Senior Software Engineer

We are hiring an experienced software engineer with primarily a backend focus to help us expand our application and infrastructure, scale up to more customers, and build out new applications, data pipelines, and tools. This position will have lots of responsibility for making architectural decisions that will impact the course of the company.

This position will involve the following types of work on a day to day basis:

  • Architect and implement new functionality in our web application, including intelligent features powered by our rich and unique data set – our stack is AWS/PostgreSQL/Go/GraphQL/React, with a little bit of Python (because there’s always a little bit of Python)
  • Own the project – you’ll make lots of database and architectural decisions, and have a lot of responsibility over how we build out our applications and development processes
  • Find, suggest, and implement better ways of structuring code or architecting solutions
  • Integrate new types of data sources to enrich our data set and spark new capabilities for our users
  • Make your own work life better and continue to expand your own skill set: we include developer-driven initiatives in sprints, and we also build in non-sprint days to explore new ideas and clean up annoying messes
  • Work directly with the rest of the company: at OrbitalRX, we believe the best products are built by engineers who understand the domain they’re building for. You’ll learn a lot about hospital operations and the bizarre-yet-captivating world of pharmaceutical data!
  • Work with the rest of the engineering team: collaborate and brainstorm on creative solutions, and provide thoughtful mentorship and constructive feedback to your teammates

Here’s a bit about some of the qualities we’re looking for:

  • You take pride in your code, and are driven to find ways to make things cleaner and more maintainable
  • You can contribute across our stack – you should know Javascript and one or two server-side languages, preferably one that’s strongly typed
  • You can understand our AWS infrastructure and think of ways to use it to build for ease of growth and scale (devops is a mindset!)
  • You’ve worked with GraphQL, or if not, you know how to build a quality API
  • You have well-formed opinions about code structure and architecture, and you’re driven to find the right way to do things within a codebase or framework
  • You have strong analytical skill and can follow the trail to dig out the root cause of a bug, identify patterns of user issues and solve them with code or architecture improvements
  • You are driven to learn and improve: while your experience gives you good instincts toward good solutions, you respect that other engineers may have differing and equally valid ideas, and you enjoy discussing, learning, and coming to consensus
  • You communicate and collaborate well and enjoy working closely with other technologists, domain experts, and users

This is a typical startup role in that there’s a little bit of everything and a lot of room to grow, and not a ton of structure. If you’re self-motivated, eager to build and own the solutions to the problems that face our users, and excited to take on challenges and opportunities that come up as the company succeeds, you will thrive with us!

Senior Product Manager

We are hiring a Senior Product Manager to lead the evolution of our product through this exciting phase, and beyond.

This position is both strategic and hands-on. You’ll have daily insight and input into company strategy and leadership, and you’ll also meet regularly with customers, write requirements and create wireframes, and when we’re ready, build out the product management and design teams. This position is a critical one with broad responsibilities, and immense potential for learning and growth.

Day-to-day will look like this:

  • Meet with customers to get feedback and ideas, and present new functionality
  • Manage the roadmap of product capabilities: get input and buy-in from stakeholders, communicate status and changes in the roadmap, and coordinate with the rest of the team on pushing initiatives forward
  • Write product briefs to assess the priority and viability of capabilities, requirements, user stories, acceptance criteria, user documentation, and more. We use Confluence to maintain our documentation
  • Work with the engineering team to get feedback on designs, scope sprints, determine possible blockers, and perform user acceptance testing
  • Measure team performance and feature performance against goals, and continuously improve to make our product more effective

You might be a good fit if:

  • You’ve worked in technology for 2-5 years as a Product Manager – experience with SaaS solutions is a must, and familiarity with health care technology is a big plus.
  • You have amazing communication skills and charisma, and can build consensus around a plan and get a team excited to execute on it – and you’re comfortable presenting that plan to investors and board members to illustrate how it supports the company’s overall strategy
  • You’re passionate about users – you are a design thinker; you are suspicious of ideas that haven’t been validated with real users or with supporting data
  • You can conceptualize how a technical system works so that you understand the impact that a change in one area might have in another area, and can build a plan that evolves the software along a sensible path

About OrbitalRX

OrbitalRX was founded in 2017 by health system pharmacists who got tired of not having any solutions for their big, expensive problems, and decided to build some solutions themselves. We’re a seed-stage startup in Raleigh, NC that helps hospitals and health systems deal with the very real and growing problem of drug shortages. We have a small cohort of big-name customers, and are positioned to grow that base rapidly over the next 12 months as we continue to build innovative and intelligent solutions that delight our users and result in better patient care at lower costs.

We are an equal opportunity employer and believe having diverse teams in which everyone brings their whole self to OrbitalRX is fundamental to our success. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
