Senior Software Engineer

USD 155k - 185k
JavaScript Git Django SQL Redis AWS Heroku Ruby Python PostgreSQL Machine Learning HTML

We are looking for experienced Software Engineers to join our engineering team. We have a small, highly-capable development team. Everyone on the team has a large impact on the growth and direction of the development team. We work heavily with the following technologies:

  • Python (latest version), Django 3.x, and a wide range of Python libraries
  • SQL databases, specifically Postgresql including features like Full Text Search
  • Data warehousing and processing tools like Amazon Redshift and Apache Airflow
  • Open source web infrastructure components, like memcached and Redis
  • Cloud environments, including AWS and Heroku
  • Large data sets and data pipelines, including private healthcare data
  • A range of machine learning tools, which we use to process and enhance our data

As you would be working for a start-up, your role would be wide-ranging. One day you might be building new features for a website, but the next day you might be building an ML model to help classify data. You would get to work with a wide range for exciting tools to find pragmatic solutions to challenging real-world problems. You would be able to leverage what you already know while having the opportunity to learn new things constantly.

We strongly encourage BIPOC, people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA+ folks to apply for any open roles of interest. Building a truly diverse team is a challenge that we do not shy away from. Healthcare affects all people differently, but it significantly affects those in underserved communities. With a robust, diverse team, we are stronger and better equipped to change the future of healthcare for all.

  • Write effective, scalable code.

  • Improve functionality of existing systems
  • Implement security and data protection solutions
  • Assess and prioritize feature requests
  • Coordinate with other team members to understand user requirements and provide technical solutions


  • 5+ years work experience in Python, or strong experience in another programming language and some exposure to Python
  • Expertise in at least one popular Python web framework (preferably Django) or a similar popular web framework in another language (like Ruby or Rails)
  • Good understanding of SQL and how to efficiently use databases to solve problems
  • Familiarity with front-end technologies (like JavaScript and HTML5)
  • Team spirit
  • Ability to work effectively in a remote environment
  • Good problem-solving skills
  • Good communication skills
  • Desire to learn new technologies
  • BSc in Computer Science, Engineering or relevant field, or equivalent experience/knowledge. We are happy to work with strong candidates with non-traditional educational backgrounds.

About Turquoise Health

At Turquoise, we're making healthcare pricing simpler, more transparent, and lower cost for everyone. Have you or a family member ever gotten an MRI, a lab, or even a straightforward surgery without knowing the cost in advance? That's bonkers, right? We're working to fix that.

We're a Series B startup backed by top VCs a16z, Box Group, Bessemer Venture Partners, Tiger Global, Adams Street, and Yosemite. Most importantly, we're an accomplished group of folks (moonlighting as authors, bass players, improv instructors, chefs, linguists, and trivia buffs) with a passion for improving healthcare. We're eager to find ambitious and well-rounded teammates to join us on this mission.

Job Location

Turquoise Health is a fully remote company based in the US. We work with team members and contractors in the US and around the world, but we operate on US business hours and work with clients entirely based in the US. For this role, we are seeking US-based candidates.
