Senior Software Engineer, Front End

Forward - San Francisco, CA

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. We are scaling our engineering team and looking for world-class engineers with experience and expertise in building intuitive web applications. As an early member of our engineering team, you’ll have a key role in building the future of healthcare from first principles.

Forward was founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber. We are funded by some of the world's best investors and entrepreneurs including Founder's Fund, Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt (Google/Alphabet Chairman), Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder), and Garrett Camp (Uber co-Founder).

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

    • Tackle problems on the boundary of software, hardware, and the real world.
    • Own front-end development for customer-facing portions of our core product and marketing activities
    • Work across multiple teams, including growth marketing, product management, engineering, design, medical, and operations; utilize your background in A/B, user flow testing and managing dynamic content
    • You’ll expand to work with Forward’s design team, translating mocks to premium, responsive UI including performant animations across browsers and platforms
    • You’ll develop reusable libraries and components useful across all teams at Forward
    • Work with top-flight software and hardware engineering talent from places like Google, Amazon, Nvidia, Palantir, and NASA JPL.
    • Own entire projects while working alongside cross-functional teams of doctors, designers, and operators.
    • Your work will directly contribute to saving and improving people’s lives. For real. :)

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:

    • Impact - You’re deeply mission-driven and you think there’s more to life than software that enables puppy ears to be superimposed on photos. Although we concede those are cute.
    • UI/UX Experience - You have rapid prototyping experience, as well as some formal training or professional experience in design/animation and a strong portfolio of good-looking, high-performance webpages.
    • Product passion - You care about the bits you ship ending up in users’ hands. You don’t really need a product manager because you’re basically one yourself.
    • Entrepreneurship - You’re a self-starter who loves to own things end-to-end. You don’t ask for permission - you’re too busy making things happen.
    • Team player - You know how to make those around you better and feed off their energy. You take care of your teammates.
    • Curiosity - You like to mess around with computer vision, hardware hacking, or bioinformatics in your free time? You made your own smart mirror? Boy have we got some fun things for you…
    • Proficient in HTML5 & CSS3, and Javascript (ES5/6) and how they work in the browser.
    • Familiarity with one or more major frameworks preferred (React.js, Vue.js, Backbone.js, Angular, Ember, etc.)
    • Experience with and opinions about complex design systems. You’re familiar with a constellation of tools such as Figma and Photoshop.
    • B.A. or B.S. or equivalent experience in computer science, engineering, or another technical or design field
    • You have a minimum of 2 years experience working in a related field
WHY JOIN FORWARD?

We don’t want to just move dollars around the healthcare industry - we want to rebuild it and fix it. All of it. You’d be a major part of the story behind one of the most ambitious startup attempts of the past decade and you’d work with a team of people who want to use their talents for good.
