Healthcare needs good data. At PicnicHealth, we are building the world’s highest quality medical datasets - fueling cutting edge research while giving patients control of their health record. These comprehensive, patient-centric, real-world datasets produce unique insights - across multiple therapeutic areas - not available from any other source. We do this by working directly with patients and leveraging state of the art machine learning techniques to transform their messy medical records into structured, accurate, and useful data. Patients then access their data through an easy-to-use, secure online dashboard and choose to participate in, and benefit from, research on their condition along with other PicnicHealth users.

To date, we’ve helped tens of thousands of patients, partnered with some of the world’s largest life science companies (including 10 of the Top 30), and raised more than $35M including from Felicis Ventures, Amplify Partners, and Y Combinator.

And we are just getting started! If you are looking to join a mission-driven, motivated team that is making a real impact across millions of people’s lives, PicnicHealth might just be the place for you.

The Opportunity

Most engineers at Picnic are full-stack engineers. On our team, you’d own features end-to-end, from planning out and structuring data models to designing and building front-end interfaces. You’ll need to be able to think independently and operate with a high degree of autonomy, taking problems that may be poorly specified and finding the best solution. We have challenges ranging from creating new ways to visualize medical information to implementing data pipelines to improving application performance. You’ll need to be able to fearlessly tackle any challenge that gets thrown at you. 

As a full-stack engineer you would:

  • Own features of PicnicHealth: build, deploy, iterate. You’re responsible for what you’re building, and you have - creative control over the direction you take 
  • Ship code to production frequently, often daily
  • Work at all levels of the stack — infrastructure (GCP, Kubernetes), database (PostgreSQL, Redis, ElasticSearch), services (Node, Python, Celery, TensorFlow, Keras), and frontend (React, Redux)
  • Architect efficient and reusable systems
  • Work with engineering, design, operations, and business teams to create new and compelling user-facing features
  • Help continue to build a world-class Engineering team, by helping attract, interview, and onboard your future team members during this exciting time of growth.

You are a strong candidate if you have:

  • B.S. in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent experience
  • Foundation in computer science, with competencies in data structures, algorithms, and software design
  • Shipped code for 5+ years
  • Ability to code on the client and the server for web platforms

The ideal candidate:

  • Is fluent in the React development ecosystem 
  • Enjoys designing interfaces almost as much as building them
  • Is excited by machine learning and its implications for user interfaces
  • Is passionate about improving the lives of patients and making a difference in improving healthcare outcomes
Why join PicnicHealth?

At PicnicHealth you get to solve real problems with real solutions, great tech, and great people. We offer a hybrid set up for our team: team members in the Bay Area can work from the SF office on a flexible schedule; remote team members are expected to travel to in-person meetings 4-6 times a year.

You also get:

  • Competitive salary 
  • Comprehensive benefits including Health, Dental, Vision
  • Flexible time off
  • 401k plan
  • Parental leave
  • Free PicnicHealth account
  • Equipment and internet funds for home office set up
