At accuRx, we're on a mission to change lives by bringing patients and their healthcare teams together.

Who are accuRx?

At accuRx, we’re building the first patient-centred communication platform. Our products help doctors, nurses, pharmacists, administrators, carers and anyone else involved in a patient's care to communicate easily with patients and with each other. We believe this will transform how healthcare is delivered, improving patient outcomes, improving staff morale and increasing the efficiency of health systems.

Our products have 98% adoption in GP practices and we are investing into other areas of healthcare (hospitals, pharmacies, care homes). By making messaging easier, we’re making more of medicine asynchronous, from simple consultations to getting advice from hospital specialists, saving time and making it easier for staff to communicate.

We stay close to our users with everyone visiting a GP practice at least twice a quarter to truly understand how a practice runs, the difficulties they face with technologies and how we can help.

Although we’ve initially tackled the UK healthcare system, we have ambitions to improve healthcare systems across the world. You can view more about the impact we’ve had so far here.

Life as a Technical Programme Manager at accuRx

The Platform team at accuRx is beginning their journey towards building the internal development platform to unlock the potential of the rest of the engineering org, to make them deploy faster, safer, and more often with higher quality. The Technical Programme Manager will blend traditional programme management skills with a technical background, allowing them to communicate seamlessly about the tools and products they’re building with both the engineers that are building them and the engineers that are using them.

Product Leadership

  • You will create a high performing team, blending development, cloud operations, and administration, and in partnership with a technical lead, and ensure your team has everything it needs to deliver on their goals.
  • You'll understand the importance of our business goals, how they translate into Internal Development Platform functionality, and through ruthless prioritisation, will steer your team appropriately to help us achieve them.

Responsible Ownership

  • You'll be responsible for ensuring a high quality bar for everything your team produces across the full product lifecycle.
  • You'll be able to articulate the key risks of your product and your plan to mitigate them.

Product innovation

  • You'll be having nuts-and-bolts conversations about the different technologies that Platform team is building on top of (Azure, Kubernetes, and a myriad of third party tools our platform will integrate with)
  • You’ll use quantitative data to validate your hypotheses, measure success and make informed decisions.
  • You’ll understand how software projects are built and deploy and how software teams run, and the second order effects of the technical solutions on the larger organisation.

Excellent communication

  • You'll be an expert communicator, who is able to flex your communication style to build relationships quickly with a range of stakeholders, from individual engineers to the CTO.
  • You’ll regularly share learnings and insight across the organisation, to ensure everyone understands whether the team is winning or losing.

Product Community

  • You'll share honest accounts of your wins and losses, to advance the collective knowledge of the group and create development opportunities for others.
  • You’ll join the Product community at accuRx to both share and upskill technical knowledge, and learn how other product teams are run.
