Our Story:

We are a 13 strong, female-founded, digital health startup building products for chronic health conditions. Our first app, which helps people with Type 1 Diabetes make decisions about their self-care, was launched in the UK last year. We’re growing our engineering team, and would love to hire at least one – and possibly two – thoughtful, creative, and experienced Software Engineers.

Our approach uses science, engineering, and design to build products that empower people to make better decisions and provide personalised support. This is the role where all your experience and interests could get used: your work in large-scale enterprise development, the iOS app you built, the website where you wireframed the user journey, your interest in psychology or how the human body works and your fascination for hardware and embedded systems. We love meeting the whole human, so we’re not just interested in your engineering skills!

Our new team mate will see themselves in the following:

+ You love being part of a team. You’re the kind of person who finds new ways to work (especially remotely), makes things better for everyone, loves helping others to grow and improves psychological safety and collaboration across the team.
+ A pragmatic approach to software engineering; the needs of the user come first, technology is a means of solving a problem, and you break complex problems down into smaller stories.
Underpinning all of this is a desire to get started with the simplest possible thing and build from there.
+ You want to shape what gets built. You want to do more than just write code and you’re excited about being part of a creative, evolving Product Team that loves trying new things.
+ Comfortable working in a codebase where you’re jointly responsible for everything from the UI layer to the backend services (and everything in between!)

Our Techstack:

+ Our iOS app is written in Swift and uses Realm DB for persistence. We make heavy use of HealthKit to interface with blood sugar and activity monitoring devices. Parse is our backend, with smatterings of Python for data analysis. We’ll start building for Android next, so this is going to evolve very quickly.

Some interesting facts about us:

+ Most of the engineering team have learnt Swift since joining. Our track record is hiring developers who are good at the stuff they know, but who still want to learn more of the stuff they don’t yet know. While no-one loves a list, for this role, familiarity with two or more of Java, Javascript, Clojure, Kotlin, Python and Swift would be really useful.

+ We were picked for Apple Entrepreneur Camp, Apple’s way of supporting Black and female-founded businesses in the iOS ecosystem. Since our launch last September, we are the most downloaded diabetes app in the UK & Ireland and are planning to roll the app out to the US this year.

What we offer in return:

+ Strong salary
+ Stock Options
+ A nurturing, progressive culture.
+ A holiday policy that works on the basis of accountability: be reliable, get your work done, and take as much time off as you need.
+ The opportunity to be part of a team making a difference to the lives of others
