Our Stories

Dipti Ganeriwala

Product Design Lead

Design is about making people’s lives better and that is what got me interested in the field. I grew up in Calcutta, India where I ran my own design studio and then attained a Masters in Interaction Design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI). After this I decided to call Berlin my new home, as it offered a rich tapestry of culture and experiences. What also drew me in was the opportunity to witness firsthand a dynamic startup environment.

As a product designer at Vara, I work at the intersection of design, technology and science, applying human-centred design methodologies to machine-learning powered medical platforms. Here I am privy to an environment that is collaborative, open and authentic, with a passionate group of people and the common goal of pushing the boundaries of innovation in healthcare.

Daniel Barreto

Lead Fullstack Developer

I was lucky enough to discover early in life a career path that I was passionate about. I got into computers and building websites back in 2001, then years later I decided to pursue a career in Computer Science and got my B.Sc from Universidad Simón Bolívar. After graduating, I worked as a consultant for many different startups around the world, and I developed a better understanding of what needs to be done to make them succeed.

In 2016 I decided to move to Berlin, and soon after I started looking for new work opportunities. I found in Vara everything I wanted out of my next challenge: helping solve difficult problems, building a product that positively affects everyday life, and working with smart highly skilled people. Here at Vara my task is to build and deliver the mammography solution. My job is all about connecting the pieces between screening units, our machine-learning platform, and radiologists.

The experience of working in this company has been a pleasure, and I'm proud to be able to participate in a project that aims to improve the quality of lives of thousands, if not millions, of people.
