Title: Software Engineer (Rails)
Date Posted: 2017-05-12
Location: New York
Our mission is to build a world where no one's health is hindered by their need. Over sixty percent of our health is determined by social needs like access to food, jobs, childcare, and housing. Right now, the way healthcare organizations address these problems is broken. We believe there is more to health than healthcare and we're fundamentally rethinking how healthcare organizations and communities work together to help people thrive.

We came from a background of working with vulnerable populations in Baltimore and are focused on building next generation technology to move the needle on healthcare outcomes and cost for these populations. Our products are used by the top health plans and health systems in the country to make sure their patients are connected to the social service resources they need.

We're backed by an incredible group of impact investors and VCs--from Kapor capital to Primary Venture Partners. Our team is made up of tenacious social workers, technologists, operators, and engineers, all united around our mission. We love people who are humble, dynamic, authentic, and results focused. Join us to solve some of the hardest problems in healthcare and build a better future.
