Remote Full Stack Software Engineer - Python

VIX.Digital is an agency that specialises in service integration within the public health sector. We work closely with the world's top healthcare organisations to give patients access to better health care, by facilitating the difficult challenges associated with service interoperability.

Our close knit team has worked together on some of healthcare’s biggest projects, we designed NHS 111 Interoperability Architecture, NHS.UK technical infrastructure, NHS.UK content syndication API’s, and integrated a range of apps with GP systems.

We are currently looking for a full stack engineer to join the VIX team. Our offices are based in Warrington, Cheshire; however the successful applicant will be able to work remotely, visiting our office for team meetings or as requested for ad hoc project meetings. We care about output, not process.

We have a mix of designers and developers who you’ll work alongside daily and you will become a key person working on leading healthcare provider projects. At VIX we promote a can do, no blame working environment and the successful candidate should expect to have fun and develop their skills daily. You will be joining a friendly and social team; we have a pool and football table at the office to use freely and have a paid for team lunch most weeks.
