Neko Health is a Swedish health-tech company co-founded in 2018 by Hjalmar Nilsonne and Daniel Ek. Our vision is to create a healthcare system that can help people stay healthy through preventive measures and early detection. Neko has developed a new medical scanning technology concept to make it possible to do broad and non-invasive health data collection that is both convenient and affordable for the public. This requires completely reimagining the healthcare experience and incorporating the latest advances in sensors and AI. We are a remote first company, but the company is based in Stockholm and has almost 100 employees across Europe.

Join Neko Health as a Senior Frontend Engineer and impact the health-tech industry from a unique, cutting-edge perspective! We are seeking a creative and skilled professional to contribute to our ambitious projects in establishing best in class medical device Quality Management System.  

About the role   

We are looking for an experienced, creative, and technically proficient front-end developer to join our front-end team. As a front-end developer at Neko you will work on our member web application for desktop and mobile, which members use to book visits and look at results from their visit as well as interact with the doctors. Among other things, you’ll also work on our doctor web application which our medical staff use to prepare for and perform the visit. 

You will work closely with the backend developers, device developers and medical personnel to develop applications for internal and external use; and assist the medical and technical stakeholders to set priorities and guide implementation details. 

Our front ends are written in React and TypeScript, and our backend is written in C#.

Requirements:

    • A broad background in software engineering with experience in several front-end stacks.
    • Proven track record of project delivery and technical writing 
    • Experience with automation, infrastructure, build systems and modern testing practices. 
    • Experience developing React applications using TypeScript  
    • Exceptional analytical and problem-solving skills 
    • Effective communication and teamwork abilities, essential for our remote-first environment 
    • Experience from driving continuous improvement efforts 
    • Knowledge of C# and Python is beneficial but not a requirement 
    • It is also important that you have a flexible mindset since you will be working with different projects. 
We think that willingness and ability to learn is more important than a perfect match between your skillset and our technology stack, however, some skillset overlap will speed up the onboarding.

About the Engineering Team

Distributed and Remote First
We are 40 full time engineers at the company, working from Berlin, Chamonix, Hamburg, Lisbon, Marseille, Vilnius, and Stockholm, spanning diverse disciplines such as Hardware Engineering, Firmware Development, Electrical Design, Algorithm Development, Machine Learning Development, Optronics Research, Frontend Development and more.

Our headquarters and our hardware development team are in Stockholm, Sweden.

We are a Remote First company; however, it is of course much easier to work remotely as a software engineer than a hardware or firmware engineer (since they require access to hardware or devices occasionally). Software engineers based in Stockholm work maybe one day a week or one day every two weeks from the office.

We meet a couple of times per year to get to know each other and have fun.

Organization and Way of Working
The engineering team is divided into smaller cross functional project teams that each focus on a specific goal or target, where some groups are long-lived, and some are short-lived, depending on how big the goal or deliverable is. We strive to create groups which are cross-functional and able to complete their goals without dependence on other teams, even though this is of course not always possible.

Groups track goals on a yearly and quarterly basis with goal follow-up across the entire engineering organization on a bi-weekly basis. Most groups do internal planning on a bi-weekly basis, but in the end it's up to the group to decide how they want to work.

We have, however, mandated that all groups must present their progress or failures or hacks at our bi-weekly engineering demo, a fun meeting/presentation where we talk about everything from short-circuiting power-modules, how hard it is to calibrate cameras or align polygons in space, to neat new command line tools for operations, a new auth mechanism in the backend, a cool new way to visualize health data or a new feature which helps our doctors be more productive.

We have a flexible workplace that focuses on work/life balance, and we strongly believe in our mission but do not think that achieving it requires sacrificing everything else.
