Tell us about your company. When were you founded? What do you do? Where are you located?
Precision OS is a simulation software platform that was founded in 2017 in Vancouver.
What exactly do you do?
We provide education, so we provide immersive medical education to trainees, health care providers and large medical device companies.
Are you located only in Vancouver or elsewhere as well?
We have both Canadian, which is Vancouver, and a European footprint right now.
What is the big problem your company is tackling?
There are several. Hands-on training is not available to the majority of the world in a timely way to improve confidence, and subsequently improve patient care. That is a problem we are solving with our software. To provide hands on training on a global scale.
What are you most proud of in terms of company milestones?
I’d say a big one for me is getting our software validated, proving that it works. That was a big milestone. For us, for me personally.
How would you describe your company culture?
Our company culture is based on three principles – trust, respect, and honesty. We try to capitalize on that throughout the organization. Subsequently we really champion the idea of learning from our mistakes and allowing people to be creative within the organization.
What are three words that you would use to describe your company?
I’d say passionate about education.
What is it like to work at your company?
It’s constant problem solving. It’s all brand new so no one can claim to be an expert in what we’re doing and. We are just constantly trying to figure out new ways to accomplish the goal and that’s – for the right kind of person – super exciting, and makes everyday fun and dynamic.
Why is it a great place to work?
We are a bunch of like-minded people who are passionate about doing something with their talent. A lot of people came from the entertainment industry, video games – we are all at a place where we want to use our skills to do something to help people, instead of just entertainment.
