tl;dr: Early-stage startup hiring a couple remote backend software developers. We're seeking to improve people's metabolic health using new wearables and insights. Details about us, the role, and interview process below.
Levels is an early-stage startup working to improve peoples' metabolic health.
Poor metabolic health is a risk factor for many diseases, and few people have the right tools to create positive feedback cycles with their diet and exercise. We've seen massive value of using wearables, including continuous glucose monitors, to help behavioral change.
We're still in the scrappy startup phase, so are looking for people who are comfortable with ambiguity and having wide impact. We've been remote-first since Day 1, and care a ton about communication, autonomy, curiosity, and initiative.
We've been running a Beta pilot since 2019, and have thousands of happy paying customers who are using Levels to stabilize their energy levels, lose weight, optimize athletic performance, and learn strategies to reduce their risk of chronic disease. We came off the closed Beta for current Levels app in summer of 2022, and are now working on a CGM-optional version of our product offering to make it more affordable for our users.
Our team is highly experienced, and has started and sold companies before. We also love learning from each other, and are looking for people who bring a new set of experiences and backgrounds to our team.

First and foremost, we're looking for people who are excited about what we're doing—you don't need to know anything about metabolic health, but should be excited to learn. We're building in an entirely new space, so you'll be able to use creativity to help us solve problems and delight our customers.
Our back end web stack is Node/Typescript, Postgres, Redis, GraphQL, and deployed using Aptible and AWS. We use React Native and GraphQL for mobile, as well as React and tRPC on the front end.
As a backend software engineer, here are some common role responsibilities:
This list is not exhaustive at all, and you'll have a lot of autonomy over your work. Our team is composed of a diverse group of product-minded and mission-driven engineers.
