MedicSpot is a super small and well funded Med-tech startup delivering comprehensive GP consultations via a unique network of telemedicine clinics. We’ve grown to over 150 clinics in a year. Our patients love us with numbers growing 20% month-on-month and a net promoter score of over 70. The industry also recognises our excellence and we were awarded the highest marks of any Health tech company in our CQC (industry body) report.

It works like this; Patient’s book or walk into one of our clinics and sit at a telemedicine station. A doctor joins via video chat and can use the connected medical devices allowing a doctor to provide a thorough, safe, clinical examination. This means we treat more conditions than any other service. Any required medication is immediately available at the local pharmacy (most MedicSpot clinics are within pharmacies).

Our team consists of Adam and Lucas who make up our ambitious and friendly marketing duo. Zubair (our CEO, also a GP, also MBA and serial entrepreneur) heads up the company with fundraising, business development, clinical services, you name it. Naila and her customer support team Colin and Kyle make sure everything runs smoothly. Myself and Jamie build the hardware and software to power the service. We also have a roster of the finest doctors to conduct the consultations and help improve the system.

Everyone in the team is friendly, supportive and ambitious. We’re good at what we do and we have a strong culture of trust and respect. We’re looking for an engineer who has the aptitude to learn, teach and build amazing products. We’d much prefer a friendly, smart and efficient candidate with the capability to reflect on people, processes and systems than an redbull fueled burnout alpha ninja.

MedicSpot is built with developer friendliness and productivity in mind. So expect `docker-compose up` to get everything up and running. We like products to be beautiful inside and out. We create clean, consistent react and node architectures for webapps and API services.

We’ve done enough to know we’ve got lots to learn. So we want to add new skills and experiences to the team. We can support your journey learning SOA, JS, testing, docker, HTML5, UX and accessibility and are keen to learn new things from you. If you have experience with Kubernetesx or IOT it would be a great addition to the team!

The MedicSpot system is made up of many individual products which work together to power the service our patients love. We’re looking for a full stack JS engineer who will enjoy the freedom of owning a set of products and making them the very best it can be. We’re looking for someone who can be (or grow to be) a lead engineer to help shape our product team.

Hopefully you like:

  • Chipping in with different disciplines and helping the wider team
  • Leading products and building teams
  • Well defined and simple module/app concerns and interfaces
  • JS (node 10, ES6+)
  • React (or at least the declarative pattern it embodies)
  • Flat service oriented architectures (REST, JWT)
  • Postgres
  • Sensible testing
  • VCS, CI, CD

We’re learning all the time so hope you will share tools and practices to make this even better!

You are a super important hire and we’ll bend over backwards to make you comfortable (as we do for everyone in our team). I hope the team, vision and product will be enough to convince you of the opportunity but please tell us what makes you tick and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

For the starter package we’re thinking:

  • Flexible working hours/locations
  • £60-70k
  • 28 days + bank holidays
  • Equipment & training budget

I’ve been in startups where everyone’s been so absorbed by the challenge of the work that good people who have learned new valuable skills have been neglected. We’ll regularly review the package to ensure great team players are well rewarded.

Now, I can’t promise the shiny offices of big companies yet, in fact we’re currently in a basement in Victoria. But with the pace of change I’ll guarantee that in a year you’ll look back fondly as part of a team you’re proud of. We plan to have a product team of 10-20 and shiny offices too but this time you’ll have had a hand in choosing it!

So please apply if you think you’ll be a good fit and we’ll go for a coffee/lunch and figure out the next steps.

All the best in whatever path you choose and hope to meet you soon!
