Lead Full Stack Engineer - Payments

Collective Health, San Mateo, CA | Lehi, UT | Chicago, IL | Remote

Leading the healthcare evolution

We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical. 

We're modernizing employer-sponsored health insurance and building the first healthcare solution that people actually look forward to interacting with. We believe that with a modern software stack, a small, dedicated team can replace entrenched 5000-person incumbents.

As an engineering team, we believe good code is easy to read and understand. We expect all of our engineers to continually teach as well as learn. As a company, we care about creating a culture of diversity, openness, and transparency, while engaging our intellectual curiosity and problem solving skills. We place a high priority on the overall member experience, including customer support (you shouldn't have to wait on hold ever), legal language (you shouldn't have to be a lawyer to read your health plan), and intuitive web design.

We've got a ton of interesting problems to solve around distributed systems, data pipelines, data analytics and predictions, system reliability, security, privacy, finance, and more. If you're passionate about tackling hard problems while making a real difference in the world, we'd love to talk!

What you will do:

  • Become an essential part of a cross-functional team of highly skilled engineers
  • Build software tools to empower internal teams
  • Help push forward the development of the engineering department as a whole
  • Help lead the continued design and development of our Payments platform
  • Support our Financial Management & Payments team in their handling of billions (with a B) of dollars in transactions.

  • Is well-versed in technologies such as Java, Spring, & React

Our Tech Stack 

Our backend services follow microservices architecture using Java and Spring Boot. We use cloud services (AWS) as our backbone, with Kubernetes and Docker for our orchestration. We use PostgreSQL for our databases, and Python & Spark for large scale data workloads. For the frontend, we have a React-driven architecture.

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.
