Full-Stack Engineer

New York, NY / Full-time

Relevant is looking for a full-stack engineer to join us as employee number twenty-two. This role involves developing features for both our healthcare analytics platform and our care management suite, which is used by thousands of healthcare providers every day to assist patients with complex needs.

We’re looking for someone who wants to help shape our product, tech stack, and company for the next several years. Responsibilities will vary—partly according to your particular strengths and inclinations—but the range of possible tasks is wide, and includes:

  • Product design and UX
  • Writing client-side code with React and d3
  • Building and redesigning our Rails backend to support new features
  • Hacking on our in-browser ETL toolchain, which extracts data from customer systems
  • A variety of scrappy startup responsibilities, which we all share, from answering help-desk tickets to working on customer implementations to writing blog posts

Key requirements

Above all, we’re looking for general smarts, passion for the craft of programming, and excellent communication skills. We’re fun and easy to collaborate with, and hope you are too! Here are some specific qualities we're looking for, to help see if we’re a good fit:

  • You go deep You've spent some time gaining a deep understanding of a technical concept. Maybe it was fixing a tricky front-end bug caused by Angular's render loop, or reverse engineering Python decorators. But you've put in the time to understand a deep technical concept, and you know how to communicate about it to your peers.

  • You know how to build a web app You have experience using a framework to build web app features. Knowledge of our stack (Rails, React, d3) is a plus, but experience with Express, Django, Spring, or something similar also works. You're comfortable working with databases and REST APIs.

Working at Relevant

  • Join a small team of people (currently, there are 27 of us) who love what we do and continually strive to delight our customers.

  • Help us build a company culture that's friendly, respectful, and encourages continual learning.

  • Competitive salary, excellent benefits (we pay 100% of employee healthcare premiums), 401(k) with employer contribution, generous vacation policy, and a general emphasis on happiness and sanity.

When we're not experiencing a pandemic, our office space in downtown Manhattan is provided by WeWork, with the attendant nice amenities: social spaces, lots of natural light, reasonably good coffee and espresso. Here's the common area:
