Software Engineer

About Billy

Billy is using technology to reimagine the way in which care is provided to older adults. We make products that make it easier for older adults to live independently, in their own homes, for longer. We have a growing team who share a commitment to changing the way that care is provided in Australia, and around the world (

Our first product is a monitoring kit that captures thousands of data points on the day-to-day activities of an aged adult, through a series of sensors that we install around the home. We process this data to provide actionable insights for both family members, and professional carers. Curo passively tracks the taking of medication, eating of meals, getting in and out of bed, as well as general movement and ambient conditions around the home.

We have our product live in 750 homes across Australia and the US, and are working with some of the most innovative aged care providers to get our product in customer’s hands. We are proud to be managing the largest trial of in-home aged care technology anywhere in the world from our office in Melbourne.
