Full-Stack Engineer

Picnic’s mission is to structure the world’s medical data to make it useful. We work directly with patients to collect, digitize,and manage their complete medical records, giving them with control over their care through a personal health timeline. We also partner with biotech, genomics, and pharma companies who sponsor PicnicHealth accounts for research volunteers. Through this work we’re building the data sets that power some of today’s most cutting edge medical research. We’re going through a crazy period of 20x growth this year, coming off our recent Grand Prize finish in Google Cloud’s Machine Learning Startup Competition.

Most engineers at Picnic are full-stack engineers. On our team, you’d own features end-to-end, from planning out and structuring data models to designing and building front-end interfaces. You’ll need to be able to think independently and operate with a high degree of autonomy, taking problems that may be poorly specified and finding the best solution. We have challenges ranging from creating new ways to visualize medical information to implementing data pipelines to improving application performance. You’ll need to be able to fearlessly tackle any challenge that gets thrown at you

Responsibilities:
  • Own features of PicnicHealth: build, deploy, iterate. You’re responsible for what you’re building, and you have creative control over the direction you take 
  • Ship code to production frequently, often daily
  • Work at all levels of the stack — infrastructure (GCP, Kubernetes), database (PostgreSQL, Redis, ElasticSearch), services (Node, Python, Celery, TensorFlow, Keras), and frontend (React, Redux)
  • Architect efficient and reusable systems
  • Work with engineering, design, operations, and business teams to create new and compelling user-facing features

A candidate must have:
  • B.S. in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent experience
  • Foundation in computer science, with competencies in data structures, algorithms, and software design
  • Shipped code for 3+ years
  • Ability to code on the client and the server for web platforms

The ideal candidate:
  • Is fluent in the React development ecosystem 
  • Enjoys designing interfaces almost as much as building them
  • Is excited by machine learning and its implications for user interfaces
  • Enjoys kicking ass and saving lives
