About CareZone

CareZone is the market-leading mobile app for managing health and caregiving. We make life simpler for millions of people—helping them manage medications and private care related health information. Every day, we’re humbled and energized by the feedback we receive from our users (just check out our reviews in the app stores).

What you will do:

You will own the design, architecture, development, and ongoing support of CareZone's application back end. You will work cross-functionally with Marketing, Finance, Product, Sales, and Customer Support to fashion new business processes and solutions required to support the company's growth. Analytical rigor and strategic thinking are critical aspects for success, but you will also need to be able to dive in and own the technical implementation. We use a variety of technologies and frameworks, including Ruby/Rails, Go, Python, Javascript, and Apex/Salesforce, and the ideal candidate will be fearless in diving in to contribute across these different areas.


  • Design, develop, test, deploy, and maintain business applications built with a variety of technologies and frameworks
  • Lead/contribute to engineering efforts from planning and organization to execution and delivery to solve complex engineering problems in the development life cycle of our solutions
  • Manage individual project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables
  • Translate business requirements into well-architected solutions
  • Create and deliver appropriate documentation and communication around feature(s) and process changes to impacted employees
  • Partner with Design and Product Management to define and deliver the right solutions for CareZone’s internal and external stakeholders
  • Participate in code reviews for ongoing projects to ensure a high level of code quality and usage of appropriate design patterns


  • B.S. or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Engineering, or related technical field
  • 5+ years software development experience on back end systems
  • Proficiency with Ruby/Rails, Python, Java/C#, and/or Go, and a demonstrated interest in learning new programming languages and environments
  • Demonstrated competency in SQL and relational databases
  • Excellent troubleshooting and design skills
  • Interest and ability to learn new programming languages and environments as needed
  • High impact, low ego. We like to move fast, but believe the best ideas and solutions come from focusing on customer need and collaboration, not from superheroes.

Super powers:

  • Experience with Javascript frameworks like Vue.js or React
  • Experience with microservices architecture and/or Docker
  • Experience integrating external systems with Salesforce, or developing Salesforce code (Apex)
  • Startup or similar experience in a fast-paced environment
  • Expert with agile development process and project management tools like Jira or Trello
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a tight feedback loop with Design

 The Perks

  • Competitive pay with bonus opportunities
  • Great health, vision, and dental benefits
  • Generous paid time off and sick benefits
  • A 401(k) plan (with company match)
  • Coffee, snacks, and a friendly, casual work environment
