contextflow is an award-winning startup developing artificial intelligence based software applications to support radiologists during their clinical routine. As a Senior ackend Engineer, you will support our team in developing, deploying and operating our system. Our innovative medical product strives to bring state-of-the-art deep learning into clinical radiology routine. As a member of the backend team, you will help to develop the system delivering the technology using on-premise and cloud infrastructure, integrate machine learning technology and help to put our system in production.

We are currently building the second generation of our production system with a focus on improving performance, scalability and robustness. We like to choose pragmatic but also innovative technologies, and we are also open to learn from new talents joining the team. Our tech stack currently contains following technologies:

  • Elm for the frontend, we love (virtually) no runtime errors
  • Go for the backend, very pragmatic, easy to build and deploy
  • Looking hard at clojure, because of everything that Go isn’t
  • Nix for reproducible build and development environments
  • Containerization with docker using Nix for making it reproducible
  • Kubernetes as the container engine in the cloud depending on customer integration – we have to be flexible enough to provide other solutions
  • Terraform instead of helm charts to keep sane
  • NixOs as our base linux distribution

We believe that System Development and DevOps belong together, so the development team takes the responsibility to develop, maintain and drive the operations infrastructure.
