Our Mission
Zocdoc is the tech company at the beginning of a better healthcare experience. Every day, we are driven by our mission to give power to the patient, building products and services that simplify and streamline the overall healthcare journey for patients and providers, delivering the modern healthcare experience they expect and deserve.
Healthcare moves slow. We move fast. Patients deserve speed and convenience. 

The safety and health of our employees is our top priority. As such, our return to office plan will follow a phased approach, working towards a hybrid model. Starting in June we opened our NYC office for colleagues on Wednesdays and Thursdays. This is entirely voluntary and includes all of our regular in-office perks such as free lunch. There will not be any mandatory return to office in 2021. Learn more about our return to office philosophy and plans here!

Your Impact on our Mission:

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our Developer Platform team at Zocdoc! Embedded within our infrastructure org, you’ll contribute to the next generation of developer tooling and service deployment. You’ll work to support our Product Engineering teams to improve their development workflows and ensure that the features Zocdoc builds are functional, secure, and resilient, enabling millions of patients to get the care they need. As a Zocdoc’r, you may be working remotely, but that doesn’t mean you’re working alone - you’ll work with a supportive team of great humans who are funny, intellectually curious, and passionate about giving power back to the patient!

Your day to day is…

  • Shipping real code in languages like Scala, C#, Node or React to millions of users autonomously, without gates on other parts of the engineering organization

  • Making meaningful contributions as you own and release features that will impact our large engineering org which in turn will impact patients, doctors, and Zocdocr’s alike
  • Supporting our large product engineering org with their tooling, deployment, and cloud infrastructure needs
  • Mentoring your peers and colleagues, with the notion that helping others means learning and growing yourself

You’ll be successful in this role if you have…

  • Experience with all the acronyms (and numeronyms) - AWS, CI, CD, IaC, K8s, O11y, etc.
  • Successfully shipped code for a consumer-facing product, with experience working across multiple areas of the technology stack
  • A passion for building platforms and understanding what makes a great platform - infrastructure as code, automation, libraries, APIs, and standardization
  • Successfully mentored other engineers in the past and have encouraged your peers to use software development best practices for code testing and deployment
  • Experience successfully working with a distributed workforce preferred


  • Unlimited PTO 
  • 100% paid employee health benefit options
