Senior Software Engineer - Backend (NYC area only)

    • New York, NY

Nice to meet you, we’re Vesta Healthcare (formerly HT [Hometeam] Health).

Vesta Healthcare  is a startup with a simple mission: Delivering extraordinary outcomes by unlocking the power of caregivers. Caregivers are one of the largest, most untapped resources in the healthcare delivery system and are the unsung heroes of their care recipients. Yet despite their vital role, they are largely unsupported and invisible to the healthcare ecosystem. 

At Vesta Healthcare, we enable people with personal assistance to thrive at home, in their community by assuring the people they rely on, their caregivers, have the resources, data, and support they need.  We achieve this through a combination of analytics, technology, services, and deep healthcare expertise. Our analytics help identify and target the right people and populations. Our technology creates real-time connectivity and actionable data out of observations. Our services connect to real people who can help when needs arise, and our healthcare expertise helps us understand how we create value for both payers and providers. 

Our program monitors in real-time, identifying issues before they become health events, and helping connect those in need with those who can help via technologies such as video, chat, and telephone. Our technology platform includes home-based mobile applications, a clinical dashboard, and data analytics on data not previously available to health professionals. We are disrupting a $109 billion industry and have just closed our latest funding round with a blue-chip list of investors.


We’re looking to add to our team of engineers who care deeply about our mission.  
The engineering team is passionate, highly collaborative, curious, and excited about the opportunity to work on some of the most challenging problems in our healthcare system. We're inspired to create ground-breaking software to support our mission and the caregiver heroes who do incredibly important work in caring for older adults.
