At Collective Health we're modernizing employer-sponsored health insurance and building the first healthcare solution that is highly scalable, accurate, and with which people look forward to interacting.

Running health insurance plans entails complex administrative tasks requiring automation and the creation of intuitive interfaces for a wide range of internal processes such as rules for processing claims or managing coordination of benefits and prior authorization.

You’ll need to be resourceful, able to think creatively, contribute across multiple code bases and platforms, and excited to tackle complex data sets and processes. The software solutions you build may range from designing and implementing domain specific languages that can configure and manage plan designs to building systems that utilize OCR and text analysis to automate data entry. Our tech stack is a distributed system of Java, Scala and Python components with React and Angular frontends. Our infrastructure is based on AWS, Postgres, Docker, and Kubernetes.
