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. 

We deliver a connected healthcare experience for over 200,000 members and 45+ companies across the nation who want the best for their employees. If you want to make a difference in the healthcare of those around you, join us.

While we are embracing a remote-flexible work week, employees are expected to be within commuting distance of an office. The frequency of in-office days will be determined on a team-by-team basis closer to the reopening of our offices.

About the work

Product Engineers at Collective Health build new features into our award-winning web applications. You should have basic knowledge of the core building blocks of the web – HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You’ll develop new features for existing web applications, learn about best practices, help improve our test coverage, learn how to debug and troubleshoot issues deep into our stack, and collaborate with other engineers and designers on a daily basis.

As an example of what you’ll be doing, here are some activities typical to our product engineers:

  • Integrate APIs developed by our backend team, as well as partner APIs to create a seamless experience for members
  • Write unit and integration tests to validate our products and improve their quality
  • Build the frontend products used by our operations team, employers, members, and partners
  • Use our Design System components, primitives, and tokens to build beautiful UIs
  • Trace bugs deep into our stack with the senior engineers on your team to provide the right team with the information needed to resolve them
  • Gain new expertise across our stack as we introduce new technologies
  • Pair program with Senior engineers to tackle complex problems

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 someone with a solid foundation in software engineering and the drive to build on that foundation in a collaborative, professional setting. You will most likely need help to get the job done, and that’s okay. It’s expected, and we’re happy to do it. 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 curiosity, empathy, 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.

Founded in 2013, Collective Health has created an ecosystem of innovative partners across care and benefits delivery, as well as built a powerful and flexible infrastructure to better enable employees and their families to understand, navigate, and pay for healthcare. By reducing the administrative lift of delivering health benefits, providing an intuitive member experience, and improving health outcomes, the company guides employees toward healthier lives and companies toward healthier bottom lines. Collective Health is headquartered in San Mateo, CA with locations in Chicago, IL, and Lehi, UT. For more information, please visit collectivehealth.com.
