We will be hiring for several more positions in 2020, so please stay in touch. Follow us on Twitter @innolitics.
Thank you for your interest in Innolitics.
The salary for the position is $70k - $85k/year, depending on your ability and experience.
We only work on fulfilling projects—ones that we believe make the world a better place. For example, our current projects include software for AI assisted tracking of metastatic cancer, software for radiation oncology clinics, a startup building an imaging device to detect ear infections, open-source software used by neurosurgeons and researchers, and several other interesting projects.
You can see past projects in our portfolio.
We've been entirely remote from the start, and we plan on keeping it that way. You can live wherever you want within the United States except California, Alaska, and Hawaii, and you must be authorized to work in the United States.
We typically provide two weeks of paid time off your first year, three weeks your second and third years, and four weeks for each year after that. We are open to swapping a few weeks vacation time for a lower salary. If you are interested in this, let us know.
We encourage you to use it. We recognize that happy and well-rested developers are successful developers. We only ask that if you go somewhere exotic for vacation, you share photos with your co-workers!
We meet once each year to have some fun and get face time with one another. Our retreat was cancelled this year due to COVID-19 but we hope to resume them soon. The retreats usually begin Thursday afternoon and end Saturday afternoon. The destination always changes. Previous retreats have been in Austin, Nashville, Dallas, New York City, Boulder, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Typically we rent a large Airbnb for the entire team (although this is becoming more challenging as we grow).
We invest in the personal and professional development of all our team members. We dedicate two and a half hours on Wednesday afternoons to ongoing learning. We use this time to learn about new tools and techniques and discuss a wide array of topics related to our field. Here is a list of our previous learning topics; it's OK if you are unfamiliar with these topics, but they should interest you.
We provide a 401(k), with Traditional and Roth options. Innolitics contributes 3% of salary per year to your 401(k), and that money vests immediately. The 401(k) plan includes very low-cost index mutual funds, and we cover all the plan costs.
We provide company health insurance (read more about this in our handbook).
We offer bonuses based on performance-milestones and company profitability.
We reimburse internet costs up to $100/month and provide a $500/year equipment stipend.
Our company handbook contains a lot of useful information about how we work. Please feel free to browse through it if you are interested.
We look forward to hearing from you!
We will try to review your coding quiz submission, cover letter, and resume within five business days of receiving it. If we feel that you are a good fit for the position, we will contact you and schedule a 45-minute zoom call. If we don't feel you are a good fit, we will let you know that too. Due to the large volume of applications we typically receive, if you don't follow all of the instructions above, we may not respond.
If the 45-minute call goes well, we will schedule a technical coding interview. The technical interview will be a two to three hour session with David, Yujan, and an Innolitics engineer. The interview will be an interactive coding session where you will be asked a few questions and be expected to solve them with us interactively. You may use any language that you find comfortable and there will not be the need to implement a GUI. You are allowed to reference any material (including StackOverflow) during this interview.
If necessary, we will schedule a final interview to finish up.
We try to respond quickly after the final interview, since waiting for a job offer can be stressful (especially if you have offers from other companies). However, sometimes we need to wait a few days so that we can finish interviewing other candidates.
