Senior Software Engineer (LLMs)

Join Neko Health as a Senior Software Engineer specializing in Large Language Models (LLM) and impact the health-tech industry from a unique, cutting-edge perspective! We are seeking a creative and skilled professional to contribute to our ambitious projects, particularly in developing and enhancing our health data platform with advanced LLM technologies.

About Neko Health

Founded in 2018 in Sweden by Hjalmar Nilsonne and Daniel Ek, Neko Health is a pioneering health-tech company. Our mission is to revolutionize healthcare with a focus on prevention and early detection. Utilizing our innovative medical scanning technology, we aim to facilitate comprehensive and non-invasive health data collection that is both accessible and affordable. Our journey involves redefining the healthcare experience through state-of-the-art sensor technology and AI, including the integration of Large Language Models to interpret and utilize health data effectively. While we are a remote-first company, we are headquartered in Stockholm.

About the role

We're looking for an experienced and technically proficient Senior Software Engineer to join our team, with a focus on implementing and improving applications utilizing Large Language Models. Your role will involve working closely with our machine learning experts and other software engineers to develop algorithms for health assessments using data from Neko Health body scans. The ability to handle and process large volumes of data, apply LLM technologies for data interpretation and analysis, and ensure data security is crucial.

Key Qualifications

  • Extensive experience in software development, ideally with experience from working with Large Language Models and AI.
  • Proven track record of shipping software.
  • Experience in Big Data, cloud infrastructure, and machine learning services.
  • Experience from testing and measuring performance of ML applications
  • Background in building and maintaining data pipelines, AI models, and dashboards a plus.
  • Proficiency in cloud platforms (Azure, AWS, GCP) and tools like Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Experience with Azure and Databricks is highly valued.
  • Exceptional analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Effective communication and teamwork abilities, essential for our remote-first environment.
  • Front-end development experiences using Typescript and React is a big plus.
  • A product mindset.

About the Neko Engineering Team

  • Distributed and Remote First

We are over 50 full time engineers at the company, spanning diverse disciplines such as Hardware Engineering, Firmware Development, Electrical Design, Algorithm Development, Machine Learning Development, Optronics Research, Frontend Development and more.

Our headquarters and our hardware development team are in Stockholm, Sweden.

We are a Remote First company; however, it is of course much easier to work remotely as a software engineer than a hardware or firmware engineer (since they require access to hardware or devices occasionally). Some software engineers based in Stockholm work one day a week or one day every two weeks from the office.

We meet a couple of times per year to get to know each other and have fun.

  • Organization and Way of Working

The engineering team is divided into smaller cross functional project teams that each focus on a specific goal or target, where some groups are long-lived, and some are short-lived, depending on how big the goal or deliverable is. We strive to create groups which are cross-functional and able to complete their goals without dependence on other teams, even though this is of course not always possible.

Groups track goals yearly and quarterly with goal follow-up across the entire engineering organization bi-weekly.

Most groups do internal planning on a bi-weekly basis, but in the end, it is up to the group to decide how they want to work.

We have, however, mandated that all groups must present their progress or failures or hacks at our bi-weekly engineering demo, a fun meeting/presentation where we talk about everything from short-circuiting power-modules, how hard it is to calibrate cameras or align polygons in space, to neat new command line tools for operations, a new auth mechanism in the backend, a cool new way to visualize health data or a new feature which helps our doctors be more productive.

We have a flexible workplace that focuses on work/life balance, and we strongly believe in our mission but do not think that achieving it requires sacrificing everything else.
