Healthcare is an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy. We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate, comprehend care choices, and practically impossible to understand what it costs. We believe that a dedicated group of engineers can apply modern technology to change all of this.
As an engineering intern at Collective Health, you'll develop systems that allow us to analyze trends, power our web portals, manage user data, process insurance claims, and keep our data secure. Our tech stack is a distributed system of Java and Node components with an Angular.js front end. Our infrastructure is based on Docker, CoreOS, and Postgres. We've got a ton of interesting problems to solve around distributed systems, data analytics and predictions, system reliability, security, privacy, and more.
Interns at Collective Health are involved in every aspect of our software development lifecycle, including designing systems, writing code, and deploying to production. As an intern, you'll be assigned a mentor who will help you learn about engineering at Collective Health and help you grow and improve as an engineer. Our engineering culture is collaborative and supportive, and we value learning from each other. We care deeply about diversity and inclusion and have worked to build a diverse team where everyone feels respected and supported.
We're looking for interns who are proficient in an Object-Oriented programming language, such as Java or Python. We prefer interns to have completed at least one software development internship before. We are looking for interns who are willing to learn, strive to improve, and excited to make a difference in health insurance in the US.

About Collective Health
While medical technology continues to take giant steps forward, somehow the systems driving health coverage are still stuck in the past. The experience we have today is confusing. It’s painful. And we all deserve better. Collective Health was founded on the belief that better is possible. Driven by our mission to make understanding, navigating, and paying for care effortless, we’ve evolved the way health benefits work. More than 155 million Americans count on an employer for coverage. That's why, with the technology to create a more intelligent solution and the compassion to know that every person matters, we deliver a connected healthcare experience for companies who want the best for their employees.
