Job Description

Backend Developer / Scale-Up / Health-Tech / Flexible Working

I have recently begun working with a fantastic London based B2C Health-Tech scale up who are currently looking to expand their technical team by 3 developers. The company were founded just over 3 years ago and have been live for around 18 months with 1000’s of current customers all reviewing the products very highly.


The company are currently going through their scale up phase and are looking to invest significantly into their technical team which currently consists of 10 developers with 5 Backend Engineers, 2 Frontend Engineers and 3 in product / management. In addition to the technical team the business is supported by a number of pharmacist and dermatologist to ensure each customer is getting an industry leading product.

Through the use of their subscription product the company are able to take 10s of variables, from medical history to local pollution into account when prescribing their products. The company manages the whole process from manufacturing to distribution meaning every batch / product is tailored to the specific customer it is for.


As a Backend Engineer you will be working alongside the current 5 engineers working on multiple existing and greenfield projects. A few examples of these are, the redevelopment of prescriber dashboards, development of internal billing systems, 3rd party API integrations and medical records storage projects. In addition to new projects, you will also be contributing to the constant development of architecture and internal systems to ensure all systems run optimally as they scale with the business.

In addition to their web development teams there are multiple warehouse projects with a separate team of two engineers developing tools for interfacing with the physical machines being used in the whole process. Whilst these are separate project to this team, there is the possibility of working on business-critical tech. Additionally the business prides themselves on being environmentally sustainable and are always investing into R&D on how they can continually improve their products.
