At Collective Health, we're modernizing employer-sponsored health insurance and building the first healthcare solution that is highly scalable, accurate, and people actually look forward to interacting with. We believe that with a modern software stack, a small, dedicated team can replace entrenched 5000-person incumbents. We are now in our 6th year of innovating US health care and we are rapidly growing in all dimensions: our customers, our users, and in the number of engineers building our health care technology solutions.

As an engineering team, we believe good code is easy to read and understand. We love automation, code reviews, and continuous integration and expect all of our engineers to continually teach as well as learn. Our company as a whole places a high priority on the overall member experience, including customer support (you shouldn't have to wait on hold ever), legal language (you shouldn't have to be a lawyer to read your health plan), and intuitive web design.

We are looking for an experienced manager capable of leading fullstack product engineers to connect our members to the right care at the right time. Collective Health is experiencing constant growth, in this role you will be responsible for growing our team by working with recruiting to hire new talent as well as develop existing team members.

You will need to lead with empathy, curiosity and a desire to solve hard problems both technical and organizational. This team owns all member facing touchpoints from our Member Portal to digital and print versions of health insurance cards and beyond. Producing these accurately and at scale takes real innovation in the healthcare space. Our tech stack is a distributed system of Java and Node services with portals written Angular and React.
