SafeBeat Rx

Backend Engineer

San Francisco Part-time and Full-time

About the role

At SafeBeat Rx, we’re on a mission to make life-changing EKG software to power a hospitalization at home. Our product uses a combination of signal processing and machine learning to help diagnose cardiac diseases and advise the appropriate medication. We’re looking for an experienced Python backend engineer who enjoys building modular and efficient applications with an emphasis on quality and best practices. Our product is written in Django following best practices as much as possible. Bonus points if you have experience in Machine Learning and are interested in working on that side of our product as well. You would be part of a distributed, async team, with a culture of rapid iteration and autonomy. We even made it to TechCrunch’s list of top companies on YC Demo Day with unicorn potential! This is a contract position, with the option to transition into a full-time role in the future – the advertised salary range is in $/hour.



– At least 3+ years of experience in Python and Django. 

– Experience with Postgres or other relational databases.

– A passion for building high-quality software 

– Good communication skills


Nice to haves:

– Machine Learning libraries and workflows 

– DevOps – Terraform and AWS 

– Domain-driven development 

– TypeScript and React applications

Why you should join SafeBeat Rx

At SafeBeat Rx (YC S21), we are building ECG software that literally saves lives and replaces a hospitalization. Our take-home kit allows patients to start heart meds safely at home, by combining FDA-cleared wearables with our ECG software that catches heart rhythm changes before they become heart attacks. Because we only focus on the software, our FDA and go-to-market pathways are much faster than other biotech/medtech companies. If you want to have a direct impact on millions of patients with heart problems, we’d love to connect. You would be working closely with the founders – two physician-engineers from Stanford/Harvard with a passion for medical innovation.
