Sales & Account Executive, Patient Registries

At OpenApp we believe that, in collaboration with our clients, we deliver high quality, fully managed software solutions that provide data-driven evidence and real client value.

Our innovative IT systems allow our clients, many of which are in the government and healthcare sectors, to make data-driven critical decisions based on evidence. In the healthcare sector we work with patient organizations, clinicians, researchers, pharma and health informatics managers on projects that contribute to enhancing our communities and the lives of others. Our platforms and bespoke software systems incorporate both standard and bespoke datasets. As a leading provider of rare disease patient registries and large scale, transnational collaboration platforms, we apply technology and innovative design to solve challenging customer problems.

Since our founding in 2002, open source and the open source community has played a key role at OpenApp. We like people with experience developing with Python in a Linux environment. Examples of our projects include back-end database development, working with geographic information systems, geospatial analytics, a broad range of data visualization tools and incorporating virtual consultation capabilities into patient facing applications.

Working together with clients, our marketing and sales team bridge the gap between the potential of technology and clients needs. The multi-functional OpenApp agile development teams include project management, business analysts, software architects and engineers, quality assurance test engineers and UX professionals. Whether the implement is cloud-based, hosted or at the client site, the underlying IT infrastructure is ably managed by our in-house IT systems administrators. Our ITIL-certified service management provides on-boarding, training and on-going support.

At OpenApp, we pride ourselves in delivering technology solutions to the highest levels of client satisfaction and believe we have a real opportunity to make a difference for our clients.
