At Collective Health, we're rebuilding American healthcare from the ground up, an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy. We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate, comprehend care choices, and practically impossible to understand what it costs. At Collective Health, we believe that a dedicated group of people can apply modern technology to change all of this.

As a new graduate software engineer, you will contribute to the design and development of our frontend web and mobile applications, and our backend systems. Our tech stack is a distributed system of Go, Node and Java components with Angular.js and React frontends. Our infrastructure is founded on container-based technologies (Docker, Kubernetes, CoreOS) and Postgres, and we love automated testing and continuous integration.

You will learn quickly, surrounded by experienced engineers in our downtown Chicago office. We expect all of our engineers to continuously learn, and share that learning across the team. We care deeply about diversity and inclusion and have worked to build a team where everyone feels respected and supported.

We have a ton of interesting problems to solve around distributed systems, data pipelines, data analytics and predictions, system reliability, security, privacy, and more. Find out more about one of our amazing teammates, Leah, who was featured in our 'Meet the Collective' series.

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

  • You’re nearing completion of a BS or MS in Computer Science or related field
  • You’ve been learning and using Java, the more the better
  • You are curious about modern distributed software systems, including cloud delivery, containerization, automation, and continuous integration
  • You like shell scripting
  • You are looking for a challenge and want to make a real difference in the world
Collective Health is a technology company working to create the healthcare experience we all deserve. Founded in 2013, our team of engineers, designers, product managers, and actuaries are redefining the $1 trillion market of employer-sponsored health benefits with data-driven and people-focused products. Our complete health benefits solution helps great companies like Activision Blizzard, Palantir, Restoration Hardware, and Pinterest take care of their people by harnessing the power of design and technology. Based in San Francisco, CA, we’re backed by some of the best investors in Silicon Valley including Google Ventures, Founders Fund, NEA, and Redpoint Ventures.

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.

Marc

Software Engineer

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!

Site Reliability Engineer

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.

Hannah

Software Engineer

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.

Matt

Software Engineer

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.

Senior Product Manager
