About Alto

We’re building a new kind of pharmacy to cure one of our healthcare system’s most startling ills: over 50% of prescriptions are never picked up. Because staying on track with doctor’s orders requires more than just delivering pills, we’re managing everything from insurance logistics to pricing, late-night questions to supply chain, and anything else that could stand in the way of effective treatment. Our more than 800 employees are dedicated to fulfilling medicine’s true purpose: to improve the quality of life for everyone who needs it. We’ve filled over 1 million prescriptions to date. To aid our calling, we’ve raised $354 million in funding, and we’re on track to achieve $1 billion in annual recurring revenue (ARR) by 2021. Join us as we prove just how much a pharmacy can deliver.

We use advanced technology and human empathy to advance a broken pharmacy industry into the modern era, and to make high-quality healthcare accessible to all. As an Alto Engineer, you will have the opportunity to build across the breadth of our products -- from our patient mobile application to our provider web dashboard to internal tools for our home grown pharmacy management system called Wunderbar. Our mission at Alto is to fulfill medicine’s true purpose—to improve quality of life—for everyone who needs it. We are building the best pharmacy for everybody, everywhere.

About the Role

You are a generalist who owns projects from end-to-end, enjoys problem-solving, and values the impact your work makes on our patients. You always put the patient experience first. You are scrappy and resourceful, unafraid to dive into an unknown project but humble enough to make mistakes and iterate. You thrive on speed and wearing many hats, and you enjoy working on different parts of the tech stack (we use Ruby on Rails, React, React Native, and Go).

Within your 1st month, you will ship small features to Alto’s products. You’ll familiarize yourself with our tech stack, code review process, and codebase to learn how everything connects together. You’ll also shadow our Pharmacy Operations, Patient Care, and Fulfillment Teams to understand Alto from every perspective, and you’ll even speak to real patients on a support call. By your 2nd month,  you will contribute to the planning, scoping, and code of a larger project. By your 3rd month, you’ll possess the confidence and skill set to own and ship a large project or feature. You’ll feel comfortable within our codebase and be able to tackle bugs independently.

Accelerate your Career as You work on Projects such as:

  • Optimizing our fulfillment and delivery processes
  • Scaling existing services for each of our pharmacy locations
  • Automating manual processes wherever possible

A Bit About You:

  • Have 5+ years of experience writing production code
  • Experience and an interest in both the front and back ends of the stack
  • Are familiar or excited to learn/code with several programming languages and web frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Javascript, React, React Native, Go, or Python
  • Thrive in a dynamic fast-paced environment where you own products from start to finish, and make decisions quickly and independently
  • Believe in Alto’s mission and embodies our company values
