Job Description

Health-tech startup looking for an amazing seasoned python engineer

If you are an amazing python engineer looking for a chance to work in a field with great social impact, then keep reading!

This is a great opportunity to show your skills and shape up the culture and brand of our early stage medical startup.

If there is anything that the current global "health crisis" has taught us, is that we need to take care of our medical workers, so that they can take care of us.

This is how, at Aquila Systems, we embarked on a high flying journey to identify problems and deliver lean solutions to administrative tasks in healthcare. Our patent pending solution is helping medical practitioners to optimize and automate daily tedious tasks like staff assignments and schedules.


We are looking for a seasoned full-stack engineer with experience in several areas outlined below. (with emphasis on the back-end python skills)

Core competencies

  • Back-end programming language: Python (at least 4~5 years experience with python is a must)
  • Familiarity with Django REST framework (experience with multi-tenancy is a plus)
  • Database design and management (MySQL, Postgresql)
  • Experience with system & unit testing
  • Familiarity with containerized deployment
  • Proficiency with Git
  • Good to have front-end experience with any of Vue, React, Angular, which would be a plus
  • Miscellaneous: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, web servers, cache servers
  • Japanese language proficiency is a plus. Our customers are medical facilities and our partners are local medical IT vendors. We use 100% Japanese to communicate outside the company. However, internally either English or Japanese is fine.

Soft skills

  • Comfortable with ambiguity and don't freak out
  • Willingness to learn new skills, have persistence and tenacity
  • Motivated to have a social impact


  • Maintenance and improvement of the existing code base
  • Data design/modeling and DB deployment of our solution
  • Design and creation of REST APIs
  • Integrating the front-end using created REST APIs
  • Ensure that the whole system is designed and built for speed and scalability
  • Write good, easy to understand code and documentation
  • Participate and take lead of technical meetings between us and our hospital clients or medical IT vendors (Japanese language proficiency is a nice to have skill)
  • Collaborate with the data science/engineering team in delivering new features


This is obviously negotiable when it comes to senior developers. One thing is certain, the engineer #1 joining will also benefit from a combination of stock options and common stock if he or she chooses so.

  • 現在、すでに日本にいる候補者のみを検討しています。

  • 100%リモートでの作業が可能で、医療ITベンダーとの打ち合わせはほとんどオンライン会議で行います。しかし、時にはフィードバックを求めるため、現場に出向いて顧客(医療従事者の方々)と話す機会があるため、参加いただける方が望ましいです。当社の顧客は、感染症に関連するリスクを軽減するための非常に厳しい方針と手段をとっている大学病院です。
