Posted on Tuesday, February 8, 2022


SIRUM is reimagining the future of US healthcare by connecting people with surplus medications at an affordable cost. Our goal is to leverage the ~$11B of surplus that goes to waste every year to improve health equity for the 10M adults in the US who can’t afford their prescriptions. Families’ health comes first and everyone deserves the medications they need to stay healthy. We deliver on this promise by ensuring medicine prices are low, stable, and transparent!

SIRUM is a fast-growing, non-profit, for-impact startup at the intersection of health tech + social enterprise. Founded at Stanford University and backed by Y Combinator, our platform moves $575,000 worth of medications every week, sourced from hundreds of medicine donors across dozens of states. Join us in building a national solution to the drug pricing epidemic that has been featured on The TODAY Show, The New York Times, and Forbes.

  • Improving our devops to quickly and confidently integrate, test, and deploy our code to AWS

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 5+ years of experience in JS, PHP, and/or SQL, and 2+ years of experience working within a small team (pharmacy experience is a plus)
  • You’re mission-driven and look forward to using your development skills to help families get the medicine they need.
  • You have the ability to switch between languages, applications, and backend/frontend.
