Job Description

About Kevala

Kevala is reshaping the way healthcare organizations manage and engage their internal and external care teams. By delivering purpose-built SaaS that automates healthcare scheduling and compliance while maximizing employee preference and collaboration, Kevala helps to ensure that all shifts are filled with happy, engaged care teams.

Healthcare is one of the largest and fastest growing industries, with 17.5 million providers in the United States alone, but technology has not kept pace.  There is still far too much paper and manual process, and what little technology exists is outdated and disconnected. As the population ages, and the demand for healthcare outstrips the availability of caregivers, a crisis is upon us.  Shifts are going unfilled, care teams are burning out, and our elderly are not getting the care they need.  

Kevala is committed to tackling this ferocious problem head-on. We are organizing the best and brightest minds to usher in the future of healthcare workforce management and care orchestration. 

About the role

Kevala is looking for an experienced software engineer to help design and build a modern healthcare workforce orchestration platform. This is an opportunity to build a new product from the ground up. You will be working directly with a battle-tested founding team during the early stages of a growing startup.

In this position, you will…

  • Learn and understand our customers business, workflows, and data
  • Analyze, design, build, test, maintain, deploy, and support the Kevala platform
  • Build a modern web user experience that delights our users
  • Write high quality code with high (effective) test coverage
  • Model relational data and design effective SQL queries
  • Clearly communicate solutions and trade-offs with all stakeholders
  • Work not just with engineers, but founders, designers, operations, and customers

We are looking for…

  • Someone who enjoys working on both frontend, backend, and devops
  • An understanding of the full software development lifecycle
  • A problem solver
  • A clean, test-driven developer
  • A strong relational data modeler
  • Great communication skills
  • Functional programming experience is a plus!
  • Experience developing a complex SaaS product is a plus!
  • Healthcare, scheduling, or marketplace experience is a plus!

We work in Elixir (with Phoenix and Ecto), but languages and technologies can be learned; we care much more about general engineering skill than knowledge of any particular language or framework. Our current stack includes:

  • Elixir, Phoenix, GraphQL
  • Javascript, Vue, TailwindUI
  • Postgres, Redis, and RabbitMQ
  • Heroku and AWS

Benefits and Culture

  • Healthcare (Medical, Dental, Vision, Life)
  • Unlimited PTO 
  • 1 day paid VTO ("volunteer time off" to do community service/charity work)
  • $1000 per year continuing education allowance
  • Once in a lifetime opportunity to influence healthcare’s frontline
  • Fun, collaborative, and team-oriented work environment 

Once you’re part of the Kevala team, it is our job to make sure that you’re empowered to build high quality code that you believe in. We are a lean startup team and want everyone to feel like they have a real impact on our software and company’s success.

We are an equal opportunity employer and highly value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
