Job Title: Senior Software Engineer (backend)

Remote – US Only

About Vivante

Vivante Health is an innovative startup reinventing the way chronic conditions are managed. We’re filling the unmet needs of people with chronic conditions that are invisible, neglected or stigmatized, starting with digestive disease.

Why digestive? Because an astonishing 70 million people in the US are affected—that’s twice the number with diabetes and more than many other chronic conditions combined. Unlike other chronic conditions, though, digestive diseases often go untreated or misdiagnosed…because of stigma.

At Vivante, we think it’s time to bring digestive health to the forefront while providing REAL solutions to the millions who are struggling and don’t know where to turn. Our health management ecosystem, GIThrive, empowers people to spend less time worrying about their digestive symptoms and more time living life.

GIThrive works with our members (patients) to help identify and manage their digestive health conditions with personalized recommendations. Our platform also facilitates interactions with our world-class clinical team to blend our technology with real person-to-person relationships that support each patient throughout their individual journeys.

With a remote-first US and global workforce, backed by leading digital health investors, we’re changing the way healthcare is delivered.

Position Summary

We're looking for an experienced, solution-focused software engineer to support backend development of our GIThrive platform and various external data integrations. There will also be a lot of close collaboration with our Data Science team as we continue to evolve and integrate our AI program into our patient-centered experience. If you like designing, building and scaling cloud native systems and collaborating with other great engineers in a test-driven environment, please read on!

Our backend services are developed mostly in Go and run in GKE (k8s) or directly on other GCP serverless frameworks. The DevOps environment leverages a whole lot of GitHub and Terraform. Various test frameworks are used including Cucumber for BDD. Expertise in these areas is a huge plus, but having familiarity with similar technologies can be fine substitutes.

The ideal candidate is someone who can reason through the interactions of a complex system and deliver solutions that emphasize simplicity and reliability.

Why is this a great opportunity for a senior software engineer?

  • The problem domain and our approach to solving it is super compelling. We're bringing together data sources that have never been joined, building models of a GI patient that have never been built, and discovering new GI health insights that help real people to manage and support their real medical conditions.

  • It's still early enough that there’s a lot of decisions and new discoveries to be made, so this is your chance to get in early and help shape our future.

Other things about our environment you should be aware of:

  • We're still a small company, which means that everyone still wears a lot of hats and we need engineers who are comfortable with ambiguity and working across a wide variety of challenges. That said, our existing engineering team has built an extremely efficient working environment based on best-in-class hosted SaaS frameworks that greatly minimize the overhead in deploying and supporting software in production.

  • We're all really passionate about improving clinical outcomes for our members and truly advancing the GI health space. Most of us also have personal (direct/family/friend) connections to GI health problems. Whatever it is that fuels you, we're on a mission to build something much larger than ourselves here and looking for another partner in driving that mission forward.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Develop the kind of software that you’d want to inherit from another developer (documentation, test coverage, logging, metrics, etc.)

  • Collaborate with the rest of your engineering team on design, planning and code reviews

  • Partner with product stakeholders on ideation, feedback and refinement of solutions that meet our business needs

  • Keep learning

You'll be a good fit here if you are:

  • A team player. You like collaborating closely with other engineers, often through pair programming, design & code reviews

  • Empathetic to our members’ GI health conditions and are driven to improve their outcomes

  • Security oriented. We take the stewardship of our customer's healthcare data seriously, and take no shortcuts to protect it

  • Comfortable with a distributed workforce. We interact with each other via video chat, Slack and PR comments

  • A self motivated, creative problem solver

We are proud of the team culture that we foster today, which is extremely friendly and supportive while constantly reaching to raise our own standards of engineering. We're really excited about what we're building, and usually having fun building it together. If all of that sounds fun to you too, we'd love to meet you.

Desired Qualifications

  • Degree in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent experience

  • 4+ years of demonstrated experience building and supporting SaaS solutions

  • Proficiency with Golang and developing containerized workloads

  • Experience analyzing and optimizing system performance

  • An addiction to automated testing

  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal abilities with colleagues, business partners, and vendors alike

  • Bonus:

    • Familiarity with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) frameworks, including GKE, IAM (fundamentals), Firebase, Pub/Sub, Dataflow, Cloud Composer, BigQuery, AI Platform, DLP, or any others

    • Experience with medical, healthcare and/or population health data. Double bonus for familiarity with OHDSI, FHIR and/or other healthcare data standards

    • Experience working in a HIPAA regulated environment (or other regulated industry) and supporting data security and privacy controls

Vivante Health is an equal opportunity employer.

We believe safe spaces where everyone can be their authentic selves is the key to a successful team so we welcome and embrace all identities, cultures, and backgrounds.
