Ctrl Group is building digital health products to bring personalised health care to everyone.

We’re looking for a senior backend engineer with expertise in Ruby on Rails to join our team in London. It’s a really exciting time – we’re building our first products and taking them to market. So it’s a chance to really make your mark.

You will work with our mobile and web engineers to design a backend to collect, store and process health data safely and securely. You will be our first backend engineer, so you’ll have a significant input on architecture. You’ll also build integrations with other 3rd party systems such as electronic health records. We promote an environment of inclusivity and collaboration, so working alone is rarely the case. We all own the code and enjoy learning new things!

Right now we’re building Fora Health – a platform that supports better conversations between patients and the people that care for them. We’re also building Cognition Kit – new interactive ways of measuring people’s cognitive health (think short games and tasks, a little bit like brain-training, but more scientific). And we have lots more exciting plans for 2019.

We’re changing the way health care works for everyone. We’re making the most of technology to support patients and clinicians in their everyday life. We need to treat the data we collect with the utmost care to make sure it is never compromised. But we also need to make sure that the data is put to use to benefit the patient. Your role as a senior backend engineer will be central in making this happen.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Enjoys working in small teams with designers, software engineers, clinicians and scientists
  • Believes in the role of technology to improve medical research and healthcare
  • Has a solid experience with Ruby on Rails and the willingness to pick up new skills
  • Has significant experience designing and implementing backend systems and APIs for mobile and web clients
  • Understands the strengths and weaknesses of different architectural approaches
  • Has experience configuring the underlying infrastructure for back-end systems
  • Favours tried and tested technologies over the latest trends
  • Is passionate about crafting clean code with well-defined structure and logic
  • Is confident writing tests, and believes they are integral to development
  • Enjoys pairing with other engineers and values sharing knowledge and skills

We would be particularly interested in any candidates who have experience with the following:

  • Health data APIs such as SMART on FHIR
  • Amazon Web Services
  • Privacy and security regulations such as HIPAA and GDPR

What we are offering:

  • Competitive salary
  • Pension programme
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Great workspace, 5 minutes walk from Old Street Underground
