Job Description:

Senior Back-End Engineer

If you had all day to work on any development project you wanted, chances are that you would pick something you're passionate about. It might even be something that could change people's lives for the better. At Tava Health, that's exactly what we've done. We're passionate about improving emotional healthcare and it's our mission to do it through frictionless, technology-enabled care.

The "technology-enabled" part is where you come in. We're seeking an experienced back-end engineer whose passion for development is rivaled only by a passion for meaningful mission-based work. You'll have the responsibility to ensure that the emotional healthcare we provide is enabled by functional and reliable platforms for clinicians, clients, and internal staff. This work will improve the quality of our customers' lives, and that's work worth doing.


  • Infuse all of your work with empathy, security, and quality to produce high-quality experiences
  • Build internal APIs to support client, clinical, and administrative applications
  • Build integrations with 3rd party services for scheduling, video conferencing, and billing, etc.
  • Build systems to capture data about how clients interact with us to learn how to improve the product
  • Manage and build upon our simple service deployment in AWS

    What We Expect:
    • Ability to move fast and work through ambiguity - we are a small startup and are constantly balancing the demands of business growth and platform reliability
    • Effective collaboration with frontend engineers, product managers, data scientists, behavioral health specialists, and others
    • Willingness to learn new technologies and processes that may be out of your comfort zone
    • Empathy for everyone you affect: patients, clinicians, coworkers, and yourself
    • Proactive and consistent improvement of the security of our systems
    • Clear and efficient technical writing and thought to communicate complex ideas
    • A bachelor's degree in computer science or the equivalent with around 5 years of backend experience

      Key Backend Technologies:
      • Node
      • GraphQL
      • Typescript (we also love Javascript)
      • PostgreSQL
      • AWS

        What you'll love about this opportunity:
        • The work we do meaningfully improves people's lives in measurable ways
        • Get paid to do what you love while learning and exploring new ideas and skills
        • This is a true startup experience: fast-paced and fun with wide-open possibilities
        • Enjoy working remotely (anywhere in the continental US) in this full-time, salaried position.
        • Tava offers a highly competitive benefits package including the opportunity for stock options, parental leave, plenty of paid holidays and PTO, medical, dental, and vision insurance, and (of course) a generous mental health benefit.

          If this type of work and startup environment is exciting to you, then we look forward to seeing your application!

          Tava is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran, marital or disability status.
