About Us
We are a cross-disciplinary team of Health Care, Technology, and Medical experts with several exits (IPOs and Acquisitions) in the past. We are a Series A startup funded by top tier investors. We are currently in stealth-mode and will be launching publicly soon! 

Why Transcarent?
Work with purpose. Join us in empowering consumers with better information and service so they can make the best health and care choices for themselves.
Join a world-class founding team with several IPOs and Acquisitions in their past.
Be an early part of our founding product team to shape our product strategy, experience and culture.

The Opportunity
The United States spends twice as much as the average OECD country on health care but has the lowest life expectancy and one of the highest hospitalization rates among these countries. Over the past 50 years, health care costs have grown much faster than inflation even as consumer satisfaction with the health insurance and hospital industry continues to remain low. 
 
We believe that Health care needs to be redesigned as a consumer-centric service. Like every other industry, we believe that empowering members with accurate and accessible information about care, quality, and pricing will drive the most optimal choices. 
 
About this role
Health care is a complex ecosystem. We work with employers (our clients), employees (our members), doctors (our service providers), insurance companies, and many other partners (e.g. urgent care clinics) to deliver care to our members. We are redesigning this experience to be frictionless and fully integrated, so you can make reservations, talk to a doctor, get your medication, etc. with a tap on your App. 
 
In this role, you will... 

Deeply understand the healthcare ecosystem and tame gnarly integrations
You will build the products to integrate highly fragmented and dispersed health care services as an end-to-end experience.
 
Help set the technology foundation for our microservices and DevOps
You will define our architecture and ensure that our technology approach meets short-term agility needs and sets us up to scale and evolve long term. 
 
Collaborate with product, operations, and clinical teams to rewire health care
You will work across various teams to appreciate the full impact of your technical choices and understand how your work can impact millions of lives on a daily basis.
