Software Engineer

| Greater NYC Area
Who we are
Cityblock Health is a new type of healthcare company, operating out of Brooklyn and backed by Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs, along with some of the top healthcare investors in the country.
Our mission is to radically improve the health of urban communities, one block at a time. Importantly, our solutions are designed specifically for Medicaid and lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, and we bring the capability to deliver care in the home and neighborhood with our field-based teams.
In close collaboration with community-based organizations and leading commercial partners, we are reorganizing the health system to focus on what matters to our members. We deliver personalized primary care, behavioral health, and social services through a network of neighborhood hubs with deep community-based partnerships and world-class technology. 
We partner with payers and at-risk providers, accepting capitated financial risk to care for their most vulnerable, high and rising risk members. Additionally, we invest in strategic partnerships with community-based and social services organizations, in some instances bringing them into the value equation through sub-capitation and performance-based compensation. 
Over the next year we’ll grow quickly, including entering new markets, each with their own commercial relationships and field-based teams. This role will be a key contributor to the success of our business.
 
The role
We are looking for a software engineer to help build Commons, our digital care management platform. Commons enables our clinical teams to engage with patients, collect structured data about medical, behavioral and social needs, and develop personalized care plans that drive good health. Commons will allow our care operations to scale to eventually support hundreds of thousands of patients in cities across the country.
You will join our product engineering team which works closely with our design, product management, data science and clinical operations teams to create a digital product experience tailored to our exact needs. 
We’re building Commons with a modern tech stack: React, GraphQL, Typescript, Node.js, and Postgres, all hosted on HIPAA-compliant AWS through Aptible, and using Redox as our integration layer to Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. 
If you like building great user experiences, are seeking out entrepreneurial opportunities, and are an amazing teammate, we want to hear from you!
 
You will :
  • Build and own entire features in Commons.
  • Write, and review, code up and down the stack as needed. 
  • Write clean, well-tested, code that will stand the test of time.
  • Participate in creating and maintaining strict compliance, data privacy and security measures.
  • Help recruit highly capable engineers to the team from diverse backgrounds.
  • Learn continuously via mentorship (and on your own!) to upgrade your skills and thinking as an engineer.
  • Collaborate with our clinical teams to gather requirements build understanding across product and clinical operations teams.
  • Work closely with design to build user-facing features that are both beautiful and highly efficient to support field-based operations and engage patients.
  • Come up up to speed on how healthcare works (or doesn’t) to support those who need it most.
You’d be a good fit if:
  • You enjoy doing whatever it takes to execute on complex projects with little guidance. 
  • You have 3+ years experience writing production code.
  • You have worked in fast-moving startup environments before.
  • You enjoy taking initiative. 
  • You have a process-oriented mindset and ability to execute.
  • Are invigorated, rather than daunted, by the challenge of building great health tech.
  • You have a passion for doing mission-oriented work. 
Nice to have:
  • Experience with the technologies in our stack
  • Experience building health technology and/or manipulating health data
  • Previous exposure to clinical operations and/or working with physicians
  • A CS degree or equivalent (top tier bootcamp grads welcome!)
“Nice to have” really means “nice to have”. It’s completely possible that you don’t have any of these and are still a great fit for the team.
 
You should include these in your application:
  • A resume and/or LinkedIn profile.
  • A cover letter including a one paragraph summary of a technical project you’re most proud to have built and what was hard about it. Optionally include links to public-facing documentation about the project such as a Github repo or blog post, if available.
Cityblock values diversity as a core tenet of the work we do and populations we serve. We are an equal opportunity employer, indiscriminate of race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, disability, genetic information, or any other protected characteristic.

An Insider's view of Cityblock Health

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The opportunity to collaborate directly with medical professionals, care providers, and engineers to build Commons is rare and huge. You're not just building features. You know the 'why' of what you're building and who it will help—and you can see the impact firsthand.

Sylvia

VP of Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

This is my first role as a software engineer—my previous life was in fashion retail. Cityblock created a structure that enables me to master fundamental skills and empowers me to own projects that expose me gradually to more difficult concepts, like building our application’s notification center—with a supportive team backing me up.

Alicia

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

In my clinical work, I've seen our health system moving away from relationships and toward increasingly complex frameworks. I joined Cityblock to challenge that trend. To make healthcare trustworthy again and to truly meet individuals where they are.

Toyin

Chief Health Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

My goal is to work with tech & clinical teams to build something useful yet simple. Sitting side-by-side we try to understand what our care teams and members need from our technology. Together, we're creating a world in which the product and tools become invisible, to enable our care teams to spend as much time as possible with our members.
