About the role


Circle Medical is a Y-Combinator healthcare technology startup on a mission to bring quality, delightful primary care to everyone on the planet. Built by top-tier entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, and physicians, our telemedicine software has pioneered how people find and receive care. 

Our founding team has decades of experience with successful technology startup exits. We’ve used our most recent round of funding from WELL Health, backed by Sir Li Ka-shing, to scale from California to over fifteen states across the US. 

We’re now entering the hyper growth phase, expanding nationwide from over fifteen states to all fifty states in the next six months. And this is only the beginning.

More about us can be found on our website.


We are currently looking for a Fullstack Engineer to join our Team based out of our office in Montreal, Quebec. Hybrid or remote possibilities may be considered for the right candidate.

  • Design APIs used by the mobile app.
  • Integrate third-party APIs.
  • Write secure, HIPAA-compliant software.
  • Contribute to the engineering culture and hiring.
