We are a hybrid, remote-friendly culture, with our company headquarters based in San Francisco. Candidates anywhere in the US are encouraged to apply.

About Us:

Ambience Healthcare’s mission is to supercharge healthcare providers with AI superpowers.

The most painful part of a provider’s day consists of hours of late-night administrative work, writing detailed documentation in the medical record for each of their visits. We’re starting to see the consequences of this widespread documentation burden: providers are burning out and resigning from their careers in medicine at record rates. Until now, healthcare systems have been unable to find any solutions that work.

Ambience's flagship product, Ambience AutoScribe, is a fully automated AI medical scribe that captures the nuances of provider-patient conversation in real-time into comprehensive medical documentation within the EMR, so providers can focus on what matters most: caring for patients. The product is used by our providers every single day, and for the first time in years, they are able to get home on time for dinner without any documentation homework. Now, our providers refuse to practice without AutoScribe.

At Ambience, you’ll be surrounded by an exceptional team of A-players who are kind, humble, curious, and deeply aligned with the core mission of improving the lives of providers and their patients, including:

  • 2nd time founders in healthcare who previously built a virtual care platform
  • the author of a leading deep learning textbook
  • co-founder of Cruise’s ML platform team
  • co-founder of Rev.com’s automated speech recognition team
  • former head of growth from a leading tech-enabled primary care group

As we experience tremendous pull from the market for our product and on the heels of an oversubscribed Series A round (backed by a16z, Human Capital, and OpenAI, amongst others), we’re actively growing the team across sales, marketing, product, engineering, clinical, and customer success functions.

The Role:

As a Staff Frontend Software Engineer you will design, build, and maintain the core application that healthcare providers leverage every single day as they care for patients.

In the first 6 months, you’ll help define and execute on the vision for how providers record visits, review & edit AI-generated documentation, and sync data into the electronic medical record. You’ll also be responsible for ensuring that our client applications are performant and reliable, even in environments with low internet connectivity. As a technical leader, you can expect to be spending about 25-30% of your time coaching and mentoring other engineers, accelerating their professional development.

What You’ll Do:

  • Architect, build, evolve, and maintain the frontend platform of Ambience’s products
  • Work closely with design & product leadership to scope and coordinate high impact product opportunities
  • Lead implementation of key product initiatives with high strategic value, accelerating speed of learning & iteration against while preventing accumulation of technical debt
  • Improve the reliability and performance of frontend applications, even in settings with limited (or zero) internet connectivity
  • Debug complex issues that may arise throughout the stack
  • Hold the codebase to a high standard, and assist in developing engineering process that encourages shipping high quality, reliable code 
  • Establish best practices for testing and monitoring usage metrics of complex frontend applications 
  • Coach and develop mid-level engineers on our team 

Who You Are: 

  • You have spent 6+ years working on complex frontend applications, especially on 0->1 product initiatives
  • You have extensive knowledge of browser internals, web APIs, common web frameworks, and modern JavaScript/TypeScript toolchains
  • You have experience building or contributing to JavaScript/TypeScript developer tools
  • You value attention to detail, especially around performance, accessibility, reliability and security
  • You’re willing and able to flex down the stack in order to take projects to the finish line
  • You enjoy coaching and mentoring other engineers, but are also excited to still roll up your sleeves and write code
  • You hold teams to a high standard of quality and execution speed, as demonstrated through your prior experience as a cross-functional technical leader and/or engineering manager.
  • You have a demonstrated ability to own execution of ideas from inception through to successful outcomes
  • You’re excited to lead an ambitious, mission-aligned team that delivers breakthrough product experiences
  • You enjoy coaching and mentoring others, but are also excited to still roll up your sleeves and execute as well
  • You are a low-ego team player who prioritizes co-discovering the best ideas, even if they’re not your ideas
  • You value being a kind, encouraging, and supportive teammate to others
  • You thrive in environments with high levels of complexity, uncertainty, and ambiguity

Not sure if you meet all of the qualifications? We don’t expect every candidate to have done everything listed above, and we're excited to work with candidates who are eager to grow and develop their skills.


The base compensation range for the role is: $150,000 - $250,000, with the addition of significant equity. 

We’ve intentionally allocated a wider range so that candidates have more flexibility to choose the desired cash/equity split that works for them. Philosophically, we lean towards generous equity grants so that our team truly gets to share in the impact they create.

Are you outside of the range? We encourage you to still apply: we take an individualized approach to ensure that compensation accounts for all of the life factors that matter for each candidate.
