About us:

Parsley Health is a digital health company with a mission to transform the health of everyone, everywhere with the world's best possible medicine. Today, Parsley Health is the nation's largest health care company helping people suffering from chronic conditions find relief with holistic medicine. Our work is inspired by our members’ journeys and our actions are focused on impact and results.


You build self-service capabilities into infrastructure to keep your fellow engineers independent and moving forward. You are expert with IaaC tools such as Terraform to repeatably build environments that are HIPAA compliant and secure. You are adept at building and optimizing CI/CD pipelines and believe in shifting quality and security left. You’re curious, love experimenting with new tools, and keep your skills up to date (thank you for your service, Chef). You understand that security is not a product and that regulations like HIPAA are just a starting point. You’re excited by the opportunities an ambitious startup will offer, and you look forward to building the tools that will support a diverse, growing team of engineers.
