We think you should love your health insurance. Yes, we said love. Collective Health was founded to fix what's broken about the healthcare experience. We're starting by building products that help companies take better care of their people. Our first product is a complete health insurance solution for companies and their employees. We're rebuilding the health insurance infrastructure from the ground up, applying modern technologies and a consumer products approach to develop the tech stack for a better healthcare future.

We're backed by Founders Fund, NEA, and Google Ventures with a team coming from NASA, Google, Blue Shield, and Mercer.

Why join us?
  • Great opportunity — Our mission encompasses every part of the healthcare system — plan design, claims processing, analytics, customer experience, support — creating immense ownership and opportunity for engineers.

  • Engineering team and company culture — We've worked hard to build a great company and engineering team culture. As an engineering team, we believe good code is easy to read and understand. We expect all of our engineers to continually teach as well as learn. Our company as a whole places a high priority on the overall member experience, including customer support (you shouldn't have to wait on hold ever), legal language (you shouldn't have to be a lawyer to read your health plan), and intuitive web design. We care deeply about diversity and inclusion and have worked to build a diverse team where everyone feels respected and supported.

  • And more

    • Mission-driven culture, make a big impact fixing an industry that has lots of potential for fixing.
    • Still in the early stages of the company with a lot of infrastructure + features left to build.
    • Lots of autonomy/ownership/mentorship.
    • Flexibility to move around, learn new things, and not be siloed into one area.
    • Dual tracks for IC/Managers and chance to move into leadership (e.g. tech lead or manager) with the growth we're having.
    • Using new technologies and competing against companies that are using very outdated ones

Technical Challenges

We've got a ton of interesting problems to solve around distributed systems, data analytics and predictions, system reliability, security, privacy, and more. For example:

  • Infrastructure challenges: We've been using microservices since day one, and we're currently building V2 of our microservices infrastructure

  • Building our own claim processing engine to accurately and quickly process insurance claims

  • Member data: we want to be the source of truth for member data. We thus need to ingest data across multiple sources, filter, and clean it to make a single source of truth that is correct and up-to-date.
