Why work at Solv?
We have awesome problems to solve
The healthcare market provides a fantastic blend of problems. We need creative people to help us bring now-is-the-time innovation to the healthcare industry, along with the human side of helping people access health care quickly and easily and makes them feel safe. It’s work that matters.
Engineering focus. 
We use the phrase "we're a tech company that does healthcare" to emphasize how important engineering is to the company. Engineering is the department that drives our apps, tools, data, and interfaces forward. This attitude comes not only from the engineers, but from our CEO and CTO. They believe in us.
Pace and sanity.  
We're that rare company that holds to our culture of its startup roots and we like to move at speed, while blending in the sanity of a regular work schedule with an emphasis on work/life/family balance.
What you'll work with:
Our base web stack is Javascript/Typescript and that rides on top of Postgres, Python, Redis, Elastic Search, and more. On the front end of things we're a React.js shop. We use Styled Components for styling our React components. We use Git for version controlling and Jira to keep our tickets in place. If there's something that's a good idea for the team, we'll do our best to implement it.
How we work:
The engineering team is currently ~25 people, and we break into small teams of 2-4 to focus on specific projects. We release weekly, but new features are always under development and often span releases. We believe in testing our code properly. We use enzyme and jest for unit testing and write our own cypress tests for our critical flows. Each team member is responsible to ensure that only high quality code gets to production. Organizationally, we're pretty flat, though you'll have a mentor with whom you'll have weekly 1-on-1 meetings, to review code, exchange ideas, and ensure we're doing everything we can for you to thrive in your role.
Other Perks:
People you're happy to see every day
Weekly tech meetings where we present learnings or new technologies we want to explore
Weekly “demo and donuts” to present your work before it gets shipped
Yearly engineering learning stipend
Monthly lunch roulette to get together with people you don’t usually work with
San Francisco and Denver office locations with the flexibility to work remotely
All IDEs welcome
Generous benefits (unlimited time off, 401k, health + dental coverage for Solv squad members and the people that depend on them)
