Staff Software Engineer

Published on April 04, 2024

Each year, more than 65 million Americans seek help for a mental health condition. And due to a broken and frustrating system, 2 out of 3 of those individuals give up before ever getting the help they need. We can do better. We must do better. Our team is here to do just that. Our mission is to create a world where every person can access high- quality mental health care. We recognize that mental health issues can be complex and multifaceted, and we are dedicated to treating the whole person, not just the symptoms. We’re building the future of mental health care; a comprehensive behavioral health solution that helps every person access high quality care from a licensed professional, at a time that works for them and at a cost they can afford. Our approach to care is evidence-based, outcome-driven and compassionate. We empower our exceptional provider network to track progress throughout the care journey to ensure clients achieve their full potential.

We believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. We recognize that mental health issues can be complex and multifaceted, and we are dedicated to treating the whole person, not just the symptoms.

We aim to create a world where mental health is no longer stigmatized or marginalized, but rather is embraced as an integral part of one's overall well-being. 

We believe that by providing quality care that is both evidence-based and compassionate, we can empower individuals to take charge of their mental health and achieve their full potential. We are passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of those struggling with mental health issues and we strive to be a force for positive change in the field of mental healthcare.

About the Role

Rula's mission is to make mental healthcare work for everyone: patients, therapists, and healthcare systems. As a member of Rula’s Provider Access team, you’ll focus on building delightful software solutions to help therapists onboard onto Rula's system, and get to helping patients as quickly and seamlessly as possible.

We are looking for candidates who are interested in working on a small team within a fast-growing product.  

As a Staff Engineer, you will get to work across all of Rula's stack, both by contributing directly to our product and its development, as well as by driving meaningful technical conversations and solution-oriented decisions.

Technical Stack

Rula’s systems are written in Typescript/Node.js or Ruby on Rails, with React frontends. We use Postgres for our databases and everything is hosted on AWS. We also make heavy use of existing tools like Salesforce, Airtable, Typeform, etc. This has enabled us to scale very quickly with a small team but we’re now ready to bring much of this work in-house. We’re standing up the technical foundation that will power the future of the company. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have experience with the specific technologies in our stack, we’d still love to connect with you!
