About the role

Hello there, I’m Michael and I joined MedMe this year as the Director of Engineering! I am no stranger to scaling healthcare technology companies and I am thrilled about leading and growing our dynamic, impact-driven team. As an engineer at heart, I thrive on building modern cloud-based applications that help make healthcare better for everyone. We’re looking for two Full-Stack Engineers to join our growing team, where you will get the chance to build a modern patient care management platform on AWS using cloud-native technology. Our vision and product at MedMe have already disrupted the legacy platforms in pharmacy care delivery and we would love you to join us in further excelling our impact within our healthcare system.

Co-founders Purya, Nick & Rui built MedMe together after identifying the biggest problem to be existing pharmacy software built 20 years ago with the primary purpose to sell drugs . Purya was a health data scientist for the government, Nick a product engineer for the Tesla Roadster, and Rui is a Pharmacist. Our team is equally passionate about using pharmacists to provide more services for patients in the community.

We are building software for an industry that has relied on paper and pen for a long time. This is why crafting, building, and constantly improving the end-to-end customer experience is an essential part of our company. It’s crucial that we listen deeply to the diverse needs of our pharmacies – located anywhere from dense urban jungles to northern remote communities – to design and build for their needs to ultimately provide more proactive and sustainable care for the patients in their communities.

Our mission

MedMe is building the operating system to transform pharmacies into community health hubs. Pharmacies are increasingly doing more than just selling drugs, offering services like vaccinations, prescribing meds, and blood tests. MedMe Health builds software that helps schedule, document, and manage these services at scale.

Our clients include the two largest pharmacy chains in Canada, servicing coast-to-coast in 3500+ pharmacies across 10 provinces, serving millions of patients.
