About Us
Did you know that 1 in 4 mobile devices are contaminated with deadly bacteria? These bacteria can spread to those with weakened immune systems – like patients in the neonatal intensive care unit – with potentially deadly consequences. Did you know that hospital-acquired infections cause illness in hundreds of thousands of patients each year, costing the healthcare system billions?
Our mission is simple: eliminate bacteria on mobile devices through the use of effective and easy-to-use UV products. We do this by designing technologies that people will actually use, backed by science reflective of real-world conditions. We harness the power of UV light to kill the most dangerous pathogens without damaging expensive touch screens.
Our flagship product, the CleanSlate UV sanitizer, is used in healthcare to sanitize mobile devices – whether that is phones, tablets, pagers, watches, badges, etc. Our goal is to prevent the spread of infections and improve patient outcomes.
We are looking for team members who want to help solve a major challenge and be part of the next big story in infection prevention and control. We are a customer-centric team that values quality work, transparency, adaptability and rewarding performance. If this sounds like a fit, read on.
