What we do

As a Senior Software Engineer, you're going to be part of a Berlin-based international team focused on improving the performance, features and design of our core product for healthcare professionals, the BMS (Booking Management System).

Doctolib's unprecedented growth in the last 10 years was made possible thanks to pragmatism and avoiding premature optimisation at any cost.  In order to keep growing, performance is a critical priority and we are constantly evolving how key features are architected to scale for future needs.  Because of this, we are re-architecting our Appointments Availability Service.  For this service to meet the needs of our Users, high throughput and scalability are crucial.  Therefore, we are building this critical service from the ground up leveraging modern event driven, distributed technologies inline with our redefined Technology Strategy. This new Service will help pave the way for a new direction in the way Care Teams offer Appointments, matching Patients with faster access to Care.

What you’ll do 

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be responsible for:

  • Building this critical service from the ground up as an independent runtime and leveraging modern event driven, distributed technologies;
  • Thinking user first and helping improve our user experience through new features and design updates, while maintaining high code quality standards;
  • Taking leadership on delivering roadmap items (together with the team);
  • Helping keep our bug backlog small;
  • Contributing to establishing a technical vision and co-drive the creation of the roadmap for the next quarters;
  • Bringing your expertise and past experiences to help us continuously improve the way we work.
