About Akido Labs


Akido Labs is looking for frontend/full stack and backend engineers to join our team in Downtown Los Angeles.

We’re a Y Combinator backed company leading the transformation of major healthcare and government institutions to become modern, data-driven organizations. We believe that by building and connecting these data networks, allowing for the free flow of information, we will create the more equitable and rational world we envision. A few recent Akido deployments include developing a system to support a nation-wide disaster preparedness network, improving health outcomes by driving positive patient behavior at one of the nation’s largest health systems and combating homelessness at ground zero in Los Angeles.

About Akido

Akido is a dynamic team doing big things. We care deeply about the work we do, and about how that work furthers our vision of a world in which data can be leveraged into effective action. We learn from each other, everyone’s opinion is valued, and we enjoy a dynamic, collaborative approach to developing our product. We constantly invest in the personal growth of our employees, providing opportunities to expand within the organization and pursue personal interests.

Software Engineering

As part of the Engineering team, you will be involved in all stages of the product development and deployment life-cycle: ideation, user interviews, design, planning, prototyping, execution, shipping, and iteration. The majority of your time will be spent coding, but your domain expertise and computer science instincts will enable you to create more informed plans, whether designing individual modules or making sure that multi-system integration will be robust and scalable.

Engineering at Akido is optimized for change as we are constantly faced with new challenges. We build new solutions with our clients, use them as a testing ground to perfect the feature set and then begin another solution while improving and scaling already deployed products. On the one hand, this means that comfort with deadlines and ability to ship are essential. On the other hand, it means that we have an endless supply of interesting problems and technical green fields.

Company Culture

We are: * Culturally diverse * Flexible toward the goal of getting things done * Independent and great at resolving ambiguity
