About Eden Health
Eden Health provides simple, tech-enabled primary care sold directly to employers. Our users enjoy immediate access to care over the Eden Health app, in our private clinics, and directly in their offices. We have transformed healthcare from an unpleasant necessity to a delightful experience focused on improving the lives of patients. The proof is in the outcomes; when companies work with us they have healthier workforces, increased productivity, and reduced healthcare costs.

What you will be doing
We are looking for curious, pragmatic and capable engineers who want to see the outcome of their work help people. You will join a small team of full stack engineers that is laying the foundation of Eden Health’s future. Our engineers work closely with product, design, and clinical teams to define problems and build effective solutions. 
You will join in on ownership of the engineering discipline: working to build not only our products, but our culture and processes. You will not be hesitant to jump in and fix things because you take responsibility for sustainable engineering.  Technical problem solving appeals to you, but you will also create space for your colleagues to demonstrate the same. We all learn and grow to achieve goals that can never fit in a job description.

What success looks like

    • Join the Product Engineering team as a seasoned engineer to build and improve our software across the entire stack.

    • Build an understanding of our business, and our unique approach to health care so that your technical decisions impact the course of the company.
    • Help establish Eden Health as a professional, high quality engineering organization through contributions to open source, blogs, conference talks, etc.

What you will bring

    • You are capable of spanning our entire development stack (React, and React Native on the frontend with Python and Clojure on the back-end), but place an emphasis on the back-end.
    • You set a high bar for technical excellence, and you want to help your peers achieve it.
    • You are able to anticipate technical and operational risks, and can help mitigate them.
    • You have depth with more than one back-end language or framework, and you have experience shipping into production.
