You can certainly earn a living building business process management systems or Web 2.0 social marketing tools—don't get us wrong—but does your code change lives? Save lives?
At ACT.md, we're building web applications and analytical tools that will transform how patients, their families, and all their medical providers work together to deliver life-saving care. We may even transform American healthcare while we're at it — creating a paradigm shift from the inefficient work of disconnected individuals to the transparent and fine-tuned collaboration of care teams.
Our founders and advisers are renowned leaders in healthcare and disruptive innovation, but like care teams, we can't do it alone. Join us—those other jobs can wait.
Backbone.js may not be opinionated, but we're looking for a UI Engineer who is. Lead the debate over how we should architect our front-end code and what tools we should use to support the dev lifecycle. Should our Routers include business logic? How should we approach state management? What about model-view binding?
Interested? Contact Jonathan Abbett, Director of User Experience, with your résumé, an example of a web UI you've crafted, and a few thoughts about why you think care coordination is important.
Here's the deal. We're going to give you an empty directory and ask you to fill it with the most tear-jerking, gut-wrenchingly awesome code that runs smoother than molasses on a hot summer day. Of course, just by looking at the description of the company, you already know that we need a scalable infrastructure that is completely secure and has as much tolerance for failure as open heart surgery. The guys here already know how to code, but we want you to make us look like kindergarteners scribbling with crayons.
