Our mission: to eliminate every barrier to mental health.

Spring Health is a comprehensive mental health solution for employers and health plans. Unlike any other solution, we use clinically validated technology called Precision Mental Healthcare to pinpoint and deliver exactly what will work for each person — whether that’s meditation, coaching, therapy, medication, and beyond.

Today, Spring Health equips over 800 companies, from start-ups to multinational Fortune 500 corporations, as a leading and preferred mental health service. Companies like J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Microsoft, J.B. Hunt, Bumble, and Instacart use the Spring Health platform to provide mental health services to thousands of their team members globally. We have raised over $370 million from prominent investors including Kinnevik, Tiger Global, Northzone, RRE Ventures, and many more. Thanks to their partnership, our current valuation has reached $2.5 billion.

This role will be required to work out of an office location 3 days per week in either New York City or San Francisco.

Initially reporting to the General Manager, Stealth Venture, you will be in a high-visibility, high-impact role as a Senior Software Engineer II over a new initiative. You’ll be a technical leader involved in driving the delivery as a part of a 0-1 team. You will be a champion of technical initiatives and work closely with our product leadership to prioritize and execute on deliverables.

This is an opportunity to be the foundational member of an agile team for an innovative early stage product. You will be a part of a collaborative team identifying the opportunities and helping create the products that transform mental healthcare for the better.

What You Will Be Doing:

  • Drive a 0-1 high-impact product initiative, playing a swiss army knife on engineering as a technical leader
  • Work with a cross-functional SWAT team of product managers, designers, data scientists, and marketers to rapidly innovate and execute against company priorities
  • Partner with the GM, EM, and CTO to set standards, technical vision, and software architecture
  • Take on complex requirements and distill them into a proposal of small deliverables
  • Successfully manage project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables
  • Look for opportunities for process improvements and opportunities to exhibit leadership
  • Exhibit a deep understanding of our products, how customers use them, and how they fit into the larger business
  • Quickly pivot solutions based on feedback or complexity, effectively communicating reasons for the change and path forward to rest of your team
  • Manage risks, dependencies and tradeoffs inevitable in complex project delivery

What success looks like in this role:

  • Launch an innovative, high-impact mental health product within 5 quarters
  • Maintain strong engineering practices (e.g. minimizing code churn, cycle time, etc…)
  • Develop architectures that allow for integrations and scalable growth
  • Raise the bar for engineering excellence and delivery

What We Expect From You:

We’re looking for an experienced, strategic and technical Senior Software Engineer who cares about impact, ownership, cross-functional projects, and mentorship. This hire will work with a fast-paced, agile engineering team, building 0-1 products that will shape the future of Spring. Experience working with healthcare infrastructure, in AI/ML, and having worked in an early-stage startup environment is a big plus.

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or a related field
  • 6+ years of experience as an engineer or technologist, with a proven track record of delivering successful products in or adjacent to the healthcare industry
  • Deep understanding of modern healthcare SaaS platforms and their architecture
  • Address cross-team challenges related to customers, quality and security
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills. You should be able to explain your approach and the impact of your work to non-technical stakeholders
  • An ability to navigate ambiguity, with a bias towards rapid execution over process
  • Experience working in an early stage startup environment. Our ideal candidate will be comfortable with a high-growth, dynamic, 0-1 environment
  • Preferred experience with AI/ML tools
  • Preferred experience in mental health technology; required experience in healthcare technology
  • Ability to identify and prevent decisions that are not "two-way door decisions"

The target base salary range for this position is $179,100- $218,550, and is part of a competitive total rewards package including stock options and benefits. Individual pay may vary from the target range and is determined by a number of factors including experience, location, internal pay equity, and other relevant business considerations. We review all employee pay and compensation programs annually at minimum to ensure competitive and fair pay.
