Jane's Blog Tips, News, and Thoughts from the Jane Team

Staff DevOps Engineer

Jane is looking for a Staff DevOps Engineer to join the Developer Foundations team in a missional, high-performance, hyper-growth company.  Developer Foundations is a recently established team that provides cross-team enablement for all application teams. In this greenfield role, you would have a chance to establish best practices, delivery excellence, and quality support for the entire dev organization. In this high visibility job, you would be playing a critical role in helping us adopt some stronger common practices around our DevOps culture and help build out and support the roadmap for the Developer Foundations team. You would be partnered with your Dev Manager counterpart to drive the thought leadership around this and bring us to best in class SaaS operations.

As a future Staff Developer in Jane, we’re looking for a strong aptitude towards technical leadership, mentoring, business acumen, and supporting teams on deliverables. You’ll lead by example, handle complex and large scope projects and be excited about participating in medium-term vision. At Jane, this is the fork in the road for IC vs Manager track with an emphasis on leading technically vs being a people leader. There are no expectations of becoming a Manager here, we would love to see you lead and influence across teams and be an essential part of the success of the development team and Jane as a whole.

Like with all positions at Jane, this position is a remote position, allowing you to work anywhere you want across Canada. A happy, healthy and connected team is in the DNA of Jane and so even though we’re not a strict 9 to 5 environment, we’re working hard to ensure that you also have a life outside of work. We pride ourselves on flexibility & autonomy, and when it comes to decision making, we take a decentralized approach ensuring that our teams' voices aren't just heard, but are acted upon. We're building something special at Jane, and we back that up with an employee stock option plan that ensures that everyone has a chance to share in Jane’s success.

We really want the people who work at Jane to love being here, so it's important that we start off with a bit about what makes our company unique. Here are some specifics about what Jane is all about, and with these, hopefully, you have a better idea if this might be the kind of company you want to be part of.

We’re a North Vancouver-born SaaS company with a distributed remote team across Canada, and our platform is modernizing the world of practice management software. We enable the likes of physiotherapists, mental health counsellors, chiropractors, and other allied health practitioners to run their practices in a digital-first way through features such as online booking, charting, scheduling, secure video, and billing along with an evolving library of features.

Tens of thousands of healthcare practices globally are now running on Jane. In 2021, we processed over 73 million patient appointments, and our scheduling application alone handles more than 10 million API calls per day. Jane is now the number one choice for Allied Healthcare practitioners in Canada. We’re growing quicker in the US than we were here in Canada 3 years ago, and we’re now helping run clinics in 44 countries.

We’re profitable, product-led, and growing organically to the point where 85% of our customer growth is either from customer referrals or word of mouth. Growth like this is unique, especially in the world of SaaS, and it doesn’t happen by chance. We have a brilliant team of over 250 employees who all do an amazing job of listening to our customers, building what they need, and providing industry-leading support.

Last year alone we’ve grown our development team from 36 to 70, and the product team has doubled as a whole. 2022 is going to be a big year for Jane as we’re investing heavily into patient experience with our first patient-facing mobile app, enhancing our telehealth experience, building our own (J)analytics platform, working on global insurance integrations, and introducing new features like HIPAA compliant chat.

Of course, it's not all about the numbers, but this puts into perspective the scale of Jane, from the thousands of practitioners whose lives are made easier each day to the millions of patients receiving treatment. If you’re the type of person excited by this growth, we’d love to speak with you.
