Senior Software Engineer at AllStripes Research (formerly RDMD)
San Francisco, CA, US

AllStripes’ mission is to empower patients and communities to accelerate drug development for rare diseases. Rare diseases are actually not that rare: 1 in 10 people in the United States has a rare disease, and 50% are children. Your work at AllStripes will directly affect people diagnosed with serious rare illnesses by connecting patients and their data to the researchers who are actively developing treatments. This job requires cultivating a deep empathy and understanding of the challenges that patients face in seeking treatment, and a strong desire to improve medical research and drug development for the better.

About Us

  • We currently have two main projects: our external patient-facing product and our internal clinical operations platform. You will have the opportunity to develop and own new features across both projects.
  • Our stack includes React, Parse Platform (an ORM backed by Postgres), and NodeJS, though you don’t have to be an expert with these specific technologies to apply.
  • We are creating a positive, inclusive, and collaborative engineering culture of technical excellence. We pride ourselves on being scrappy, and we roll up our sleeves and pitch in where we are needed. We are playful and curious about code, research, and building a great company.
  • We have a well-defined roadmap with tons of stuff to build on the horizon. In addition to our current projects, we are looking forward to building out a clinical data pipeline, using natural language processing, and generating research insights from the data we collect.
  • We offer full medical, dental, and vision benefits, 401(k), fortnightly happy hours, and provide a team lunch every Thursday.

About You

  • You should have strong experience working at the intersection of product development and engineering, with a demonstrated ability to turn vision into engineering priorities and successful product launches.
  • You are well-versed in a range of technologies and development philosophies, are deliberate about choosing the right tool for the job, and excited to continually learn and self-improve, both as an engineer and as a person.
  • You have the ability to be scrappy and contribute across the stack (web, backend, and infrastructure). You are comfortable beginning with a rough feature concept and defining requirements collaboratively with non-engineering colleagues.
  • You are excited to get in on the ground-floor of a growing startup, to help us define and grow our culture and team.
  • A background in healthcare is not required (though definitely a plus!).
  • A sincere desire to share our mission of empowering patients is a must.

If our mission resonates with you, but you only match some of these attributes, we hope you apply regardless. We are committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace, and enthusiastically encourage people from historically underrepresented groups in tech to apply to AllStripes. We can’t wait to learn more about you!
