Why Join Forward?

We don’t want to just move dollars around the healthcare industry - we want to rebuild it and fix it. All of it. You’d be a major part of the story behind one of the most ambitious startup attempts of the past decade and you’d work with a team of people who want to use their talents for good.

Many industries, from video streaming to electric vehicles, have removed intermediaries to provide their services directly to consumers. Healthcare, arguably the most important and personal industry, has continually been delivered via complex insurance plans -- until now. As an early member of our growth team, you will help us deliver high-quality healthcare, happiness and peace of mind to new members everywhere. (More on Direct Primary Care here if you’re curious)

You Will:

  • Directly contribute to Forward's mission to serve a billion people. The growth team’s work is the first touch point for everyone who joins us, employees and customers alike.
  • Build platforms and tools to empower growth marketing to iterate on sales and marketing experiments, and attract not only members, but world-class doctors and engineers.
  • Write APIs, spin up Databases, and go deep on AWS infrastructure to build scalable systems, not temporary hacks. 
  • Work with many different teams, from engineering, product and design, to analysts, recruiting, marketing and beyond.
  • Work on many parts of our stack from our website, and mobile apps, to our internal work platform.

You Are:

  • Someone who loves to ship and see their work out in the wild.
  • Always trying to optimize for outcomes. You love seeing the impact of your work, and can tell from the data if you’ve achieved your goals.
  • Creative. You love to experiment to find the best solution or idea.
  • Someone who holds a high quality bar. The team needs to move fast, and in order to do so safely, they have to put down stable foundations along the way.
  • Versatile and comfortable in all parts of the stack.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • BS or MS in Computer Science or direct equivalent
  • Some frontend experience in a job or internship

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with a frontend framework like React, Angular, or Vue.js
  • Comfortable building APIs and scalable services
  • Growth engineering experience is optional, but a plus!

The base salary range for this full-time position is $100,000-$220,000, plus equity and benefits.
