Role purpose:

Elsevier s Patient Engagement solutions and technology engage, educate and empower patients by giving them quick access to the same evidence-based information you trust, but delivered in interactive and patient-friendly ways. This turns patients into active participants in their healthcare, not only while they re with their care team but, more importantly, at home where most of their care will take place.

We expect the successful candidate to spend 50% of their time close to the technology, coding and developing software.

As a Lead Software Engineer, the successful candidate will collaborate closely with several platform teams, and will focus on integrating all components of the platform to facilitate effective communications with all key systems utilizing the squad model to support new feature development/product delivery and quality. Our squads enjoy full autonomy regarding how they go about delivering against long and short term goals, helping to ensure alignment and quality.

This is a high profile role within Elsevier, and the successful applicant s contribution will ultimately be transformative to the business.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
