Combining our technology platform and team of health care experts, we deliver customized solutions for our clients to empower their members in improving their health – from finding a doctor to learning how to manage high cholesterol.

Novus is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities.

Who You Are:

We’re looking for a software engineer who loves to create cool user experiences to be a part of our team at Novus Health. We’re looking for a JavaScript, HTML and CSS specialist who is always thinking about how we can make people’s lives better with well-written and efficient code – you have the mind of an engineer and the eye of a designer. We want someone with experience developing digital products on different platforms. You’ll work closely with our design team and collaborate with our clients on projects that affect the lives of millions of people worldwide. If you’re analytical, naturally curious, likes challenges, have a good eye for design and dream of being part of a growing company, this might be the job for you.


The Role:

You will build user experiences that are clean, responsive and elegant. You will write code that is scalable – for example, when we launch 400 sites, you won’t code 400 front end applications. You interact with backend APIs and work closely with HTML, CSS and Javascript. You will work in a continuous integration environment and build interfaces for Web and Mobile, including Responsive Web and Native Apps. We’re looking for someone who will take the lead and be the go-to person when it comes to UX engineering.
