Atlanta Metropolitan Area /
Engineering – Engineering /
This is a Co-Op opportunity for current college students only who attend a school that provides academic credit for participating in the alternating 3-term co-op program. If you are no longer in school, please consider our full-time Software Engineering opportunities.


At Patientco, we are building the future of healthcare payments. We now facilitate patient payments for 5% of the US population which means our technology is helping create a better payment experience for over 30 million patients and in turn, providing incredible value to healthcare providers across the U.S.  

We're looking for a 3-Semester Application Engineer Co-Op who wants to make a difference at a fast-growing Healthcare IT startup.  We run an agile development team with weekly sprints to quickly deliver code to our clients. Our team prides itself on rapid development, so as a Co-Op, your code will make it to production many times during your term. That's right, at Patientco, our Co-Ops actually push code into production.

The Opportunity
We're looking for students interested in the alternating 3-semester Co-Op program beginning in either the Spring or Summer of 2022.

As a Co-Op, you will be like any other Software Engineer on the team. We expect you to design, develop and test new features and enhancements on our platform. To do that, you will work with peers, Team Leads, Manager, Directors and the VP of Engineering along with the wider business to build web-scale products.  

Working knowledge of Linux, MySQL and/or any object-oriented design (PHP, Java, .Net, Ruby) is a plus. But if you're missing one of those and you're eager to learn, we'll teach you what you need to know!

The following are some of the technologies we currently use:

    • Languages: Golang/PHP7/Ruby/Javascript
    • Javascript Frameworks: AngularJS/VueJS
    • Database: MySQL
    • Deployment: Kubernetes on AWS, using Jenkins
    • Development Tools: Atlassian Suite (JIRA, Confluence, Bamboo)

    • As a Patientco engineer, its likely you'll touch them all. We're always evolving too, so maybe you'll help us add a new one to the list!

How we take care of the people who work here:

• An open and casual company environment that values excellent communication and collaboration skills, creative problem solving, empathy, open mindedness, extreme attention to detail, a healthy dose of grit and a good sense of humor
• Full Benefits package including health/dental/vision/401K, budget for continued education, and more
• Yearly budget for continuing education

Research shows that women (and folks from other marginalized groups) apply to 20% fewer jobs than men because they feel like they need to meet 100% of the listed criteria. On the other hand, men are more likely to apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria. If you think you have what it takes for this role, but don’t necessarily meet every single criteria, please get in touch with us. We’d love to chat and see if you could be a great fit.
