We Do Work That Matters
It is our mission at Zühlke to focus on driving real change through digital innovation, make a positive impact, and give our people's work a purpose.
Our work culture is not only based on the diverse expertise of our colleagues, but also on the diversity of perspectives in different teams that work together globally and in a spirit of trust to achieve the best results. We are convinced that these innovations and our technological progress can positively change not only the economy, but also our entire society. Together with our customers, we work on more sustainable and efficient solutions for the future every day.

A real-time monitoring system for oxygen cylinder valves
With a lean and agile approach, Zühlke helped the market leading gas supplier Linde Healthcare deliver a real-time monitoring system for their LIV-IQ digital cylinder valve, enabling hospitals to track and optimise their gas cylinder usage.
We developed prototype ideas, which were then transformed into a core pilot system in order to generate feedback early in the process. Once the technical feasibility and business value was confirmed, the pilot was expanded into a full production system.
Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Investor App
Zuhlke has developed the first stage of a new Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Investor App to help investors fund the installation of electric vehicle chargers across the country. Its goal is to provide investors and other stakeholders with Energy, Traffic, and Geographic data that is difficult to acquire and interpret, but which is essential to ensure that charging stations are installed in the best locations.
A digital app for assisted living homes
With a user-friendly, intuitive digital app we placed effective behavioural support in the hands of front-line care workers to enrich the lives of both care service users and their carers.
Zühlke experts were brought in by Special Needs Care to rapidly create an innovative digital platform enhancing independence and opportunity among people with intellectual disabilities by increasing access to, and control over, a range of everyday activities at home and in the community.
NHS Covid-19 App
The NHS Covid-19 app has prevented 600,000 cases of infection in England and Wales. A global team of 70 Zühlke employees built both the iOS and Android app, the highly scalable back-end services, and the underlying AWS Cloud platform infrastructure. The team also helped scientists develop a new, more accurate algorithm to detect exposure to infection.
Zühlke's decades of experience in fast, agile development enabled our team to take the NHS Covid-19 app from conception to launch-readiness in just twelve weeks. Since then, the app has continued to evolve as we keep developing and operating it.
The purpose of our work on the app is to break the chain of transmission of the Covid-19 virus, stop the spread and protect users and their communities. Since its launch in September 2020, the app has been downloaded over 24 million times, representing 60% of the eligible population. It was one of the first apps built on the Google/Apple Exposure Notification (GAEN) framework, and the first to take advantage of the significant improvements seen in the latest versions of these APIs. The GAEN framework is designed to protect users from the spread of the virus while maintaining their privacy and anonymity.
Zühlke brought a unique combination of experience to the project: the ability to develop quickly, the experience from developing large mobile applications with architectures that allow parallel development of multiple functions and scale quickly to millions of users, and a background of building medically-compliant software.
