Software Engineer – Digital Health Platform Development

Software Engineer – Digital Health Platform Development

At Sage Bionetworks, we believe that we can learn more by learning from each other. By improving the way scientists collaborate, we help to make science more effective. We partner with researchers, patients, and healthcare innovators to drive collaborative data-driven science to improve health. Making science more open, collaborative, and inclusive ultimately advances biomedicine.

Are you the type of person who enjoys engaging with scientists and researchers across many disciplines?  Do you have the ability to break complex technical problems down into manageable pieces, and extract common requirements from disparate sources?  Do you want to be an integral part of a team that includes computational biologists, research ethicists, UI/UX designers, software engineers, and data scientists?  If so, you could be our next Digital Health Platform Engineer.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Working on a team to develop a set of Mobile and Web applications to support both biomedical researchers and study participants.
  •  Producing software designs that support our product domain model and roadmap.
  • Developing back-end services to support better tools for conducting  digital health research studies and distributing scientific data.
  •  Performing testing and operational support for the back-end services (DevOps).
  • Interacting with scientists (internal and external), designers, research ethicists, and others to define and clarify requirements.

We’d love to hear from you if you:

  •  Have a degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or equivalent.
  •  Have experience building, deploying, and supporting software in production environments, especially in cloud hosted environments.
  •  Have versatile and strong programming skills in Java. Experience with Spring and AWS preferred but not required.
  • Are able to effectively collaborate with other engineering team members on n-tier architecture and REST API development.
  • Are able to effectively work with stakeholders (API consumers) on the design of REST APIs, balancing requirements and long-term viability.
  • Have strong verbal, written, and organizational skills.
  • Can demonstrate initiative in taking on new projects and multitask and succeed in a complex and fast-changing environment.
