So, who are we?
The hearX Group offers the world’s first clinical smartphone hearing testing solutions with the aim to provide healthy hearing for everyone, everywhere. This has been done through developing smartphone technologies which enables a layperson to conduct hearing and vision tests remotely - only needing access to the screening device and mobile data. hearX Group has gone to market with several products since the launch of its flagship product hearScreen , an innovative mobile health application for clinically-valid, time-efficient, low-cost screening using pure tone audiometry. Following the tremendous success of the launch of hearScreen several other products were developed and launched soon after such as hearZA (Downloadable via the app stores), mHealth Studio, hearTest, hearDigits in addition to our partnered product in vision, PeekVision.
Why a mobile hearing solution on a smartphone?
It has been proven that early detection followed by appropriate health care ensures optimal quality of life outcomes.
Smartphone health surveillance and monitoring has gained significant traction with an estimated 1.7 billion downloads expected by the end of 2017 and global revenues reaching $21.5 billion in 2018 (Economist, 2016). By employing a smartphone platform, hearX group provides an opportunity for early detection by end-users with the potential to inform and refer patients to their closest healthcare provider using SMS or e-mail add-on services.
Our mHealth solutions are cheaper and faster than traditional methods and most importantly are mobile, allowing us to reach previously inaccessible areas. We believe that this can help us change the face of preventative care across the continent.

Our Interview Process
If you have great taste and want to join our (awesome) team, send us your info and we’ll go through a super quick initial screening process. Should we like what we see, we’ll schedule an initial, short 15 minute telephonic interview between you and our CEO, Nic. This is a rather informal chat to suss out your personality and experience while we give you an opportunity to ask about what we do.
If both parties are happy to move forward, we’ll schedule an on-site, in person technical interview. During this 60 minute interview, you’ll spend another 30 minutes with Nic (our CEO), followed by a more technical discussion with our team leads.
Following a successful session, we’ll ask you to complete an off-site practical test that you can complete in your own time. A team lead give the green light if you’re as good as you say and then we’ll schedule the final step, which is an interview with our founder and scientific guru, Prof De Wet.
Once a decision has been made, you’ll be informed, following which we’ll do all the boring legal things like an official employment offer and agreeing on an employment contract and getting it signed. Then, it’s welcome to the team and high fives all around.
