Our Story.

Leitwert is a Zurich-based start-up founded in 2014 during a robotics project at ETH Zurich’s Autonomous Systems Lab. Over time, Leitwert has been specializing in the development of firmware for wearable devices. Due to our involvement in related projects, we learned of the huge potential these devices have to improve healthcare and clinical research. On the other hand, we recognized the lack of applications and infrastructure, which would be required for the integration of such devices into care and research processes.

As a consequence, we now fully focus on seamless device-to-cloud connectivity – from device firmware over gateways to an open device- and data management platform. Our tech stack closes the gap between wearable sensors and the data applications that will revolutionize healthcare. We collaborate with leading Swiss wearable manufacturers and research institutions to make sure our solutions fit the requirements of manufacturers and users of wearable devices all along the device lifecycle.

Our Values.

Our values guide our priorities, work approach and company culture. We really enjoy collaborating on difficult problems to solve the challenges of our clients and to improve our own capabilities.

Sounds like you? Then you will most likely have a blast working with us. Get in touch!

We are driven by the desire to realize technically sophisticated solutions that solve the challenges of our clients.

To find the best possible solution, we need to clearly define the target but also stay curious and incorporate new findings as we progress.

Every member of the team acts proactively, informed and solution oriented. We don’t leave issues to be solved by others and can rely on colleagues to have our back.

Communication is not easy – especially when problems are tough and can be approached in uncountable ways. To make sure that our meetings are inspiring instead of confusing, we always meet prepared, make informed decisions and implement them consistently.

We are keeping pace with rapidly changing technology in that every member of the team never stops learning and makes sure that the whole team profits from new insights.

None of us can – or wants to – do this alone.

Talking around unpleasant topics won’t get us anywhere. We trust in the goodwill of our colleagues and feel comfortable sharing our problems and thoughts.

We put in hard work and dedication and know the worth of our creations, know-how and company culture.

We believe in pushing our limits – but overstepping them won’t help anyone.
