And as a mental health company, we take employee mental health just as seriously as we do our mission. We seriously invest in our team’s well-being and professional development, because we know that business and individual growth go hand-in-hand.

At BetterHelp, you’ll carve your own path, make an immediate impact, and be challenged every day – with a supportive community behind you the whole way.

What are we looking for?

We're looking for a talented, motivated, smart individual with a passion for software engineering, a strong desire to learn and an interest in providing mentorship to junior level developers. This position is ideal for a seasoned software engineer who has worked on multiple challenging projects, someone who is not afraid to write code to scratch an itch. We love technology and so should you.

What technologies will you work with?

We use a combination of well established and more recent technologies, always innovating, always experimenting. We’re open to new ideas and novel approaches! Our current tech stack is:

  • Backend: Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP and Redis
  • Frontend: Twig (php templates), Bootstrap 3, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3/SASS and React

What will you do?

  • You will develop end to end. You own your features and see them through to production and beyond.
  • You will develop best practices and write clean, secure, readable, scalable code. OOP where appropriate.
  • You will collaborate with other team members - engineers and others.
  • You will integrate and build for external and internal API's.
  • You will develop new products in PHP and alter existing PHP code to accommodate scale and integration with new technologies and APIs.
  • You will write and optimize SQL queries and design schemas.
  • You will create and code complex backend algorithms.
  • You will profile and optimize new and legacy code.
  • You will use CSS and Javascript to complete functionality of new products.
  • You will be leveraging Bootstrap 3, jQuery HTML5, CSS3 and other open source technologies.
  • You will always be thinking cross-device and cross-platform, mobile, tablet and desktop.
  • You will ship often and fast. We keep an agile environment with continuous deployment.
  • You will care and be involved in our product, mission, and success - way beyond checking off development tasks.
  • You will enjoy great teamwork and lots of fun.

What will you NOT do?

  • You will NOT worry about funding. We have startup DNA, but we're fully backed and funded by our parent company, Teladoc Health.
  • You will NOT be confined to your "job". We believe in nurturing employees’ interests and passions – even if some of them lie outside of your core responsibilities.
  • You will NOT be bogged down by office politics, egos, or bad attitudes. Only positive, pleasure-to-work-with people are allowed here!
  • You will NOT get burned out. We work hard, but we also believe in maintaining sustainable work/life balance. Seriously.
  • You will NOT have to wonder why you’re doing the work you’re doing. Our day-to-day operations translate into people getting the help they need.

Can I work remotely?

Yes. We operate in Pacific Time and candidates in any time zone are welcome to apply. We also ask our employees to travel to our Mountain View, CA office up to six times per year to collaborate in person in order to build better working relationships and experience our in-office culture. Travel expenses will be covered and reasonable accommodations will be made for those under unique circumstances who cannot travel.

Requirements

  • Must be able to legally work in the US.
  • Deep understanding of web development concepts and principles.

  • 3+ years of experience in SQL. Designing relational DB schemas, complex queries, etc.
  • Familiar with web & SQL security best practices.
