The Role

U.S. healthcare is frustrating and deeply flawed. Cedar’s mission is to drive better outcomes for everyone involved, including providers, insurance companies and the people they serve. At a time when consumer-friendly healthcare experiences are more critical than ever, our platform is uniquely equipped to solve problems that lead to billing issues and administrative waste. 

The Product Security team at Cedar combines deep application security expertise with software development in order to help build our patient-focused solutions efficiently and safely. As a Sr. Software Engineer, you will work with an inquisitive, diverse, and experienced team on a platform that is rapidly scaling. You’ll help solve problems that matter, affecting tens of millions of patients annually.

Our core tenets include using good judgment and having the autonomy to be successful. Your role will be to assess risk across the company and make decisions about the risk we should prioritize. On an average day you might participate in a security-focused design review, write code to create new security tooling, or create educational materials to improve security awareness across the company. At Cedar, we don’t require experience with particular languages, but deep familiarity with modern and industry-standard technologies in our tech stack is always a plus.
