At accuRx, we're on a mission to change lives by bringing patients and their healthcare teams together.

Who are accuRx?

At accuRx, we're building a world-famous healthcare communication platform. Our mission is simple - to change lives by bringing patients and their healthcare teams together. Our technology is revolutionising how technology is adopted and how care is delivered in healthcare.

Established in 2016 and now with £9m in Series A funding, accuRx is one of the UK's fastest-growing tech start ups. In one year, we grew from only a few GP practices using us to over 20% of the market. Today, over 40% of GP practices rely on us, we've just gone live in pharmacies and will soon be used in hospitals. Our vision is that anyone involved in a patient's care can communicate with each other.

We're on an incredible journey at accuRx with big ambitions, problems to solve and lives to change!

Life as a Senior Security Engineer at accuRx

We are looking for a passionate Security Engineer to join us and help keep accuRx as a pioneer in security. Like many roles at a start-up, you'll have a wide range of responsibilities and lots of autonomy. You will be responsible for:

  • Working with Independent Consultants and third parties to ensure proper testing of our application
  • Testing our current application and architectural security yourself, using off the shelf tools 
  • Working closely with the CTO to define our security strategy for the next year
  • Improving the security of our Devops: who can build, test and release our code and how do we keep this safe but streamlined
  • Ensuring the highest standards of security around patient data and access to this
  • Helping us maintain and pass any new standards (Cyber essentials plus, ISO 27001 etc)
  • Making small coding changes yourself to improve our application security
  • Working with our development team to map out larger changes, including changes in our infrastructure
  • Lots more that we can't even think of yet!

We'd really like to hear from you, if ...

  • You have proven success in a Product / App / Cyber Security role
  • You have a passion for Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing.
  • You have experience improving and defining information and product security processes.
  • You have experience in supporting the creation of IT Security Strategy, for both internal business operations and client facing products.
  • The healthcare industry is something you are passionate about or you already have experience in it.
  • You're mission-driven and care about creating something amazing that will impact the lives of millions.
  • Problem-solving is what you live for - building something that will fix a world-wide problem is what gets you out of bed every day!
  • Change and fast pace excites you - you relish in the constant challenges a start up throws your way
  • You share our values (read more about them in our Culture Deck)

Perks of the job at accuRx

People are what drives us.

Our users are the reason we created our product and inspire us every day to be better.

However, we would not have achieved so much so soon without our own incredible team. In order to continue changing the lives of healthcare practitioners and patients nationwide, we are looking for more fantastic talent to join us!

Here are just some of the reasons why accuRx is an awesome place to work:

  • Meaningful share options, so that you own a part of the company and get rewarded for all of your hard work.
  • Free breakfast daily and constant supply of fruit, snacks and drinks in the office.
  • Weekly team lunches and monthly team dinners, cooked and enjoyed in our beautiful new offices (lead by one of our Co-Founders Jacob, who was on MasterChef, and we love to take full advantage of his culinary skills - so far we've made our own sushi, pizza and pasta!)
  • Office yoga, park runs and gym classes.
  • Annual week-long Summer Retreat - no expense spared - with partners invited for the weekend.
  • £500 annual wellness bonus - to support both physical and mental health.
  • Cycle to work scheme.
  • 28 days holiday (plus bank holidays).
  • Beautiful, brand new office in Haggerston near Shoreditch, equipped with the latest tech and (of course) ping pong table.
  • Pension scheme.

We're building a business and culture to be proud of - see our Employee Handbook in full here.

Why is a diverse and inclusive workplace so important to us?

Each health system is made up of a diverse workforce, serving 100% of the population. We are building for them, not us. We can only transform health systems if we build a diverse team, rich with different backgrounds, opinions and personalities. We are an equal opportunities employer and a pleasant and supportive place to work. We particularly welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in the technology sector, such as women, people with disabilities and individuals from Black and Minority ethnic communities.
