Backend Developer (PHP) in VAS Business Unit

Scroll to content

Are you a Backend developer (PHP)  and do you want to be part of developing the next generation of healthcare software? Does it sound interesting to be part of a growing company, which was founded in 2014 and now has more than 170 employees in Scandinavia? Does a youthful environment with many social activities, hackathons and good educational possibilities sound interesting?

PatientSky reduces the distance between patient and healthcare provider, through a palette of communication tools, mobile apps and web applications. Our products include calendars, patient & clinic communication, journal, medication etc., and we are looking for talented people who will help us build the next generation of products that will build on (1) structured information, (2) bringing practitioners and patients closer together and (3) facilitating more transparent processes in the healthcare sector.

A quote from a developer:
Relaxed environment, freedom to approach problems at your own pace and self-discipline, this is how I would describe working at PatientSky. Working remote feels integrated in the daily, as the company has a pretty much digital identity. With an amazing office, delicious lunch and charismatic colleagues, it was a breeze to feel integrated after starting here.”  Dan R. Frontend-developer

As a backend developer at PatientSky you will be working with the PHP programming language using event sourcing and CQRS. Our applications are built via a microservice architecture, Docker and Kubernetes.
