First Dollar is a technology company that builds health spending benefits infrastructure. We’re at the center of fintech and healthcare, and we’re excited by our opportunity to build tools that simplify health spending benefits like FSAs, HSAs, and others so everyone understands and enjoys using them. Venture-backed and founded by a repeat founding team with prior exits to athenahealth & Expedia, First Dollar has ambitious plans to reshape the healthcare system to work the way it should.

First Dollar is seeking a Lead Software Engineer to join our team. Our web platform powers First Dollar's core business, enabling our members access to their healthcare savings when they need it most. As an early engineering hire, you’ll have a significant opportunity to shape both our technical strategy and engineering culture.

You will:

  • Work closely with design and product to ship delightful, engaging products using React, TypeScript, NodeJS, and GraphQL
  • Collaborate on architecture decisions, ensuring that we are adapting and evolving to meet First Dollar's scaling business needs
  • Set short to medium term technical direction, creating plans to help achieve goals
  • Make others better through code reviews, thorough documentation, technical guidance, and mentoring
  • Contribute to and improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
  • Join an environment where different backgrounds, cultures, industry and life experiences are embraced and valued
  • Be exposed to several facets of building a business outside of just your role as a software engineer

Our engineering team is built on the principle of humans over code. We are a tight-knit group of lifelong learners in a constant quest to be a team that is greater than the sum of its parts. Come join us

Whenever possible, First Dollar wants to provide our team with the flexibility to work in the location that makes the most sense for them. For those that prefer an office setting, this role may be based in our Austin location. If you prefer to work from your home, we can accommodate that for most positions and locations across the United States. Applicants must be authorized to work for any employer in the U.S. We are unable to sponsor or take over sponsorship of an employment Visa at this time.
