Senior Full-Stack Developer

Boston, MA
FT (Remote Ok)
We’re looking for a senior full-stack 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 group 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 creative & passionate to join our founding team FT.  

As a senior Full-Stack developer, you’ll design, develop, and maintain the full gamut of our existing applications and codebase. You can be based anywhere, and we will schedule regular trips to our HQ in Boston.

Inclusion is at the core of what we do. We’re working to bring care to the most underserved and stigmatized patients. We actively welcome applicants from a wealth of different backgrounds (including but not limited to race, gender, educational background, and sexual orientation). Unless we have diversity on our team and in our mindsets as we work together to move the needle on a deeply entrenched, systematic issue, we will fail.
