  • Gathering and processing large volumes of data, you'll play a meaningful role in improving a backend that processes very high volumes of raw data.

  • Supporting the rest of the team in squashing bugs and improving the quality of our main Rails application.

  • Contribute to technology strategy – we will decide together how to evolve our data processing pipeline using technologies that fit our purposes.

  • Mentor junior members in the team, e.g. by reviewing their pull requests while providing constructive feedback, helping them when they have questions, as well as more pro-active mentoring sessions.

  • Stay up to date with the latest trends in technology

Sounds interesting? Here’s what we’re looking for:


  • You have 5+ years of experience developing high traffic web applications

  • Strong experience with data processing, we use PostgreSQL for almost everything.

  • Strong knowledge of provisioning and orchestration tools. We presently use SaltStack and Terraform.
  • Strong knowledge of Linux system administration, preferably Ubuntu.
  • Knowledge of multiple programming languages. Right now we use Ruby-on-Rails, Rust, and Go with Gin.
  • Strong knowledge of cloud environments, particularly AWS and DigitalOcean.

  • Good knowledge of the fundamentals of software development – how to structure programs and decompose problems, when to apply patterns, and understand to select the right paradigm for a task.
  • Next to speaking English fluently you are able to understand and translate business requirements into clearly articulated technology solutions.

Nice to Have:

  • Experience with stream processing tools (Apache Storm, AWS Kinesis etc)
  • Knowledge of CI/CD systems and practices
  • Experience with Docker and service discovery layers/consensus systems (Consul, etc)


  • You're passionate about programming. You know how to run code, not just write it.

  • You're excited to learn new technologies and best-practices.

  • You’re always up for pairing and tackling problems with your colleagues.

  • You're eager to learn, contribute to design and architecture decisions, and inspire change.

  • We at Redox understand that we are all patients, and our mission is to make healthcare data useful and every patient experience better. Our values represent the basis of our culture of trust, transparency, and personal growth, and define how we want to interact with each other and the world.

    Redox’s full-service integration platform accelerates the development and distribution of healthcare software solutions by securely and efficiently exchanging healthcare data. With just one connection, data can be transmitted across a growing network of more than 500 healthcare delivery organizations and more than 200 independent software vendors. Members of the Redox Network exchange more than seven million patient records per day, leveraging a single data standard compatible with more than 40 electronic health record systems. We are on a path to double our number of client connections over the next year and need to continue to build applications that scale accordingly.

    About the Team

    Our applications provide ingress and egress pathways that are responsive to the communication and data format needs of our customers, all while being resilient to our scaling needs to process millions of records per day. Our engineering teams own their solutions, enjoying the autonomy to design and implement the technical solutions to the hard problems presented by the myriad ways of exchanging healthcare data. 

    A sampling of the technologies we use to implement these solutions include:

    • Libraries and µ-services built using TypeScript/NodeJS
    • Data management using Postgres, Kafka, and Redis
    • Horizontally scalable containerized deployments using Docker, Rancher, and Kubernetes
    • Application monitoring using InfluxDB, Grafana, and SumoLogic

    An impactful engineer will:

    • Collaborate with other team members to continue to scale our architecture, taking into account the needs of today while remaining flexible enough to evolve for the needs of tomorrow
    • Work within a µ-service architecture, creating new solutions and decomposing our existing monolith
    • Own projects from end to end, executing on designs involving multiple fellow engineers
    • Participate in all phases of the SDLC - from requirements, design, and development through testing, deployment, maintenance, and support
    • Create RESTful APIs that adhere to best practices, as well as build out tolerant async models of communication
    • Understand the tension between an ideal end state and delivering value quickly and effectively prioritize between those options
    • Bias towards action while solving the biggest problems in sight

    Your day to day will consist of:

    • Pairing with other team members, embracing a culture of collaboration and mutual respect to solve complex problems
    • Designing solutions to feature requirements as prioritized by Product Management
    • Implement solutions through the entirety of the SDLC, including testing, deployment, and operationalization
    • Create generic solutions to complex problems
    • Reviewing fellow engineer’s code prior to shipping
    • Troubleshooting production issues as they arise and building a more fault-tolerant system

    Preferred Experience

    • 5+ years professional software development experience in one or more modern general purpose languages (Javascript/Typescript, C#, etc). Your day to day development will be spent working with NodeJS and TypeScript, but we are more interested in your ability to solve problems than the language used to solve those problems.
    • Experience writing horizontally scalable applications
    • Experience working with relational data stores
    • Experience integrating with 3rd party APIs
    • Strong desire to expand your professional impact and autonomy
    • Healthcare IT
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills, including pairing
    • Effectively give and receive feedback, both positive and constructive
    • Operate effectively on a remote team
    • Experience leading a team is a PLUS
