About Current HealthCurrent Health is a leader in the movement to transition more healthcare into the home. We're a technology company, but beyond our best in class hardware and software capabilities, we help healthcare organisations operationalize care at home and deliver excellent patient experiences through helping with the last mile of care logistics and services. We partner with leading healthcare organisations to advance home-based care in the US, the UK, and around the world.More than doubling in size in the last year, we're building a global team united in one purpose: helping people live healthier, longer lives by predicting disease and enabling earlier treatment. At Current Health, we seek to put patients first, solve problems with curiosity and creativity, pursue uncommon collaboration, and never stop growing. We're a remote-first company, which means that everything from how we work, communicate, and socialise is shaped by tools and culture that prioritise collaboration and support independence. Position SummaryWe are looking for a Senior Engineer with strong full-stack software engineering expertise and breadth of experience to work in one of our Product Engineering teams.Product Engineering teams at Current Health strive to deliver end-end customer and patient outcomes vs. narrow features.

  • Work in one of our software engineering teams, building out our platform and product for use by patients and healthcare professionals.
  • Operate across the stack including both front-end and backend and help build scalable, well-tested applications and micro-services.
  • Influence the team's development practises, effective engineering routine and introspection, using your significant prior experience. Contribute to technical design and code reviews to enable a high performing engineering culture.
  • Work closely with Product Management and ensure the team is delivering key objectives that enable the product to scale, directly improving healthcare provision across the world. You will have a firm grasp on why the team is building functionality, for whom and the value it will deliver. You will also contribute to that product vision and strategy and likely have strong natural motivation to do so.
  • Collaborate closely with other disciplines, including biomedical engineering, data science, electronics engineering and product science. Be aware of the impact of your team's work on other areas of the organisation, including longer term architectural viability of solutions, as well as opportunities for wider cooperation.
  • Help provide 24/7 support for the product, resolving live issues when needed. This isn't a list of hard requirements that must all be met, but an indication of skills and experiences we see as directly applicable to the role.
