Syapse Inc -- Palo Alto & Philadelphia, PA

You can build advertising networks, make tools for financial institutions, help retailers target buyers...the options are endless. But are you excited by any of these choices?

There is another option: you could be a part of a team helping to cure cancer, stop heart disease, and deliver the right drugs to the right people at the right time with software for Precision Medicine.

Syapse software helps healthcare providers use next-generation genomic and molecular data, in context with complex clinical data (medical history, treatment, outcomes, cost, etc.) spread across multiple systems, to make the best decisions regarding patient care.

See here for all the open positions: http://syapse.com/about/careers/

I'm especially looking to hire Customer Solutions Engineers for the Philly office (http://syapse.com/about/careers/openings/?gh_jid=32512). So if you're on the East Coast and always wanted to join a Bay Area startup, but didn't want to relocate, now is your chance! We're especially interested in people with Python experience. Any experience with healthcare, electronic health records, or genomics is a bonus.

Boston, MA | Android Developer | Fulltime

CoachUp connects coaches and athletes for 1-on-1 private lessons. (Think airbnb for private sports coaching.) We're a venture-backed startup that's been around for about 3 years now. We went through TechStars and MassChallenge. You'll probably find your typical startup culture and whatnot here, but I guess one differentiating perk is you get to meet professional athletes from time to time. Julian Edelman of the Patriots came by one day, as did Nerlens Noel of the Philadelphia 76ers, and others are upcoming.

We're looking for a full time Android dev to take over our Android app. Our backend is Ruby on Rails, and depending on comfort and desire you could work on the API side of things, too.

Hit me up for more info: gabe@coachup.com.

Way to Health, University of Pennsylvania - Philadelphia, PA Chronic illness and the decisions people make and act upon – from their activity level to taking medications or smoking – drive the vast majority of the $3 Trillion in US healthcare costs. Our team has achieved breakthrough results in changing the behaviors that determine health outcomes, such as doubling adherence to medications that keep people healthy and out of the hospital, and establishing new insights into patient engagement. These results were enabled by the Way To Health platform, a unique technology asset now poised to move beyond research into broader clinical applications. The role we’re looking to fill is critical to expanding our impact. We need someone who can not only work with our team of internationally recognized thought leaders to identify and implement functionality and designs making interventions more effective, but also has the ability to evolve Way to Health into a scalable clinical platform that can be deployed efficiently in larger populations. The Way to Health developer role offers the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in patients’ lives and their health outcomes. This role also affords the right candidate a great deal of autonomy in both how you do your work and in crafting a vision for the technology. We’re looking for team members who love problem solving and finding better ways to get things done. Specific responsibilities include: * Collaborating with faculty to translate cutting edge research protocols into functionality for patient engagement and behavior change * Developing new features for individual interventions and for the platform * Working with the development team to iteratively determine the best way to meet project goals in a timely, robust and scalable manner * Crafting architectural approaches to drive down the cost of feature development and deployment * Designing new methods of information delivery and display for increased patient comprehension and response * Diagnosing reported issues, identifying the source of problems, determining the best path to resolution and implementing fixes * Evolving and supporting QA processes, writing automated unit and functional tests for new features, documenting work clearly, and finding ways to continuously improve quality * Participating in an agile development process (we use a modified version of Scrum) * Working with infrastructure providers to plan for future needs and ensure timely, efficient and reliable delivery Older tech stack is symfony/PHP/mysql, but we're migrating more and more to our node/mongo stack.
