Radiopaedia.org is the largest collaborative radiology site on the planet. Our mission is to create the best radiology reference the world has ever seen and to make it available for free, forever, for all. Since our launch in 2005, we have made great strides towards that goal.
In 2020, we
- served 225 million pages
- to over 33.9 million individuals
- from every single country on earth
We are responsible for helping countless health professionals in the provision of better diagnosis and treatment of their patients and are particularly important to low and middle-income regions who increasingly rely on us for free up to date reference material.
We are looking for developers to join our team and to help continually improve the site and the good that it does.
Radiopaedia is a Ruby on Rails application hosted on AWS. We store data in Postgres, and use React and TypeScript in a few of our newer features. The codebase is more than 10 years old, with nearly 24,000 commits.
We currently have a team of four developers (in Australia and Japan) who work closely with the founder of Radiopaedia. We work remotely using Slack, Pivotal Tracker, git, and other collaboration tools.
The current development team are all part time and fully remote.
Asherah is a systems engineer from Melbourne. Years of experience maintaining the user content pipeline at GitHub mean you can ask her any Markdown-related questions you might have. In her spare time, Ashe enjoys embedded systems and breaking bad crypto.
Daniel is an tinkerer & games-of-every-kind nerd in Melbourne. He's got a particular interest in constraint-driven system design & data modelling.
Roland is a Melbourne-based programmer with a few years working in network monitoring/security firms prior to his current role at Radiopaedia. He's also fond of the outdoors generally, and rock climbing in particular.
Phil is a Japan-based Canadian software developer who has developed software since the days of punch cards. Despite that, he still enjoys learning new patterns, especially in Ruby on Rails, his framework of choice since version 2004. He also has a serious guitar addiction.
Frank founded Radiopaedia.org in 2005 and continues to intimately involved in the development of the site. In his day job, he is an academic neuroradiologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital where he works clinically (primarily reporting brain MRI studies) and conducting research in a variety of brain and machine learning related topics (Google Scholar).
Hours and time-zones
Our belief is that work should not only be meaningful but also flexible. Hours per week are flexible as is when you work them. Weeks of leave are also flexible and we are happy to negotiate terms that work for you. For example, "1000 hours per year, spread roughly evenly" works for us.
This flexibility also means that we are very happy for you to be in a different time zone.
We also value personal development and usually include this in our agreements, depending on hours, seniority, remuneration, etc.
Workplace and equipment
Radiopaedia does not have an office and you will be working remotely from the comfort of your own home or shared workplace or wherever you do your best work. You are expected to provide your own computer equipment and an internet connection and of course, these need to be fit-for-purpose.
Competitive and negotiable.
