We have raised more than $250 million in aggregate, from investors such as Insight Partners and Goldman Sachs. Our team includes veteran executives and the brightest minds backed by industry leaders in the healthcare space. CBInsights recently named us among the top 100 AI companies in the world.

This is a product engineering role. You will be part of a small, close-knit, cross-functional team including product managers, backend engineers, frontend engineers, data scientists and designers on a mission to understand customer needs and build thoughtful solutions that solve hard problems.

  • Perform design and code reviews and resolve production issues and ensure that the service is running smoothly at all times.
  • Make the team stronger by sharing your knowledge via documentation, blogs, tech talks, etc.


  • 3+ years of professional experience working on production RESTful web services in cloud environments (AWS or GCP)
  • Strong command in Python
  • Strong command on SQL and database performance
  • Ownership and getting things done - we value curiosity (willingness to figure things out and understand how systems work), passion (strong desire to build the right things and build things right), and entrepreneurial spirit (a bias for action and getting things done)


  • Experience working with serverless technologies like AWS lambdas, API Gateways and SQS
  • Experience in developing GraphQL APIs
  • Experience working on healthcare products


  • The opportunity to work with a passionate, motivated team in a start-up environment
  • Competitive compensation and RSU package
  • Comprehensive healthcare benefits
  • 401(k) Match
  • Paid Time Off and Parental Leave
  • Monthly reimbursement for Skill Building
