Have you been through a surgery as a patient? Current post-surgery care mostly involves paper instructions and infrequent nurse calls. Patients usually do not recognize early symptoms of complications/infections, and yet healthcare providers have no visibility at the same time. Providers can only intervene when patients’ symptoms escalate into major events (i.e. ER visits, 2nd surgery). In fact, healthcare insurance paid over $41 billion for post-surgery infections and complications in one year.

KangarooHealth was born to fill the $40-billion void for post-surgery care. KangarooHealth develops an intelligent software platform to automatically measure patients’ recovery metrics, identify and predict patients at risk, and deliver post-surgery rehabilitation care, all at patients’ homes through a patient’s smartphone. It shortens patients’ risk identification windows from months to hours and improves patients’ recovery outcomes.

KangarooHealth is looking for a highly motivated and startup minded Senior Full-Stack Engineer (Front-end Focused) to join our tight-knit team to build the next unicorn in healthcare.

As a core team member, you will wear a variety of hats in order to tackle whatever challenges that may arise. You are a self-starter with a bias for action and you take ownership for your development of the product. You are passionate about technologies, love working with an innovative team of engineers in a fast-paced and technically driven environment. You never need micro-management and also love collaboration.

What You'll Get to Do:
- Join frontend engineering developing mobile and web applications in React-native, Next.js and Redux;
- Be an innovator. The products we’re building have no parallel, so you’ll spend time thinking big, but iterating quickly and shipping code continuously;
- Be a technical core member of our tech stack, developing processes for building, testing, and shipping code;
- Collaborate with our cross-functional team to build elegant, easy-to-use, and powerful products and tools;
- Review and influence ongoing software design architecture, standards and methods;
- Evaluate and benchmark new technologies that might be applied to the company's current offerings;
- Develop wireframes and prototypes working closely with UI/UX team;
- Be a technical mentor for other engineering team members;

What You Need to be Successful:
- 3+ years developing, launching, and supporting complex React-native and Redux-heavy mobile and web apps in a mission-critical production environment;
- Expertise with React-native, Redux and Next.js, and at least one modern JavaScript framework/library;
- Experience with front-end performance, monitoring, and testing;
- Passion for product design and UX is a plus;
- Excellent English communication skills to collaborate with a service-oriented team;
- Strong ability to effectively identify and solve challenging problems;
- Technical leadership, ability to manage a project end-to-end;
- Other key attributes: results-driven, and commitment to quality.

What You'll Get from KangarooHealth:
- Learning new technology and best practices both on front-end and back-end.
- The unique opportunity to join one of the hottest digital health startups to watch in 2019;
- Growth into leadership roles as you continue to grow within the team;
- Top-tier mentorship from experienced CTO and tech leaders;
- Remote working possible with flexible working hours;

What we’d love
Experience working in a dynamic startup environment;
Occasionally, you end the day with more lines of code removed than added; and that feels great.
This full-time position is in Palo Alto, CA (5 mins away from Stanford). Remote working is also cool.
If you think you’re a great fit for this role on our team, please reach out and tell us why.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!

React.js, Redux, React-native, Next.js, JavaScript, HTML5 & CSS3, Node.js
