Are we looking for you?

Appt’s small, dynamic team are looking for a full stack developer to use their technical skills for good and help redesign the way that preventive healthcare is delivered in the NHS!

Do you want to code and have social impact?

Appt is a social enterprise (that means we measure and value social impact as well as profits) that has over the last two years been working in some of the most deprived parts of East London to tackle health inequality (the idea that those from the lowest income backgrounds are most likely to suffer the negative effects of ill-health). We developed a prototype that makes it much, much easier for everyone to access the appointments that keep them healthy and free from long-term conditions.

And now, we have been recognized for our work by the UK government. We have been funded by the UK’s Research and Development investment arm, Innovate UK and we are building out our platform to scale our solution to the rest of the UK.

Interested? What will you actually be doing?

You will be working with our design and implementation team - and our users - to translate user requirements into the features that will help us improve the lives of thousands of people. You will be leading our technical architecture design function and you will be responsible for the

This is a great opportunity to join an early stage start-up and grow alongside the role. Appt’s technical team will be growing in the not-too-distant future and we expect that you will help build and lead Appt’s engineering team.

What skills will you need?

We are looking, first and foremost, for a team-player who relishes the opportunity to muck in and get involved. While you would spend the majority of your time coding and solving technical problems, we need someone who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty. You will attend some user research activities with Rianne, Appt’s Service Designer, to make sure you are well versed with our end-users’ needs.

This role would be a great fit for someone entrepreneurial, someone who has their own opinions and isn’t afraid to speak their mind. We are looking for someone who is comfortable with not having all the answers but knows how to go and look for them.

Experience in healthcare technology is strongly preferred. Working with the NHS can at times be a challenge – someone who understands how things work and knows how to navigate the system and find answers to technical questions will have a big advantage in performing in this role. If that experience is in primary care (rather than secondary or social care), even better.

We have a list of must haves:

  • C# (3 years + professional experience)
  • SQL (solid working knowledge)
  • Web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript - 12+ months)
  • Azure or AWS experience

Nice to haves:

  • Commitment to using technology for social good

What will you get in return?

You will also benefit from flexible working (work wherever you feel most productive - UK based only though, with the team based in Hackney, East London) and 30 days annual leave. Stock options for the right person.

Salary range £45,000 — 55,000
