As a senior backend engineer at Ronin, you will be working closely with people across engineering, product, and design to build systems and experiences to solve challenges in cancer care. You have expert knowledge of modern web applications and have worked with languages and frameworks such as Java/Kotlin and Spring Boot. You also have expert knowledge of backend frameworks enabling REST based services oriented design.  As someone who can code and architect the backend service systems, practice thoughtful code reviews, and provide mentorship to other engineers, you have the desire and experience to share knowledge with others.

You follow engineering best practices when creating software and you enjoy working collaboratively with other smart but humble engineers in an environment where you feel safe to experiment and innovate. You want to work on a product that has a positive impact on cancer patients’ lives.

We are a mission-driven startup that is creating change for people impacted by cancer. We’re developing an intelligence platform that provides all the information physicians need, in one place, to assess patient care options and take action. We are passionate about achieving our mission and each others’ success. 

We’re ready to make an impact on a 147.3 billion dollar industry. Will you join us?

Here’s the typical day to day for our backend engineers:

    • Collaborate with our product management and design teams to understand customer pain points, come up with solutions that will ultimately better the lives of Patients, Oncologists, and supporting care teams.
    • Define, develop, test, document and deploy easy to understand and secure backend service APIs to enable the creation of web application features.
    • Design and implement secure and fault tolerant systems to handle large amounts of health data using container based technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes.
    • Tackle a wide variety of technical problems throughout the stack and contribute daily to all parts of our product code base as well as our overall quality engineering processes.

Project Rōnin is filling one of the greatest gaps in patient care to date. Our mission is to increase the length and quality of every persons’ life who has been affected by cancer.
