Backend developer @ healthcare app

Job description

Salary range 7.000 - 10.000 PLN net/month B2B

Who we are

We are 12 people team developing multiple products for a healthcare company based in central Africa. We believe that honesty, trust, keeping another person back are the values that create a great atmosphere in the team.

Being a part of the team means that we want to hear your thoughts and ideas no matter the platform you work on.

A wide range of skills in the team helps our client to face challenges that are not well known in Europe or America! Our backend is fully based on Elixir and infrastructure on Kubernetes (don't worry we will teach you that!). Visual aspects are carefully covered by close cooperation between our full-time designer and the frontend team mainly working with Vue.js and Angular.js. Last but not least highly skilled mobile team which makes hospital patients life easier using native technologies!

What we do

Our goal is simple - make doctors and patients life easier. We are changing the way how hospitals work in Africa by digitalising and defining healthcare processes. We are working on products which are actively used by over 300 hospitals with nearly 200 thousand patients.

Our software opened the doors to statistics across hundreds of hospitals, which wasn't even possible with paper documents. The charts and numbers allow us to understand customers' needs better than ever before!

We are facing technical challenges which are not common in other industries. Bad weather, lack of Internet connection in Africa motivated us to find solutions to run and work with on-premise facilities too.

Every day we start with a standup to make sure that the team is aligned with sprint goals (usually we meet 5 minutes before to get to know each other better). We work in 2-weeks sprints preceded by refinement and planning session. At the end of the sprint, we make sure our work gets noticed during the demo session!

We bet on self-development, we are looking for curious, ambitious people, who want to create a product that matters!
