Background:

Patchwork is an award-winning marketplace that connects clinicians with vacant shifts, cutting out expensive middlemen.


Our products have helped save healthcare organisations million of pounds every year and help to contribute to a more sustainable NHS. We help hospitals faciliate flexible working, leading to a better experience for clinicians and administrators.


Patchwork are founded by experienced NHS professionals, who’ve been on the front line of staffing issues and set up Patchwork in an effort to solve some of the pressing operational challenges facing hospitals today.


Come and be a part of an impactful organisation as we develop to scale across the country!


The story so far:

Launched in 2016 and working closely with a significant number of healthcare organisations; including hospitals, NHS trusts and specialist charities, we’ve built a reputation around high level delivery and deep organisational understanding of the clients whose ambitions we support through our technology solutions. Now is a crucial time in our progression and expansion as we bring our software development capabilities in-house.


The opportunity:

You'll be working directly alongside our Head of Product and Senior Software Engineer, taking full responsibility for the front end development across our app (iOS and Android), the website and associated web applications.


There is a large program of work, initially seeing us rebuild from scratch the current versions of the app using JavaScript, ReactJS and React Native. No legacy code for you to have to manipulate! And whilst the feature set is well used by our audience (so we are initially replicating in a new tech stack) there is a robust product roadmap of feature enhancement, which you will be a key influencer of.

Once the apps are rebuilt, the website and applications will all have significant user modifications and use case reviews. This means that you’ll become a valuable and significant member of our team.


If you’re looking for responsibility, autonomy and a great collaborative environment, not stifled by bureaucracy and red tape, then you’ve just found it!


About you:

  • A passion for your craft—testing and software quality.
  • Enjoy solving complex problems in healthcare
  • Experience working with teams to ship products and capable of working independently when needed.
  • Proven commercial experience working with JavaScript and experience working with JavaScript frameworks; ideally React or Angular.
