Coder II – Remote


  • You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Coding Specialist II.
  • You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.
  • You’re equally comfortable with coding guidelines, medical terminology and working as part of an interdisciplinary team.
  • You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.


This position is a remote / virtual position, so you may reside anywhere within the United States.

  • System Services is our Corporate Headquarters in Broomfield, Colorado and is located within the Oracle campus. SCL Health is a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization dedicated to improving the well-being of the people we serve.
  • Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.


  • Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.
  • We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
  • We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
