    This is a greenfield project where we have a significant new partnership with Microsoft and are building our new infrastructure on Azure. If you have prior experience building a public cloud-based platform from the ground up, we’d be keen to see your application. We’re looking for candidates who are passionate who can recommend modern technologies and practices that have a track record of being used successfully in the platform we are looking to build.

    At Our Future Health, our mission is to transform the prevention, detection and treatment of conditions such as dementia, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.  We’re looking for people to join us on our journey. If you’re looking for a new challenge where you can contribute to helping future generations live in good health for longer, then we’re keen to speak with you.

    • Implement best practices when it comes to availability, scalability, operational excellence, and efficiency
    • Participate in a 24/7 on-call rota.

    What you won’t be doing

    • Working in a siloed environment with no freedom to make decisions.
    • Working in a place where you can’t see the impact your expertise makes.
