Full-Stack Developer – Public Health Domain

What you will do

You will join EDiT’s Public Health cluster, a multi-disciplinary team of developers, architects, user researchers, domain experts, and product owners, collaborating on projects that aim to develop innovative solutions that lead to insights in how we can live longer, healthier, more satisfying lives. As a senior developer you will play a leading role in the creation of a framework, and applications on top of it, that enable ambitious studies that investigate the factors that impact our health & well-being. Together with our team you will build platforms that ingest both clinical and “real world” data (e.g. from wearables), feed it to models and visualise results, such that citizens, healthcare professionals and policy makers can make sense of it. You will apply your experience to coach junior colleagues in the latest best practices in development, testing and DevOps.
