Software Engineer (Rails, Python, and/or Swift a plus)

Pixie Scientific

Our mission is to create elegant products that people trust to watch over their health.  If you're interested in building the future of health monitoring in a group of forward-looking yet practical people with backgrounds in Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, and Physics, then Pixie Scientific is the place for you.

Your Role

You will help us improve our cloud infrastructure to support the recent launch of our first product.  As an early member of the team, you will have the chance to contribute to the architecture decisions that will allow us to flexibly scale as we learn more about our market and customers.  

Your Skills

  • Ability to get things done quickly without compromising future flexibility.
  • Cloud development with AWS, Ruby on Rails, and/or Python.  
  • Mobile web development experience with iOS (Swift in particular) is a plus, but not necessary.
  • Mad analytics skills - or interest in developing them.

Of course, our minds are open to whatever new skills and tools you would like to bring.  As the saying goes - "To the Pessimist, the glass is half-empty.  To the Optimist, the glass is half-full.  To the Engineer, the glass is twice as large as it needs to be!"


You will join a small team in which every member has dramatic influence on our future.  We believe strongly in metrics, testing, and continuous integration.  Our products are designed for real-world environments, which are never ideal - yet we strive to achieve simplicity and not get bogged down in edge cases. Our customers trust us with the most precious thing they have -  health.  Ethics and data security are our top concerns.


We offer competitive salaries and health benefits.  We believe in work/life balance and fostering a happy workplace.


Pixie Scientific is based in downtown NYC.
