Meet the Team — Philipp Brunnbauer

This time, we get to meet one of our founders, Philipp Brunnbauer. Let’s learn a bit more about this self-confessed coffee lover…

Where are you from?

Can you tell us how you ended up founding MedEngine?
The journey started in a hot, messy and poorly air conditioned laboratory at Imperial College where we worked on several related Master Projects. From there, we quickly realised the amazing potential of the TremorTab (Christian’s Master Thesis and the precursor of our product Flytta), which then organically grew into what is now, MedEngine.

What would you say you are most proud of?
I would say building the team. We have an amazing, highly motivated bunch of people that share the vision of pushing healthcare to the next level and who work very well together to provide the best possible care to patients and their families.

Could you describe yourself in 3 words…

  1. Coffeephile
  2. Optimistic
  3. Nocturnal

For you, what would you say is the best part about working at MedEngine?
I love waking up in the morning with the excitement of having a purpose and working to help others lead a better life. Other than that, the startup culture, the socials, the jokes coupled with challenging work and solving problems makes for an amazing workplace.

Name 3 things that you couldn’t go without…
Espresso, Americano and Cappuccino.

What about your favourite book?
Hmm… can I give you 2?

  1. A Short History of Nearly Everything — Bill Bryson.
  2. Onder het mes: De Beroemdste Patiënten en Operaties uit de Geschiedenis van de Chriurgie — Arnold van de Laar.

What skill would you like to develop in the future?
My biggest dream is to become a part of a new wave of Medical Doctors who don’t just use medical devices, but also play an active role in their development.

Feeling social? — Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
