Seeking a Career
in Ultrasound?

At Vave, we’re a bunch of team players that enjoy learning together and working hard to make better healthcare more accessible, starting with ultrasound.

4.7 Billion People Lack Access to Medical Imaging Globally

Shocked by the gravity of this number? So are we.

Our mission is to change this, delivering life saving technology to more people globally. Based in Silicon Valley, CA, we are a semi-distributed team of passionate engineers, visionaries, clinicians, and more that have come together with the mission of improving healthcare.

Our Mission

Built On A Values-Driven Culture


We see one another as people. It’s the providers we empower, the communities we connect, the colleagues we work with. and especially the patients we serve – it all starts from a place of kindness and care. That’s what we all seek and that’s what connects us all.


We are always looking for ways to do things smarter, not harder. We naturally explore different perspectives in order to recognize patterns and try the seemingly impossible. The problems we are committed to solving attract the best minds and the biggest hearts to invent life’s most impactful solutions.  Simple. Different. Remarkable.


At Vave, we are deeply empathetic and recognize that liberating oneself from an established and complex system of beliefs and behaviors is not easy. So through our words and actions we aim to motivate, cheer and spread hope for all those who seek to grow with us.
