Job Description

We’re looking for an experienced (4yrs+) back-end engineer to lead the building of our tech stack and leave a lasting impact on global healthcare.

-----------------------------
About Vine Health
-----------------------------
Vine Health is a digital platform that uses a combination of behavioural science and artificial intelligence to improve the quality of life and survival of cancer patients.

Our mobile platform helps people living with cancer to collect, track and visualise data about their care, helping them to feel more in control. We intelligently integrate disease data (medications, symptoms, side-effects) with lifestyle data (exercise, sleep, diet) and we use AI to understand patterns and triggers in the data in order to personalise the patient experience and nudge behaviour change.

We’re an early-stage startup looking to grow our company and our product; we have an incredibly exciting journey ahead of us with plenty of opportunities for personal development and working with a world-class team of doctors, developers, designers and more.

Get in touch if you want to play a key role in a high-impact, fast-growing startup and if you’re passionate about making a big impact.

-----------------------------
About the role
-----------------------------
You will be reporting to the CTO and will be a senior member of the engineering team. Your job is to initially help us move from our private beta product into full market launch later this year. After that it’s scaling out the product for production. It’s a small team and we all need to help each other out so there will be some exposure to the full stack. Currently the app is written in react-native (Javascript) and served by a Firebase (GCP) backend. Your first task will be to migrate that backend to Python + Postgres. In time we will likely refactor our backend into smaller services which we will run on Kubernetes.

We're a young company, so you'll need to get your hands dirty and no two weeks will be the same. The ability to cope with uncertainty and rapid change is crucial.

We're looking for someone to be a real part of the team. You spend a lot of time with the people you work with, so we want it to be fun and rewarding rather than feel like a chore. That means having a passion for what we're doing, wanting to make a real difference to people's lives, having interests outside of work, sharing knowledge with your colleagues, and adding to our company culture.

-----------------------------
About You
-----------------------------
You’ll have been writing production Python for some time now, and understand its ins and outs. You’ll have written a number of REST apis in Flask or Django. You will also have been deep into the data tier and will be comfortable with web system architecture and design. You will also have had some devops experience, ideally maintaining a continuous delivery pipeline and deploying to Kubernetes on GCP or AWS. You will play a key role in shaping our tech stack.

Skills & attributes:
- Core Python with and without frameworks
- Core programming and software engineering
- Agile methodologies
- Problem solving
- Attention to detail
- Curious
- Humble
- Quick to learn
- Empathy for our users
- Passion for technology, startups and healthcare

What you’ll be doing:
- Full back-end design and development with some exposure to the full-stack
- Growing and maintaining our database and stack
- Supporting our CTO with the development and mentoring of the engineering team
- Working with the wider team to understand our customers and their needs
- Supporting your team with pair programming and code reviews
- Adding to the team and company culture with your personality, interests, and ways of working

-----------------------------
What we offer

- Highly competitive salary (based on experience) as well as other incentives where appropriate
- Macbook Pro
- Development expenses
- Free tea and coffee
- Beautiful office space in the heart of the city surrounded by lovely restaurants, bars, gyms and public transport
- Beautiful onsite cafe style break area
