Isla enables healthcare systems to deliver next level healthcare, meeting the challenges of global increase in demand for services through an efficient new model and technology platform. We provide clinicians with the platform they need to receive a continuous flow of clinical information from patients and create an always up to date understanding of a person’s health. This provides valuable clinical context for decision-making whilst delivering convenient care for patients, empowering clinical teams to deliver responsive care with fewer appointments. The Isla platform is intuitive, endlessly scalable, and approved by NHS Digital as a cloud storage solution.

The Team

We are a growing team dedicated to improving healthcare. We are ambitious, customer focused, and driven by the impact we are having in healthcare. We’re also a well funded startup, which brings a level of uncertainty, but also agility and growth opportunities unlike anywhere else.

You will work directly with our other Engineers and Founders to ensure you’re developing professionally, as well as happy, motivated, and understand the wider business & health context that we are working in. The people around you will be super smart and motivated, and expect a lot from you. That will be exciting for you. 

The Tech

Isla is an Angular app deployed to Firebase, supported by Cloud Functions, Pub/Sub and Docker via Cloud Run. Connectivity with our clients is handled via the Google Healthcare API, in addition to private VPC access via the NHS HSCN network.

We are looking for a Software Developer to work closely with our users and prospects, understand their challenges, and ship things quickly to test & learn. You will develop new features quickly, so we can push them to our users, get feedback, and understand what we need to build next. You should be biased towards pace and experimentation and excited about solving the big challenges in healthcare. We are building using TypeScript and Angular, using Google’s Firestore as a backend.

Over the next 12 months you will:

  • Contribute to Product strategy
  • Design and build the platform that will allow our clients to look after their patients
  • Interact directly with the users you are building for, to understand their challenges and deliver what they need


  • You’re a proactive Engineer who enjoys collaborating with all areas of the business and our customers directly
  • 3 to 5 years of professional experience as a Developer
  • Passionate about solving complex problems in a team of brilliant people
  • A very good understanding of Angular and experience improving performance in Angular applications
  • Good working knowledge of RxJS
  • Experience with unit testing front end applications using jest or jasmine
  • It would be advantageous if you have previous experience working with Google Cloud Platform / Firestore or other NoSQL databases
  • A keen focus on quality, and personal ownership of the work that you do
  • Solid understanding of git

Using AI tools for your application

Most of our roles include several questions as part of the application process. AI tools such as ChatGPT might be useful in structuring or proof-reading your cover letter or your application answers. We encourage you to do your own research though to fully understand the company and the role you are applying to as you will be asked questions during any interview. Generic AI-generated answers are also really obvious. We’d like to get an idea of how you think early in the process; you should also make sure Isla is the right fit for you before you apply. Make AI tools work for you, not against you!
