Make An Impact On Healthcare

More than 250,000 Americans died last year as a result of medical error[1]. Sadly, many of these deaths could have been prevented with existing best practices for quality and patient safety. A hospital’s best tool for standardizing and implementing these life-saving improvements are their written policies and procedures. PolicyStat’s mission is to improve healthcare delivery by making those policies and procedures easier to find, access, and enhance. Our clients (across 46/50 states) use our SaaS application to ensure that this critical information is correct, their staff can find it, and that it supports regulatory compliance.

You deserve an environment with clear goals, problems that are meaningful and challenging, the autonomy necessary for creativity, and the support/resources necessary to make a dent in the universe. We want to provide you with that environment so that together, we can improve healthcare.

Help Us Collaborate Towards Awesome

In this role as our 5th engineer, an experienced software engineering generalist, you will be a critical part of our engineering team. You will spend time on all aspects related to delivering a great web application to our users. We're a small team, so you'll sometimes be asked to wear hats ranging from API design to algorithms and libraries to front-end engineering.  We’ve recently been freed from the tyranny of supporting Old IE, and we’re excited for the opportunity to improve interaction for the hundreds of thousands of people that rely on PolicyStat.

Our Development Culture

Our current technology stack and toolkit is focused around Django, Python, Javascript, GitHub, Vagrant and Trello. We use TDD, 100% code review, pair programming, Kanban (not sprints), monthly OKRs, and continuous delivery to manage our development process. We're jumping on the React + GraphQL bandwagon and testing the #serverless waters with Zappa. We really enjoy building things for people, so we deploy to production multiple times per day (~650 times in 2016). We're committed to contributing back to open source as both the right thing to do and the best way to do business.

We get excited about continual process improvement and helping each other become better engineers.

Totally Strict Job Requirements

There are none, though The Perfect Candidate™ will have:

  • Experience building real web applications for real people using a web framework like Django or Rails
  • Experience using React, Redux, and ES6
  • A passion for the craft of creating beautiful code
  • An understanding of the trade-offs involved with TDD and pairing
  • A GitHub profile with lots of code and experience contributing to open source projects
  • An innate hunger for information on the web, software engineering, and entrepreneurship
