More about the role
Redesign is launching a men's health business looking for a Back-End Engineer to join the initial stages of a DTC vertically integrated healthcare company leveraging modern technology practices to enhance the patient experience. As an early employee, you’ll have the chance to define and work on the foundational elements of the company and work closely with the founding team.

The ideal candidate is passionate about creating a seamless customer experience and is able to drive and execute end-to-end web based customer journeys. You will plan, architect, build and own our main our backend/microservices using Python, SQLAlchemy, Flask, Node.js, PostgreSQL, GraphQL and AWS.

  • Develop technology that bridges the physical and digital worlds of healthcare, for example:
    • APIs which algorithmically optimize and improve patient appointment show rates
    • Services which boost patient adherence and care quality through reminders, training and digital engagement
  • Drive better patient outcomes through data, for example:
    • Evolving and developing our data model for scale-ably recording patient data and enabling cross-patient research, analysis, and compliance
    • Developing permissioning layers which balance customer experience and team agility with security (we’re HIPAA compliant!)


  • B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent.
  • 3-5+ Years of experience working as a Software Engineer
  • Experience with Python
  • Deep understanding of the "behind-the-scenes" of Python how to run scalable web applications
  • Deep understanding of core modern web service concepts such as API design and data modelling

Bonus points for:

  • Experience in GraphQL
  • Experience with Object Oriented Design and languages such as Java, .Net or C/C++.
  • SqlAlchemy, and Flask in a production environment
  • Experience in the healthcare space and startup environment.

What's something quirky about your company?
