Job Description

Ref ID: 05060-0011263480

Classification: Software Developer

Compensation: $70000.00 to $90000.00 yearly

Have you been looking for an opportunity to apply your software development experience and deepen your knowledge of the healthcare sector? This is a full-time role with a growing software solutions provider in downtown Vancouver. The office is in a vibrant part of the city within walking distance of transit, shops and restaurants. If you have been searching for a role like this, please read on.


In this software developer role, you will be collaborating with a team of other software developers in the Vancouver office. The projects are mainly related to the US healthcare sector, including pharmaceuticals, medical devices and health insurance. As you can imagine this is a huge sector of the US economy, and there are many problems to solve and challenges to overcome when delivering software solutions in this complex arena.


This is a full-time role which includes a competitive salary, benefits and paid vacation, and a great location in the centre of downtown Vancouver


In terms of specific technologies, the engineering team uses a variety of tools and programming languages to accomplish their solutions. For example, for some of their data intake applications, they are using GoLang and Python. For data visualization they are using D3 and React javascript libraries. And for some of their core applications they are using PHP and PostgreSQL database. But needless to say, they want to hire engineers who can build models, research new solutions, and try new technologies.


One of the attractive elements of this role, is the chance to get exposure to the US healthcare sector, which is a complex and substantial part of the US economy. Within the Vancouver office, you'll be working with people across the company, including researchers and software developers, to deliver complex software solutions to external customers. So as you can imagine, the role will involve lots of communication with different types of people, both inside and outside the company.

As a company, they are investing heavily in technology to automate and streamline their manual processes. Their goal is to reduce the 'busy work' and free up analysts and developers to focus on the more human-oriented tasks such as making sense of the data, and making recommendations based on the available information.

So as you can see, this is a software development role with multiple dimensions, including people leadership, research, analytics and tech!

This is also a great opportunity to talk about your career goals and preferences, and how your goals align with this opportunity.
