Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Software Engineer

We believe, in a developing region like Africa, where we have one doctor for every 25000 people, having efficient, scalable and widely accessible healthcare services can make a huge difference and save millions of lives. We started working on this problem because we have experienced it ourselves, both as patients and as doctors, with the root cause being the broken, highly fragmented and complex healthcare systems.

It is for this reason that we started Medikea, a healthcare technology company that is building Africa’s first patient-centric healthcare system that puts the patients first. Starting with primary and preventive care, Medikea leverages on the power of technology to offer a personalized, end-to-end healthcare experience from consultation, to diagnosis, delivery of medication, and specialist referrals. We believe that we can put affordable care on the hands of everyone and enable them to live better, longer, healthier, and productive lives.

Medikea is a team of passionate and mission-driven individuals with their eyes set on transforming the healthcare industry. We are constantly building, learning, and growing. The energy and excitement across the team is palpable. We are giving ourselves this unique opportunity to develop technologies and experiences that our healthcare industry has never seen before. We see ourselves as a career-making company and are looking for the best, brightest, yet humble people to help us make this vision a reality.

Medikea is currently seeking a full-time Head of Engineering to build our tech stack from ground-up. We’re looking for an extremely talented software engineer who possesses that much sought balance of competence and compassion, and who doesn't cut corners when it comes to patient care. Ideally, you'll have the opportunity to build tools and technologies to improve people's health and save millions of lives.

What you’ll build

Our first rule of thumb in everything we do or decision we make on a daily basis - Insane obsession to customers.

  • Beautiful, easy-to-use, mobile first consumer experiences for booking, onboarding, and virtual care (video, audio and chat).
  • Custom Electronic Health Records, that makes it easy for our in-house doctors to create e-health profile for every customer
  • Management portal for our third party partners

What we are looking from you

  • Relevant experience in building scalable & maintainable web and mobile apps.
  • A computer science degree is a plus but not necessary.
  • Ability building/managing technical teams.
  • Ability to accomplish tasks/projects at one-third a time most competent people think possible.

You’ll be a good fit if you:

  • You are pissed off with the status quo and are willing to be an integral part of a team dedicated to building the future infrastructure of healthcare in Africa.
  • Have a personal motivation to not only build tools that impact lives but also building tools that save lives.
  • Have love for the pace, energy, ambiguity, and scrappiness of an early stage startup.
  • Have ability to work with various cross-functional stakeholders & steer groups towards common objectives/goals.
  • Have ability to derive deep insights based on situations or data & communicate the insights across teams and provide actionable inputs.
  • Are looking for a team culture that thrives in solving the hard problems in the healthcare industry, yet most rewarding because if we become successful, millions of lives will be saved at scale.

This role may not be fit for you if you:

  • Have little or no interest to working in healthcare or technology company
  • Are not comfortable working or collaborating with some of the smartest people and learning from them - We are looking to learn from you too!.
  • Are uncomfortable in dealing with ambiguity.
  • Are looking for an environment which provides a lot of bureaucracy, structure and guidance or supervision.
  • Can’t step up to speak or take action on occasions when you think you have the best ideas or plans than what's on the table.
  • Can’t demand or influence the best work out of your colleagues - We strive to make each other better.
  • Are uncomfortable rolling up your sleeves and working on zero-to-one problems where experience doesn't provide much help.
