At Alto, we're creating a completely new pharmacy experience from the ground up. We use advanced technology and human empathy to advance a broken pharmacy industry into the modern era, and to make high-quality healthcare accessible to all. Our mission at Alto is to fulfill medicine’s true purpose—to improve quality of life—for everyone who needs it. We do this by owning the entire process end to end, and leveraging our Patient App, our Provider App, and our home-grown pharmacy platform, to drive that process efficiently.
Our Engineering team is now 45 people across our SF and Denver offices, and we have plans to double the org to a total of 100 engineers by the end of the year. We have 3 pharmacies up and down the coast of California, 1 in Denver, 1 in Seattle, and 1 in Vegas, and will be opening in 5 new cities over the next several months.
As an Alto Engineer, you will own projects from end-to-end, tackle technical challenges of scale, and always put our patients first. You are scrappy and resourceful, unafraid to dive into an unknown project, but humble enough to make mistakes and iterate. You thrive on speed and wearing many hats, and you enjoy working on different parts of the tech stack (we use Ruby on Rails, React, React Native, and Go).
Within your 1st month, you will ship small features to Alto’s products. You’ll familiarize yourself with our tech stack, code review process, and codebase to learn how everything connects together. You’ll also shadow our Pharmacy Operations, Patient Care, and Fulfillment Teams to understand Alto from every perspective, and you’ll even speak to real patients on a support call. By your 2nd month, you will contribute to the planning, scoping, and code of a larger project. By your 3rd month, you’ll possess the confidence and skillset to own and ship a large project or feature. You’ll feel comfortable within our codebase and be able to tackle bugs independently.
You are an ideal candidate if you:
Thrive in a dynamic fast-paced environment where you own products from start to finish, and make decisions quickly and independently. You may break things, but you fix them with speed.
Have 5+ years of experience writing production code.
Believe in Alto’s mission and our company values: Patients Come First, Leave No Patient Behind, Start with Empathy, Focus on Impact, Think Rigorously, and Be Humble.
