Who We Need:

SwipeSense is building the connected hospital platform of the future. As a senior front-end engineer, you will be creating products that use insights from our platform to create real change in organizations through compelling and delightful interfaces and experiences. Our product is change - and this starts with the experiences you will be creating!

As a senior engineer in our organization, you will be working with the entire engineering team (firmware engineering, back-end engineering, data science, etc) to create these products and experiences. Your ability to work well in cross-functional teams is critical and your ability to inspire is essential to making the best products possible. You will also be helping make architecture and design-level decisions that will have a direct impact on our workflows and standards as a company.

At SwipeSense, we like to live on the bleeding edge – we are always questioning and rebuilding core components of our platform to meet the scaling demands of the future. As a member of a small team, your ideas will carry weight; you should have strong opinions around what you’re building and how it’s being built. Most importantly, as we are a startup, you must be comfortable balancing business needs and time-to-market, and make tradeoffs where appropriate.

  • JavaScript - Expert with modern web practices (ES 2016, React, Relay, GraphQL)
  • Experience developing/managing state in a real time, collaborative web application.
  • Experience with data visualization and analytics libraries (D3, etc)
  • Be able to communicate technical feasibility and practicality in UI/UX designs.
  • Experience creating, consuming, and documenting GraphQL services and architecture.
  • Experience with Continuous Integration and/or Continuous Delivery.

  • Familiarity with AWS as a platform along with its various services.


  • Minimum 5+ years of related full-time experience.
  • Bachelors in Computer Science or Computer Engineering or equivalent experience.
  • A focus on consistent code style, full-coverage testing, team coding conventions, and separation of concerns.
