About the role

What we do

We’re fixing one of the most broken and costly pieces of the US healthcare system: medical billing.

Today, healthcare providers spend over $250B each year on administrative overhead just to get paid by insurance. Medical billing is expensive because it’s nuanced and hard - maybe ~100x harder than credit card payment processing - and because it’s traditionally done by armies of humans who track and manage complex rules and processes specific to individual insurance companies with little or no supporting software.

We’re rethinking medical billing from the ground up, building software backed by best-in-class data science (and, soon, a dash of machine learning) to automate much of this complexity so healthcare providers can get paid dramatically more easily and inexpensively.

We were in the Y Combinator W20 batch and have since been well funded by a world-class group of funds (8VC, First Round Capital, BoxGroup) + angel investors. We're now helping our customers -- >10x more than we had back in YC -- treat opioid addiction, provide holistic care for women (Tia), provide equitable access to birth control (The Pill Club), lose weight, increase access to mental health care, and much more. This is such important and gratifying work; we can't wait for you to join our team and help support some of the most important innovation happening in healthcare today!

Our Values

We spend at least as much time with our coworkers as we do with our closest friends + family - if we intend to do the most important + challenging work of our lives, it’s important that these folks energize us, support us, inspire us, and push us to do our best work. This is what you can expect of your teammates at Candid:

  • Persistence + ownership of outcomes. We wear many hats and aren’t afraid to run through walls to solve hard problems.
  • Personal + professional growth. We push ourselves to learn new things and embrace challenges, even if it means - that we sometimes fail. We value and react quickly to constructive feedback.
  • Prioritization of mental + physical health. We work really hard, but this is a marathon, not a sprint. When we’re in the office, we home-cook healthy meals for lunch. When we’re sheltering at home, we check in on each others’ sleep + exercise at each daily standup. We’re not shy about talking about our feelings and emotional wellbeing during 1:1s.
  • Embracing diversity. We build better products, have a better chance of fixing broken parts of the US healthcare system, and enjoy our work more when we bring more perspectives to the table. We’re excited to work with folks from underrepresented backgrounds and who otherwise look or think differently than we do.

What You'll Be Doing

  • You’ll contribute to Candid Health’s product development.
  • You’ll ensure there is UX consistency across various pages/components within the Candid app.
  • You’ll interact closely with our current + prospective customers, developing intuition around their biggest pain points and thinking of creative ways to address them.
  • You’ll play a critical role in shaping our engineering + broader company culture and help make this the best place we’ve ever worked.
  • You’ll ensure we’re using the most relevant front end libraries and tooling.
  • You'll have opportunities to build tooling and improvements for front-end dev ops.
  • You’ll be responsible for front end profiling and monitoring.

Who You Are

  • You have Bachelors of Science or Bachelors of Arts/Sciences in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Mathematics, or similar degree.
  • You have 4+ years of experience in a Software Engineering position.
  • You have experience with HTML, CSS, React, Typescript, and API development.
  • You may have experience with server-side rendering, GraphQL, Tailwind, Firebase, and Codegen.
  • You have great instincts around UX / Design.
  • You take pride in your craft and enjoy building high-quality software but also believe that “done is better than perfect” and have good intuition around which corners are worth cutting and which aren’t.
  • You have a learner’s mindset and value teaching others.
  • You have a customer-first mindset.
  • You’re a clear and concise communicator; you enjoy the challenge of explaining complicated ideas in simple terms, both in-person and in writing.
