We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical. 

About the work

As a Frontend Engineer, you’ll be responsible for implementing seamless web experiences for our next generation healthcare platform. You should have expert knowledge of the core building blocks of the web – HTML, CSS, JavaScript and the Web APIs implemented across all browsers. You’ll find the root cause of bugs deep into our stack, write high-quality code, mentor junior product engineers, engage in high-level architecture discussions, and perform high-quality code reviews. You’re a lifelong learner and you enjoy teaching those around you.

As an example of what you’ll be doing, here are some activities typical to our Frontend Engineers:
  • Build beautiful products that match our design mocks with pixel perfection for both our internal and external customers

  • Trace bugs across the surface as well as deep into our stack to provide the right people with the information needed to resolve them

  • Learn new technologies or practices and regularly share them with your mentees and other coworkers

  • Mentor junior engineers through pair programming, code reviews, architectural discussions, troubleshooting, design documents, and other tools of the trade

  • Collaborate with a diverse group of engineers to find solutions to complex technical problems when not everyone agrees on the path forward

  • Work with designers and product managers to ensure feasibility of deadlines with compromise, thorough planning, and creative use of existing resources

Our stack consists of Java, Go, and Javascript microservices deployed as Docker containers running on Kubernetes. We use both React and AngularJS for our applications and deploy them via Cloudfront CDN. We use Svelte and Theo for our design system, and a slew of other open-source and internal libraries throughout our stack to manage everything from authentication to monitoring.

You’ll be working with an empathetic and collaborative team that is excited to answer your questions and share their wisdom with you. We expect you to do the same.

About you

We’re looking for a candidate who’s done this work before in a professional setting. You won’t be able to answer all of our questions or know how all of our systems work in your first week, and we don’t expect you to. If you haven’t used all of our stack before, that’s fine. You’ll learn on the job and get up to speed quickly.

We don’t have specific requirements on years of experience or degrees because we care more about what you can do, and how you do it. Some members of our team have CS degrees, others are self-taught, have unrelated degrees or graduated from a coding bootcamp. At Collective Health, we believe diversity in background is just one of many forms of diversity that make for a strong team. What we want is leadership, ownership, and accountability. 

We value people who are team-oriented, who constantly learn and more importantly, constantly teach. Above all, we want you to help us improve consistently over time.
