Looking for a good place to put your fine, fine software development skills to work? One of the country’s most prestigious medical institutions needs a bright, curious developer work in the exciting and complex field of informatics. This is a highly desirable gig, promising stability, intellectual stimulation and a collegial environment with all the latest tools and techniques at your disposal – the kind of job that really lays the groundwork for a very successful career.
The Nitty Gritty
You’ll sit with a small team of developers providing educational informatics for the med school. The actual work will be quite varied, so if you’re something of a jack-of-all-trades who prefers not to do the same thing day in and day out for years, this role will suit you. At various times, you’ll handle version controls, you’ll do Linux patching of legacy apps, you’ll test new programs, you’ll track bugs, you’ll help improve the hardware infrastructure, and you’ll even monkey around with machine learning and neural networks.
You’ll love being part of this team. It prides itself on being a supportive academic environment that encourages learning and advancing your skillset; sometimes your leaders will assign you to a project just to advance your knowledge. You bring your skills and enthusiasm, and the team will see to it that you grow.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
You might have a couple of years of development work already under your belt, or you could be fresh out of school and looking to make your mark – the main thing is you’ve got skills and the right mindset. Specifically, you know your way around Node.js, React.js, MYSQL and Linux, and you’ve done some cloud services work. Ideally, you have some GitHub projects to boast of, as well.
You’re also smart, affable and very team-oriented. And you have a can-do attitude that makes you a joy to work with. Finally, you’re motivated to contribute to super-important work that will satisfy your deep curiosity and constantly feed that hungry brain of yours.
If you’re excited to do work that benefits humanity writ large, don’t be shy about saying so – this outfit prides itself on being an academic institution with a very worthy mission.
If you’re an early-career software developer, it’s hard to imagine a choicer gig. Where else will you find this combination of stability, variety, and a nurturing, collegial atmosphere?
