    Full Time

Evernow is a modern approach to women's healthcare for your late 30's, your 40's and beyond. With doctors who get it, we offer convenient, affordable care based on the most up to date medical research. We’re starting with perimenopause and menopause - the first major health events every woman faces as she enters her 40’s. Evernow connects women to the best expert physicians in women's health, proven prescription treatments delivered to your door, and unlimited communication with your doctor, all through an easy to access online platform.

We are looking for a Senior Backend Software Engineer. In this role you’ll work to develop and maintain features that power the core Evernow experience. You’ll join a growing team of people who are passionate about their craft, collaborative in their approach, and committed to building great things that improve peoples’ lives. We value clear communication, empathy, pragmatism, and a sense of humor, and we want to build a product and team culture that we’re proud of.

Our systems are built in full-stack TypeScript and make heavy use of fp-ts and other Haskell and category theory-influenced constructs. We’re taking this approach as it’s helped us to maintain and evolve a stable, predictable system with low bug frequency even as patient numbers rapidly increase and features become more complex. You don’t have to be an expert to apply, but familiarity with these ideas and experience with strongly-typed programming will help you succeed here.

This is a geographically distributed team based out of San Francisco, so please note this is a remote work opportunity.


  • Help design and implement infrastructure that power the core Evernow experience.

  • Be comfortable working in a product development environment, building from scratch.

  • Using frameworks to build service-side software and integrate APIs.

  • Think strategically, creatively and innovatively using good judgment and technical skills.

  • Strong understanding of programming techniques and tools, as well as the web development cycle.

  • Record data and report findings to the appropriate partners.

  • Maintain and improve code analysis; build and release tools.

  • Customize our continuous integration system to work with a growing team.

  • Improve integration between version control, build and incident tracking tools.

  • Build security settings; restore and back up technologies for databases and websites.

  • Work in a fast-paced, ambiguous environment while managing and prioritizing multiple responsibilities.

  • Address high availability concerns, weak points, performance bottlenecks, manually configured state, and information security issues.



  • Bachelor or Master’s degree in computer science or a related technical field or comparable experience

  • Solid understanding of backend technologies, development frameworks, server-side architecture, and containerization

  • Experience with typed functional programming, TypeScript, or both 

  • Familiarity with common DevOps patterns (containerization, continuous integration & deployment, etc.)

  • Strong background and experience in using version control, participating in code reviews, and taking part in the release process

  • Production experience with Postgres and other persistent data storage systems

  • Familiarity with Google Cloud

  • Comfortable working independently in a distributed environment

  • Ability to be flexible in collaborating with team members as well as cross functionally

  • Inclusive mindset with low ego

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
