Java Developer

We’re looking for an experienced Java Developer who is excited to make a real impact on the world by developing innovative mobile and web based medical solutions with an amazing group of brilliant and passionate people.

Who are we? We’re SHOEBOX Inc. We design and develop products that are creating a seismic shift in the way hearing healthcare is provided. Utilizing iOS and web technology to replace bulky, expensive equipment, we’re bringing hearing testing into the 21st century and making it more affordable and accessible than ever before.

Here’s some reasons why that’s important: 5% of the world’s population suffers from disabling hearing loss, 60% of childhood hearing loss is due to preventable causes, the majority of people with disabling hearing loss live in low-middle income countries, and sound booths cost upwards of $20,000—each.

With our products, hearing testing can be conducted outside of a sound booth and without the need for clunky equipment (you just need a calibrated headset and an iPad), which allows for testing almost anywhere, anytime, worldwide.

This means that at SHOEBOX, your contribution will have a truly meaningful impact every single day. On top of that, you’ll be an integral part of an Agile team, working with the latest tools and technologies, pushing the boundaries of what mobile devices can do, and collaborating with developers who are super passionate about their craft.

Why we need you:

We are growing really fast, and we need more passionate, dedicated, awesome people to join our team and help us make a difference.

You’ll have the opportunity to do all kinds of cool things like:

  • Develop complex algorithms and heuristic logic to help clinically diagnose hearing loss
  • Write code to expand and improve our HIPAA-Compliant Amazon cloud environment
  • Be part of a motivated, tight-knit team
  • Take pride in a clean architecture and design
  • Produce clean, maintainable, high quality code
  • Work in a fast-paced Agile environment where the features you build get into the hands of eager customers quickly


  • CS or Engineering background
  • Strong understanding of architecture, design patterns
  • Strong experience developing server code using Java
  • Strong experience with database queries
  • Appreciation of end to end, integration and unit testing
  • Great communication skills

Bonus Points:
