We're looking for Software Engineering Managers who are passionate about helping us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career. 

What you'll do

In this role you’ll lead extraordinary software engineers while remaining hands-on with coding and technical architecture. You will lead a software engineering team in building products while maintaining a high quality bar with scalable and reusable technology. In addition you’ll also: 

  • Contribute hands-on to our products and infrastructure
  • Act as player-coach and champion engineering standards
  • Develop and mentor engineering and leadership talent
  • Lead technical planning
  • Contribute to strategic and tactical product planning
  • Be responsible for the delivery and operation of high-quality software that helps Flatiron to grow

Flatiron engineers work day-to-day with oncologists, product leaders, and data experts. In this role you'll have a chance to expand your communication skills and provide mentorship outside of engineering. 

Who you are

We welcome seasoned leaders who are enthusiastic about mentorship, coaching, and designing elegant solutions to complex problems. You're a dedicated people leader who recognizes that the success of an engineering team comes from its engineers. You have a track record of leading high performing teams that successfully deliver scalable products in an agile technology company or a startup.

  • You have strong hands-on technical skills and can contribute to coding and architecture
  • You are experienced in leading through influence
  • You have a minimum of two years experience managing engineers
  • You recognize the value of performance, reliability, and scalability of systems
  • You regularly anticipate technical issues and make architectural and design decisions to avoid them

You're also excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You’re a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make an important impact. 

If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron.
