Opportunity: PatientLife Console Software Engineer

Already touching over one million patients a year, GetWellNetwork’s PatientLife System provides Internet access, movies on demand, and customized health and treatment information directly to patients in hospital rooms. PatientLife System brings patients into the care process and connects them to their family and hospital staff. At GetWellNetwork, we take helping patients seriously and constantly apply our passion and energy toward making our software and hardware easier to use and more clinically beneficial.

Our solution includes an application server and video servers and various networking equipment. A small form factor computing device, the PatientLife Console, is placed in each patient room and is used by patients to navigate our system, access the Internet, watch movies, get educated on their condition, etc. As a developer on the Client Device and PatientLife Console team, you will be able to have an immediate and direct impact on how we touch patients by applying your:

General Linux Wizardry : Optimize systems operation, craft better ways to build, monitor, update, deploy and secure it.

Open Source Comfort : We use a lot of it here, which means sometimes you've got to figure it out and patch it with cryptic error messages and without a lot of docs. It is not uncommon for us to be using the bleeding edge build of something to support a piece of hardware or achieve a specific goal. In addition to comfort using it, important too is the ability to seek it out. Finding the better tool for the job is actually part of the job.

Software Development Skills : C, Shell/Bash, Java, Python, XUL, XML/XSLT, JavaScript, etc, etc. There are plenty of opportunities to get your hands dirty in lots of different projects on the development end. Familiarity with media streaming applications such as VLC, XBMC and ffmpeg will be highly valued, as will experience with extending the capabilities of a Mozilla based browser via extensions, and generally managing a customized Linux distribution.

Lots more : Low level Linux stuff - union file systems, kernel configuration, packaging and deployment, communication protocols, electrical engineering, video signal processing, hardware evaluation, etc.

Basically, we are looking for you to be a expert in your technical field - a thought leader; a brainstormer; a problem solver. If we knew what you know, we wouldn't need you, so show us how we can do what we do better, quicker, faster, easier, simpler; or convince us to do something differentMake it easier to implement. Make it easier to manage. Make it faster. Make it better. Make it scripted. Make it magic.
