What is Sempre Health?
Sempre Health uses dynamic pricing + SMS to reduce patients' out-of-pocket spend on drugs. 1 in 3 patients skips taking their meds because they are too expensive. We're on a mission to fix that. Patients receive texts like, "If you pick up your rx by Sunday you'll pay $20. If you wait until next week, this goes up to $30." Then, wherever they fill, Sempre's integrations with the pharmacy switch, ensure they get the right price.

In 2018, Sempre announced our $8M series A (prn.to/2S5ml2q), major partnerships with pharma manufacturers & PBMs (prn.to/2RiUc3k), and 12-month outcomes & expanding partnership with UPMC, the second largest integrated health system in the US (prn.to/2FLBhwE). Now that we are quickly bringing on new health plan partners, we are looking for people like you to help scale and deploy Sempre nationwide.

Why work here?
Work on something that matters - the product we’re building helps patients afford medications they need. As our eleventh teammate and fourth engineer, you’ll have both autonomy and responsibility. You will decide and own the most important projects. You’ll design new products and features from scratch, get team buy-in, implement, and deploy. You’ll play a crucial role in deciding which technologies we choose. We won’t add significant process, checks, and balances to your flow - we trust each other to produce high quality work.

You can also broaden your skill set beyond engineering: want to interact with patients? Take over patient support hours for a few days. Interested in government policy? We’re working directly with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid.

What you’ll work on
You’ll work all across the stack from backend python microservices to React web apps. Projects include:

• Alex: the brains behind Sempre used to create & edit personalized patient communication flows without any engineering resources.
• Pricing and pharmacy integrations: iterate on our incentive-based pricing algorithm to calculate the optimal price for each patient and integrate with the US pharmacy switch to deliver that price to any pharmacy in the country
• Admin tool: our web app for patient management that allows us to prioritize interventions for the most at-risk patients and track program progress.
• Security: we are HIPAA compliant, and treat security as a first-class feature in all our products

Who you are
• 4+ years of backend/full-stack engineering experience
• BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent
• Experience building & operating live, production systems
• Proficient with python
• Excited about working with small team
• Excellent team player & curious
