About Pear Therapeutics

Pear Therapeutics is the leader in prescription digital therapeutics or PDTs. Pear aims to redefine medicine by discovering, developing, and delivering clinically validated software-based therapeutics to provide better outcomes for patients, smarter engagement and tracking tools for clinicians, and cost-effective solutions for payers. Pear has a pipeline of products and product candidates across therapeutic areas, including the first three PDTs with disease treatment claims from the FDA. Pear’s lead product, reSET®, for the treatment of substance use disorder, was the first PDT to receive marketing authorization from FDA to treat disease. Pear’s second product, reSET-O®, for the treatment of opioid use disorder, was the first PDT to receive Breakthrough Designation. Pear’s third product, Somryst™, for the treatment of chronic insomnia, was the first PDT submitted through FDA’s traditional 510(k) pathway while simultaneously reviewed through FDA’s Software Precertification Pilot Program.

As a Full Stack Staff Software Engineer, you are responsible for designing and developing software, including work on our web client (React), mobile apps (React Native), and backend (node.js/TypeScript/nest.js). You have been at startups before and are comfortable with ambiguity and change. You can make pragmatic decisions about when to accrue additional tech debt and when to pay it off, and are able to effectively communicate the rationale so that our products grow and scale effectively. You can make technology choices and lead small teams of developers to effectively deliver initiatives. You are empathetic, engaged, and excited. This position is remote! We have offices in Boston, San Francisco and Raleigh and would welcome people that are in and around those geographical areas.

Your Responsibilities Include:

  • Contributing to the entire SDLC, from ideation through post-production maintenance
  • Building new products and evolving existing ones
  • Being an active member of the hiring team and mentoring other engineers
  • Providing technical leadership to influence the future of technology and architecture
  • Demonstrating clear vision and an ability to make pragmatic design and delivery choices
  • Mentoring, pairing with, and up-leveling other engineers within the Pear organization

The ideal candidate will have:

  • 5+ years of experience delivering production software
  • Strong testing discipline — you don't have to practice TDD, but you do not ship untested code
  • Experience with front-end technologies, including React and/or React Native
  • Experience with Service Oriented Architecture and distributed systems — ideally, you have stewarded monoliths through a decomposition into microservices
  • Broad and deep technical skills ranging from backend services and databases through the UI
  • Excellent communication skills, including the ability to communicate technical topics to non-technical audiences
  • A sense of ownership and a commitment to delivering value to customers — you write code to deliver impact to end users, not to satisfy requirements on a page
