Sitka · May 4th 2020
COVID-19: telehealth is now a necessity and our platform and services are helping medical providers adapt. As such, Sitka is experiencing a surge in demand and continuing to scale the team.
Sitka provides doctors and patients on-demand access to our network of specialists through our unique technology platform. With Sitka, patients receive personalized video reviews of their medical data from experts. Our platform allows patients and their doctors to consult with specialists easily and quickly, usually with turnarounds of hours instead of weeks.
We believe meaningful improvement in medicine requires new systems enabling convenient, conversational workflows between patients and their physicians, not tedious and documentation-heavy processes. As such, we integrate our platform deeply into complicated health systems so that providers can leverage our specialists easily and make better clinical decisions over video.
As a small, fully-remote startup, there are no big-company cog-in-the-machine roles. Everything and everyone matters, so we hire with that in mind. We value diversity, not just because building services for diverse populations requires a diverse team, but because we personally feel it’s the right thing to do.
About the job
Sitka engineers progressively bring order to the chaos of medicine. We work closely with our clinical practitioners and patients, rapidly iterating on the product and workflow to solve real problems in real clinics.
The platform we build serves patient, primary care, and specialist workflows in friendly-yet-compliant ways while providing robust tools around synchronous and asynchronous video and annotation. Sitka is a modern API-based web application — we use React to build our user-facing front-end, Python for our back-end web services, and we deploy containerized services to AWS.
You’d report to the CTO on a fully-remote team with tremendous flexibility to define the shape of the product, technical architecture and company itself. As an early engineer, you will be a critical member of the team, with your work directly affecting the success or failure of the company. The scope of your potential impact is limited only by your ambition and ability to get things done.
