About Us

Nourish is on a mission to improve people’s health by making it easy to eat well. More than half of Americans have a chronic condition related to what they eat, and poor nutrition is the number one driver of preventable death.


Nourish is addressing this healthcare crisis by helping people eat better. We connect chronic disease patients with a Registered Dietitian via telehealth and get it covered by their health insurance.


We launched two years ago and already have hundreds of dietitians and tens of thousands of patients on the platform. Our patients span a wide range of nutrition-related conditions including diabetes, eating disorders, kidney disease, GI conditions, cancer, obesity / weight management, cardiovascular disease, and more. We are live in all 50 states.


We are growing quickly, have partnered with national health insurance companies and provider groups, and have raised over $44M from top-tier VCs including Index Ventures, Thrive Capital, Y Combinator, and Box Group, amongst others. Our angel investors include world-class healthcare founders from Oscar, Rightway Health, Headway, Spring Health, and Alto Pharmacy, as well as soccer star Alex Morgan and the founders from Olipop and Notion.

About the Role

As a an early member of our engineering team, you'll work closely with product, design, and engineering to deliver key features that will serve as the foundation for the Nourish core telenutrition platform for years to come. You'll own large sections of the codebase and help set timelines and deadlines for project deliverables. While you have full-stack development experience, you are interested in and are heavy on backend experience.


You'll be instrumental in executing on our product roadmap including building technology to scale our interactions with patients, dietitians, and insurance companies.


This role is full-time and open to remote candidates. Nourish also has an NYC office in the heart of Silicon Alley.

Key responsibilities:
  • Design, build, and ship new and existing products and features at high velocity and of high quality.
  • Drive the design and implementation of robust backend solutions that power our platform.
  • Continuously improve our engineering processes, tools, and systems that allow us to scale the code base, productivity, and the team.
  • Contribute to the estimations, planning and execution of projects, features, and integrations.
  • Maintain and improve our existing codebase.
  • Write fully tested, high quality and performant code.

Our tech stack:

  • React / React Native
  • Typescript
  • NodeJS / Express
  • TailwindCSS
  • Prisma
  • PostgreSQL
  • AWS/AppRunner

You'll love this role if:

  • Nourish’s Values and Mission & Vision & Success resonate with you.
  • You’re passionate about Nourish’s mission. You’re interested in nutrition and are eager to be part of solving America’s healthcare crisis.
  • You think work should feel like play. We are a close-knit team and care about having a lot of fun at work — we want you to feel the same.
  • You do your own stunts. You like to build and ship new things and can take a project from idea through implementation with minimal outside help when necessary.
  • You want to be deeply involved in product and design. We’re an early-stage startup — product and engineering are closely intertwined. Reach out if you have experience with or love working closely with product and design.
We’d love to hear from you if you:
  • Have 5+ years industry experience as a software engineer.
  • Are interested in early-stage startups.
  • Have recent experience with our tech stack, and/or are confident you can cross train and up skill quickly where needed.
  • Are an independent, fast learner, and get excited about learning new technologies.
  • Are a proactive team player with a desire to impact our team, our product, and our customers.
  • Are passionate about engineering and building a product end-to-end, through the design, coding, testing, and deployment phases.
