epocrates is seeking a Senior Android Developer to help us build and modernize our mobile applications. You'll be working on epocrates, the most trusted medical reference application in the US, serving as an indispensable daily tool for 50% of the doctors in the US.

The epocrates R&D team tackles a variety of complex challenges every day to ensure that our entire suite of products and tools are constantly evolving and improving to meet our users' needs. Our current tech stack includes native iOS/Android apps, web properties, a suite of in-house and third-party content publishing tools, and a commercial advertising platform. Our multi-disciplinary team of SMEs -- front and backend engineers, product management veterans, medical doctors and PharmDs, visual designers, UX researchers, data experts, and more -- all work together so that it's easy for health care providers to make excellent clinical decisions for their patients with epocrates.

As an epocrates R&D team member, you value collaborative environments where you can challenge ideas and learn from your colleagues. You approach your work with insatiable curiosity and have a profound discomfort with unresolved issues. You speak up and take action when you see something that isn't quite right - even if it isn't in your job description or your area of expertise. And you can't wait for the Shout Outs section of our team meetings to give praise to your talented colleagues.

At athenahealth, we believe that diverse teams are the strongest teams. We invite applicants of all genders, races, ethnicities, nationalities, ages, religions, sexual orientations, disability statuses, educational experiences, family situations, and socio-economic backgrounds.
