Job Description

HealthTap is taking off!

As a Backend Engineer with unique problem-solving capabilities, a deep passion for quality, and the talent to craft amazing, elegant, purposeful code in a variety of languages, we're the kind of person we're looking for. We hope you'll apply to HealthTap!

Who You Are

You craft simple and elegant solutions to the gnarliest problems

You break through conventional thinking and dare to dream

You sometimes laugh at your own jokes

Your solutions are creative-and sometimes a little odd-but you always solve the puzzle in front of you

You iterate until they pull the keyboard out of your hands

You know there are many ways to solve a problem and carefully weigh each trade-off and execute decisively

You despise bobbleheads

On Sunday mornings you're usually hung over from the previous night's hackathon

You are not a prima donna and understand that it takes a village to unleash innovation

You swear that next year is the year you'll make it to Comic-Con

You question assumptions

You are a math god

You believe in practicing your art

You've not yet been won over by the new Doctor

You are a student of lifetime learning

What you want from your next career move

To change the world, one line of code at a time. To be challenged and to learn. To make a real difference in people's lives.

Why we need you

HealthTap is a company that saves lives. A company that is going to change the face of health care for good. We need superlative coders who can realize our vision on a cross-platform development framework (iPhone, iPad, Android, and all browsers) and who are passionate about big data, advanced ontologies, cutting-edge algorithms, reputation scores, localization, and personalization.

As a backend engineer at HealthTap, you'll be part of a tight knit team, flourishing in an engineering- and product- centric culture.

We need you to:

Help shape and define the architecture of, and build the core infrastructure for, our products used by millions

Help solve huge problems working with big data, machine learning, NLP, advanced search, and the next generation of APIs to change and disrupt the health care and health information industries

Create elegant code that's efficient, reusable, and easy to maintain (and that actually saves lives)

Translate user needs that really matter into product requirements and ultimate solutions that surprise, delight, and make a difference in people's lives

Play an important role in helping HealthTap stay at the forefront of digital health, one of the hottest emerging industries

How you're going to change global health care

Your code will make it possible for people to live longer, healthier, happier lives, and will bring concierge medicine and peace of mind to millions of people around the world.

What you've accomplished

BS / MS in Computer Science from a top school or program (or equivalent experience)

Highly exceptional coding skills in multiple programming languages

Extensive experience building awesome, user-friendly, web-based applications using frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Django and Spring

Proven ability to contribute and to "move the needle" in all aspects of a quality-centric, web and mobile-based application development environment (including database design, algorithms, front-end coding, and engineering operations)

Startup or similar experience (preferred) and the drive to live the dream (required)
