About the role

What you’ll be doing

  • You’ll conceptualize, design, build, and maintain complex services/platforms/features and develop ownership over large swaths of our product + infrastructure.
  • 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.

Who you are

  • You are completing a Bachelors of Science or Bachelors of Art in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Math or other similar degree.
  • 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.
  • Experience with the technologies we currently use is a plus, but by no means required: Python, PostgreSQL, Docker, Kubernetes, React, Typescript, Google Cloud Platform, Auth0, Terraform.
  • You enjoy owning features end-to-end and are comfortable learning new tools or moving across the stack to do so.
  • You have a customer-first and learner’s mindset, and value teaching others.
  • You’re a clear and concise communicator; you enjoy the challenge of explaining complicated ideas in simple terms, both in-person and in writing.

Why you should join Candid Health

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, using data science and machine learning to automate much of this complexity, so healthcare providers can get paid dramatically more easily and inexpensively.

Since finishing the Y Combinator W20 batch we've been funded by an incredible group of funds + angel investors. We have many more customers begging to use our product than we have bandwidth to serve, which is why we need you to help us scale!
