Title: Senior Software Engineer

About Proscia

Pathology is at the center of medicine and is undergoing a profound transformation as the final frontier of digitization in healthcare. We started Proscia to accelerate pathology’s transition from microscope to images, and to use that data to change the way we think about cancer. We can’t change medicine alone. That’s why we’re looking for curious thinkers. Big dreamers. Developers, evangelists, pathologists, and scientists. Exceptional talent to help us use great power for good and advance humankind.

At Proscia, we push the limits of medicine and technology, solving problems the world has never solved before. We build software used by thousands of scientists and pathologists, who work on the front lines of fighting big enemies, like cancer, for patients around the globe. To accelerate our vision, Proscia has raised capital from great investors like Scale Venture Partners, Emerald Development Managers, Hitachi Ventures, Flybridge, and more.

About this Position

As a Full Stack developer, you’ll be an important contributor to Proscia’s platform, crafting a product that empowers scientists in Life Sciences and Biopharma companies. Our product, a platform for high-resolution virtual microscopy images, will challenge you and provide growth potential you won’t see anywhere else.

Responsibilities: What You’ll Do

Working at a startup like Proscia means wearing many hats, but when you come to work you can expect to focus on the following:

  • Working with our existing Agile-scrum team on end-to-end operation of our product with a focus on the backend
  • Working closely with product management to understand the requirements of our customers (e.g. pathologists, clinicians) and work with design mockups
  • A good understanding of APIs: REST, event-driven/pub-sub integrations

What we’re seeking:

Proscia is a high-growth company, and we look for the entrepreneurial thinkers that thrive in a challenging environment, that are ready to build the plane while flying it. You will bring:

  • At least 5+ years of professional full stack software development experience
  • Expertise in Javascript, experience with Nodejs or equivalent stack
  • Expertise with API development
  • Experience with front end frameworks, preferably Vue 3
  • A strong understanding of Architectural Principles and Software Development Best Practices
  • A strong interest in DevOps practices – CI/CD pipelines
  • Familiarity with Linux

Beyond Just Work

As a company in the healthcare field, we want our people to be happy and healthy, in and out of the office. In addition to competitive pay, we ensure everyone on our team is supported with savings, schedule, and insurance options that promote long-term health and personal growth.

Our office environment is designed for creativity and agility: with walls as notepads and couches for collaboration. We’re located in the heart of Philadelphia, with views of the city atop the train station so you can spend your time focusing on what matters most. Yes, we have the free food, gourmet coffee, craft beer, massage chairs, and wellness rooms —but you’ll come for the challenge, the camaraderie, and the opportunity to do bold work.

At Proscia, we don’t just accept differences — we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products, and our community. Proscia is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
