This is a Co-Op opportunity for current college students only who attend a school that provides academic credit for participating in the alternating 3-term co-op program. If you are no longer in school, please consider our full-time Application Engineering opportunities.

Must be located in Georgia.


At Waystar, we are building the future of healthcare payments. We now facilitate patient payments for 5% of the US population which means our technology is helping create a better payment experience for over 30 million patients and in turn, providing incredible value to healthcare providers across the U.S.

We're looking for a 3-Semester Application Engineer Co-Op who wants to help simplify and unify healthcare payments across the revenue cycle. We run an agile development team with weekly sprints to quickly deliver code to our clients. Our team prides itself on rapid development, so as a Co-Op, your code will make it to production many times during your term. That's right, at Waystar, our Co-Ops actually push code into production.

The Opportunity
We're looking for students interested in the alternating 3-semester Co-Op program beginning in either the Summer or Fall of 2024.

As a Co-Op, you will be like any other Application Engineer on the team. We expect you to design, develop and test new features and enhancements on our platform. To do that, you will work with peers, Team Leads, Manager, Directors and the VP of Engineering along with the wider business to build web-scale products.

Working knowledge of Linux, MySQL and/or any object-oriented design (PHP, Java, .Net, Ruby) is a plus. But if you're missing one of those and you're eager to learn, we'll teach you what you need to know!
