For the World
Backend Engineer (NOVID)$80k – $100k
Join the most advanced anti-COVID app in the world, and save the USA!
On March 16, a crack team of designers, engineers, mathematicians, and algorithmists rallied together to stop COVID before it consumes our country and world.
The result is NOVID, which now holds the solitary status of being the only app in the world which demonstrates the accuracy required for contact tracing. It has also been the only anonymous contact tracing app in the USA for 2 months. Adopted at scale, it can stop the spread of COVID right now.
This was achieved through two patent-pending innovations:
- Ultrasonic phone-to-phone distance measurement that sees through obstacles. This is a fundamentally different technology than all other contact tracing apps based on inaccurate Bluetooth.
- Early Warning of an incoming COVID wave using efficient graph theory algorithms. This is a paradigm shift from traditional contact tracing. Early Warning lets you anonymously watch COVID approach from far away in your relationship network and avoid it, like an animated weather radar. It puts you in control.
NOVID’s founder is an internationally recognized mathematician who is also a CMU math professor and the National Coach of the USA Math Olympiad team. The NOVID team is mission-driven, extremely capable, and works with high intensity. Due to NOVID’s status as the world’s leading anti-COVID app, there is exploding external interest in adopting NOVID as a solution. We are seeking similarly intense people to grow our team.
Our servers are designed to handle population-scale loads, efficiently using appropriate resources to deliver performance. We seek backend engineers who are experienced with Python and AWS technologies.
NOVID runs at faster-than-startup speed. Ideal team members have wide technical range and learn quickly, with deep commitment to the urgent mission.
To our knowledge, NOVID is the only remaining active project in the USA which has the potential of controlling the COVID pandemic in the near term. Join us on this historic mission!
