      At Reify Health, we are building a more creative healthcare system. We envision a world where every potential therapy, if safe and effective, is available to the patients who can benefit.

      Our healthcare system relies on clinical trials to develop new, potentially life-saving treatments for patients. But clinical trials continue to be slow, unpredictable, and expensive. Reify Health’s product helps both the research leaders driving forward clinical trials and the doctors and nurses who care for the patient participants.

      As we scale adoption of our product domestically and internationally, we will accelerate world-class clinical research and unlock innovation. By joining our data team, you will support the growth of an empathetic, data-driven culture at Reify and play a key role in developing a novel data architecture and intelligence features.

      • Become intimately familiar with HIPAA, GDPR, and other applicable regulatory/security frameworks and how they influence our architecture and development decisions
      • Frequently communicate your results to Head of Data and other stakeholders in clear written, verbal, or presentation form
      • Live our data philosophy, which focuses on ethical decision making, being aware of how biased data (and assumptions) can affect results (and people), and being laser-focused on business needs
      What Will Make You Stand Out
      • At least 3 years of professional work experience
      • Experience with systems engineering/orchestration and strong ability to understand and work with distributed systems
      • Previous practical experience with AWS, Kafka, and distributed systems
      • Experience with applied cryptography in a healthcare setting
      • Deep Clojure experience in a data application context
      • Experience with security and regulatory challenges of scaling health data architecture to multiple continents
      • Understanding the nuances of testing in distributed/probabilistic systems
      • Master's degree or doctorate in related field
      • Relevant published work (academic, blog posts, open-source contributions)
      • Experience in a startup environment (as a remote employee, if you’d like to work remotely)
      • Relevant experience in a healthcare/health-tech company
      Compensation & Benefits
      • Competitive Salary and Stock Options: Salary and stock options commensurate to your experience and expertise.
      • Comprehensive Health and Wellness Coverage: 100% premium coverage for you (and >50% for your dependents) for: a top-tier health plan covering you in all 50 states (with option of HSA) dental, vision, disability (short-term and long-term), and basic term life insurance (for your entire tenure at Reify). We enable 24/7 access to doctor by phone or online via telemedicine coverage.
      • Retirement Plan 401(k) plan with employer matching program.
      • Company-provided Workstation: You will receive a brand new Macbook Pro laptop to use for work.
      • Location Flexibility & Transportation: For those working out of Boston, we provide: a free monthly public transportation pass (and are located two blocks from Downtown Crossing); unlimited coffee, infused water, and more (provided by WeWork); flexibility to work from home as needed. For those working remotely: you can work from anywhere in the U.S. compatible with an EST work schedule. Additionally, we’ll fly remoters in for company summits and team events, filled with fun activities, good food, and many opportunities to get to know your colleagues better.
      • Vacation and Holiday Flexibility: Generous paid-time-off policy that accrues with your tenure at Reify which includes holiday flexibility and parental leave
      We value diversity and believe the unique contributions each of us brings drives our success. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

      We also completely eschew the “bro culture” sometimes found at startups.

      Note: We are currently only considering US citizens or Green Card holders. Thanks!

    • SpiderOak (US only)
      1 month ago

      About SpiderOak Engineering

      Our Engineering team is comprised of passionate and creative people who are committed to the premise that complexity is the enemy of security. The problem of security will not be solved by layering on more band-aids, e.g. firewalls, packet inspection, two-factor authentication, etc… these actually add complexity by increasing the attack surface. We take a fundamentally different approach by removing the need to trust your infrastructure or your admins through the combination of

      • Zero-trust systems and applied cryptography
      • Distributed ledger

      Our platform and applications – built on Go – enable our customers to collaborate and communicate securely, and we’re looking for growing the team to help us turn this ambitious vision into reality. Our culture is focused on productivity and creativity, and we’re committed to collaboration with our colleagues across the organization.

      Job Description

      Rather than bore you with a long description, let’s cut to chase: your job is to implement distributed services in Go. Some of the specifications will be already written, but others will require you to design new services in partnership with our Security Architects. Additionally, you will iterate over our current codebase to improve it and fix bugs.

      Experience & Skills

      Simply put: you need prior experience in developing in Go. You also should have a desire to work with remote, distributed teams.

      NOTE: Given the nature of our work, candidates must be US Citizens residing in the United States.
