Berlin, Germany
Software / Web Development

DoctorBox’s vision is to simplify your life by integrating your medical information in one app. With the DoctorBox app, you can share medical records, track your medication intake and receive test results – all at once.

We are now entering a new phase in our development. The aim is to build a marketplace for digital healthcare applications that will allow our users to access healthcare solutions – from diagnosis to home testing kits. As a budding “super app”, our focus is on integrating healthcare partners and services to support everyone on their journey to live a longer, healthier life.

We are constantly looking to build innovative healthcare solutions, improve our usability, and scale our business. We have already done so with our specialized COVID-19 testing software and intend on maintaining our success in this new phase. To do so, we want to strengthen our IT leadership by recruiting a VP of Engineering (f/m/d) to lead our developers and business through this transition.

helping to develop innovative digital healthcare solutions, and want the freedom, challenges and ownership of a young start-up combined with a mature management system (ISO9001/27001), then DoctorBox might be the right place for you.

The purpose of the VP Engineer is to take a proactive and leading role in the design and realization of the technical strategy across the business, while taking commercial impact and business objectives into consideration. Together with our CTO, you will be responsible for the engineering teams (Android and iOS), the technical improvement of our existing products and
infrastructure, and in-house technical consultancy for our new projects.
