Backend Engineer - Membership Platform at Collective Health
San Francisco, CA, US
At Collective Health, we're modernizing employer-sponsored health insurance and building the first healthcare solution that people actually look forward to interacting with. We believe that with a modern software stack, a small, dedicated team can replace entrenched 5000-person incumbents.

The number of new clients and members we support is set to grow exponentially over the next few years. As a backend engineer on the Membership Platform team, you'll build resilient and flexible backend systems to scale our ability to onboard new companies and members onto our platform.

As an engineering team, we believe good code is easy to read and understand. We expect all of our engineers to continually teach as well as learn. Our company as a whole places a high priority on the overall member experience, including customer support (you shouldn't have to wait on hold ever), legal language (you shouldn't have to be a lawyer to read your health plan), and intuitive web design. We care deeply about diversity and inclusion and have worked to build a diverse team where everyone feels respected and supported.

What you’ll do:

Design a scalable and resilient member data import pipeline to be able to handle exponential member growth with confidence
Contribute to a microservices backend that runs our health benefits product
Design data models and workflows to store and use complex and highly configurable healthcare data
If you are looking for a challenge and most or all of the following items apply to you, please apply!

You collaborate and communicate well with engineers and product managers
You are excited about diving into complex technical domains
You enjoy mentoring and teaching others
You have 3+ years of software engineering work experience
You have experience with Java or another object-oriented language
You have a track record of developing well-tested software that relies on robots and continuous integration, not humans, to validate builds
Prior experience working in high security environments — e.g., payments — is a plus
Previous startup experience is a plus
