HotDoc provides software that helps patients manage their personal health and relationship with their doctor. Our goal is to create the best healthcare experience possible for everyone in Australia. We’re well on our way with over 12,000 doctors and 1m+ patients per month using our software.

We’re a diverse, ethics-driven team of about 70 people working out of our plant-filled office with the best terrace in the Melbourne CBD. A handful of our team work remote from Perth, the Gold Coast and New Zealand.

As a Frontend Software Engineer, you’ll be responsible for implementing high-quality interfaces for our patient users, medical centres, nurses and doctors around Australia. Our popular mobile apps, hardware kiosk interface, patient web experience, clinical dashboards and site-installed software are all built ultimately with Javascript, HTML and CSS.

  • Have an interest in healthcare, or a personal link to the healthcare industry.


  • Implement user interfaces in Ember.js, with Typescript
  • Write and maintain automated test coverage
  • Conduct peer code reviews
  • Attend occasional customer visits, and contribute to product development discussions with your own ideas.


  • 2+ years of modern Javascript framework experience (Ember, React, Angular, Vue etc)
  • Interest in learning Ember.js and Typescript, or prior experience with it
  • Enthusiasm for automated test coverage as a way to maintain code quality and velocity
  • An awareness and pride in the user experience of the interfaces you build
  • Curiosity for the latest frontend best practices and tools with which to keep the team performing at its best.


  • Influence over how and why things are done
  • Regular work from home days encouraged
  • Any learning resources (books etc) paid for
  • Domestic conference attendance paid for
  • Team retreats to Phillip Island, including the satisfaction of beating the CEO at mini-golf
  • Spacious terrace overlooking the Yarra, plus a fine selection of beverages on tap, fresh fruit, and snacks
