As a Senior Software Engineer, you have worked in different environments and gathered experience in SCRUM and professional Java development in a sizeable codebase for at least 5 years.
What you will do

In one of the development teams in Zeist (it is a big plus if you live nearby), you develop new functionality to make the exchange of healthcare information effortless for medical doctors and their supportive staff. You make sure new functionality can be deployed and easily troubleshooted and maintained. This means you will also write unit tests and integration tests to expand the safety net. Additionally, as a senior developer, you will also coach other software developers and advise the CTO and other staff on process improvements and new technology choices. If coaching is not your habit (yet), Forcare is open for a Medior Software Engineer as well.

Who are you?

Experience in the healthcare domain (and with the aforementioned standards) is a big plus, but if you have another middleware or message processing oriented background, that is very welcome too!

In general, you have proven problem solving skills (HBO/WO/University level), preferably in a Unix/Linux network intensive (DevOps) environment. Plus you can express yourself effortless in a language like Java 8, English (preferably in Dutch too) and visually in drawings – so you can easily explain what you did in a stand-up or share your architecture decision with a co-worker. You like Test Driven Development (TDD) and a structured, careful way of working, which we think is essential for the medical domain.

What Forcare offers

What they offer besides the usual package, is an open workspace full of smart and pragmatic people with a straightforward communication style. The environment is small enough for you to be recognized for your achievements, yet the company is big enough to offer opportunities outside the Netherlands. We look honestly at ourselves and try to learn from our mistakes. There is good coffee, regular chocolate and a communal lunch where the CEO can sit next to an IT support intern. Besides working passionately to improve healthcare, we also allow ourselves to relax with activities that vary from cultural outings and coding challenges to indulging ourselves in (sometimes geeky) humor.

About the company

Forcare’s main message is “Empower your flow”. This message is directed at healthcare professionals and institutions alike. They do this through standards (IHE/HL7/DICOM) based exchange of medical information, like medical images, reports and other content. Content is unlocked from hospital silos to enable effortless sharing with users and institutions outside the hospital walls. We deliver our solutions on-premise and in the (AWS) cloud.

With offices in Zeist, The Netherlands (HQ, 60 people) and Toronto, Canada, Forcare is active in Europe, the Middle-East, Canada and the USA.
