Our mission is to accelerate research for the next generation of health companies.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Lindus Health is looking for a software engineer (full-stack engineer, backend engineer or frontend engineer) to build the platform powering the next generation of clinical trials. Join a small team in the early stages of product development and grow your skills as we scale the product to manage complex trials and bring new treatments to patients faster!

ABOUT US

Clinical trials are in crisis. The industry hasn't changed in 30 years, and the cost of bringing new medicines to market is skyrocketing as a result.

Lindus Health’s mission is to fix this. We accelerate clinical trials, so patients can benefit. We’re building the world’s first full stack clinical trial platform, to conduct faster, safer clinical trials on behalf of companies developing new treatments, and lowering the barriers to participation for patients.

Since launching the company in March 2021 we have helped find over 5,000 patients for more than 25 clinical trials in areas like type 2 diabetes, COVID-19 diagnostics and mental health. We closed a $5m seed round to grow our platform and team.

ABOUT YOU

Our wish list for this role looks something like this:

  • You have 2 years or more experience as a software engineer collaborating in a team
  • You’re a full-stack engineer, or you specialize in backend or frontend development - at this point we have a need for both generalists and specialists. Backend: You have some experience with Python/Django or similar frameworks (e.g., Flask, Ruby on Rails, Node/Express). Frontend: You have some experience with a modern client framework (e.g., React, Vue, Ember).
  • You are product-minded: you want to understand why we are building something to figure out the best how in collaboration with product managers, UX designers and users.
  • You want to be a part of building a new team and new products from scratch. You like an early-stage startup environment where you have autonomy and opportunities to grow in all areas that interest you.

You belong here! If your experience and interests match with some of the above, we want you to apply.

WHAT WILL YOU DO?

In your first month:

  • Learn about clinical trials and the problems we are trying to solve from our co-founders, medical lead and trial managers
  • Collaborate with the product team on a starter project, make your first commits and your first deploys
  • Become familiar with the core components of our stack (React, TypeScript, Django, Python, Postgres, Amazon ECS)

In your first 3 months:

  • Become a part of the regular product development cycle where you work for example on features to collect data from trial participants and to help trial staff keep track of progress
  • Observe the product being used in real trials and support the team in responding to feature requests and bug reports

Within your first year:

  • Take on responsibility for substantial new features and facilitate related architecture and design decisions
  • Shape our engineering practices and work on making the team more productive in areas such as testing, CI, deployment pipelines, cloud architecture
  • Help grow the product & engineering team by interviewing candidates, onboarding new hires and possibly mentoring junior engineers

WHAT WE OFFER

  • Base salary based on experience in the range £55K to £80K, plus 0.1% - 0.3% stock options
  • Unlimited holidays; everyone is encouraged to take off at least 28 days each year
  • Flexible office arrangement; come into the office in London (near Victoria station) as often as you like, or work remotely (within the UK)
  • Monthly team events and days out (pandemic permitting); recently we've been to Legoland, and a Millwall FC home game (decided by popular vote)
  • If working mostly remotely: regular all-expenses paid trips to London to see the whole team (pandemic permitting)
  • Up to £500 towards setting up your home office
  • A new laptop as your main workstation
  • UK visa sponsorship if you’re not already eligible to work in the UK

INTERVIEW PROCESS

  • Initial call with a co-founder (30 minutes): This is your opportunity to learn more about Lindus Health. We want to tell you about our mission and what we're doing to revolutionise health research.
  • Technical discussion with Nik, our CTO and a co-founder (90 minutes): This is a session in two parts where we figure out whether your technical skills mesh with our team. We deliberately don’t demand you write code or solve algorithm puzzles in real time, though you have the option to do a coding challenge at your own pace if you like.
    Part 1: Code. You can choose between talking about a piece of code you’ve already written or complete a coding challenge at home that we then talk about. In the first option, you share a piece of your code that you think is interesting. We will walk through the code together and discuss your thought process, challenges you’ve faced and potential refactorings. If you choose the second option you get instructions for a coding challenge that you can do at your own pace ahead of the discussion. The challenge is designed to take no more than 2 hours to complete.
    Part 2: Architecture & practices. We will share a document with you in advance that explains our team’s current architecture choices and practices. We will discuss what appeals to you about it, what you would change and what you would add to it. As an early team member you will have a real say in evolving this.
  • Values interview (45 minutes): This is a conversation with 1 or 2 co-founders about our values and culture and also your chance to ask any questions you still have about Lindus Health.
  • Meeting the team (one or two calls of 30 mins, or an in-person meeting if you’re in London): At this stage you’ll want to get to know more of the people you’ll be working with. We’ll set up informal calls or meet you in person at our office near Victoria station in London.
  • Offer! If you've come this far, receive an offer and join the team to help us bring about the next generation of healthcare research. We move fast and usually make a decision within hours of your last meeting.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

  • We recognize the lack of diversity in clinical trials as a big problem and make it our business to fix it
  • We're a young company with a small tech team, founded less than a year ago - as we grow further we want our team to reflect the diversity of participants in our clinical trials. We know this will make for a stronger team and a better product.
  • We have a generous vacation policy (unlimited, but a minimum of 28 days per year), ensuring a great work-life balance for everyone
