Active Roles
Why join us?
  • Impact at Scale: We’re tackling a fundamental problem: making healthcare high-quality, preventative, and accessible. We’re building a product with potential to change the life of billions and redefine an industry.

  • Fully Reimagined: We’re rebuilding healthcare from the ground up: with in-house design, hardware, software, and our own electronic health records system. This freedom from legacy systems allows us to innovate rapidly and reimagine daily.

  • Empathy & Empowerment: Forward was built to bring the humanity back to medicine by putting people first — not insurance companies. We empower our doctors to form deep relationships with members, and provide care that’s preventative, personalized, and engaging.


Engineering at Forward
Engineering team and processes

Forward is on a bold mission to make high quality healthcare available to a billion people across the globe. We’re building the world’s most advanced healthcare platform from the ground up, combining hardware, software and doctors under one roof. Our engineering teams are organized to tackle a large surface area of complex challenges in hardware development, mobile applications, data infrastructure, human capital optimization, medical algorithms, computer vision, and growth engineering, to name a few. Engineers at Forward own entire projects while working alongside cross-functional teams of doctors, designers, and operators. As an early member of our engineering team, you’ll have a key role in building the future of healthcare from first principles.

Technical Challenges

We are designing and implementing medical grade hardware devices that raise the bar on how healthcare is delivered. We are working on making healthcare distributed so that data from remote sensors can be continuously analyzed by our algorithms to create proactive medical interventions. We are working on the next generation of algorithms that unearth risks through genetic health markers. We are building healthcare platforms from the ground up that allow us to automate human touch-points. We are combining advanced engineering concepts like computer vision and machine learning to build user experiences that have never been attempted before in the healthcare industry

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to work on advanced hardware devices combined with sophisticated software that enable our doctors to deliver the world's best healthcare to our members

  • You would get to work on the next generation of telemedicine applications and distributed health sensors

  • You would get to work on data infrastructure and learning algorithms that move the needle from the reactive nature of healthcare that exists today to proactive interventions that enable our members to take control of their health
