Senior Google Cloud Platform + Node.js Developer

The role

We are looking for a Senior Software Developer to work closely with our users and prospects, understand their challenges, and ship things quickly to test & learn.

  • Contribute to Product strategy

  • Deliver social impact through improved patient healthcare
