Backend Developer (Go, Golang)

Aiva, the Amazon- and Google-funded leader in voice-powered healthcare, is looking for a Backend Engineer with an interest in learning new and exciting frameworks to help us continue our rapid growth.

(tl;dr: Google Cloud, AWS, Linux, Go, Kubernetes, gRPC, Alexa, Terraform, PostgreSQL, Redis, GraphQL, etc.)

At Aiva, we create platforms to empower healthcare organizations. To do so, we research and choose the best technologies that we can find, and our core engineering team builds and maintains systems based on those technologies.

We're looking for a teammate who loves to create and maintain such software platforms, someone who enjoys working with a wide variety of programming languages, operating systems, toolkits, and cloud platforms. As that teammate, you will be expected to have a keen eye for small details, an ability to dive deeply into many different technologies, and a genuine interest in taking on responsibilities from every part of the software development stack. We're looking for someone who is truly interested in the practice of modern computing, from coding to Kubernetes.

In addition to technical competence, the teammate we seek is someone who is firmly aligned with our master values: all core engineers at Aiva must be comfortable as not only students, but also as teachers; and, above all, skillful communicators.


  • Engaging closely with Aiva leaders to understand product direction
  • Implementing new features and enhancing existing ones using agreed-upon strategies
  • Mastering the features offered by the Aiva platform itself
  • Coordinating with other teams within Aiva in order to create the best solutions possible
  • Evaluating new tech, and determining whether it might benefit our development efficiency

Core Skills & Experience

  • Experience with the command line, code versioning tools (git), and other technical essentials
  • Experience with these technologies or similar ones: Google Cloud, AWS, Linux, Go, Kubernetes, gRPC, Alexa, Terraform, PostgreSQL, Redis, GraphQL, etc.
  • Ability to collaborate and coordinate with different teams in order to develop solutions
  • Ability to understand business requirements and turn them into working technical solutions

About Us

Aiva is the voice operating system for better care. We use Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and other voice assistants to empower patients and seniors throughout their care journey. They enjoy more entertainment options, better control of their environment and closer communication with their care team. For example, when you tell Aiva what you want, she understands and routes your request to the most appropriate caregiver, who uses our proprietary mobile app to triage and respond to requests in their own voice.

Aiva is based in Los Angeles. Hospital clients include Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and post-acute clients include Amica Senior Lifestyles. Aiva investors include the Google Assistant Investments Program, the Alexa Fund, Act One Ventures, Mucker Capital and the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator. We are growing quickly and looking to expand our team. Some folks work remotely, and we're open to candidates for this position who don't live in LA.
