Parsley Health is an ambitious, mission-driven team that’s reinventing primary care to help people live healthier lives.

Through our advanced whole-body approach, Parsley Health has helped thousands of people reverse and prevent health problems while achieving their health and wellness goals. Our work is inspired by our patient’s journey and our actions are focused on impact and results. We thrive in a dynamic, high-paced work environment, while appreciating what it means to be healthy and well.


You are an experienced (5 years minimum — have you got less?) backend engineer. You appreciate the challenge of building reliable, secure, complex systems. You love integrating third-party services to create functional and novel applications. You like working with typed languages, like Go, Java or Scala to make reliable server-applications. You use Docker and CI, love writing tests and care about code quality. You're big on SQL, PubSub queues, and cloud-based services. You're always considering the many places your tools and data models might be used or accessed, beyond the current project scope.

Most importantly, you're excited for an opportunity to improve the lives and experiences of our members, and ultimately build the technology that provides a better health care.
