Junior Developer at MedMe Health
About the role
Welcome! - Rui, Nick, & Purya
We're building the OS for pharmacies of the future.
As selling drugs becomes automated & less profitable while healthcare costs skyrocket, we believe that pharmacies will transform from stores selling drugs to community health hubs — where anyone can get accessible, quality, and proactive care. And we want to be the technology backbone to accelerate this transformation.
Our web-based platform has already been used by 7M+ patients coast-to-coast, and we serve 1600+ pharmacies of all sizes. COVID-19 has sped-up legislations and created immediate demand for our platform, and we are currently helping people get their COVID-19 vaccine — safely and accessibly.
As a team of pharmacists, product designers, & health systems experts, our mission is to create the first, all-in-one cloud-based platform that empowers pharmacists to deliver clinical services***** at scale. If you're passionate about creating impact, building inclusive products that users love, and working with a mission-driven team, let's talk!
*These are services like giving vaccines (flu/covid), prescribing medications, point-of-care testing, and managing chronic diseases. Read more about pharmacists scope of practice here!
💊Why Join MedMe?
We are a small and mighty multi-disciplinary team with past lives in data science, policy/social innovation, finance, consulting, kinesiology, and aerodesign. Fundamentally, we are all passionate about transforming healthcare by leveraging the untapped potential of pharmacists.
More than anything, we look for humble individuals with a boundless appetite for learning, knack for empathy, and tenacious work ethic.
Mentorship and iterative growth are vital to us and we have a constant rotation of students across all disciplines (PharmD/MBA/Eng).
Every feature we ship directly supports the fight against COVID-19 — this is a defining opportunity to positively impact millions of people.
We’re hiring a Junior Developer to join us in building Canada’s leading cloud-based clinical service management platform for pharmacies. Our web app allows patients to easily book services like vaccines and connect with their pharmacists virtually, while empowering pharmacists with digital tools to deliver these services at scale. Your work will have a direct impact on millions of Canadians coast-to-coast.
You’ll be working remotely with our lean and agile development team. On the day-to-day, you’ll be closely collaborating with peers on weekly feature enhancements and building new modules. Ideally, you’ll have exposure to building web applications - we use React and Java with GraphQL and a Postgres database on AWS infrastructure. If you’ve had exposure with this (or a similar stack), you’ll find yourself at home here. We’re looking for motivated, driven individuals who love web technology and have a healthy ambition to learn. With those qualifications and our team’s support, you’ll achieve mastery of web development at MedMe.
At MedMe we are revolutionizing the role of pharmacists in healthcare. As a full-stack developer working at MedMe, some example projects you could expect to work on include:
- Creating new patient and pharmacist flows (eg. intakes, modules, features) to meet the needs of both our national enterprises and mom-and-pop pharmacy partners
- Responding to urgent COVID-19 feature requirements balancing process, platform stability, and the urgency required. Our pharmacists serve on the frontlines of the pandemic and every feature shipped is deeply impactful to their patients and practice
- Working with 3rd party digital health platforms (eg. archaic EHRs/pharmacy software, remote monitoring devices) to facilitate integration and data interoperability that allows pharmacists to deliver more personalized, proactive care
MedMe may be a good fit if you...
At a high level, we’re after individuals who have an appetite for growth both personally and professionally within every feature and project they own. We’re a passionate startup team with a tenacious work ethic and we rely on each other to succeed. We expect you to contribute to that team dynamic, while also enabling you to thrive and continuously grow during your time here.
We have a start-up culture where we stay on our toes, ready to pivot to support new vaccine rollouts, new legislations, or just plain better product ideas. We’re looking for candidates who share this entrepreneurial spirit. A key to making this culture work is clear and open communication. Every team member cares about feedback, enjoys collaboration, and communicates clearly and effectively.
Typically, a junior member on our team will have had exposure to the fundamentals of web development, either through school or personal projects. For us, it’s less about where you graduated and much more about your passion, drive to learn, and what you’ve been doing. We’d love to hear about any projects you have worked on.
We pay junior developers 60-85k and equity depending on experience and impact. We provide a flexible health benefit plan to all employees as well as professional development support.
