At accuRx, we're on a mission to bring patients and their healthcare teams together.
Who are accuRx?
At accuRx, we're building a world-famous healthcare communication platform. Our mission is simple - to change lives by bringing patients and their healthcare teams together. Our technology is revolutionising how technology is adopted and how care is delivered in healthcare.
Established in 2016 and now with £9m in Series A funding, accuRx is one of the UK's fastest-growing tech startups. In two years, we grew from only a few GP practices using us to over 50% of practices in England. Today, over 95% of GP practices rely on us to communicate with their patients. We've just launched in hospitals and are already used by over 15% of hospitals in England. Our vision is that anyone involved in a patient's care can communicate with each other.
In response to COVID-19, we spent March and April working tirelessly to release new features to help frontline staff. This includes a video consultation solution that went from zero to 35,000 daily consultations in the space of 8 weeks.
Unlike many healthtech companies, we are a software provider, not a healthcare provider. We allow existing health and care systems (starting with the NHS in the UK) to deliver technology-enabled care, free from any AI/Blockchain-hype.
Life as Senior Engineering Manager at accuRx
As our first Senior Engineering Manager, you'll work closely with our CTO and VP Engineering to create an environment for other Product Engineers to thrive and grow at accuRx. This breaks down into some key areas:
Delivering high quality 1:1s: We have a growing engineering team and want to make sure everyone has great quality weekly 1:1s - whether you're there to mentor, coach or just listen to someone's worries.
Learning and development: You'll help us ensure that engineers feel challenged, that they can learn both on and off the job effectively and there's a mixture of planned learning (like masterclasses/lightning talks) and day to day learning (code reviews, pair programming.
Onboarding: Getting up to speed in new codebases in new industries can be really hard at the best of times. You'll help us support people from moment of signing through to their successful probation so they start shipping code that affects millions fast.
Performance and progression: Whilst we have performance reviews every 6 months, we know that as we grow the team will need a more formal progression framework to support different career moves. You'll help us craft this and check it meets the needs of all our Engineers and our standards on diversity and inclusion.
Engineering management culture: Building a brilliant management function at accuRx has always been something close to our hearts, and engineering is no different. You'll help us take the accuRx values and instil them into everything we do as Engineers.
Interviewing: Scaling up and out our interview process so we can continue to attract a diverse talent pool is crucial. You'll help us build out a repeatable interview framework to support the hiring of the next 100 engineers into the business.
