Software Engineer


In 2018, Aviro launched Ithaka, a multichannel (web, WhatsApp and app) point-of-care diagnostics support and linkage to care platform that improves infectious disease outcomes for both patients and providers.  We are initially supporting HIV self-testing but with a view to expand to other use cases. In the previous year we have (1) built a basic version of the tool and tested it in studies with Johns Hopkins, Wits University and others; (2) signed high-profile health providers who are piloting the tool this year; and (3) refined our business plan and proposition to have a strong income and scaling strategy.   We are scaling our platform and as such we are hiring for the role of software engineer to join our growing engineering team. The software engineer will contribute to the design, development and deployment support of our solution as well as research on new fit for future technologies while actively implementing viable solutions.

  • Exposure to cloud platforms e.g GCP, AWS or Azure
  • Strong experience in relational databases such as BigQuery, PostgreSQL, MySQL
  • Experience with Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning for messaging automation a strong plus.
