DevOps Engineer

Boston or remote (United States)
At Reify Health, we are building a more creative healthcare system. We envision a world where every potential therapy, if safe and effective, is available to the patients who can benefit. 

Our healthcare system relies on clinical trials to develop new, potentially life-saving treatments for patients. But clinical trials continue to be slow, unpredictable, and expensive. Reify Health’s product helps both the research leaders driving forward clinical trials and the doctors and nurses who care for the patient participants. As we continue scaling the adoption of our product, we accelerate world-class clinical research and unlock innovation. 

We are looking for an energetic person with five or more years of relevant, hands on experience to join our DevOps Engineering team. Here at Reify, you will help deliver Production ready code in a secure and automated way. You will ensure that our systems are online, available, and fault tolerant. And you will be part of a growing team of people who share our core values of respect and empathy.
