Founding Full-Stack Software Engineer

Job / Role Title

Founding Full-Stack Software Engineer

Company Overview

At Arlo, we believe good health insurance does not have to break the bank. We are revolutionizing health insurance for small and medium-sized employers by offering affordable plans that are up to 20% cheaper than the incumbents (United, Cigna, etc). We empower low-income earners with better insurance options and provide them with exceptional support throughout their healthcare journeys. By making high-value care options more easily accessible, we lower premiums, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs.
Our founders have extensive experience building modern, user-friendly interfaces on top of slow-moving incumbents and legacy infrastructure - working on claims analytics at Palantir and McKinsey, and benefits administration systems at a Y-Combinator startup. We raised a $4M seed round from Upfront Ventures, 8VC, and General Catalyst, and are now looking to grow our team!
Transforming health insurance is a tough battle - but the mission of bringing affordable health care is worth fighting for. We are hard-working, team-oriented, value diverse opinions and debate, and hire for a hands-on mentality.

Team Overview & Role Impact

As Arlo’s founding full-stack software engineer, you will build the foundation for the first health plan with a relentless focus on simplifying the complex healthcare journey. Your work will be in the hands of members, employers, and brokers. Some of the projects you will be working on:
Member Services App - Our modern, member services application is the first point of care for our members, who use our application to find the right provider for their condition, learn about affordable options for their healthcare and medications, access virtual primary/urgent/mental care, receive expert opinions on their diagnoses, refill their prescriptions without going to the doctor, understanding how much their healthcare will cost before going to the doctor, and much more. Our member services application delivers a personalized experience that is critical to improving healthcare outcomes.
Proactive Member Outreach - You will work with our Care Navigation Team to identify patterns in member claims data and behavior to build automated workflows to identify members in need of help, and develop novel engagement strategies to get members back on track with their healthcare.
