About Us:

Cityblock Health is the first tech-driven provider for communities with complex needs—bringing better care to where it’s needed most, block by block. Founded in 2017 on the premise that “health is local” and based in Brooklyn, we are backed by Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs along with some of the top healthcare investors in the country.

Our mission is to improve the health of underserved communities. Importantly, our solutions are designed specifically for Medicaid and lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, and we meet our members where they are, bringing care into the home and neighborhoods through our community-based care teams and Virtual Care offerings.

In close collaboration with community-based organizations, local providers, and leading health plans, we are reorganizing the health system to focus on what matters to our members. Equipped with world-class, custom care delivery technology, we deliver personalized primary care, behavioral health, and social services to deliver a radically better experience of care for every member and community we serve.

Over the next year, we’ll grow quickly to bring better care to many more members and their communities. To do this, we need people who, like us, believe that everyone should have good care for what matters to them, in their community. 

Our work is grounded in a belief in the power of a diverse community. To close gaps in care and advance equity in the communities we serve, we have to start with making our own team diverse and inclusive. Our ways of working are characterized by creativity, collaboration, and mutual learning that comes from bringing together a community from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We strive to ensure that every person on the Cityblock team, and every Cityblock member, feels supported and included as a part of our community.

Our Values:

  • Aim for Understanding
  • Be All In
  • Bring Your Whole Self
  • Lean Into Discomfort
  • Put Members First

About the Role:

We are looking for an Engineer to add substantial value to our primary internal application used by hundreds of care providers.

You will join our Engineering team which works closely with our design, product management, data science, and clinical operations teams to create a digital product experience tailored to our Member’s needs.

Our existing applications generally use: React, GraphQL, Typescript, Node.js, and Postgresql, all hosted on Aptible (AWS). Experience with these types of tools are helpful, but not critical.

  • Participate in creating and maintaining strict compliance, data privacy and security measures.
  • Help recruit highly capable engineers to the team from diverse backgrounds.
  • Mentor engineers, new team members, and apply technical expertise to help others grow effectively. While also continuously growing to upgrade your skills and thinking as an engineer.
  • Collaborate with our clinical teams, product managers, and designers to build features that are highly efficient to support field-based operations and engage patients.

Requirements for the Role:

  • You are invigorated by the complexities of building great health tech.
  • You have a process-oriented mindset, and are comfortable writing and debating around design documents. 
  • You enjoy working across the stack and seeing features through end-to-end.
  • You have 6+ years experience writing production code.
  • At least 2+ years experience leading members of an engineering team
  • You have a passion for doing mission-oriented work.
  • You enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different expertise.

How We Define Success:

  • Deliver impactful features to care teams
  • Create an engaging work environment for engineering team through sharing in challenges and creating growth opportunities
  • Maintain strong relationships with your collaborators such as members of the product team, medical team and the platform and product engineering teams.

Nice to Have, But Not Required:

  • Experience with the technologies in our stack.
  • Experience building health technology and/or manipulating health data.
  • Previous exposure to clinical operations and/or working with physicians.
  • A CS degree or equivalent.

What We’d Like From You:

  • A resume and/or LinkedIn profile 
  • A short cover letter, please!
