Job Description

At OrbitalRX, we are a highly collaborative, respectful, and inclusive team with an audacious vision to improve our healthcare system by changing the way hospitals manage their drug supply.

We are looking for a Software Engineer to join the team as we expand our product line and expand into new markets. A key part of the engineering team, this position will code across the stack, but will primarily be responsible for frontend web application development, including UI development in React and building out rich data visualization experiences for our users and stakeholders.

This is a position with tons of room to grow. We’re an early-stage startup, which means there’s no shortage of opportunities to jump into other areas of the stack, define internal developer experience and best practices, prototype new technology, and learn all the ins and outs of building and growing a business in a complex space.

Some of the requirements:

  • You're proficient with React and Typescript

  • You’ve used GraphQL and preferably have some experience with working with the Apollo client

  • You’ve written server-side code

  • You know at least one language other than Javascript/Typescript and have used it in a production setting

  • You have worked with AWS and deployed code to it

  • You communicate extremely well, and are comfortable messaging with customers directly

  • You’re driven to make a positive difference: you would be motivated by improving healthcare, even if it’s challenging

  • You collaborate well and enjoy working closely with other technologists, domain experts, and users

  • You demonstrate integrity and respect

For bonus points!

  • You've used git enough to have accidentally disappeared a bunch of code, and to know what to do about it

  • You have some design chops and can put together mockups on Sketch or Figma

  • You have experience building cool data visualizations - graphs, maps, infographics, etc

A little about us:

  • Our stack is React/Typescript, GraphQL (Apollo client), GoLang, PostgreSQL, AWS

  • We work in 2-week sprints

  • We avoid unnecessary meetings - for instance, if there’s a recurring meeting that has lost its value, let’s take a different approach rather than just continuing to meet

  • As a team, we value an overall positive experience of work. We work together to improve developer experience, create opportunities for learning and experimentation outside of sprint work, and cultivate goals around technology and culture

  • The team is remote, but for those of us based in Raleigh, we meet up in person every other Thursday morning for our sprint changeovers and architecture sessions (and we get those Thursday afternoons off)

This is a multi-faceted, collaborative position where you'll be a huge part of a small team, which means who you are is just as meaningful to us as how you work. If the description above sounds like something you’d excel at and enjoy, please contact us to set up a conversation.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
