We are looking for a software engineering leader who is passionate about creating next-generation healthcare software solutions that will dramatically impact the lives of patients, clinicians, and caregivers. This person will have the opportunity to lead a team through early stages of product development, while contributing some code of their own and continuing to grow their own skill set. This role will be focused on helping to build Tendo’s Integration and transformation component; a critical component that sits between the Tendo applications, the EMR integration layer, and Health System EMRs.
The ideal candidate will have strong understanding and exposure to full stack SaaS and/or Cloud Native technology for a regulated industry. The Principal Software Engineer should enjoy working in a collaborative environment with product managers, designers, external partners, and other engineers to build a great product from the ground up, employing Agile practices and processes—including Test/Behavior Driven Development—to deliver quality code to completion. Sharing knowledge and mentoring members of a growing team will be key.
