Overview

Mediately is growing and we’re looking for a Systems Engineer (with some dev skills)!

We help doctors with immediate medical information on their phones, helping them provide the right treatment at the right moment. With our mobile app, we make their jobs easier and save them time, so they can dedicate more time to their real job, helping patients. We started with an idea from two doctors in 2012, and we are now by far the most popular medical information app in 7 countries and expanding, with an enthusiastic and growing team of 18 people.

Used daily by 60.000 doctors and a combined 120.000 healthcare professionals, we answer (literally) millions of their questions each month, about which drug to prescribe, how to prescribe it, how to diagnose a disease, and much more. And our users love us (check our reviews), more than half of all doctors in Slovenia use the app daily. We’re expanding to even more countries and adding more features, so we need you!

We’re looking for someone to help us maintain our infrastructure and automating data collection. You will be joining a team of 4 backend devs (4 more in the mobile team) and your main tasks will be:

  • Management and monitoring of our Linux-based servers
  • Getting our infrastructure ready for scaling and redundancy
  • Introducing best practices and tooling to developers (containers, CI/CD)
  • Maintaining and/or reimplementing our event data aggregation layer
  • Keeping our infrastructure secure

StartupJob

You will be happy to hear that our mobile apps are quite independent of the backend, so we do not have middle-of-the-night emergencies, ever. On the other hand, programming skills are needed. Our data aggregator is written in Ruby (like the rest of the backend), so knowing it or willingness to learn is required. You will be maintaining the existing aggregator at first, until we jointly decide whether it’s worth redoing it with a stack more fit for the purpose. (In a nutshell, raw event data from the mobile apps is being aggregated into a data warehouse, queryable over many dimensions).

Obviously, you need to be comfortable with relational databases, Linux and the command-line. Experience with Amazon AWS is helpful as all our servers are hosted there.

We offer to hire you full-time with an indefinite contract (“nedoločen čas” in Slovenian law), but of course you might have other preferences. We do not obsess over formal education, as long as you have the skills we need.

We have nice offices in the very heart of Ljubljana, but if you think you have enough self-discipline, we have no problem with remote work and weird work hours. We use agile development methods as much as is practical, but we’re not zealots. A very short daily meeting is unavoidable, otherwise we will let you work in peace.

If you see yourself helping our user base of 120.000 medical professionals and almost 2 million patients (growing ~90 % yearly in the last few years) who currently depend on us for fast, useful and objective drug information, contact us at jobs at mediately.co!
