Sr. Software Engineer, Data

Los Angeles, California   |   Full Time

Wellth is a fast-growing digital health startup headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. Our mission is to help people living with chronic conditions make healthier choices, every day. 

Chronic disease is one of the largest challenges facing our nation. This challenge is largely created due to patient non-adherence to medications and care plans. Specifically, only ~50% of people with chronic conditions follow their care plan as prescribed. This creates enormous health and economic burdens on individuals, families, and communities that are largely preventable. 

Our platform deploys evidence-based interventions from behavioral economics through a mobile app which dramatically improves patient adherence, health outcomes, and costs of care. Wellth is at the forefront of designing powerful new tools rooted in behavioral science to deliver value to our customers, healthcare providers and insurers.

Behavioral Economics is at the heart of what we do. If you are a fan of books like Nudge, Freakonomics, and Predictably Irrational and were as excited as us when a Nobel Prize went to a professor of behavioral economics, then this is the place for you! 

Help us build and scale a platform that is helping hundreds of patients manage their care plan and improve their health. Visit us at for more information.
