What you will be doing
We are looking for curious, pragmatic and capable Backend engineers who want to see their work drive better outcomes for Patients and Clinicians. You will join our Product Engineering team and work on important projects in areas like Patient Engagement, Relationship Management and Care Plans. Our product engineers work closely with our product management, design and clinical teams to identify problems and build effective solutions. 
You will join in on ownership of the Backend engineering discipline: working to build not only our APIs, but our culture and processes. Every engineer on the product engineering team has opportunities to span the stack: you will be able to sharpen your backend skills through close collaboration on mobile and frontend engineering challenges. Technical problem solving appeals to you, but you will also create space for your colleagues to demonstrate the same. We all learn and grow to achieve goals that can never fit in a job description.

What success looks like

  • Join the Product Engineering team as a Backend engineer to build and improve our APIs and backend systems. You will have plenty of opportunity to work Fullstack in our React & Typescript Frontends.
  • Help the team refine and maintain engineering processes that let us develop quickly while keeping a high threshold for quality — including writing tests and technical documentation.
  • Routinely ship high quality software that helps simplify healthcare for our patients and clinicians.
  • Engage in the entire life cycle of product engineering, including (but not limited to) sprint planning, retrospectives, on-call rotation, and deploying software.
  • Build an understanding of our business, and our unique approach to health care so that your technical decisions impact the course of the company.
  • What you will bring

  • You have experience with more than one Backend language or framework, and you have shipped software into production. We build our Backends with Clojure and Python.
  • You are capable of spanning the entire stack when necessary. We build our Frontends with React or React Native on Typescript.
  • You set a high bar for technical excellence, and you want to help your peers achieve it.
  • You are able to anticipate technical risks, and can help mitigate them.
  • You have several approaches to debugging, maintaining, and improving backend systems.
