Senior Front-End Developer

Boston, MA
FT (Remote Ok)
We’re looking for a senior front-end developer to join us as part of the founding team to create & scale our core platform. Marigold Health exists to give every patient with a mental health or substance use condition (~25% of all American adults) a place to feel heard.

The product is a mobile platform for chat-based support groups with a natural language processing (NLP) backend that automatically directs and visualizes clinically relevant sentiment within messages to inform providers. We sell directly to provider systems and payors so the most underserved patients can get 24/7, culturally competent support at no cost. Our NLP gives clinicians a 7-10x gain in patient capacity - allowing them the bandwidth to scale to the true magnitude of the mental health crisis.

The current team has roots in Johns Hopkins, and the clinical merit of our work has been recognized by organizations ranging from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to the American Psychiatric Association. We recently closed a seed round with top-tier VCs such as Felicis Ventures, General Catalyst, and Rock Health. We're already working with a range of providers, from a community mental health center, to a nationally-recognized psychiatric facility.

We’re seeking someone meticulous & creative to join our founding team FT.      

As a senior front-end developer, you’ll turn designs into pixel-perfect, buttery smooth UIs across both mobile and web platforms. You can be based anywhere in the continental US or India, and we will schedule regular trips to our HQ in Boston.

Our Boston HQ has 3 working FT, with additional team members distributed. We value empathy, creativity, independent thinking, diversity, candor, and ambition.
