Our client has created a new start-up business charged with building a modern software stack that will change the way patients are cared for. Our challenge is to bring together complex diagnostic and treatment data from medical devices and IT systems within a hospital and intelligently process and present this data to doctors and care-givers to improve patient care.   We are looking for candidates with a deep understanding of modern SaaS architecture and experience across the full stack with a “create tools not band-aids” DevOps mindset. If you would rather improve health outcomes for millions instead of helping sell ads on the Internet, this is the job for you!   You'll get to build a SaaS business from the ground up with the ability to influence the product and architecture and lots of opportunities for growth. Plus get to work side by side with a team of world-class doctors and researchers who want to impact global healthcare delivery.    
The Position:   The Technical Lead - Application has overall ownership for a full stack application, focusing initially on architecting and delivering a full stack solution from data access (API layer) to the UI. This includes an architecture that will perform and scale, be easily deployable and supportable, and be extensible to support future use cases and new initiatives.   The lead will define technology choices and the detailed design of the layers, implement code directly, and also ensure high code quality from the team. This is a hands-on role and the lead is expected to deliver critical features, optimize code where necessary, and solve the toughest problems. While this is not a direct people management role, you will be the technical leader of the team, driving best practices, growing the team, and mentoring engineers, and have overall responsibility for software produced by the team.    
  • Software Development: This is a hands-on software development position to write high quality software that will perform at scale, be supportable, and be extensible.
  • Process & Operations: Lead the team to deliver on their commitments, ensuring the design and planning is accurate and work is delivered on time with quality; ensure the software stack integrates with our existing CI pipeline and lead improvement in the DevOps toolset.
  • Leadership: Leads the team “out of the woods” when they’re stuck on a difficult problem by finding practical, creative solutions; mentor and develop the team both on technical concepts; ensures a culture that values technical excellence together with support and compassion for individuals
  • Vision: Shape the future roadmap of the business by investigating new technology, implementing PoCs, and proposing innovative new solutions.
Minimum Qualifications:  
  • BS degree or equivalent in a directly related discipline (CS, Eng, etc.)
  • 12+ years experience
  • Have successfully built, deployed, and supported an enterprise-scale web application in the cloud (in a leadership role)
  • Must have full-stack experience, with expertise in at least one layer
  • Hands-on software development experience in either Java or C++/C# with expertise in at least one
  • Hands-on software development experience in JavaScript with a modern MVC framework (e.g. Angular)
  • Quick learner with the ability to understand complex workflows and develop and validate innovative solutions to solve difficult problems
  • Good communicator, able to talk with stakeholders and customers to explain technology and with the proven ability to take insights from customers and translate them into technical deliverables
