Full Stack Dev Baobab

  1. 1. Ready to boldly explore new frontiers in health tech for Africa? We are looking for an experienced full-stack developer to join our growing team. Baobab Circle is a multidisciplinary team who are passionate about using tech to save lives by delivering healthcare into the hands of individuals. We are headquartered in London with operations in East Africa on a mission to use mobile technology to transform health in the same way it has revolutionized financial services with mobile banking. Baobab Circle is developing a consumer-centric mobile app to inform and track the health outcomes of people with long term illnesses like diabetes and hypertension. We will be delivering context driven content in multiple languages. The platform will also collect and analyse data on vital signs such as blood glucose, blood pressure, activity etc. Our aim is to create a positive feedback loop where our user receives personalized information about their health condition, alerts when they should seek urgent medical help as well as extra help where needed. We are currently seeking a Full Stack Developer to join our R&D team. You will help us build a fully functional content management system. Due to rapid growth and the need for a fully functioning CMS, you must be an excellent Nodejs developer and able to work seamlessly in JavaScript and CouchDB when needed. You will play an instrumental role in new product development, maintaining our current software, and bring complex problem solving skills to develop market ready software. Our CMS needs to be a system that can feed JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) into our application platform so that the end-user application can consume the data. The CMS platform (should it be capable of outputting JSON data in the format the application requires) will need to "push" the data to application for validation and publishing. The integration effort must be a combined exercise between the CMS platform and the product development (and support) engine that our software development team is providing.
