Have an engineering background? Use it to directly and ethically impact the experience of thousands of patients every day and around the world! We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer who can realize production-level systems that support dashboards and tools that nurses and hospital administrators will use.
Your contributions will significantly impact how hospitals deliver care for their patients, ultimately reducing the burden of healthcare workers while saving patients' lives.
In particular, you will design Ouva's backend infrastructure that receives streaming data from machine learning modules and processes and delivers it to web interfaces and other end devices. This means you can decide what languages and frameworks we will use, produce prototypes of your decisions, and ultimately build a minimal, working, production-quality system.
Salary. This position pays competitively in USD, regardless of where you live.
Flexible work day. We work remotely and asynchronously, which is why we are looking for a manager of one. Outside of a few meetings that will not interfere with your work day, you can schedule your own day. In a typical day, you can expect to:
We can provide you with space outside of your home to work if you need to (e.g., co-working offices) or help get your home to be more accommodating to work.
21 days off. Time away from work is beneficial to keep a healthy work/life balance. We encourage everyone to take time off when needed and support each other to do the same.
Work equipment. We provide you with the top-of-the-line equipment you need to complete your work. You will receive your own laptop device of your choosing. If you need anything else to work comfortably, let us know.
Coming together. While we fully believe in remote work, we understand the benefits of meeting your teammates in person. Once a week, we make space for you to get together with the people from your town. Once or twice a year (and sometimes more), we get together as an entire team. We will provide accommodation and travel if needed.
Personal education. We will provide opportunities to help you deepen your understanding of your career and life. Improve your language skills with budgets for courses and 1-1 coaching lessons to move to the next stage in your career.
You're creative. You're organized. You're experienced. You've done this before. You want to do it again. You want to do it with us. We're not looking for a superhero who thinks mere hours = good work. Excess doesn't impress us – creativity and efficiency do. We hope you'll have 8 hours a day to work and at least 8 hours a night to sleep.
Then, you are an experienced software engineer with a deep understanding of building live, flexible data-driven systems. You care deeply about bringing your unique engineering mind into creating a considerate and sustainable team. You are autonomous - a manager of one. You will take full ownership of your work and assume responsibility for every detail at every step.
We want to get a sense of how you think and work. To that end, please be prepared to share with us your take on the following:
We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. Each new hire is an opportunity to bring a different perspective, and we are always eager to diversify our company further. Ouva is committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best and most rewarding work of your career.
We value great writers, so take your time with the application and put thought into your cover letter if you are writing one, but keep it to fewer than 1500 words. Tell us why you want this job, not just any job.
We can't wait to hear from you!
