Take The InterviewOriginal Job Post

Are you a versatile frontend developer & UX designer who is obsessive about creating thoughtful software that improves someone’s day? If so, we’d love to chat with you about adding some firepower to our senior product team -- a team who is actively helping women’s health providers spend more quality time with patients by fundamentally re-imagining their daily digital workflows.

Ideally you are as eager and passionate as we are about:

  • creating thoughtful user experiences that help people (in our case doctors & nurses) make the best decisions possible while removing tedious BS from their daily workflow.
  • reducing the large amount of time that clinicians spend on documenting what they have already done (go ahead -- ask your doctor about how much they like their EHR (electronic health record) next time you’re sick)
  • re-imagining not only the traditional user experiences & workflow of EHR’s, but also the medium through which the latest medical best practices can be actionably and seamlessly incorporated into delivering care.

OK, you may not be super-passionate about these things right now (let’s face it -- medical workflows and “EHRs” sound pretty boring on paper), but you will be. Why? Because you’ll be building software that fixes *INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING* experiences for doctors. And it’s incredibly satisfying to modernize, replace & improve outdated, problematic software. It’s important. And you’ll be loved/adored for it. :)

## A Little About Us 

We’re a small-but-mighty team that recently secured our first round of venture capital financing along with a strategic partnership with the most influential voice in women’s health: the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists (ACOG).

Our mission is to remove the “digital roadblocks” that interfere with healthcare providers’ ability to spend quality time with patients (Oh and we try to help them make better decisions along the way as well).

## A Lot About You 

Ideally, you are a multitalented wunderkind who runs circles around each of the below bullet points, but let’s be real: while some of these are “must-have”, many are “wish-list”. We may have gotten a bit carried away with these, so if feel your unique combination of skills is close-ish to the mark, don’t hesitate to reach out. In fact, do so enthusiastically. 

  •’ve got a “roll up your sleeves” mentality -- there’s a lot of nitty gritty work to get done.
  • … you have “X years of experience” Pshaw. We aren’t big on formal requirements in the credentials department; rather, we want to see what you’ve worked on. Show us a project you’re proud of that you shipped and we’ll start the conversation from there.
  • … you have excellent design sensibilities and a firm grasp of HTML5 / CSS / SASS, ui toolkits like bootstrap, and probably design tools like Sketch.
  • … you’re opinionated about your design choices and can easily articulate/defend your design decisions/rationale when asked “Why did you <insert observation that challenges your design> ?”
  • … you have solid AngularJS front-end development chops. But, because you love javascript frameworks in general, you’ve played around with -- and probably are opinionated about -- other frameworks like React, Aurelia, Ember, etc.
  • should be able to design, architect & implement front-end solutions that reflect your particular problem-solving approach
  • … you’re a natural Design Thinker.
  • … you enjoy putting on your Customer Hat and being on a first-name basis with our most passionate users

## Location

## How We Interview & Hire 

Our interview process begins with an intro call to help you learn more about the role, for us to hear more about you, and to help the two of us decide if Dorsata is a mutual fit. If we move forward, the next step will be a more in depth on-site meeting

The onsite can always work around your schedule's flexibility, but we like to have you meet several key people on the team, as well as our CEO and founding team to get a flavor for who we are and how we work.

## Benefits / Perks / Comp

  • Market salary + equity participation opportunity 
  • We're pretty flexible with respect to working in the office, at home, or occasional stints in Antarctica.

  • "Kid-friendly" (2 of us have infants & toddlers -- know how that goes? So do we.) 
  • Weekly happy hour + mystery beer fridge. 
  • Cold-brew coffee keg + mega-espresso-latte-cappuccino-machine should keep you adequately caffeinated. If not, we need to talk about your coffee issue.
