Meddbase is a SaaS healthcare web-application that runs all aspects of a medical practice (from GP practices up to large hospital groups). Our application includes:
We have a very relaxed working environment that is more akin to a start-up than a company that’s been running since 2004. We have a team of 20 + developers who are very capable and committed which work in our very collaborative environment.
Obviously with web-application development there’s a reasonable amount of CRUD work, that’s a given. But we have also developed interesting in-house tech of our own (distributed databases for document storage, natural language processing for clinical text parsing, UI frameworks, DSLs, language-ext, and echo-process, to name a few).
We run on our own machines in high-security data-centres as well as hosting some systems in Azure. We have Infrastructure and Site Reliability Engineers that work closely with the Developers on deployments and monitoring.
The people we need are ‘self-starters’ and are happy to work on any part of the stack, from UI, to back-end, to data-centre automation, services etc. You must be prepared to develop code using the functional paradigm – this is super important!
We need creatively minded individuals who can solve unique problems; not just with code problems, but in improving healthcare too. We need programmers than can hear a real world problem and think creatively and with empathy for the end user.
You should have significant C# and web-development experience. Haskell and F# experience is useful but not essential.
We have a number of micro-services and libraries written in F# and will be implementing some of our new key architecture in Haskell. If you don’t have functional language experience, you will be expected to learn and use it (the core application is C#, so that will give you time to get up to speed anyway). We encourage Developers to share their knowledge with the rest of the team and run book clubs and presentations to facilitate this.
We value career progression for individual contributors and have a number of Developers that now hold Principal Software Engineer positions, you don’t have to become a manager to be promoted here.
If you know Language-Ext (and understand why it exists) then that will help, as we use it throughout the ecosystem to bring robustness. SQL Server is our primary database solution, so experience with that is essential – but we also use Postgres. If you have any Postgres experience that would be valuable.
Ideally you will be degree educated, but what we do want to see is experience and a passion for what you do. Github projects are incredibly helpful for that, but any examples of work are also valuable. Written and spoken English must be good and you must be a UK resident and have the right to work in the UK.
Skills & Requirements:
In 2004, we created a comprehensive healthcare web-application that runs all aspects of a medical practice, from GP practices up to large hospitals groups. Our product enables single and multiple location private medical practices to connect securely to their data from any location worldwide. The business is thriving and we are proudly the leading online medical management system on the UK market.
At Meddbase, we pride ourselves on putting our users first. From innovative software products like patient portals, video consultation, intelligent prescribing and reporting tools to pioneering our API for devices like the Android, iOS and web browsers; we build products that help organise healthcare and make it universally accessible to our customers.
Although our business has been up and running since 2004, we foster a relaxed working environment that has a ‘start up’ feel. Whilst our primary office is in the City of London, we also have a superb new office space in Southampton and post-Covid we are flexible and supportive of staff working from home where possible.
As we grow Meddbase, we’ll aim to keep our teams creative, efficient and customer-focused even as we introduce additional leadership and structure.
We tend to hire creative and passionate individuals who thrive on finding innovative solutions to problems. We do not expect everyone to have a degree-level qualification to join our business. Whilst some roles demand extensive technical skill and ability, we value people with engaging communication skills to interact with our non-technical healthcare professionals. We do expect everyone in our team to take responsibility, share knowledge and act in the best interests of our customers and team mates.
We offer competitive salaries for all our roles and have an employee profit share scheme. Our working environment is friendly and comfortable. Our office is located minutes from Liverpool Street Station and Moorgate underground.
Our working hours are 9.00 – 5.30pm with an hour for lunch. You will not be expected to work extremely long hours, as so often happens in software companies. We prefer the approach of ‘it’s a marathon not a sprint’, so we actively discourage working gruelling hours. Ad-hoc home working is also a part of our working culture as we understand the need for flexibility.
Our company benefits (upon completion of probationary) include:
• Life assurance of 4 x annual salary
• Subsidised gym membership
• Private health care (length of service conditions apply)
• Ad hoc and scheduled social events
• Beverages plus fruit & biscuits available for peckish moments
• Quarterly town hall meetings with drinks & snacks
• Opportunities to get involved with our ‘culture committee’
• Optional participation in charity events
Once you join our team, we will ensure you have a thorough induction to Meddbase and the teams. After 4 months, we set aside time to talk about how you are settling into you role and team. We then progress to holding annual performance reviews but there are lots of informal opportunities to talk about any support you need to thrive at Meddbase.
