Senior Software Engineer - Ruby


Cancer sucks! But, code is powerful, developers are brilliant, and people are resilient.

At CancerIQ, our technology is powering early cancer detection and prevention across broad patient populations. We’re committed to ensuring equitable access to the latest innovation in cancer care — and to building a team that’s as diverse as the communities we serve.

We work with health systems across the country to fulfill our company mission to ending cancer as we know it.

How do you fit in?

CancerIQ Engineering is looking for curious minds that want to solve problems, write elegant code, and iterate quickly. We are a group of ambitious devs who love all things science, web, and technology.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will architect and implement backend and frontend solutions using React, Ruby on Rails. You’ll be developing robust, performant services and user-friendly web clients that can enable clinicians to operate efficiently and gain new insights. You'll practice sound fundamentals with regards to Domain Driven Design, Microservices, and Event Streaming using technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes. Through intuitive visuals and interfaces, you will be creating modern and appealing applications across multiple platforms for patients of all types and demographics.

You will be a leader.

We want you to lead new efforts, promote best practices, and exchange knowledge with the rest of the team.


What are we looking for?

You should have several years of experience and have completed many projects that have enabled you to develop strong opinions on code structure and modularization. With the rapid movement in the web landscape, you shouldn’t be afraid to dive into new technologies and learn from top to bottom.

We use a mixture of technologies, and focus on those that help us get jobs done most efficiently. You should have knowledge of the React framework as well as common javascript tooling such as Webpack, Parcel, or Lerna for frontend development.

You should have deep knowledge of the surrounding parts of the stack with the capability of designing RESTful or GraphQL APIs and backend services. As we scale to reach many patients and institutions, you’d make implementation decisions around scalability, performance, and web page optimization techniques.

The desire to learn and help others are two core values that drive us as a development team. We believe that if you aren’t passionate about these values, then we’re not your best fit. You should be passionate about always learning and growing, as well as spreading new knowledge to team members. As such, you’re a clear communicator and should be able to work with team members effectively.

What are the “Nice To Haves”?

We employ a rapid, continuous deployment system, and as developers are responsible for seeing their features through deployment. Knowledge of cloud, DevOps, and infrastructure tools (Jenkins, GitLab, Docker, Kubernetes, Google Cloud, AWS) will prove to be beneficial.

Experience in healthcare and healthcare technologies (EHRs, HL7, FHIR) is a bonus.

Anything Non-technical?

  • Self-motivated learning
  • Public artifacts and outreach such as blogs, open-source contributions, conference presentations
  • Strong communications skills such as empathy, listening, and conflict resolution
  • A good sense of humor

  • Competitive pay and benefits (health insurance and gym subsidy)
  • Passionate, high-energy culture. Surrounding yourself with people that are excited to get stuff done and make an impact is motivating, and addictive.
  • Ability to significantly impact the company mission and execution.
  • Building products and creating solutions to save lives.
