Senior Backend Engineer


🔎 Vital is looking for a passionate senior engineer to join us on our mission to revolutionise how healthcare is delivered today.

💻 Vital is an API for at-home health data, and we are making it easy for developers to build virtual-first healthcare apps on top of our platform. We have built a wearables API and at-home test kit API and our current docs can be found at

🚀 We are a seed-funded startup backed by some of the best investors like Y Combinator.

🌍 This is a fully remote position. However, you must be able to provide at least 4 hours of business overlap with GMT. We are not offering any visa sponsorships at this time.

💪🏽 Some of the early challenges you could be working on:

  • Reverse engineering API’s for wearables/medical devices.
  • Building a scalable fault-tolerant backend that can handle large amounts of data and the complexity of 50+ 3rd party API integrations.
  • Building direct integrations to wearable devices and at-home remote patient monitoring devices.
  • Building pipelines to scale dealing with the legacy labs, i.e. email ordering and scraping

👾 Our Tech Stack

  • Python(Fast API), Typescript, React, React Native, Swift, GCP

📌 You’ll be a good fit if…

  • You like to wear many hats. We are a small team, with a lot of things yet to be figured out. You are comfortable operating in such an environment.
  • You have experience with FHIR and building APIs in digital health.
  • You are persistent and don’t give up easily. A lot of times it’s unclear how to reverse engineer some of the clients we integrate with and we will require a lot of patience and out-of-the-box thinking.
  • You care about the outcomes, rather than outputs.
  • You’re open to working in different tech stacks and jumping to frontend when needed.
