    Putting consumers at the center of the healthcare experience

    Zest Health is a technology company creating a new health and benefits experience. Our mobile solution and concierge service empowers members to be savvier healthcare consumers who are happier, smarter, and more confident using and navigating the healthcare system.

    Founded in 2013, Zest Health is venture-backed by a well-respected group of healthcare and consumer technology investors, including 7wire Ventures, Lightbank, Zaffre Investments, Martin Ventures, Dallas Venture Partners, and LSAN/Azimuth Ventures.

    Our growing team is made up of smart, dedicated business leaders, healthcare professionals, engineers, and entrepreneurs. We're crafty and methodical about our approach to product development, and we rally around a shared purpose of putting consumers at the center of their healthcare experience.

    Product & Engineering Culture

    At Zest Health, we're excited about the opportunity, as well as our ability, to design and engineer solutions for our members and customers. Now approaching our 3rd year, we've built a strong monthly cadence delivering tested code to production.

    We embrace Scrum methodology and daily stand-ups as a way to more quickly communicate challenges amongst the team and make use of extensive user stories, wireframes and high-resolution art to guide our sprints.

    Zest's Technology

    Zest Health engineering team members have the opportunity to operate across our entire system and specialize in the different aspects of our platform. These areas include front-end web applications in support of our operations, back-end technology and implementation, QA & automation of our test suites and framework, consumer-facing mobile applications, and data integration workflows. As a cloud-hosted solution atop Microsoft Azure, we are built using MVC.NET (C#), AJAX, Knockout, React.JS and PhoneGap. Our membership continues to grow rapidly, providing you with the opportunity to work on production-ready use cases that will quickly allow you to find your code in production and in use by our members, teammates and customers.

    We expect all of our engineers to bring a desire to both offer and receive mentorship and an eagerness to share knowledge amongst each other and with the community.

    You will have the hardware configuration you need to be at your best, as well as a strong roster of teammates who all believe in each other and their ability to learn and grow together, personally and professionally, in support of our mission.
