Audere, a 501(c)(3) public charity, is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to build free software that improves global health. We create computer vision algorithms to improve the automated interpretation of rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) so that more people are treated correctly & quickly in low- and middle-income countries. We're prioritizing work on COVID, malaria, and HIV.
We are looking for Seattle-based candidates only. During COVID, we work exclusively from home — but we anticipate returning to our Seattle offices once widespread vaccination is achieved.
Our initiative, called OpenRDT, is described here: https://tinyurl.com/openrdt
We have several computer vision models built on iOS and Android phones to detect, capture, and interpret RDTs. Our accuracy rates already exceed those of trained professionals interpreting the same RDTs. We're now also scaling out the backend on AWS to handle COVID testing nationwide for several countries, including the US.
We're a small startup where everyone is hands-on in the code. Your day-to-day job will include technical design, collaborating with our team, coding, and meeting with customers & partners. We've already launched in US, Australia, Nigeria, and Kenya, and expect to launch in South Africa as well as India in 2021.
The median experience on our team of twenty is 24 years each in industry, all from FAANG and major brands, so we're serious software engineers. We're looking for a great hands-on manager who's experienced in backend and ML products.
- Extensive experience in backend and ML software
- BA/BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience. Lack of degree is fine if you code like a genius.
- 10+ years of relevant work experience, including engineering management experience
- Facility in cranking out production quality code at a fast pace
- Collaborative work style that's open to discussion, idea sharing, and feedback
- A strong interest in bettering the world
- Knowledge of computer vision optimization strategies
- Experience working in flexible, results-oriented startup environments
- A great sense of humor
Our software is built in React & React Native on the front end, with Node.js and AWS on the backend.
We have full medical, dental, and vision benefits, along with a 401(k) plan with matching benefits. We also offer flexible work hours, including part-time options, for candidates who prefer or need those accommodations. Lastly, Audere is a group of really sharp engineers who love to have a laugh and to solve meaningful world problems by applying the latest technology.
Join us if you'd like the opportunity to significantly improve lives worldwide!
