What does a software engineer do at Doctolib?

Write Code and build products that help people. You will work in a small agile team focused on one product. Each team is made up of product manager, engineering manager and experts from Data and Desgin working on solving one particular problem our users face. You will meet your users, solve their problems and see the features you build you use.

Supported by our Infrastructure, Security, Design and Tooling teams. As a Software Engineer, you are given everything you need to build features and deploy them into production. Work on a best in class development process where pull requests don’t languish idly for long: they are strictly reviewed (code design, performance, security…); they are always covered by automated tests and deployed on a staging environment to be reviewed by the product team.

Own your own development and build a user-focused product that helps millions of people. What we are building is hyper-secure, test-driven and pragmatically user-friendly. 

This is thanks to our tech values:

  • User First: both patients and professionals, we always put our users first.
  • Ownership: The product must be ours so we can make the right decisions.
  • Keep the Stack Simple: be pragmatic, no tech for the sake of tech.
  • Learn & Grow: everything goes fast, but we help you to grow and learn with us.
  • Security and Reliability: We take this seriously and embrace privacy by design.


We foster an environment of entrepreneurship where we want you to take pride and ownership in your work. Our growth

  • Collaborate with product managers, engineering managers, design and data teams to make small, fast incremental improvements to our products. 

Time Split

  • 50% of your time on the design and implementation of roadmap functionalities using our methodologies: peer-programming, code reviews, testing and (…)
  • 15% of the time on purely technical developments (we call them Tech Tasks). Stability, security, technical debt, you name it
  • 15% of the time on bugfixes. That’s the right ratio for us to keep a healthy platform.

The rest of the time is divided between recruitment assistance, field observations directly at the doctors’, technical framing, poker planning, monitoring progress with the Product Managers, participating in open source projects with internal teams but also with other contributors!

Tech & Tools

Everything runs on Ruby on Rails 6.0 backed by PostgreSQL 11.7 and Redis. Front side, we bet on React and RxJS even for our mobile apps. Of course, we can make exceptions when we need to, so we also have a cluster of ElasticSearch in production for specific features. We work with sensitive healthcare data, so we are required to host our platform in a specific data-center with a failover datacenter.
