Senior Software Engineer - SmithRx - SF

About SmithRx

Every year, half of a trillion dollars flow through pharmacy benefit managers, with more than 90% of that money running through systems designed in the late 80s running Cobol. Products built on top of these systems require tons of manual intervention, are result in unnecessary healthcare costs for consumers and employers. At SmithRx, we’re building a modern pharmacy benefit manager from the bottom up to change this.
