Software Engineer

who are WE

We are an interdisciplinary team of software engineers, physicists, techno-anthropologists and more, who share a passion for building products that are part of the next generation of healthcare solutions. We are originally a University spin-out (see www.scaut.dk), and are based in wonderful Copenhagen, Denmark.

Our main product is a software platform that supports the treatment and care for heart patients with implanted pacemakers. The platform delivers decision-support for clinicians at the hospital and engagement in own care for patients. We do this with a web frontend for the hospital clinicians and a smartphone app for patients. Learn more about us in the media section and see how our product helps heart patients.

Our culture is based on these values and beliefs

  • Teamwork and collaboration are paramount

  • Sketch, build and test early and quickly

  • Base insights on thorough fieldwork and academic research

  • Build on user-centered design principles

  • Keep an open, free and flexible work environment

Our work is ambitious. We create solutions that improve the lives of patients and the work practice for health professionals.


our TECH STACK

Our platform is backed by a Kubernetes infrastructure hosting Python and Elixir services, along with typical supporting elements such as SQL- and no-SQL databases and event busses. We also manage our own CI/CD pipelines via Jenkins CI.

We ingest data from a number of external sources, which is processed by our platform and that in turn services a number of React-based frontends: a React Native mobile application for iOs and Android, a React web portal for clinicians at hospitals, and internal management tools also built in React. Finally we make pseudo-anonymized data available to our Data Science team via a Data Warehouse, where it is processed and investigated as part of building algorithms and models to assist clinical decision-making.

Our architecture is still evolving as we go. You will get to have an impact on the design and implementation of the architecture as a whole, as we adapt it to meet current and future needs.

In short: Elixir, Python, Kubernetes, TypeScript, React, React Native


WHO ARE YOU

First and foremost, you’re someone who loves programming and building software.

You might be an experienced software engineer with a track record of building solid software and tackling complex problems. You have probably worked with databases and storage engines, designed and helped consume APIs, and you may have experience in one or more of software architecture design, DevOps, and mobile applications.

Or you might be an engineer with less experience than that. What you lack in experience you make up for with a strong drive to grow and learn, to try new tools, languages and technologies, and to work alongside experienced engineers in a cohesive team.

Regardless of level of experience, you:

  • understand that building software is about weighing the trade-offs between possible solutions, and you are open to collaborative processes like pull requests & peer review.

  • are looking for an opportunity to turn your passion for programming and software towards something that will genuinely help real people in need.

  • want to help drive innovative solutions at the forefront of healthcare.


WHY WORK WITH US

  • Our work makes a real difference for patients. This is exceedingly difficult in a time where the primary focus for most hospitals is on both cutting spending and figuring out how to manage more patients in more meaningful ways. Our current platform proviodes real, tangible difference for cardiac patients and clinicians, and our future plans will continue expanding how we can do that through data analysis, visualization, decision support, machine learning, process optimization and so on.

  • We’re all passionate about our journey and each other. The team is here to make a difference and to enjoy things while we do! Hiring the right engineer is two-folded. One part is finding great programmers and thinkers, while the other - just as important part - is to find colleagues who work well together and who enjoy each other’s company. We don’t want one without the other.

  • We’re allergic to siloed work. We’re still a small team and we firmly believe that we should all understand why we are building what we are, what the business value is, the needs of patients and clinicians and other parts of the company. We spend a lot of effort making sure we don’t end up with “silos”, where people just hand things off to another team and forget about it. We practice activities such as Eventstorming, Domain-Driven Design, Behavior-Driven Design, sitting engineers down with actual patients and clinicians, and on a more general level by the different parts of our team working closely together.

  • We’re solving hard problems. Doing health tech right is very difficult for a number of reasons. Some of them are related to technology: stability, security, transparency and reproducibility are core concerns in our platform, which are a different beast than the typical throughput and scaling; standards and protocols for health tech are still evolving and often misappropriated, and so often require creative solutions; hospitals run a large variety of different systems in concert. Other reasons are more practical: different hospitals and clinics simply have different workflows and this can and does impact the way we have to design software to support those individualities. Finally there are legal, ethical and moral considerations: GDPR compliance, security, auditing and logging, local and EU law, etc.
