Skills & Requirements

You are an enthusiastic, self-motivated and experienced developer who enjoys working in teams (particularly small teams).

Our ideal candidate will be excited about the possibilities of applying technology to change how healthcare is delivered, and will be creative in coming up with solutions to age-old problems.

We are looking for someone who has:

* 3+ years software development experience
* Experience with building LAMP web applications (Linux, PHP, Javascript (Dojo/jQuery), AJAX, HTML5, Apache and MySQL)
* Experience with e-commerce websites
* Experience in version control (we use git)
* Experience working with and developing API’s
* Knowledge of NginX and the Zend framework advantageous
