Job Details

DescriptionAt Touch Surgery, we're on a mission to positively impact lives around the world. We are improving surgical outcomes for patients by building software that pushes the boundaries of surgical care. The digital tools we build will help healthcare systems improve training, reduce errors, and decrease the cost of medical care. They help individual surgeons get direct feedback on their performance.

Digital Surgery is accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons England to award CPD points for cognitive rehearsal and case reflection using Digital Surgery's Touch Surgery mobile and web platform. This marks the first time that the RCS has offered centre accreditation to a mobile-based simulation platform in its 500+ year history.

We have mobile and web applications. As well as hardware that goes into the operating room. Tying all of this together is a platform for serving educational simulation content and processing surgical video using ml models. We are looking for senior team members to help us build and improve this platform which is written in Python and built on top of AWS. Our working environment is sane and highly automated. We test things thoroughly and can deploy to any one of our isolated environments with a click.

Because of the nature of the data that we process we care deeply about the security and privacy of it. The people that we're looking to hire need to as well.

RequirementsWe are looking for people with:
  • Experience building platforms on top of AWS.
  • An excellent grasp of their programming language of choice, and a willingness to learn Python if that's not already it.
  • Opinions and ideas on how to build a great engineering function, and a willingness to help us with that. You can read about some work we have done on that here:
  • An understanding and appreciation of security issues

You would be joining a 7 person platform team, that is part of a 30 person engineering organisation. We are looking for people with direct experience. For the right person this might be Staff Engineer / Principal grade.

BenefitsPrivate healthcare cash plan (including dental), pension scheme, life cover, 25 days' holiday (increases with service), season ticket travel loan, cycle to work scheme, cash for referring a friend to come work here and even more on the way!

As part of our Family Friendly policies, we also encourage flexible working so you choose when you start and finish. Working from home is also possible thanks to the shiny new MacBook Pro laptops we supply. Although some people run Linux if they need to. Slack is one of our collaboration tools to help share information on what our teams are doing. You could even join the #coffee_buddies Slack channel to be matched up with someone for a face to face coffee.

So what's it like working at Digital Surgery?We have over 100 people globally across the UK, US, Canada and Middle East. The majority are based in our London HQ in Old Street. The company is made up of several teams covering Engineering, Product, Studio, Innovation, Marketing, HR, Operations, Finance and Sales. We care about our employees' career and development, offering training internally as well as external courses and attending global conferences. We believe that helping you grow will help our company grow too.

We have our Family Meeting on Friday afternoons with beer, wine and cold drinks - it's a great chance to meet new joiners, share success stories and hear what's been going on in the company that week.

The OfficeWe have a really open plan office, think New York loft style with break out areas, sofas as well as more formal meeting rooms when you need some privacy. Open kitchen full of healthy snacks, naughty biscuits, tea, Nespresso coffee machines - we also provide breakfast every day for everyone. Ooh, and dogs. Bring your dog to work if you want. One of the Co-Founders has 2 dogs, (named after batman characters) but they're not on payroll !
