The team that gets people moving

We're a team driven by movement and from day one, we've been a hybrid company. We think giving people options fosters growth and more vibrant collaboration.

What's it like working at Akina?

Here's what our team has to say.

  • I am driven by the idea that individuals undergoing physiotherapy can be supported beyond the confines of the clinic. I feel like I can really make a difference when creating training programs which make Akina users experts in autonomously managing their own health.

    Annika Dunkel

    Therapeutic Content Manager

  • Before coming to Akina I expected that a start-up would be a chaotic experience, but as soon as I arrived I noticed how everything is extremely well organized. My workmates and mentors provided me with their expertise in the field, which helped me grow as a professional, and I am really happy that my work can make people recover faster and better.

    Lluis Pastor Perez

    Junior Software Engineer

  • At Akina, I've found an environment that not only pushes me to stay on top of the ever-evolving quality and regulatory landscape but also offers the support and resources needed to do so effectively. Every day presents unique challenges, making this role both demanding and incredibly rewarding.

    Stay flexible

    We're taking PT beyond the practice, and work beyond the office – but we believe there's nothing like connecting in-person. Our team has the option to work remotely or from one of our collaboration spaces in Zurich. So everyone can choose what works for them.

    By guiding every move, Akina paves the path to better and beyond. With AI motion support and instant feedback, we make moving more enjoyable and effective for patients exercising at home. And we give physiotherapists a way to stay in sync with patients and get ahead of the connected care curve.
