At Alma, we’re making it easier for people to access high quality, affordable mental health care by supporting providers in building thriving private practices. We believe that when therapists have better resources, they’re able to provide better care to their clients. When a provider joins Alma, they gain access to a suite of tools that not only help them better run their business, but also grow it sustainably and develop as a provider. Our product experience is designed to empower people in their search for mental health care, offering multiple pathways and individualized support, if and when someone needs it. Alma has raised funding from incredible investors like Insight Partners, Optum Ventures, Tusk Venture Partners, Primary Venture Partners, and First Round Capital, and was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in Health in 2020.

Senior Backend Engineer

Alma is seeking a mission-driven Senior Backend Engineer to join our team.  We are dedicated to building tools and services which help our providers more easily manage and grow their practice. In this role, you will be building features that solve real problems for mental health providers. The ideal candidate is able to recognize that successful software development requires communication, experimentation, and iteration.  

On this scaling team, you will have a strong hand in defining Alma's features, services, and architecture. The ideal person for this role loves to collaborate with other teams to design and build amazing digital experiences.   

What You’ll Do:
  • Gain a deep understanding of what Alma members do, how they operate, and where their pain points are.
  • Design, develop, and implement maintainable and scalable product features using modern web technologies (Python, Django, MySQL, Linux).
  • Develop both member-facing and internal-facing features around onboarding, scheduling, billing, and client management.
  • Collaborate with Alma managers, PMs, and designers to conceptualize and build solutions for practical problems facing Alma members.
  • Ensure applications and services meet Alma's standards for software including performance, scalability, and security.
Who You Are:
  • You have 4+ years of experience as an engineer with a proven history of working across the stack and building product at scale.
  • You have extensive experience with web technologies. We are language agnostic in our interviews but require experience with one or more common web frameworks.
  • You have a strong understanding of accessibility and security compliance.
  • You’ve implemented automated testing platforms and unit tests.
  • You have a proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git.
  • You enjoy customer-centered software development and collaborating closely with a team of engineers, designers, and product managers.
  • You possess a desire to experiment, (succeed or fail), and use research and data, where appropriate, to make data-driven decisions.

An Insider's view of Alma

What projects are you most excited about?

We're all feeling the world starting to take mental wellness more seriously but it is still a space fraught with confusion & lack of understanding. It's exciting to think about the opportunities for innovation when it comes to helping people find the perfect therapist, simplifying access & affordability in a space that has been difficult to enter.

Nick

Chief Technology Officer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Alma has given me the trust, autonomy, and support to lead the Growth Team while consistently challenging me to evaluate the impact of all strategic decisions on the business both in the short-term and long-term. The opportunity to learn and grow is continuous as I work alongside passionate experts.

Ashley

VP, Growth

What is your vision for the company?

Mental health care is a very intimate and highly personal experience. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to high-quality care. At Alma, our job is to support providers and champion their expertise so they can focus on meeting clients where they are and partnering with them to achieve lasting results.

Dr. Harry Ritter

Founder and CEO

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

To be creative requires time to think big and trust from your manager to be brave in making big ideas happen. If weeks are frenetic with zero time for deep thinking, inertia will get in the way of innovation every time. And when big, bold bets come to the table, I emphasize that whether we succeed or fail, our learnings will be equally valuable.
