We’re Hiring!


  • Healthcare tech startup based in EU (Amsterdam) and US (Los Angeles)
  • SaaS company that provides clinical decision support for doctors and nurses based on latest medical research
  • Looking for backend and mobile developers to build serverless microservices architecture in Python and native Swift iOS / Kotlin Android mobile apps
  • EU citizens on payroll only, no external contractors/outsourcing, visa sponsorships not available for this position

DEARhealth in a Nutshell

Clinical knowledge continues to grow exponentially. An increasing number of data points must be weighed when deciding how to best manage the care of patients. We want to help doctors and nurses keep up, providing clinical decision support in the shape of recommended care pathways (a set timeline e.g. 12 months of planned care activities) based on patient and disease characteristics monitored continuously throughout a patient’s care. This allows doctors and nurses to proactively weigh these data and avoid bad health outcomes like hospitalizations, rather than reactively after the fact. Especially for chronic diseases, where patients must live with ongoing health risks, we want to mitigate those risks by improving experiences and outcomes based on the latest clinical expertise.

Our DEARhealth concept of clinical decision support has already proven its value to healthcare systems in the US. In 2020 we went live in the first hospital in the Netherlands. Many more are waiting to follow.

Working at DEARhealth

With our unique combination of care pathway technology and recommendations in the healthcare context, each moment brings new grounds to discover and challenges to tackle. If you’re up for an adventure, you’re in the right place.

We’re looking forward to growing our diverse global team, currently consisting of about 15 people split between the EU (Amsterdam) and US (Los Angeles) offices, with our main Engineering focus in the EU. We have strong domain knowledge in several medically trained team members including our founder/CEO.

We’re a flat organization where we encourage everyone to speak up and contribute their ideas openly. As the engineering team in an innovative startup, we are free to pick and choose technologies that offer the best solutions for our product. Currently we are implementing a new distributed architecture and user interface, making our platform even more scalable and robust.

In current COVID-19 pandemic times, the entire DEAR team is working remote-only. Remote remains OK; some onsite meetings (once to twice a week) at our Amsterdam office required once COVID restrictions allow. As such, all applicants should be able to commute to the Amsterdam office in the future. Visa sponsorships are not available for this position, therefore all applicants should additionally have EU citizenship (no external contractors or outsourcing).

Perks / benefits:

  • We offer an employee equity plan and holiday allowance.
  • Each engineer can use the latest MacBook Pro and has a budget for peripherals.
  • Outside of meetings and standup, engineers are flexible to distribute their working hours throughout the week.
  • After lockdown restrictions have eased, we will remain flexible and work from home part of the time
  • We allow team members to spend 10% of their time on personal development, e.g. by following courses or doing side-projects.
