Why Work Here?

Join our team and help us deliver Care Without Barriers. Our company offers significant opportunity for motivated self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced environment that is quickly transitioning from a startup to a highly recognized healthcare industry disruptor. We offer an exceptional benefits package including health, dental and vision, 401k savings, flexible vacation and working policies, competitive salaries and stock options and an EcoPass. CirrusMD is located in the Catalyst HTI building in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood, a newly built office space, with access to open-air shared workspaces and community areas, and a highly engaged community of healthcare and tech innovation leaders. Subsidized parking, on-site gym and shower facilities are also available to our team.  Join us and see for yourself!

Who We’re Looking For:

A battle-tested, yet personable principal engineer who can confidently contribute to our mission of redefining the healthcare experience for patients and providers.  You are comfortable proposing system architectures, and getting alignment from engineers around you while discussing the tradeoffs. You feel comfortable steering code review discussions ensuring that opinions are heard, but a decision is made. You can solve the hard problems on your own, but enjoy mentoring other engineers just as much. We seek a motivated, self-starter who can buckle-down and deliver as an individual contributor as well as provide technical direction for a growing team.

What You’ll Be Responsible For Achieving:

  • Building highly performant APIs, services and single page applications

  • Designing and steering software architecture discussions and decisions

  • Defining and modeling behavior expectations balancing optimism, collaboration and technical leadership

  • Leading our  evolving development and testing standards and best practices

  • Ability to deliver full-stack features in a modern, web-based application(s)

  • Experience designing REST & Graphql APIs

  • Experience architecting and supporting Javascript single page applications

  • Experience with real-time applications

  • Expertise with modern developer workflows and tool chains (Git, CI/CD, Webpack, Babel)

  • Extensive knowledge of testing best practices at all layers

  • Extensive knowledge of object-oriented and functional programming concepts and design patterns

  • Experience designing and managing complex relational database structures

  • Experience working on an established product with real users 

  • Your philosophy aligns with Agile methodologies and processes

  • Confidence pairing with other engineers of all levels

What Will Make You Stand Out:

  • Significant experience building APIs and services with Ruby on Rails

  • Experience supporting the advancement of a monolith app to modern architectures

  • Experience with enterprise SaaS instrumentation products such as New Relic or Elastic

  • Experience with 2 or more additional core technologies (Elixir / Python / Go / React)

  • Containerization and cloud orchestration experience (Docker, Kubernetes, etc)

  • A reputation for superb communication skills with other engineers and teammates

An Insider's view of CirrusMD Inc.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There is so much trust and positivity and collective desire to make healthcare a better thing for so many people to experience, that I walk in the door every morning and feel inspired and feel a lot of gratitude for the people with whom I get to work.

Elizabeth Moore

Director of Marketing

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

I joined CirrusMD primarily because I was interested in working on a set of technologies, a platform, that could have impact on everyday people in healthcare.

It’s very rare to get to work on a product where you can see that it helps people in their day-to-day lives.

Gabe Varela

Chief Technology Officer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I like working at CirrusMD because I have an opportunity to make a lasting impact in healthcare.

By partnering with payers in the health system, we can really create the technology that acts as a catalyst to help them take additional risk and really achieve the goals of their value-based models.

Robyn Dietz

VP Account Management

What is your vision for the company?

I started CirrusMD because I was texting a ton with my friends and family and I realized I was actually providing a
really incredible service, they weren’t getting from the medical industry.

I said to myself, “It isn’t fair that only doctors’ own friends and family have this level of amazing service."

Blake McKinney, MD

Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

As a Mobile Engineer, I work here because we have a cohesive team of engineers that are all dedicated to building awesome software.
