IPS has a new full stack Software Engineer role at a mission driven consumer facing healthcare technology company here in Chicago! My client is a SaaS based mobile software company applying big data machine learning to solve American’s alcohol and substance abuse problem.  

Right now, 80 Million Americans are addicted to a substance and yet, greater than 90% of people will relapse a year after treatment (many dying). We are solving this problem. Your background and experiences are a perfect match.

By utilizing an enormous amount of real-time data, they are able to not only predict relapse before it happens, but build a pro-active care model that spans years and actually works... making long-term sobriety a likely outcome.That said, having many friends and family go through various forms of treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, I can say it is a very tough and complex problem.
From a tech perspective they are building applications on both IOS and Android, a robust API web service layer, customer facing web applications, large-scale data processing, & machine learning analytics. You must have a strong desire to be a part of a mission-driven company.
What they offer:
  • The work and problems you are solving will have a large impact on the overall health of 1 out of every 10 Americans fighting substance abuse
  • Being challenged every day by a talented & skilled engineering, data science and leadership team
  • Above average base salary for Chicago
