Job Description

We are seeking a driven and innovative experienced full stack engineer to join our growing team and help generate solutions to address and meet various requirements and needs to transform healthcare. In this role, you will work on a variety of projects and will play a key part in making sure that end results are designed and delivered according to the relevant business requirements.

As a senior engineer, you will help develop our React front-end application, and our Elixir-based backend APIs.

  • Work with customers, product team, stakeholders, UX experts, and the blockit platform engineering team to design and develop solutions to challenging problems, leading initiatives and providing guidance to technical and non technical stakeholders.

  • You will be challenged to learn new things, use new technology, understand complex relationships with back office systems, and participate in the shaping of solution delivery.

  • Provide thought guidance in systems engineering methods and bring your passion for technology to motivate and inspire on a day to day basis.

  • Take calculated risks, learn from success or failure, and apply that to the next problem in the pipeline.

  • Collaborate across the organization to establish unified and intelligent designs, robust interactions, and minimal code footprint required to deliver features.

  • Do all this in a way that respects teamwork, diversity of opinion, and which maintains blockit’s core values.

  • Scrutinize project constraints to analyze alternatives, mitigate risks, and conduct process re-engineering as necessary.

  • Participate in resolving technical problems as they arise.

    • Github and CircleCI for Development/CD.

    • REST APIs

  • Knowledge in aspects of documentation, wireframing and presentation
