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.

NHS Covid-19 Test & Trace 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. 

Can we save lives with zeros and ones?

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.

A Real-time Monitoring System for Oxygen Cylinder Valves

We helped Linde Healthcare create a real-time tracking system for their digital cylinder valves for medical gases. Through the Internet of Things, hospitals can now automatically optimise their gas cylinder usage and easily manage current and future supplies.

Can we optimize oxygen supplies with IoT?

Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Investor App

We developed a new App where we‘re using a data-driven approach to identify the best locations for e-charging stations and provide that information to investors. This will play a vital role in building a charging station infrastructure that supports the rapid deployment of electric vehicles by the time petrol cars are banned in the UK in 2030.

Can we protect the climate with data?

A Digital App for Assisted Living Homes

We‘ve aided ‘Special Needs Care’ workers by digitising and simplifying the way they collect data of residents with intellectual disabilities. As a result, carers now have more time for people and spend less time recording information and transcribing notes.

Can we support assisted aid with a digital app?
