What is Zesty?


Zesty is a multi-award winning European digital health company backed by a group of international VC funds, including Mangrove Capital, LBO France and Qualcomm Ventures. We offer a suite of patient facing digital tools to healthcare providers.


Our clients are hospitals, community providers and general practice surgeries. Our apps remove the friction from everyday health related tasks, like booking and managing appointments, reading letters digitally and sharing copies of electronic medical records.


Our vision is to fundamentally change the way hospitals and community providers communicate with their patients, whilst providing tools that empower patients to take more direct control of their care.


What's the job?


We are looking for a Mid and Senior Ruby developers to join our talented team. If you are looking to play an instrumental part in steering the future of our platform, at both the application and architectural levels, we can offer you that. 


Do you enjoy working through complex problems? How about prototyping new technologies to assess their feasibility for future use in our platform? Do you want to guide and mentor junior developers? If this is what you're looking for we would love to hear from you.


We use: Rails 5/6, AWS, Postgres, Redis. The rest you can probably guess yourself.


What’s it like working at Zesty?


Developers at Zesty have a lot of autonomy. Once the high­-level requirements are understood it is then up to us to implement functionality in the best way we can. We want a team of creative problem solvers, not robots.


All our work is subject to peer review via pull requests. We encourage everyone to review and comment on all pull requests. Once your work is accepted it will go through multiple testing and UAT environments before reaching production. We typically deploy to production on a weekly basis.


We have a bright and airy office in London Bridge very close to the train station. We have regular social events too.


What are we working on right now?


We currently have multiple active hospital integration projects that we're working on, which are challenging and complex. We also have a growing analytics platform to support the business which we have built from the ground up. Future phases of this project will include building an API to extract data, collecting additional dimensions of data and improving the scalability of the platform.


In the future, we want to start modularising our main Rails app to reduce complexity and improve the codebase.


How will we interview you?


We will have an initial introductory phone call to discuss both the role at Zesty and also what you're looking for. We may then proceed to a face-to-face interview in our offices which will include an on-site technical exercise. No homework or preparation is required. If time allows you will also meet one or two of the other developers on the team.


What does it pay?


We will offer a competitive salary depending on your experience. You'll get 25 days paid leave and we offer a competitive pension program and private healthcare.


What about remote working?


We are flexible when it comes to occasionally working from home, but this is an on­-site job.


Anything else?


Please DO NOT apply unless you are in the UK and eligible to work here. We are unable to offer work permit assistance.
