Role Overview



As a key member of Accolade’s product development organization, Software Engineers on our Accolade Cloud Platform team will be designing and building our next generation of end-to-end cloud-optimized products and services from the ground up. Each day you will be solving hard problems at internet scale using world-class modern tools and technologies.

A Day in the Life

  • Design and implement rich APIs and applications with a focus on customer satisfaction.
  • Technically lead the design and delivery of solutions end to end.
  • Work closely with product owners, designers, and other engineers to deliver innovative solutions and solve complex healthcare problems.
  • Manage individual sprint priorities, deadlines, and deliverables.
  • Proactively seek to improve engineering principles, processes, tools, and frameworks.
  • Be an expert in a broad range of design patterns and technologies.


A look outside the day to day: 

In addition to being able to carry out the above responsibilities, we're looking for someone comfortable working in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment that has experience with service oriented architecture including:

  • Engineers with both front-end and back-end development experience with advanced knowledge of multiple languages and frameworks such as Javascript, Node.js, Java, and Spring Boot to name a few.
  • Experience working on large-scale distributed systems.
  • Individuals who believe that delivery speed and code quality are not conflicting.
  • Take pride and ownership over everything you ship. It’s not “released” until it is correct.
  • Strong understanding of architectural patterns required for designing and building efficient, scalable, and maintainable micro-services and applications.
  • Engineers with deep passion and sense of ownership for the solutions they design, produce, and ship.
  • Experience modeling and querying in various persistence technologies including relational, document, and key-value stores.
  • Ability to collaborate with dependent teams, focusing on communication and accountability to deliver system-level solutions.
  • Comfortable working on a high-visibility, high-impact project.

Who we Are

Values we admire:

  • We find joy and purpose in serving others.
    • Making a difference is what we do. We do the right thing for the right reasons – and we do it well, even when it’s hard.
    • You operate from a perspective of truly caring about our employees, clients, and customers and creating value for them.
  • We are strong individually and together, we’re powerful.
    • We believe in each other, in honesty, and in having fun. You won’t find egos or office walls here because we aren’t defined by titles – but by actions, behaviors and results.
  • We roll up our sleeves and get stuff done.
  • We’re boldly and relentlessly reinventing healthcare.
    • We are a company changing the world, one person at a time.
    • Super high expectations? Bring it on? Our curiosity drives us.
  • You understand our desire to be the best place to work and that trust is the foundation of that.
