Software Engineer

Remote   |   Full time


Tembo Health is a virtual medical practice that helps patients in rural nursing homes get care in hard to access specialties like psychiatry and cardiology. We’re backed by a well-known accelerator - ERA - and other investors. We already have traction in NY, TX and MI and are scaling upon our success. 

In other words, it’s a great time to get in on the ground floor!


We're building an engineering team to grow our telemedicine platform and succeed at scale. This is a tremendous opportunity to influence the growth of a new team and build novel and impactful solutions in our fast-growing company.



  • Build products that enable doctors and nurses to meaningfully improve the quality of care of our patients.

    • Work across engineering, product, and design to identify user needs and ship high quality products.

    • Contribute both to existing applications and develop new ones from scratch.

    • Leverage existing APIs (e.g. medical record systems, video conferencing, digital connected devices) to build feature rich applications quickly and efficiently.

    • Design and ship data insight tools for better clinical decision making.

  • Enable data driven decision making

    • Your code will help make us make better decisions in our business, so we can scale our impact on the world and help more people.

    • Leverage internal and external data sources to produce actionable metrics,  help us grow our business and maximize our patient impact as quickly as possible.

  • Handle patient private data securely and privately

    • Everything we do must treat patient and partner data according to the highest standards of privacy and security. Integrate those principles into your daily workflow and designs. 


Success in 30-60 days is:

  • Working collaboratively across eng, product, and design.

  • Understanding outstanding customer needs and designing features to help them.

  • Shipping real code that impacts our users’ daily lives.

  • Contributing to the way we work and our underlying infrastructure. Help support a growing engineering organization!


Success after that is:

  • Develop wholesale new applications as needed.

  • Gain experience talking to and iterating with real customers, so that we can help them more effectively.

  • We don’t know what we don’t know, so, you’ll contribute in meaningful ways you identify to the future of the engineering organization and the entire company.
