At Brave Care, we are building the future of healthcare for kids. We are rethinking what getting care for your kiddo looks like, in order to create the best experience for kids and parents. That means building everything from the tech to the clinics, end to end ourselves.

Brave Care is full of kind people doing the best work of their careers. Self-starters who want to work collaboratively to achieve more. We learn from each other and support each other through all the challenges of building the future of children’s health care. We offer competitive salaries and benefits but more than that, work that matters. Making the world a better place is a cliche in the startup world, but the impact we have on children and families can change their lives.

Families love us!

We have over 250 5-star Google reviews and > 95 NPS. Here’s a few things parents have said about us:

“This place is amazing. The entire staff was so warm and welcoming to me and my children. They had my kids comfortable and laughing almost immediately. We didn’t feel rushed at all, and communication was clear and thorough. It was hands down the best doctor experience I’ve had since my kids were born.”

“What a fantastic place! They made what could have been a traumatic experience one of joy. We came in for stitches and left with a sticker and smiles all around. They are friendly and genuinely care about the families they serve.”

Job Description

We’re a growing team building tools that directly impact our patients and families, as well as our clinic staff. We work quickly but calmly. We’re looking for an engineer with some great backend chops. You'll be responsible for our backend architecture and implementation, security and reliability, and taking projects from concept to completion. You'll work with wonderful engineers, designers, and medical providers. You will have autonomy and creativity and see the impact of the code you write.

Everyone on our team works across the stack. We use Typescript, Node.js, React Native, Hasura, Postgres, and GraphQL to build our mobile apps, website, and backend.

This is a full-time, remote position (the US only) at a fast-growing startup.
