In addition, you will be responsible for designing, developing, and maintaining Simprints applications and their integrations, both with our internal back-end services and external data collection applications.

You will work on an agile, collaborative team with a commitment to clean code and robust design, along with a strong culture of continuous learning and improvement. You will help the project management team assess feature feasibility and create a plan of action. If building technology for global health sounds exciting, we want to meet you!
