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 startups. In two years, we grew from only a few GP practices using us to over 50% of practices in England. Today, over 95% of GP practices rely on us and over the past few months we have worked really hard on driving adoption within Hospitals, our product is now used in over 50% of trusts and this number is growing day by day. Our vision is that anyone involved in a patient's care can communicate with each other.
In response to COVID-19, we spent March and April working tirelessly to release new features to help frontline staff. This includes a video consultation solution that went from zero to 35,000 daily consultations in the space of 8 weeks. We then spent November and December building a vaccination booking system that has already saved frontline staff many hours and helped with vaccination uptake for vulnerable people in the UK. See our public roadmap for what’s up next 😃.
Unlike many healthtech companies, we are a software provider, not a healthcare provider. We allow existing health and care systems (starting with the NHS in the UK) to deliver technology-enabled care, free from any AI/Blockchain-hype.
Life as a Senior Product Engineer at accuRx
We are looking for Senior Product Engineers to join us and help shape the future of our product.
Working closely with our CTO and VP Engineering, you will pioneer front end development and be relied upon as one of our greatest technical experts. As a Senior Product Engineer, you’ll scale and innovate our product like never before, as well as have the opportunity to build brand new solutions. You'll also play a key role in driving technical product choices as part of a cross functional team.
You'll work closely with other Engineers, UX Designers, Product Managers, Researchers and our Clinical team. Together you will work in six week cycles to deliver specific product goals.
You'll be part of an incredibly talented & diverse team of men and women, all motivated by the same mission: to change lives by fixing the world-wide problem that is communication in healthcare.
To best service healthcare practices and build a scalable solution that will be used in every GP practice, hospital and care home in the UK we currently work with Kubernetes, C# (.net core), SQL, React, ES6, TypeScript and Redux (check out our full tech stack here). However, we are constantly learning, iterating and improving. As we continue to grow at a phenomenal rate, who knows what tech stack we will be working with soon - and you could be the person to show us!
What’s unique about engineering at accuRx?
Every day you’ll be applying the “product engineer” mindset. This means being close to users and their needs (e.g. getting involved in user research by joining sessions with patients and their healthcare teams), helping decide what we build (e.g. collaborating on design and specifications), building with a focus on the end goal and being responsible for continuous improvement to the live services you have shipped.

What the team say ...
Liem - Lead Engineer
“Front end at accuRx has really given me a new perspective to development. Often tech jobs are all about making the user spend more money or buy a product. Here, the focus is about making everything as easy as possible for the user. It’s all about product experience! Building features to simplify GP admin tasks or creating the most accessible UI, recently I was amazed by a 96 year old completing their first patient triage request with very little support! "
