Making Software Safe and Reliable
Belief in a Better Way
Convinced there was a better way, Erez founded Ketryx in 2021, assembling a team of world-class developers, quality and regulatory professionals as well as experts in AI and Cloud. Former FDA guru, Paul Jones, who wrote much of the central medical device standard ISO 62304, was so convinced Ketryx could make a significant impact on healthcare, he became an early recruit to the executive team.
Today, Ketryx is working with some of the largest MedTech companies in the industry with headquarters in the Boston area and offices in the U.S. and Europe.
Erez worked at Amgen, the world’s largest biotechnology company, as the head of AI/ML for their medical device division. Prior to Amgen he served as the special assistant to the CEO of Wolfram Research and as a visiting researcher at Princeton Plasma Physics Labs. Erez holds a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a Master of Business Administration from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and served as a platoon sergeant in the Israel Defense Forces.
Jan led cloud development for Wolfram Research, where he and Erez worked together to launch developer tools used by millions of users each day (Wolfram|Alpha, Mathematica). He has over 15 years of experience as a software developer and infrastructure architect and for the last decade has been leading the development of the Wolfram Cloud, a developer-first infrastructure cloud technology stack. Prior to Wolfram, Jan was a visiting researcher at the Stanford Biomedical Informatics lab. He holds a Master of Science degree in Mathematical Computer Science from Graz University of Technology.
John has held roles in research, engineering, IT, and operations in the software industry for over 25 years. Most recently, he was both the VP of Engineering and Chief Information Officer for operations and compliance at Wolfram Research, primarily focused on Wolfram Alpha, the world's most used and knowledgeable AI project. He directed global platform operations and R&D efforts, as well as 3rd party integration with customers like Apple, Amazon, and CVS-Health. His computer science and engineering experiences include large scale parallelized simulation models, design of high performance computing systems, directing IT architecture at a state university, and working for quality-focused research organizations such as Argonne National Lab and NASA. He holds a Master of Science degree in Computer Technology from Eastern Illinois University.
Paul is a world-renowned software safety expert who joined Ketryx following close to 25 years at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). He helped create the FDA’s approach to safety-critical software and medical devices and founded the FDA’s software engineering lab. While holding committee positions with groups that handled medical software safety standards like ISO 13485, ISO/IEC 62304, and ISO 14971, he reviewed over 300 devices, carried out numerous inspections, and provided training to FDA staff on software quality, risk management, and software engineering. Prior to the FDA, he worked 20 years as a systems/software engineer for companies like Ford Motor, Electronic Data Systems, Honeywell, and SAIC. He holds a Master of Science degree in Computer Engineering from Loyola University, Maryland.
Brian has been at the forefront of digital marketing for the past 20 years, starting with Google in 2003. He was the original marketing leader at Tile, responsible for the Bluetooth tracker’s meteoric rise and category dominance. Since that time, he has led marketing teams across several B2B and B2C companies. Most recently, he built a boutique consulting practice specializing in medical device manufacturers like iRhythm and Heartflow where he eventually met Erez and the Ketryx team. Brian holds an MBA and MS from the University of Michigan and a BA/BS from Northwestern University.
