About Flare

Founded by a software developer and a physician, Flare Health helps patients find the right doctor faster.

We are a health tech startup based in Chicago and NYC. We work with leading hospital systems across the country to connect patients needing specialized care to the right expert physician.

As a company, we value collaboration, openness, seeing things differently and being sensitive to the humanity that connects us. The mission is what gets us up in the morning.

This is an opportunity to work with a thoughtful and passionate team, and with founder leadership that values and understands product and will provide you with the right conditions to do your best work. Moses (CEO/co-founder) has been writing code since he was nine, has a physics PhD from the University of Chicago, and got to pair program with Kent Beck after giving a talk on Mob Programming at XP Universe 2001. Sehjin (CMO/co-founder) is a fellowship-trained, double-board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist, who also studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and Parsons School of Design.

Your first year with us

Here’s how we imagine your first year with us.

You’ll spend the first month getting up to speed on our platform by collaborating with the rest of the team, pair programming to commit a production feature in your first two weeks.

You will work full stack on both our Ember mobile app and Rails and Spring Boot backend services, iterating on new features until we demonstrate they have a meaningful impact for users.

You will help us tackle a diverse array of projects, from major enhancements to our secure communication infrastructure, to creating a desktop version of our mobile application, to dev ops improvements to increase automation and developer happiness.

As a senior developer you will help shape a top-notch development team, leading by example and helping to guide the team’s technical decisions and practices.

We’ll look back on our first year knowing we did great work together. And three years from now you will know that you made healthcare more effective, better coordinated, and more human for patients, physicians, and healthcare organizations across the country.


We offer a competitive salary and benefits that include company-paid platinum BCBS PPO medical and dental coverage and a retirement plan with company matching. Due to COVID-19 we are currently operating as a remote company. When it becomes safe to work in an office together again, our plan is to take a remote-first approach to continue to support coworkers that live outside Chicago or New York City.
