In collaborative teams of developers, designers, product owners, and QA experts, you’ll experience best-in-class software development practices on a daily basis and contribute to software that meets the highest expectations — we do not put our users' lives at risk!

  • You enjoy guiding and sharing your knowledge with other developers

  • Great written and verbal communication in English, including technical terminology

What you will be working with:

  • We are always trying to stay on top of the game and use modern tools and approaches standardized across the industry.

  • Our codebase is Kotlin-first with usage of Dagger, Coroutines, reactive programming with Flows, Material design, ViewModel architecture and more

  • Unit tests and continuous integration is an important and integral part of our development process. We know there is no excuse not to write tests and the only way to go fast is to go well

  • You will learn about the wide range of technologies we employ, gaining a rich understanding of the specific requirements of medical software, be it security, medical risk management, safe and resilient programming, or certifications and audits

Bonus Skills:

Here's what you can expect from us:

  • Ambitious and passionate people building meaningful products

You will learn about the wide range of technologies we employ, from native mobile development to infrastructure-as-code in our cloud environment, gaining a rich understanding of the specific requirements of medical software, be it security, medical risk management, safe and resilient programming, or certifications and audits.
