Abbott iOS Software Engineer (NAVICA) in Abbott Park, Illinois

Abbott is a global healthcare leader that helps people live more fully at all stages of life. Our portfolio of life-changing technologies spans the spectrum of healthcare, with leading businesses and products in diagnostics, medical devices, nutritionals and branded generic medicines. Our 107,000 colleagues serve people in more than 160 countries

At Abbott, you can work on market-leading tech and help in the fight against COVID-19.

NAVICA™ is a new mobile suite of applications that Abbott designed to pair with our BinaxNOW™ rapid antigen test for COVID-19. Test results can be stored, accessed and displayed on your NAVICA app that works on iPhone and Android devices. If you test negative, the app will display a temporary encrypted digital pass with a QR code, similar to an airline boarding pass. Sharing your mobile pass, with NAVICA-enabled organizations such as employers and schools, verifies authenticity of your COVID-19 test results facilitating entry into places where people gather. If you test positive, you'll receive a message in the app to quarantine and talk to your doctor.

This combination of NAVICA with the BinaxNOW rapid antigen test for COVID-19 is life-changing technology that will address the pandemic on critical fronts – speed, simplicity, affordability, access and reliability.
