About the role:

Octave is looking for a senior backend engineer to help us develop the systems and tools needed to support clients seeking care, providers offering care, and the operational team and infrastructure to support the two. We are a small but growing team who work primarily remotely, using Next.js (React), Django on PostgreSQL, and GraphQL to bring everything together.


Must have:

  • Experience developing and deploying Python applications into production environments using Django
  • Familiarity with modern web technologies (such as JSON, HTTP2, WebSockets, HTML, JavaScript, CSS)
  • Experience relational database systems like PostgreSQL or MySQL
  • Experience integrating and synchronizing data with third-party APIs
  • A preference for writing quality code with automated testing and leaving the codebase better than how you found it
  • Experience with continuous delivery and troubleshooting production code
  • Comfortable communicating with engineers, clinical, and operations staff to solve open-ended problems
  • Interest in doing mission-oriented work, especially in the healthcare space
  • Must be eligible to work in the United States without sponsorship now or anytime in the future

Nice to have:

  • Experience with infrastructure-as-code & continuous deployment in production
  • Maintained security initiatives such as penetration testing or bug bounty programs
  • Experience working with healthcare, healthcare technology, clinical staff, or other regulated industries
  • "Nice to have" really means "nice to have". It's completely possible that you don't have any of these and are still a great fit for the team.
