Software Engineer at Savvy
About the role
Savvy is solving one of the fundamental issues with US healthcare - employer-sponsored health insurance. In the US, your employer chooses your healthcare. Everyone is failed by this arrangement - it is bad for employers, bad for employees, and bad for the entire healthcare system. Savvy is building the first benefits platform to give employees flexible health budgets instead of pre-selected health benefits packages.
We have found traction with our early product and are looking to hire an experienced full-stack engineer to join our founding team. You will work alongside the technical co-founder and own the delivery of high-impact, core product features to accelerate the business. This could include payments infrastructure, recommendation engines, high-quality user interfaces, and more. You will be joining the founding team and wearing many hats - engineering, product, design, operations, customer support - a key partner in every part of the business.
Who we are looking for
Our ideal candidate is experienced in building and shipping complete features, has worked in a fast-paced startup environment, and is fluent with web technologies. You will involved in the full product development cycle - speaking with customers, defining new features, breaking down and executing engineering tasks. The founding team is based in SF, but is currently remote and embracing a fully-remote option for all future employees. Experience with fintech, insurance, and healthcare is great, but a willingness to dive deep into this fascinating and complex industry is all that's required.

What we are doing
Savvy is solving one of the fundamental issues with US healthcare - employer-sponsored health insurance. In the US, your employer chooses your healthcare. Everyone is failed by this arrangement - it is bad for employers, bad for employees, and bad for the entire healthcare system.
Countless health and policy experts identify this as one of the "original sins" of the dysfunctional US healthcare system. For the first time in US history, new regulations allow companies to offer tax-advantaged health budgets to employees instead of pre-selecting health benefits packages. Savvy is building the first benefits platform to facilitate this new way of offering health benefits.
It may sound small, but the implications are huge. When consumers control their budgets the market has to compete for their business. Employees get transparency, choice, and flexibility. It opens up a path for innovative new entrants to find early adopters and better aligns incentives for the entire healthcare system.
Where we are
We launched earlier this year and are seeing consistent weekly growth with minimal sales and marketing. We now have over 50 employers on the platform and are hiring to accelerate our growth. We are backed by Precursor Ventures and notable industry angels such as founders of One Medical and Indeed.com.
We are building our founding team team and hiring across all functions. Our backgrounds include schools like Stanford, Princeton, and Dartmouth. Our experience includes leading the insurance team at Primer AI, engineering leadership at Inkling, and McKinsey.
Employers do not want to be involved in their employees healthcare - and only do because a WW2 era tax loophole set a precedent that continues to this day. Employees want (and need) better healthcare options. We can deliver on both of these, and the opportunity in front of us is immense.
