Posted on January 31st, 2019

We’re looking for a Software Engineer skilled in DevOps to join our growing Engineering team!

About Us

Our mission is to build a world where no one’s health is hindered by their need.

We're effecting change for the most vulnerable among us by building software that social workers, nurses, patient advocates and care coordinators at Hospitals and Health Insurance companies use to connect their patients with social services. Our software addresses "social determinants," such as access to food, housing, childcare and jobs, which determine over 60% percent of our population's health. Our aim is to move the needle on healthcare outcomes and cost for these populations. After only 5 years, we've managed to touch the lives of over 6 million people in need. Our products are in use by some of the top health plans and Hospitals in the country such as BlueCross BlueShield and Johns Hopkins Healthcare.

We support diverse individuals and communities in need. We believe it’s crucial to build a team that is equally diverse. We enjoy meeting people who share in our commitment to cultivate thoughtful and safe work environments, and understand the meaning and importance of our mission. We encourage individuals from marginalized and underrepresented communities to apply!
