About the role:

The Core EHR team supports the tools and workflows used by the hundreds of Included Health clinicians providing virtual care for our patients. The team’s mission is to (1) enable efficient, high-quality, and safe clinician-patient interactions, and (2) facilitate team-based care within our EHR (Electronic Health Record). We aspire to empower our clinicians to operate seamlessly and efficiently, so that they can focus on delivering the best care possible for our members and patients. We want clinicians to feel such satisfaction with the tools they are provided with that they nearly take them for granted. Our EHR will work for our clinicians regardless of what practice(s) they are a part of and allow team collaboration throughout the entire clinical organization.

We are seeking a Senior Backend Software Engineer to join our growing Engineering team to help lead development of our products in a fast, accessible, and intuitive way. You will closely partner with our Product and Design teams on application design, user experience, developer workflows, deployment strategies, and testing of the applications.

  • You optimize for impact over progress and love getting stuff done.

  • You are an exceptional problem solver utilizing first-principles thinking.

  • You enjoy a solid technical debate with smart, thoughtful peers.

  • You tend to become a subject matter expert in any code you dive into, and demonstrate strong product ownership in your team’s work.

  • You have a solid understanding of full-stack web development, including modern frontend frameworks, APIs, and backend services.

  • You consider yourself a high growth individual, continuously looking to recognize growth areas and improve in both technical and non-technical skills.

  • You are eager to learn from feedback, and in turn give your peers feedback that helps the team grow together.

What you’ll do:
  • Partner with product managers to lead the technical planning of ambitious clinician experience improvements.

  • Contribute across the full stack of web technology, frontend, API, backend.

  • Design systems that span multiple services to enable consistent, fast, clean data flow.

  • Own the development of features critical to how our clinicians provide behavioral health and virtual primary care.

  • Integrate our clinical data with other systems (both internal and external) so that our patients experience a seamless and connected healthcare journey.

  • Swiftly address any issues and invest in resolutions that improve the product’s reliability going forward.
