AdhereTech: Senior Software Engineer at AdhereTech (New York, NY) (New York, NY)

Posted: Feb 20, 2020

AdhereTech creates tailored support programs for patients on the world's most crucial medications. These programs are driven by our award-winning, patented device: the smart pill bottle. Our intelligent system automatically delivers customized text messages, phones calls, live pharmacist support, and more to promote patient adherence to vital medications. AdhereTech is always free for patients, which allows us to achieve our company mission.

Although we are an IoT company that makes a high-tech medical device, we consider ourselves a software and data company. We are collecting information about how people take their medications that has never before been analyzed on this scale. This allows us to understand patient behavior in ways that were previously impossible, and to continuously improve the patient experience.
