Job Description

Equip is a startup on a mission to transform eating disorder treatment through Family-Based Treatment at home to promise lasting recovery. Equip provides each patient with a five-person dedicated care team including a dietitian, physician, therapist, family mentor, and peer mentor who deliver wrap-around support to provide families healing.

About the role:

As a Senior Engineer, you’ll balance speed, quality and reliability to get the right solution deployed to our providers and clients today. You enjoy data modeling, fast product cycles, and you highly value robust testing.
As a senior engineer, you’ll own large parts of the software stack and take part in all engineering-related decisions. You love clean, scalable code, but you’re equally in love with scrappy, rapid iteration and feedback cycles. We've got a ton of interesting problems to solve around data analytics, data pipelines, and predictions, system reliability, security, privacy, and more. If you're passionate about tackling hard problems while making a real difference in the world, we'd love to talk! 



  • Design and deliver software that improves the availability and scalability of our application and infrastructures
  • Investigate mission-critical problems and build solutions that prevent problem recurrence in all non-exceptional conditions
  • Build & ship fast w/ our Typescript stack
  • Test, launch and iterate on product features based on a data driven approach that also
  • incorporates user feedback and testing
  • Implement and help enforce software best practices like Agile, CI & TDD
  • Build useful internal tools and automation workflows to help the company run more efficiently

Job requirements

  • 6+ years experience building scalable systems and backend services
  • Experience in our current technologies is a bonus: Javascript, Typescript, React, TypeORM, Redis, PostgreSQL, Docker, AWS

  • Experience with API architecture (RPC, Rest, IPC) to enable horizontal scaling

  • You have a product mindset: you really care about customer outcomes and you want to build a product that fundamentally changes how digital care is delivered

  • You’re comfortable working in a new, small team that is growing – you’ll need to be happy with ambiguity and things changing on a regular basis

  • You feel confident making trade-off decisions between moving quickly and getting products in the hands of our customers, versus building secure, scalable and resilient systems

Bonus if you have the following:

  • B.S.+ in Computer Science or related field (or equivalent experience)
  • Previous experience working in a health tech startup
  • Experience as an early engineering hire in a startup environment
