Did you know that 1 in 5 women suffer from a hormonal disorder called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and that 87% of these women experience a lack of education, guidance and treatment from Swedish healthcare?
Ovulai is an early-stage startup, providing digital self-help programs to relieve chronic gynecological conditions, starting with PCOS. We recently launched the first version of our app to the public and it’s now time to listen, learn and iterate to move beyond the minimum viable product toward a truly sticky and lovable product. In other words, we have just gotten started and this is the perfect opportunity to join our team during a really exciting part of the startup journey!
About the role
We are looking for an additional software developer who is passionate about working at a social impact startup and digitalizing healthcare. Given the early stage of the company, you will get the opportunity to have a large impact and influence everything from technical decisions to product direction and company values. You will work closely with and complement the CTO who has a background as a senior backend developer from both well-established companies such as Spotify and early-stage startups. Based on results from experiments, user interviews and usage data, you will be working on implementing new features and functionality in our web-based app. As a medical tech startup, we're combining a fast-paced, experiment-driven approach with a quality mindset and always strive to find pragmatic trade-offs between the two.
We are a Stockholm-based team and work partly remotely but spend a couple of days a week in our shared office space to meet up with teammates, our business coaches and other inspiring startups.
Who you are
We believe that you have worked as a software developer professionally for some years but are longing to contribute to something more meaningful. Additionally, you are probably passionate about having a significant impact on the direction of the product and the technical roadmap.
Since you will be working with all parts of our cross-platform app, you should feel comfortable working with technologies such as HTML/CSS, TypeScript, React.js, Node.js, databases and AWS or some alternatives to these technologies. The most important thing is, however, not what exact tools and technologies you have worked with in the past, but that you are not hesitant to learn whatever is needed to solve the problem at hand and that you have the practical knowledge to be able to find out how. On top of these technical skills, it's good if you have an eye for what’s visually pleasing and are comfortable making small design decisions on your own based on existing UI frameworks.
As the team player you are, you enjoy collaboration and brainstorming but are also able to work independently and structure your own work. You are a great communicator in either Swedish or English who can explain technical concepts to non-technical colleagues and can turn disagreements into constructive discussions. During the startup journey, your role will gradually grow into having more and more responsibility by coaching junior developers, project lead contractors and taking important architecture decisions.
If this sounds interesting, apply by attaching your resume or link to your LinkedIn profile and do not hesitate to reach out to our CTO, Sandra, if you have any questions.
