About the role

About Float

Float Health is a Y Combinator W22 alum, seed stage, health-tech startup looking for a product-minded software engineer. Float brings a nurse to your home when you're sick. We are building a marketplace to move more healthcare from the hospital to the home where it is easier, safer and cheaper.

We use Go for our back-end and Vue.js on the frontend, so ideally we are looking for someone with experience with both or at least one of these. In addition to the technical requirements, we are looking for someone who naturally writes clean, simple code.

As a company, we are growing very quickly, so it is also important our product grows efficiently with minimal technical debt. We are a new company, so most of the work is on new features.

You would have a lot of responsibility and also an amazing opportunity at a fast-growing YC-backed company.

About You

  • Software engineer with startup experience
  • Growth mindset to execute on ideas quickly
  • Excellent problem-solving and prioritizing skills
  • Self-driven, ability to lead various product initiatives
  • Strong sense of ownership and accountability
  • Quick learner and adaptable to a fast-growing startup


  • Design, develop and maintain efficient, scalable and reliable code
  • Keep everyone focused on our core metrics and how to impact them
  • Collaborate with internal teams and our users to ensure we support their needs
  • Be a thoughtful source of technical knowledge and requirements to the team
  • Complete code reviews, documentation and testing


  • 6+ years of experience as a Software Engineer
  • Experience taking a problem through to a deployed solution within hours
  • Experience working with database systems and writing efficient SQL
  • Experience designing maintainable systems, APIs and integrations
  • Experience creating intuitive and beautiful interfaces
  • BS or MS in Computer Science, Engineering or equivalent

These are not hard and fast requirements, but they do describe the type of person who will be the best fit for us right now. We will have a wider variety of roles in the future for anyone with less experience.


The majority of our team is remote, but we have recently seen huge progress from working in the same co-working space in Boulder, CO. Preference will be given to anyone in the Boulder/Denver area but ultimately looking for the best person to join the team.

We start all positions as a contract for 3 months that can then transition into a full-time employee if there’s a great mutual fit.

About Float Health

Float brings a nurse to your home when you’re sick. If you have a chronic illness, instead of making you come to an overcrowded hospital full of sick people, we bring the best of the hospital to you.

We are creating a new category of work for nurses. And we're looking for our first engineers and operations stars to join us.
