About Us
If you think healthcare is broken, we want you. If you think the solution is marrying old-fashioned clinical expertise and new-fashioned telehealth tech, we need you. At Candid, we’re doctors and data geeks, artists and changemakers, care specialists and tech futurists.

If you're ready to sharpen your skills, have a huge impact, and help solve healthcare, join us.


We’re building a best-in-class, vertically-integrated, consumer healthcare brand and are looking for an exceptional devops engineer who has both an interest in delivering delightful developer experiences and the proven ability to transform ideas into software reality. You will work across all levels of our stack, including infrastructure, architecture, and data. Your work will have a tangible, positive impact on the day to day of our internal teams, and the lives of our patients. 

We are only accepting applications for engineers who will sit in our NYC HQ or remote candidates who will work EST hours and are located in North America.

What You’ll Do
  • You will create, manage, and own the infrastructure and delivery of our core applications and integrations of third-party tools for our marketing, operations, and product teams
  • Individually, or with your team, you’ll identify areas to improve performance, scalability, reliability, and resilience of our systems, delivering thoughtful, robust solutions that anticipate future needs while meeting or exceeding expectations
  • You’ll develop your technical skills and provide technical leadership to teammates via constructive code reviews, mentoring, pairing, and generally exhibiting technical maturity in your approach to engineering and communication
  • You’ll have outsized impact by architecting and implementing solutions to problems that span engineering teams. You’ll push to production soon after hire, wear many hats, work on many parts of the stack, and grow a lot here. You’ll be surrounded by colleagues with deep experience in their fields who are passionate about doing great work and constantly learning
  • You’ll get your hands dirty in every repository in our organization


What We're Looking For
  • Growth mindset: you view discovering blind spots in your knowledge as growth opportunities to further your professional development in your journey as a software engineer; you view gaps in others’ knowledge as positive, coachable opportunities rather than irredeemable, static flaws
  • Mature problem-solver: you don’t rush to solve a problem without fully understanding the necessary context. You thoughtfully diagnose complex problems and develop durable, elegant solutions by yourself or with others. You don’t hesitate to seek assistance from others when you need it
  • Pride in the craft: you work effectively with others to design, build, and maintain high-quality applications for disparate audiences with disparate needs
  • Putting users first: you naturally consider the implications of your work and how it may impact our patients, doctors, internal teams, and other users of our applications. You understand that you don’t work or build in isolation and that your work has measurable impact, good or bad
  • Pragmatic idealist: you understand the practical needs of the business and are able to make well-reasoned trade-offs when and if needed, when prioritizing work, architecting solutions, or meeting deadlines. You’re not interested merely in building the next cool thing, but are adept at balancing the interplay between speed, cost, and quality in order to help Candid win
  • Empathetic communicator: you assume positive intent in all your interactions and communicate complex ideas clearly to varied audiences in an inclusive manner that engenders constructive dialogue or effective delivery of nuanced information. During disagreements, you set aside your personal feelings to engage mindfully with other perspectives and make compromises as needed to achieve greater outcomes


What You'll Need

  • 4+ years experience as a DevOps-focused engineer
  • High degree of proficiency in our infrastructure stack: AWS, Terraform, Python, Cloudflare
  • Fluency in the mechanics of the internet, including TCP/IP, DNS, caching, etc.
  • Bonus:
    • Experience gathering requirements and working with stakeholders to solve business problems
    • Demonstrated instincts around building reliable and scalable systems, balancing iteration speed with quality


Pay & Perks
