We are a cross-disciplinary team of Health Care, Technology, and Medical experts with several exits (IPOs and Acquisitions) in the past. We are a Series A startup funded by top tier investors. We are currently in stealth-mode and will be launching publicly at the end of the year.
The United States spends twice as much as the average OECD country on health care but has the lowest life expectancy and one of the highest hospitalization rates among these countries. Over the past 50 years, health care costs have grown much faster than inflation even as consumer satisfaction with the health insurance and hospital industry continues to remain low.
We believe that Health care needs to be redesigned as a consumer-centric service. Like every other industry, we believe that empowering members with accurate and accessible information about care, quality, and pricing will drive the most optimal choices.
About this role
Health care is a complex ecosystem. We work with employers (our clients), employees (our members), doctors (our service providers), insurance companies, and many other partners (e.g. urgent care clinics) to deliver care to our members. We are redesigning this experience to be frictionless and fully integrated, so you can make reservations, talk to a doctor, get your medication, etc. with a tap on your App.
In this role, you will...
This includes Typescript, React, Graphql, Jest, and Webpack. You will evolve the architecture to ensure that our technology approach meets short-term agility needs and sets us up to scale long term.
Have a strong understanding of web performance and tooling
You know what metrics matter to ensure users have the highest quality experience possible, and are committed to measuring and mitigating bottlenecks that slow us down.
Pride yourself in delivering next level user experiences that redefine modern application design trends
By building a cohesive design system, you take the product experience to new heights, ensuring users are delighted and empowered by our brand. You know the power and pitfalls of CSS and know what it takes to keep things maintainable. You understand the power of transitions and animation to provide rich interactions, and also when not to use them.
Have fundamental knowledge of the asynchronous nature of web applications
You understand how to manage server/client communications with resilience.
Communicate and collaborate as a member of a high performance team
You are able to give critical feedback to your peers to ensure the team is thriving in a fast paced environment. You recognize you have a lot to teach and learn as the codebase grows with the product. You embrace that your success is the success of the team.
