Department: Technology

Type: Full Time

Some say the Analyte Health technology team is a myth.  Others, perhaps more enlightened, consider them legend. If you ask us, we're just a collective of humble technologists, absolutely the best at everything we do. We are looking for the next great back-end engineer to join the team -- one whose success is paramount to our own. We may make jokes about being the best, but every great engineer knows that the road to greatness is never-ending, and we offer you this opportunity to level-up your skills and your career within our challenging and fast-paced team.

Position Particulars

Analyte Health is a fast growing company that has a proven product and customers who are happy to pay for it. We are a team of smart, talented, and dedicated people that work hard to serve our patients. We are growing quickly and need to design and build the next generation of our applications to expand our offerings and build new partnerships, while transitioning our current systems to the new technologies.

We employ a variety of technologies to deliver our vision. Our code is Python. Our websites are Django, and our services are JSON over HTTP. We serve content using a mix of Apache, WSGI, memcached, MySQL, and RabbitMQ. Automated testing is an integral part of code delivery. We use open source solutions when available, and we open source our own technologies when appropriate.

How We Work

  • We believe in a collaborative and iterative approach to design the best possible solution and refine with data-driven decisions about what works most effectively.
  • We like test-driven practices with a focus on automation, dashboards, and continuous integration.
  • We love continuous deployment. We code review everything before it goes to production. When the code is ready, it goes.
  • We play, we research, and we experiment to find the best tools for the job. We’re not the type of team that rests on our laurels. We’re always looking to find ways to make things work better.
  • We believe it’s important to never stop learning, and that it is critical to encourage personal development to have a successful team. As such, we have a budget for employee education that includes but is not limited to training and attendance to annual conferences of your preference. We also have a program that encourages developers to pause any of their existing work for a day to learn something completely new.
  • We work in a laid-back, relaxed environment, with casual dress throughout the week. Schedules are flexible within reason and employees are given the option of working from home occasionally.
  • We want to make our developers as successful as possible. Developers are involved throughout the entire project lifecycle to ensure technical viability of every project, and the leadership within the technology team all have a development background as well.


  • At least 5 years in a similar role
  • Must have experience with Django
  • Experience with asynchronous queues a plus
  • Experience with SQL and relational databases (MySQL and Postgres are a plus)
  • Experience with object oriented design
  • Familiarity with the agile process a plus
  • Experience with multiple languages, different types of languages a plus
  • A demonstrated passion for improving one’s own skills and learning from others.
  • The ability to collaborate closely with clients, product owners, and other non-technical folks
  • A quality mindset, and a test-driven development habit
