in the European medical device industry
  • BSc or higher degree in a relevant field (e.g., medicine, life sciences, computer science, physics)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication in English, additional German skills are a strong plus
  • In-depth knowledge of the European MDR and relevant standards (e.g., ISO 14971, IEC 62304, IEC 62366)
  • Experience in communicating with notified bodies. Additional experience in communicating with the FDA is a plus.
  • Experience in working with a quality management system that conformed with ISO 13485. Prior experience in establishing a QMS is a strong plus.

  • Chance to directly shape the development and go-to-market of a novel software-as-a-medical-device as part of a young and ambitious team
  • Attractive compensation package comprised of cash salary and equity participation
  • Beautiful environment with great hiking, MTB trails and lakes nearby, while still located right in Switzerland's largest city, Zurich
