About NexHealth

Our healthcare system is frustratingly analog. When you live in a world of one-tap car rides, meal delivery, and unlimited streaming, why do you have to call to schedule an appointment with a doctor and are still handed a clipboard to fill in a form? NexHealth's mission is to accelerate innovation in healthcare. We're doing this by connecting patients, doctors, and developers. We're the first to fully automate the integration with health record systems, paving the way for a new generation of disruptive healthtech companies.

Here's some of what we've accomplished:
$125M Series C at $1B valuation (April 2022)
Manage 68 million patient records
240%+ annual revenue growth
Offices in San Francisco, CA, and Silicon Slopes, UT

Engineering at NexHealth

Our engineering team needs to

Work with a highly-aligned engineering team committed to balancing productivity, quality, and stress in a way that lets NexHealth be incredibly successful while fitting into the lives of our team members
NexHealth is looking to change the way doctors and patients think about their health data and enable a modern customer experience for patients while meeting doctors and office staff at their current technology level; we are putting upward pressure on the acceptable patient experience in the marketplace
NexHealth's engineering team is still making critical design and architecture decisions that will affect our business for years to come-getting ahead of scaling and growth issues while we address our daily challenges will be a constant tension that will require sound, calm judgment and an adaptable mindset
Our problem requires us to build a unique and diverse set of software that presents novel challenges you probably haven't dealt with before.

What You'll Do

As a Software Engineer on the API team, you'll help expand our business by building APIs for companies that need access to EHR data and building the software that connects our customers' EHRs to the NexHealth platform. We're looking for engineers who can demonstrate expertise in several of the following areas:

Building fault-tolerant distributed systems that are easy for future engineers to understand, monitor, and reason about
Hacking together new and legacy systems to enable data access and unlock new functionality
Making decisions based on evidence and data, and collecting that evidence when needed, rather than relying on assumptions or hearsay
Communicating about your work, the consequences of your work for our customers, and what people should expect next, including likely decisions or adverse events
Minimizing threat surface area and anticipating vulnerabilities when making design decisions, even under stress
Delivering small units of value to production continuously, locking in gains so a change in priorities doesn't result in piles of unfinished work
Considering operational concerns when building software to ensure we can manage our technology ecosystem effectively
Handling incidents with discipline and a calm sense of urgency, using a risk-based response and concise, thoughtful communication
Holding the team accountable to high standards while boosting morale and driving toward shared goals
Promoting and enabling teammates and their careers while building redundancy and resiliency in capabilities and knowledge amongst team members

We have aggressive growth plans, so leadership skills are important for everyone as we help onboard new team members and face big and sometimes difficult decisions.

NexHealth Values

Do what's right for the customer. We believe that our customers are our bosses. This approach unites us as we ruthlessly prioritize our initiatives in the best interest of our customers.
Act like an owner. Job titles don't constrain us, and we are energized by going beyond the scope of our immediate role to achieve our goals. We take pride in exceeding expectations and believe we're each responsible for NexHealth's success.
Speak your mind (with positive intent). We need to grow really big really quickly in order to take the market and transform the healthcare industry. In order to fully realize our mission, we value direct and transparent communication to get to the truth as quickly as possible - even if that means challenging authority. That said, we don't tolerate brilliant jerks.
Think in first principles. Before taking action, we need to ensure we're solving the right problems. We question assumptions and consistently inquire "why" before pursuing solutions.
Play to win as a team. We act in the best interests of our customers, which means we need to be champions who hustle and demonstrate grit. In order to win, we play as a team - even if that means putting the group's needs before our individual interests. This is how we succeed together.
