Are you a web developer who is passionate about using your AngularJs, NodeJs and other skills to improve the lives of people, patients, and healthcare professionals?

Our Company

Operon is an early stage start-up planning to change the way software is developed for healthcare. We have recently secured funding from NHS Digital Code4Health and other partners to enable us to deliver our vision.

Our vision is to launch PaaS (Platform as a Service for healthcare) that will open up healthcare market to app developers – think Heroku for healthcare! The components of our PaaS are based on proven international standards and are currently in use around the world including UK, Norway, Sweden, Finland, France, Netherlands, Australia, China, Russia, and Brazil. We want to make our PaaS available to innovative developers to create software that makes a real difference to the way healthcare is delivered. Our long-term ambition is to leverage our platform to build a   healthcare app ecosystem that will augment and eventually compete with current incumbents.

Our team

We are an experienced team of clinicians and health technologists with a track record of commercial success. Some of our team are internationally recognised experts in healthcare IT and have been involved in healthcare projects within the UK and across the world.

The Company operates virtually and while these roles are based at our Central London workspace at Runway East Finsbury Square in East London alongside a number of other tech start-ups there are plenty of opportunities for flexible and remote working.

  • You will also play a role in the design and delivery of our documentation and other support materials for our PaaS.

You will be a team player with a willingness to lend a hand with any aspect of the Company’s activity in addition to the core task of software development. You will able to work with minimal supervision and bring their own ideas and expertise to our venture. There will be an opportunity to work with the health informatics community which includes many enthusiastic clinicians and innovative developers wanting to disrupt the way IT is delivered in healthcare

  • API design and frameworks (tyk, swagger)
  • Identity management/single-sign-on (Auth0, KeyCloak)
