About us: 

We’re on a mission to fundamentally transform mental healthcare accessibility. Grow Therapy empowers therapists to launch and grow thriving insurance-accepting private practices. We’re creating game-changing technology to build America’s biggest behavioral healthcare group and ensure that anyone can afford quality mental healthcare. Following the mass increase in depression and anxiety, the need for accessibility is more important than ever.

To make our vision for mental healthcare a reality, we’re building a team of entrepreneurs and mission-driven go-getters. Our founders come from Harvard Medical School, Stripe, and Blackstone, and are champions of balancing bold ambitions with a culture that promotes holistic well-being. Since launching in 2020, Grow has raised over $90M from top VCs and angel investors, including TCV, Transformation Capital, SignalFire, Village Global, CoFound, and leaders of Oscar, Nurx, Quartet, Airbnb, and Blackstone.

About the Role

As a staff software engineer at Grow Therapy, you’ll have a huge amount of scope and autonomy. You get to see a number of different product surface areas (provider portal, marketplace, client experience, infrastructure, and enabling operations) in addition to working full-stack (Flask/Python on the backend, React/TypeScript on the frontend, infrastructure on AWS).


What you'll do

  • Making a robust cost estimation and eligibility checking platform - You’ll pull in data from different sources and implement the logic and infrastructure that allows us to give cost estimates for every insurance type our providers accept.

  • Creating a world-class note-taking experience for providers - Notes are where our providers spend most of their day! You’ll own the full-stack experience of notes syncing, intelligent prefilling, and caching notes to create a best-in-class experience.

  • Optimizing search ranking and performance at scale - there are hundreds and soon to be thousands of providers who accept many different insurance types, have unique backgrounds, and differing amounts of availability. Help us create a search algorithm that matches clients with the right therapist for them!

Who you are

  • 5+ years in engineering. You’ve built and scaled systems, made complex engineering decisions, and have proved out your technical skills in industry.

  • Entrepreneurial spirit. You have worked in a startup or on your own side projects and built products from the ground up.

  • Product thinker. You want to build through a user-centric lens and be involved not only in engineering decisions but product and design decisions as well.

  • Leader. You have experience mentoring younger engineers formally and informally. You help set best practices for the team.

  • Team Player. You are collaborative by nature, relish in camaraderie and group wins, and are looked to by colleagues as a steadfast partner and source of encouragement

  • Highly Motivated. You want ownership of your work.
