API design and development: Closely collaborate with the team on the API design, contribute, and implement solutions. Always aim to reduce complexity while adding new features. Actively engage in the roadmap discussions around new use cases and features to be implemented. You seek to learn from best practices rather than reinventing the wheel.
Continuous improvements: Be proactive and regularly propose and implement improvements in all aspects, from code to documentation, performance, and processes. You take ownership, and we trust you to use your best judgment to address unplanned issues when necessary (we are all about empowering engineers and reducing the noise around them). Always leave a place in a better shape than you found it (even just a little!).

Ensure compliance with our solutions: AI medical is a highly regulated field. User and patient data must always be protected by adhering to relevant standards (data anonymization, multi-region support, etc.).
