Software Engineer

who are you

You’re a software engineer with a passion for programming and creating things. You’ve preferably got full-stack experience, or maybe you’ve focused on frontend development and have worked on mobile applications in the past. You’ve got a thirst for learning new things, and you probably have past experience working in teams and shipping real products to people. You may have an MSc in Computer Science, and you don’t mind joining a project at a point in time where the overall system and architecture is still being fleshed out day by day.

If you’ve got experience with databases, Git, CI/CD systems, React, TypeScript, NodeJS and/or some of the usual, big languages (C#, Java, …) then that’s a big plus.


The current tech stack consists of a .NET backend running several microservices that communicate via RabbitMQ, a mobile application for iOs and Android built using Ionic, as well as a Knockout.JS-powered website for hospital clinicians.

We are in the midst of building the next generation of this platform completely from scratch. You’ll likely be working on code in React, TypeScript, NodeJS, Python, and/or a language like C# or Java, and get to help build a platform from the ground up.

WHO IS REHFELD MEDICAL

Rehfeld Medical’s main product is a software platform that supports the treatment and care for heart patients with implanted pacemakers. The platform delivers decision-support for clinicians at the hospital and engagement in own care for patients. We do this with a web frontend for the hospital clinicians and a smartphone app for patients. Learn more about us in the media section.

You'll be part of an interdisciplinary R&D company, based in Copenhagen, Denmark. We are originally a spin-out from the University of Copenhagen (see www.scaut.dk).

Our culture is based on these values and beliefs

  • we sketch, build and test prototypes early

  • we build on user-centered design principles

  • we base insights on thorough fieldwork and academic research

  • we apply agile software development methods

  • we keep an open, free and very flexible work environment

Our work is ambitious. We create solutions that improve the lives of patients and the work practice for health professionals. If you are an entrepreneurial spirit with software engineering skills, we would very much like to work with you. We can't promise you a Tesla, but your salary will fit your skills.


  • Our work makes a real difference for patients. This is exceedingly difficult in a time where the primary focus for most hospitals is on cutting down resources and figuring out how to manage more patients.

  • We’re all passionate about our journey and each other. The team is here to make a difference and to enjoy things while we do! Hiring the right engineer is two-folded. One part is finding great programmers and thinkers while the other just as important part is to find colleagues who work well together and who enjoy each others company. We don’t want one without the other.

  • Flexible work environment. We don’t have specific work hours for engineers, and you’re free to work from home (to a degree) as well - as long as you’re around for the meetings that are face to face. Some of us always come in at 9, others come in later or earlier depending on meetings or things they need to do elsewhere. We want to let you work in the way you are most effective and we don’t believe in dictating that it should necessarily be between 9-5.

  • We’re all involved in many parts of the process. We’re still a small team and we firmly believe that we should all understand why we are building what we are, what the business value is, the needs of patients and clinicians, and so on. We spend a lot of effort making sure we don’t end up with “information silos", where people just hand things off to another team and forget about it — through things like eventstorming, Domain Driven Design, Behavior Driven Design, sitting engineers down with actual patients and clinicians, and on a more general level by the different teams working closely together.

  • We’re solving hard problems. Doing health tech right is very difficult for a number of reasons. Some of them are related to technology. A huge number of standards and protocols exist within the health tech sphere and more are being developed constantly. Moreover, it is also a byproduct of the fact that many hospitals, and even wards within hospitals, run a large variety of different systems in concert. The same can be said for the manufacturers of medical devices such as pacemakers and ICDs, on their own proprietary standards or older, public standards. Other reasons are more practical; different hospitals and clinics simply have different workflows and this can and does impact the way we have to design software to support those individualities. And some are legal, ethical and moral in nature; GDPR compliance, security, auditing and logging, the Danish laws about how to treat sensitive data, etc.
