We are a team on a mission, to put accessible and affordable healthcare in the hands of every person on earth. Our mission is bold and ambitious, and it’s one that’s shared by our team who shares our values, to dream big, build fast and be brilliant.
To achieve this, we’ve brought together one of the largest teams of scientists, clinicians, mathematicians and engineers to focus on combining the ever-growing computing power of machines, with the best medical expertise of humans, to create a comprehensive, immediate and personalized health service and make it universally available.
At Babylon our people aren’t just part of a team, they’re part of something bigger. We’re a vibrant community of creative thinkers and doers, forging the way for a new generation of healthcare. We’re only as good as our people. So, finding the best people is everything to us.
We serve millions, but we choose our people one at a time…
Our Cloud Engineering team is a team of Cloud Engineering specialists who help enable, drive adoption and govern well architected use of cloud across Babylon. We are primarily an AWS shop but also make use of GCP particularly for data analytics and we have some other cloud providers particularly supporting our offerings in emerging markets.
We have an ambitious roadmap for the next few months. We are looking to improve the self service aspect of the tools we have built, massively reduce the cost and time it takes for us to spin up a new geography, and (just like everyone else) looking to optimize the cost of our existing deployments.
As our platform directly affects the access to healthcare for our patients, its availability is very important. Healthcare being a very regulated industry we have to ensure compliance with the highest standards in different countries such as HIPAA and GDPR, and continuously improve the security of the platform.
We run in cross functional teams, so you’ll be working in a team of people with a complimentary set of skills and experiences, and will bring your own unique expertise and knowledge to make your team even better. We involve our engineers at every stage of the delivery cycle, so you’ll be influencing how our features are designed as well as being hands on. We also follow a “run what you build” approach so there will be a support element to the role with occasional out of hours work. We are hugely flexible though, so we will work with you to ensure that we minimise the impact this has on your work life balance.
