  • Support and troubleshoot software and system configurations for internal stakeholders.


  • Bachelor of Science in an engineering, scientific or technical field, or equivalent experience.
  • 0+ years of work experience in software development or a related field. 

In addition to these requirements, the candidate would ideally have the following skills:

  • PowerShell, C#
  • Software configuration implementation
  • Windows OS experience
  • Basic software engineering skills (source code control, build systems, installers, OS scripting, etc.)
  • Experience with defect tracking systems and root cause analysis
  • IT/IS experience
  • Cybersecurity in healthcare

Here’s what our software development team members have to say about working here:

  • “No politics or drama, everyone wants to help one another and for them to grow.”
  • “Having a work place that people want to show up to in the morning.”
  • “The work is not only challenging but we get to help develop a product that can make a difference in people’s lives.”
  • “I feel relaxed yet driven, and it seems quite rare to find work environments that induce both of these feelings. “
  • “The management trusts us as a team to develop quality software without micromanaging.”
  • “The group values quality over quantity and speed.”
  • “I am able to work with web or desktop application development, with customer facing or internal software, with coworkers with marketing, engineering, and chemistry disciplines, and with a constantly evolving project list. 
  • “There is always an emphasis on writing good, clean, maintainable code and collaborating with your teammates and others to solve problems. “
  • “We aren’t as obsessed with the process so much as the result. The process with which we develop software is more flexible than other places I’ve worked but the end result that we strive towards is the same – to have clean, readable code.”
