Lead Frontend Engineer (Chicago)

| Chicago

Collective Health’s mission is to transform people’s healthcare experience from confusing and complicated to empowering and trustworthy. We believe that with a modern software stack, a small dedicated team can replace entrenched 5000-person incumbents.

As the first frontend engineer in our Chicago office, you'll be working with a talented team of dedicated engineers and product managers in all phases of the product development process. 

You will work on:

  • Implementing new product features for our mainly greenfield projects
  • Building frontend platform components leveraged across our internal and external portals
  • Contributing to our overall front end architecture and development experience partnering with other front-end tech leads

If many or most of the following items apply to you, we'd love to talk.

  • 5+ years of professional Javascript development experience using ES6
  • Experience with a frontend framework(s), such as Backbone, Ember, Angular, or React
  • Experience developing websites consuming from various APIs
  • Consistent experience with unit testing
  • Knowledge of full development life cycle and computer science fundamentals
  • Experience with mentoring other engineers

Bonus points if you have:

  • Open Source contributions
  • Full stack experience
  • Angular expertise

If you love building web applications that display and perform beautifully across browsers and devices, are proud of the maintainable code that you produce, are passionate about learning while also helping others learn and want to take part in modernizing health insurance, then this is the place for you.

An Insider's view of Collective Health

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe here in the Chicago office is one of chill focus. For the most part, you'll hear the tapping of keys and some soft conversation, with the occasional bubbling over of laughter. We like to get our work done here, but we love getting to know one-another. We're always happy to step away for a chat over coffee or a game of foosball.

What does your typical day look like?

Daily work as an SRE includes anything that increases the reliability and stability of the Collective Health platform to make sure our customers have the best experience possible. Everything from huge cross-team initiatives like migrating to Kubernetes to really deep dives troubleshooting issues is possible - and I choose projects that interest me!

How does the company support your career growth?

People here really root for each other’s growth professionally and personally, and they show it by working alongside you to help you do more than you thought you could. We make sure there is space to learn as you work and try new things, and when you do well with them, you get concretely recognized for it.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We strive to foster a psychologically safe culture in order to feel free to share all our ideas, allowing even crazy whims and hunches to be molded and shaped by in-depth discussion and collaboration until they reach their full potential. No question is a stupid one, and we all have valuable input.

What are some social events your company does?

From the vaguely familiar whirlyball to the always-embarrassing karaoke happy hour, we like to keep things fun and not take ourselves too seriously. We’ve even subjected ourselves to a hot sauce eating challenge, just for fun. Our team also has a regular “game night” where we play anything from Settlers of Catan to Mario Kart.
