SNOMED International is hiring a senior back-end Java Engineer, joining the all-remote team developing open source products that provide the universal language of healthcare globally.
Our software products ultimately benefit quality of life for the millions of people whose healthcare service provision relies upon the accurate, standardised, medical vocabulary of SNOMED CT and its ecosystem of tools; https://github.com/IHTSDO. SNOMED CT is underpinning COVID-19 research within the UK’s NHS for example, and for institutes and providers around the world.
We offer a worthwhile and rewarding challenge, advancing this mature technology standard and its associated web tooling for the global application of health data. We work at the forefront of knowledge representation, variously utilising description logic, linked data, semantic web and JSON based approaches – all of which you may learn with us.
You’ll be joining us during a moment of finding improvements, making enhancements and refactoring, with ample scope to explore better ways of delivering what our users need. We’re also midway through our five year strategy of delivering SNOMED CT as a service, and your work will be instrumental in delivering and building upon this. This may entail applying your skills across our distributed applications, ontology management tools, data visualisations and web browser solutions, as well as how we do things and the technologies we use.
We’ll be pleased to explore where this may lead.
