We are seeking a creative, diligent and detail-obsessed Back-End Developer to join our team. We’re looking for the kind of motivated developer who lives on Stack Overflow, with the instinct and experience to sort through the jungle of options for databases, infrastructure, libraries, operating system versions, shell scripts, deployment scripts, block storage, object storage, volume encryption, etc. and orchestrate it all into a tightly running machine across database, APIs and admin, built for scale and ongoing enhancement. In this role, you will balance ongoing automation of the MedStack compiler engine, hardening of the core infrastructure to support our rapid growth with the addition of new features and capabilities that make the creation and integration of healthcare apps even easier.
