About the role

We’re on a mission to make behavioral health more available and accessible. We're backed by YCombinator, Craft, Zigg, and many others to make this dream a reality.

Building an inclusive culture is one of our core tenets as a company. We’re very aware of the structural inequalities that exist, and recognize that underrepresented minorities are less likely to apply for a role if they don’t think they meet all of the requirements. If that’s you and you’re reading this, we’d like to encourage you to apply regardless — we’d love to get to know you and see if there’s a place for you here!

About Our Mission

At Juniper, we're building software for behavioral health clinicians to improve quality of care. We streamline and replace manual efforts so clinicians can focus on what they do best: providing high-quality care.

We started Juniper because we care about impact — the lack of supply for behavioral healthcare means those who need it most cannot access it. We believe this is one of the biggest problems out there today. It’s why we’re tackling this broken industry, and why we want you on this mission with us.

About Our Culture

Our mission to change behavioral health starts with us and and how we operate. We don’t want to just change behavioral health, we want to change the way startups operate. Here are a few tactical examples:

  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion has been a priority since day 1. Currently, half of our leadership team (COO + CTO) identify as female, and our cap table includes over a dozen women. We still have a ways to go, but we’re committed to sourcing, hiring, and retaining talent from underrepresented folks in tech and outside of tech.
  • Behavioral health is something we live and breathe — all six members of the Juniper founding team see therapists every week, and we think you should too (we have a specific benefit to help with out-of-pocket costs)!
  • We have to have a sense of humor. Healthcare is so broken, it's depressing if you don't laugh with us.

About The Role

Our team is growing rapidly, and we’re looking for mission-driven engineers who care about creating positive impact, love solving challenging problems, and will thrive in the fast-paced start-up life. This person will work up and down our stack, propose and lead new projects, and help us define the company’s technical and product direction.

What you’ll do:

  • Architect and deliver end-to-end implementation of projects and features — this includes running experiments, scoping features, producing design docs, implementing, testing, and maintaining a scalable codebase.
  • Work with us to define and drive product features and technical direction of the company.
  • Collaborate with both technical and non-technical teammates across a wide range of functions, including mentoring.
  • Uphold security requirements and maintaining compliance with HIPAA security regulations.

What we’re looking for:

  • Growth mindset — a mentality of approaching unknowns with excitement, a penchant for learning new skills and technologies to solve new engineering challenges.
  • Alignment on company values — it’s the first chapter of our company story. You’ll be expected to cultivate and nurture existing values, and also play a lead role in shaping how it unfolds.
  • Throughput, velocity, and independence — an ability to drive and build projects from 0 to 1. To identify problems, build alignment, and implement solutions autonomously.
  • Prioritization of engineering as a craft — beyond implementation that meets functional requirements, also strives for implementation that is readable, maintainable, and scalable.

Juniper is based in New York City and are prioritizing in-person and hybrid candidates.

Why you should join Juniper

We’re on a mission to make behavioral health more available and accessible. We're backed by YCombinator, Craft, Zigg, and many others to make this dream a reality.

At Juniper, we build software for behavioral health clinicians to improve quality of care. We streamline and replace manual efforts so clinicians can focus on what they do best: providing high-quality care.

Behavioral health is broken. We think this is a problem worth solving, and we think we know how to solve it. Interested? Check out https://jobs.lever.co/juniperplatform.

We’re deeply rooted in the intersection of healthcare and technology — the founders were previously healthcare consultants (at McKinsey) and all have technical backgrounds (studied CS at Harvard, Columbia, and Cornell).

The engineering team brings a breadth of experience (AWS, Bloomberg, Headway) and went to top universities (Brown, Cornell). Our head of engineering previously led a team of 10 at AWS and is invested in building a first-class team of engineers with a focus on developing a diverse, inclusive, and supportive culture.

We started Juniper because we care about impact — the lack of supply for behavioral healthcare means those who need it most cannot access it. We see this as a once in a lifetime opportunity to fix a broken industry, and why we want you on this journey with us.
