Senior/Staff Frontend Engineer


August Health is an early-stage company that builds technology to enhance quality of care for vulnerable older adults. Our product is guiding the transition from complex, paper-based practices in the long-term care industry to a digital platform solution that unlocks the power of personalized care, predictive analytics, and value-based contracting.
Our mission is to:
(1) promote compassionate personal care for frail elders,
(2) bridge healthcare access gaps, and
(3) strengthen overburdened caregivers.


We're looking for an experienced frontend developer to join us, especially someone with several years of experience building and shipping complex, consumer-facing applications. We have two main products:
Our main application: React & TypeScript
A progressive web application that supports offline use: React, TypeScript, Service Workers, Web Workers, IndexedDB via Dexie.js
We expect you to have significant experience in at least React & TypeScript; experience in the progressive web application space is a major plus.
Technologies we use, but don't expect you to have experience in: Scala, Play Framework, Protobuf, Postgres
Our development team is a small group of capable engineers and we like to balance building thoughtfully with getting things shipped. The position offers the opportunity to deeply understand our problem space and channel compassion for the experiences of older adults into building a mission-driven, elegant, and intuitive product.
We offer market competitive compensation based on experience and ability, including significant equity option grants. Other benefits include excellent health, dental, vision coverage, 401K, One Medical, Talkspace, HealthAdvocate, Teladoc memberships.


7+ years professional experience as a software engineer familiar with building customer facing frontends
Ability and desire to mentor other engineers
Ability to thrive in a startup environment that’s full of ambiguity - experience balancing tradeoffs to make complex decisions where there is no ‘right’ answer
Good communication and personal skills; ability to interact and work well with the team
Interest in development of company culture and its reflection in our engineering practices


Our company of 35 has technical, healthcare and company-building backgrounds. We have prior experience at companies like Apple, Google, Landmark Health, and Adobe. Together, we’ve co-founded and exited multiple companies, managed large engineering and product teams, shipped features used by hundreds of millions of users, and led clinical teams supporting thousands of patients. We are funded by a group of top tier Silicon Valley investors and are working with some of the largest senior care organizations in the United States.
