Headquarters: San Francisco


We're looking for an experienced backend-end developer to join us, especially someone with several years of experience building and shipping complex applications.

Our development team is a small group of very capable engineers and we like to balance building thoughtfully with getting things shipped. The position offers the opportunity to deeply understand our problem space and channel compassion for the experiences of older adults and the challenges of caregiving into building a mission-driven, elegant, and intuitive product.

Technologies we use: Scala, Play Framework, Protobuf, Kubernetes, Postgres. You don’t need to have specific experience in all of these, but the ability & self-motivation to learn them is a must.

We offer market competitive compensation based on experience and ability, including significant equity option grants. Other benefits include excellent health, dental, vision coverage, 401K, One Medical, Talkspace, HealthAdvocate, Teladoc memberships, and flexible vacation days. The whole team works remotely.

  • 5+ years professional experience as a software engineer familiar with shipping thoughtfully built APIs
  • Experience working in engineering organizations and familiarity with software development cycles
  • Ability to thrive in a startup environment that’s full of ambiguity - experience balancing tradeoffs to make complex decisions where there is no ‘right’ answer
  • Good communication and personal skills; ability to interact and work well with the team
  • Interest in development of company culture and its reflection in our engineering practices
  • Ability & desire to mentor other engineers
