Backend Engineer



Software Engineering
United States
Posted on Friday, May 17, 2024

Noom is a digital healthcare company that connects people to content, coaching, community, and clinicians to build healthy habits and promote better living. We’re a mission-driven, high-growth organization that’s powered by science, technology, and world-class talent.

We are always looking to connect with Software Engineers who are passionate about building the tools to help our users improve their lives. We value people who are not afraid to dig into other people’s code, think that code is the best documentation, and like to experiment with new technologies but understand the risk of pushing them to production. We like to work with engineers who believe learning a concept is more important than learning a framework. They pick technologies outside their comfort zone when they believe they’re the best tool for solving a particular problem. Noom’s engineering team is a mission-driven team, powered by science, technology, and world-class talent. As a senior team member, you will be at the forefront of our top challenges, solving complex technical problems centered around habits, behavior, and lifestyle.

What You’ll Do

  • Working on problems that affect the lives of real people. Our users depend on us to positively change their health and lives.
  • Basing your work on scientifically-proven, peer-reviewed methodologies that medical professionals design
  • Collaborating with an onsite and offsite team -- about 50% of our engineering team is fully remote; we worry about results, not time spent in seats.

What We Look For

  • 3+ years of experience designing and managing complex web-based applications, with a focus on picking the right tool for the job. We are built on AWS technologies and our teams use Django, Java/Kotlin, Spring, React, with MySQL and PostgreSQL as the backing data store, but we’re always looking for technologies that can make our job easier.
  • An appreciation for the importance of striking a balance between getting code out quickly and following best practices. We move fast, but we like to build good software and manage risk carefully.
  • Excellent communicator: you’re comfortable explaining technical problems in person and writing.
  • Team player: you enjoy teaching new concepts to, and collaborating with, the team.
  • Strong sense of responsibility and ownership; you will come from an environment where people are responsible for their own code.

What Makes This Job Amazing

  • You’ll be helping millions of people lead healthier lives every day
  • You’ll experience huge learning & professional growth opportunities. Noom believes in supporting you; we’ll cover the cost of books, courses, conferences… you name it!
  • You’ll become part of our transparent, high-performing, and close-knit team.
